yes yes.

well, the movie glosses over a metric ton of details and spends a lot of time showing goals and graphics of the championship table, but from what i could gather, things were shit when:

1) a lunatic egomaniac was in charge and tried to micromanage everything and took everything personally

however, things improved when

1) a saner person took the reins of the organization

2) a professional was allowed to do his job without interference

the atrocity of flavio suggesting to players that they-- foul more, or something? self-appointed coach from hell.

anyway, don't know what the myth of the prem manager is, but if something is clear to me from this movie is that "management" (i mean that in a general sense) matters a whole lot to the success of an organization. little details, like when amit tells gianni he wants to be more positive and stop yelling at the players-- truly, treat people like cattle and they will respond in kind (coaches and players alike).

it cracked me up when warnock walks into the building, points at the stupid "winners only" sign, and says "that's gotta go". also the fact that after all of the week's hard work he told the players to have fun on the pitch. isn't that a much better way to build up morale? of course.

It's a shame that the massive amount of money and media interest in the Prem
has encouraged so many egomaniacal rich kids to buy clubs, effectively as vanity projects. Amit was certainly an improvement on Flavio (hardly difficult) but he's still not someone I think had a clue how to run a football club. Getting Warnock in and giving him a bit of freedom was clearly a sound move but one most would consider a no brainer, given his proven record in the lower leagues. And now, with their new owner, QPR seem to have returned to the misguided hubris started by Flavio. In that company, you're right, Amit comes across as a beacon of good sense, but I'd hate to see the little shiny coated fucker anywhere near West Ham. Not that we haven't got our own little shiny coated fucker to worry about, already.

None in the Prem league, as far as I know. Swansea probably come closest, and they're doing fine. There's never really been a tradition of it here but it looks increasingly attractive, especially the more cooperative fan/private model they've got at Barca and Bayern. But the FA will look at the Prem, still the most watched football league in the world and think why fix what isn't broken. It'll take one of the giant clubs to go under before anything changes, and even them I'm doubtful.

He's David Sullivan - same bloke as the one in my avatar. He's basically a bit mad and definitely 'hands on' but nothing like as malignant as Flavio or Abramovich. More a loveable eccentric, really, who made his fortune with porn mags and likes dressing up like a member of the Chinese SS.

Yeah, Nigeria deserved it but I'm disappointed for Burkina Faso. They didn't really turn up. Not a great end to an otherwise great tournament.

West Ham never really interested me (sorry), but their owner, now, suddenly, does.

Porn mags?
I knew Blackburn were funded by the poultry business, but that, I had no idea of...
Blackburn was last year's QPR, except that it took them a bit longer to sink...
