    Crikey, I read the whole thread, but I think over 50% of the posters took this seriously? That's surely some kind of record?

    Surely a more appropriate title for Ole would be the Personager?

    Seeing our attack, it probably more like "boys game".

    Are they officiating or playing? Where does he say women shouldn't be officiating the game? The internet truly was the best thing to happen to attention seekers. This is less than a non story.

    A "mans" game is referring to the fact its a grown up game. Not the gender. If you said UFC that "fighting is a young mans game", you'd be correct. Even though a woman has drawn some of their best ever buyrates, that is not what the intention of the saying is. Men's football is a mans game.

    You should copyright that phrase as no doubt it will appear in The Sun or some other rag when Ole finally gets the boot. For the record, he was referring to the snipe ring of Origi. Odd that Klopp never mention Dan James getting flattened twice and nothing given. Also, Basketball is a rough sport, he may have meant Netball.

    Almost in relegation zone, the squad doesn't have enough players for this season, placing our hopes in signing Sancho and Kane even if We're only attractive to the Freds and the Rojos of the world, A bald clueless posh prick ruling the club and now what? a manager who doesn't respect woman + Saudi take over.

    Need me pills. This club is doing me head in.

    It would have been a lot wiser, if he had simply said that it is a "contact sport". It has absolutely nothing to do with men or women. Undoubtedly an inappropriate argument. (probably unintentionally but that does not make it any better)

    Maybe we should introduce quota of 50% players being female for the first team? Would that make you happy? Or do we need to have a trans player quota too?

    No, I just don’t want our manager making sexist comments. Shouldn’t be too difficult.

    Oh the precious generation. He is talking about the mans version of the sport, in respect to it being physical and younger lads needing to prepare for that.

    It’s a saying that’s been used for decades and there’s absolutely nothing offensive or derogatory about it.

    In women’s football they don’t have an equivalent term but if they did I’m sure it would be used.

    I saw this interview. He was saying Greenwood has been playing at the U18s level and he isnt playing at the kids level anymore.

    For gods sake it’s a turn of phrase that means bugger all. It isn’t sexist.

    Ole has told reporters not to make a fuss about his rampant 1970s sexism:

    Don't try and reason with these people. They are beyond all reason. They just want their sense of self worth from proving how disingenuous they are.

    I’m not sure these kind of weird views exist outside of the internet.
