David Moyes’ sacking marks end of an era for Scottish managers

By Richard Wilson
BBC Scotland


The sacking of David Moyes is also an act against tradition.

The notion of Scottish managers delivering a certain kind of gruff authority, the ability to rouse an unimpeachable team spirit and winning mentality, is still ingrained in the consciousness of English football.

It stems from the lasting impacts made by Sir Matt Busby and Bill Shankly - two men who changed and shaped the destinies of Manchester United and Liverpool respectively, enabling the clubs to reach for dominance and glory - but also Jock Stein's triumph in Europe with Celtic and then the hard-edged, if at times darkly romantic, 27-year reign of Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.

Each of these men contributed to Scotland’s reputation for exporting outstanding managers, even when the playing pool is bereft of world class quality.

There was a tier below the four icons, with the likes of Kenny Dalglish, George Graham, Gordon Strachan, Tommy Docherty, and Graeme Souness all making noteworthy progress, and then the contemporary figures followed.

Moyes was once the epitome of this new breed, ahead of managers such as Paul Lambert, Alex McLeish, Owen Coyle - born, raised and deeply influenced by life in Glasgow and Scottish football, despite representing the Republic of Ireland once due to his family roots - Billy Davies, Steve Clarke, and Malky Mackay.

There was a time, almost three years ago, when the English Premier League season started with seven clubs being managed by Scots: Ferguson, Moyes, Dalglish, Coyle, McLeish, Lambert and Steve Kean. Yet by this summer there might be none left, since Lambert’s future at Aston Villa is uncertain while the club’s American owner, Randy Lerner, seeks a buyer.

Success runs in cycles, and it was almost a freakish statistic that so many Scots were prominent in the top tier of English football in 2011. Even so, it reflected an old conviction that the coal mining and industrial working class communities of Glasgow and its surrounding valleys were a breeding ground for managerial nous.

Moyes was responsible, in some senses, for maintaining the lineage, since contemporaries like Coyle, McLeish and Lambert took encouragement from the way he made his name in England, but also enjoyed the merit of the ongoing reflection of a successful Scottish manager.

Ultimately, though, the tradition of valuing the worth of managers from north of the border was sustained and prolonged by Ferguson. He has been central to the careers of so many managers that describe him as the Godfather of English football was both a cliché and a truth. Chairmen across the country sought his counsel when searching for a new manager, and Ferguson’s recommendation was often decisive.

Managers also sought his advice as well as his patronage. His own career is not undermined by a moment of misjudgement - which is what the appointment of Moyes will now always be considered - but it does diminish the extent of Ferguson’s ongoing influence. The age of his authority, and the lineage that stretches back to Busby, Shankly and Stein, is over.

All managers now are formally qualified, their individualism heavily moulded by the structure of Uefa’s coaching qualifications, and few in western Europe will come from the same industrial, impoverished, working class backgrounds as the coal villages of Ayrshire and the shipyards of Govan.

Moyes, born and brought up in a tenement close in Thornwood before the family moved to the more comfortable Bearsden, was the bridge between the old and new generation of managers. There are impressive Scots currently at work, among them Derek McInnes, Stuart McCall, Dougie Freedman and Darren Ferguson, but the trend of appointing foreign managers is now firmly entrenched in the upper tiers of English football.

Moyes could command another prominent appointment, but others will have to work their way up, slowly and doggedly. Sir Alex Ferguson’s opinion will still hold cache, but that is diminishing, too, so it feels as though an era has ended. Scots can still excel, and the Scottish Football Association’s coach education programme is widely admired, but the network of influence in England has now been drastically curtailed.”

…Seems to me like someone has been airbrushed from Scottish football’s proud history of managers.

Hilarious stuff from Auntie McBeeb.

Biased, Bogtrotting Cunts.

I am a tad cynical about David Cameron’s words of encouragement for Christians and his exhortation for believers to be more evangelical. It sounded a bit patronising and I am sure that Cameron’s policies would have been robustly rebuked byevangelicals in Britain’s Christian past. That said, it beats a PM who “doesn’t do God” or […]

Thanks guys

Rangers boss Ally McCoist set for budget showdown with chief executive Graham Wallace



THE Rangers manager will meet with chief exec’ Wallace over the next couple of days to find out how much money he will have to spend on players this summer.

ALLY McCOIST will hold budget talks with Graham Wallace in the next 48 hours – as the Rangers chief executive confirmed his 120-day review into the business of the club has been completed.
Wallace didn’t shed any light on its findings but McCoist, who watched his team beat Ayr United 2-1 at Ibrox last night thanks to a Bilel Mohsni double, confirmed talks will be held before the weekend to determine what kind of budget he will have for his assault on the Championship next season.
McCoist said: “I haven’t spoken to Graham yet but there’s no doubt I will sit down with him before the end of the week. We plan to meet tomorrow or Thursday.”
In last night’s match programme, Ibrox chief Wallace made it clear
the club would, as 
promised, update fans 
on the review on Friday.
He said: “We have completed our review and the board has been engaged in developing the future strategy to equip the club to be competitive once again at the top of Scottish football.
“As announced, we will be issuing an update on the business review later this week to give supporters more insight into both the current position of the club and, more importantly, our future aspirations.”
However, the Union 
of Fans group issued 
leaflets to supporters entering Ibrox last night, describing the board’s review as a diversion.
The leaflets read: “The so-called review was always designed to buy the board time – it’s an insult.
“It has been timed so that fans only have days to consider it before the season-ticket deadline.
“The timing is intended to panic season-ticket holders into renewing.”
Meanwhile, McCoist admitted Rangers’ display last night wasn’t up to the standard he expects but he admired how his players found a way to win.
He said: “For long periods we weren’t great.
“We were disappointing and I didn’t see any real urgency about us in the first half. We were better in the second half but not by a lot. However, in Mohsni we had a matchwinner.
“That wasn’t the level of performance we were looking for but they found a way to win again. That is a great habit to get into.
“There have been great teams here in the past that haven’t played well but found a way to win. That’s really important.”
Ayr boss Mark Roberts said: “We deserved something. In the first half we were brave in the way we defended and passed it.
“On another day we could have scored three in the first half but to lose two goals from set-pieces was disappointing.”
Roberts was involved in a touchline flare-up with Gers goal hero Mohsni but the Ayr boss played down the incident, saying: “I couldn’t understand a word he was saying.
“He kept throwing the ball to me – I thought we were playing basketball. I just gave him the ball back but he couldn’t catch it. But he had the last laugh.”

Yet again last night was dire,but more worryingly it is becoming acceptable. If I did not have season ticket I would not have been anywhere near Ibrox last night(how many fans will be honest and agree).So let’s assume ally stays and signs another six daly,black,cribari type players then what changes? We all gladly signed up for the journey from bottom to top but would it have been too much to ask for to throw in some entertainment? And yes bluepeter9 this is another ally oot post,but if we all bury our heads in the sand like you then I am afraid we are all doomed.  PS please blue order/union bears no super ally/he’s blue he’s white pish on Saturday it’s painful enough sitting through that dross.
