Me.

I have decided that if and when the position becomes vacant, I will apply.

I have a fail proof plan.

As I know nothing much about tactics, I don't need to pay much attention to the game. I will simply walk around a bit flapping my wings and gesturing, whilst consulting dotnet for plan A, B and C if required.
Team will be picked for me in advance and I'll just shout whatever the experts on dotnet advise me to do.

Fricken simple. Don't know how nobody has thought on it before.

Recently, I read a biography of Graeme Souness. He tells of approaching Bob Paisley early in his Liverpool career to ask him how he wanted him to play, what tactics etc. Apparently, Paisley told him he and the team were just to get out there and play - they didn`t need any instructions from him!

I could jump up and down on my perch too. Im sure that will be worth a few extra points per season.

You would do well to follow the advice on .net, PARrot. The vast majority of critics on here have never lost a game, recruited or selected the wrong players, chosen the wrong formation, made the wrong substitutions etc.

Of course it is but the norms of civility and decency shouldn`t be ignored just because we`re discussing football. It`s sometimes seems as if people are criticising characters in a soap opera rather than real people.

I want a manager who sucks seeds. If Parrot dispenses with his gnashers, he'll get my vote.



Not your average Sunday League player.

PARrot I’d be less concerned about who the next manager will be if I was you, and more concerned that you’re probably a grown man pretending to be a parrot which is quite alarming

Either that or I'm a grown parrot pretending to be a man. I haven't figured which yet.

BTW, you don't stop laughing when you grow old. You grow old when you stop laughing. Never lose contact with your inner child old chap.

It can be difficult sometimes working out if someone on here is joking or serious.
I just dont get where the last two posts come from.

The running theme was comments with bird references. I used a well known catchphrase from Achmed The Dead Terrorist (a ventroloquists dummy) and swapped a bird part for one of the words and someone gets all serious and challengy.....whats that all about?

A hardman behind a pen name!!!!!!
Business name and logo prominently featured on dotnet for years. Aye incognito right enough.

Still scratching my head about the hardman bit.
Insane, or did I miss something?

Tenuous, eh?
What where why when how?????
Think I must have missed something.

If you think you've missed something, probably best to wait a while and get it confirmed.

You know, rather than go on a mad rant that could make you look a bit crazy.
