Only 2 black league managers in England

Postby Omari » Sun Jul 31, 2011 11:36 am

I am a 6th form student and I am currently doing a project called Why are there so few black managers in English league football? As currently 25% of league players are black or minority ethnic (BME) but only 2 out of the 92 league managers are BME. (Chris Powell and Chris Hughton). I am interested in what fellow football fans think about this issue. Why do you think there are so few black managers? Whether you think there is actually an issue? Whether you think there should be a solution and any opinions expressed in this thread may be used anonymously in my project. Thank You :D

Personally i don;t really have a clue. If you look at the FACT of how long it took Hughton to get hired after newcastle fired him ,even when almost every person in football publicly said it was one of the most shocking firings in football, it makes you wonder.
The thing is there is a problem ,but i'm not sure how bad it is really . Are former players having invisible barriers put up in the quest to acquire the certifications? How many black people are actually applying? It looks bad in todays game ,because the league has so many black players ,but that has only accelerated over the last 4 or 5 years. So there could be a bit of misleading psychological factor taken into people negative thinking of the situation. One thing you don;t do is hire black managers because there are a lot of black players ,you hire them if they are fit for the job. I think Hughton was fit for a lot of jobs that were being offered when he was unemployed and one can only guess the reasoning for them team to bypass that man. I thought Ince was in the same position even though his short stint at Blackburn wasn't great.
Is there a race problem ? i would say maybe ,but more importantly there is a respect problem and if players don't respect you then any slip ups you have will be magnified in their eyes.

Pretty tough job my friend. For me black coaches are working mostly in there countries (in Africa ) and probably they are not so qualify for Еngland . I guess if some one wants to be seen from the black managers , he should have a lot of awards and after that to have some claims. I think that African football is not so good as European and they have to work a lot more to be manager in Europe . Or maybe we think so , but they are good.

perhaps you are right,but another reason is that its circustums are fit for who has tradition in the football field and the black has little ways of jioning ,or the boss of the club don't know how they can really lead the team ,so ... but i think it will change step by step,more black managers will there in the field ! :) (!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))

I think it's blatent racism.

But who is to blame? The club owners!!! And they are dotted around the world, and are hardly aware of the existance of the FA, or, even the Premier League. Phone the club owners and tell them off!

Oh, by the way Steely Hill, you shouldn't have to go back 20 years. 10 years is enough, and there were LOADS LOADS AND LOADS of black players then. And even 20 years ago, there were a large number of black players. A large number!!!!!
