Doesn't surprise me. Scouting isn't a gender bias occupation.
Jose in a skirt.
Does he have the legs for that?
We need more woman managers/coaches.
Good luck with that. Maybe for the women's game. This doesn't fly in pro football, simply a matter of respect, seeing how it's becoming increasingly difficult even for those who have not been top players to make teams gel.
Luck isn't needed, just competence. Clermont Foot is managed by a woman and she is as competent and respected as any other coach.
Do you know much about them? Just had a quick look at their recent seasons. They seem quite stubbornly mid table.
About time. No reason why a woman can't do as well as a man.
Well, it's a middle table team. She promotes a good brand of football though, technical and attacking.
That's not true, is it? There are more top coaches now without prior footballing carreers at a certain level. Mourinho for one.
i was shocked to find they have a female cricket commentator
not shocked because i think it's wrong or anything but because i'm just so not used to it.
Imagine an FA cup final or champions league final with a female commentator.
She commented games here and she was better than most at it. The last time I heard about her she was the first woman coaching a professional men's team in the french second division. No idea how that went though
Apparently she quit before starting anything because the director signed players without her having a say.
Bit off topic but I've been there, beautiful place. People seem to be more interested in rugby there though, bit like Wigan I think.
Yeah you'd think it wouldn't matter if you've played football before but it does seem to be one of those professions where some clubs/players refuse to respect your opinion unless you have.
I mean we can all agree that thus far in their respective careers Mourinho has achieved more than Zidane but compare and contrast there fortunes at Madrid and those rumours of player discontent accompanied by murmurings of what does he know he's never had to play at a top club like this. Whereas with Zidane no such thing.
It's just one of them things and although it's a step in the right direction I feel we're still a ways off before both genders can perform without prior judgement.
I always thought that people should be hired on merit.
We need better coaches. What's in their pants means the square root of feck all.
Wigan isn't the place I'd anticipate having our first female manager.
One of the biggest issues with having a female coach is their background. A female coach could win the Womens Champions League 9 years in a row, Win the World Cup 10-0 every game and it would count for absolutely nothing as Womens football is significantly different to mens football. It's barely the same sport. Tactically, physically, preparation, lifestyles etc are all just a total different world. I can go into much more detail if needed. The only way a women has a chance is if she is involved in the mens game for a long time before being given a chance.
Majority of women teams at a decent level have about 2 competitive games a season (in before Madrid and Barca etc). The rest of the games they could have no manager and win 6-0 easily. It's not a good grounding for the mens game, where your first club would more than likely be in a competitive lower league.
This thread is useless without pics!
I'm more surprised that this is actually their first female scout. I would have thought they would have had female scouts well before now. I'm assuming we have female scouts in England already?
The Girl Guides I believe.
Why hire a woman to do a man's job?
Apparently she isn't "Bundesliga's first female scout" (?), because on Eintracht's website, it shows a Viviane Schmidt (never heard of her) as part of the scouting team.
