I actually think hes a decent manager who has worked with very tight budgets. I think he probably will get an opportunity higher up
I'm not sure many Southend fans would agree with that 1st sentence

I know he had his work cut out there - but he really didn't show anything that would cause anyone to think he could be a good manager

I'm sure someone will take a chance on him - & he may well come good sometime in the future- but right now I can't see how any appointment could be based on current merit - personally

Campbell's managed 2 clubs in terrible situations. He did well to keep Macclesfield up. We'll see how he goes from now on.

They had three black former players on Soccer Saturday at the weekend. Sky are really pushing the boat out with this and want to be seen as caring the most about BLM.
Le Tiss wasn’t overly chuffed on twitter about being forced to wear the BLM badge because he didn’t agree with them Sky are absolutely ramming down everyone’s throats.

Reports from Barca that there are problems between the players and new manager.
Could be why he resigned today .
Pity the bookies are shut.

Decent managers do something with teams on tight budgets, get a good reputation for doing so, and get better jobs on merit

Think it was a few months ago he left wasn't it?

He likes the sound of his own voice though does Campbell so I'm sure he'll be busy letting us know his take on why it didn't work out for him there.

Maybe he can try and get into politics again. :oops:

Shite manager that has a massive chip on his shoulder. I would imagine it gives up and coming black managers an even tougher chance of getting a role from chairmen thinking they will be the next Sol Campbell and everything turning out to be race related.
Careful, him being a failure is nothing to do with him being black so other black prospective managers should not be judged on Sol. He fails because he is a shite manager with a full chippy on his shoulder. Black people, as with any other races, religion or creed, should be judged only on ability, personality and experience.

Although certain negative influences will use the black aspect and the undoubted history of racial discrimination for self promotion, we must be careful not to "lump them together", which kind of validates things. There's bad eggs and ignorance on all sides. Black managers and people absolutely 100000% deserve chances white people get, based on merit. And in my opinion, there is a history of discrimination. Of course some are playing on it too much, but we're above comparison for skin colour terms.

Let him play vicTIM as a bad egg, rather than because he is black and keep our morals high.

At least that's how I see it

The threads on this guy are always the same now, can someone just make a bingo card. Just line after line of people repeating sarcastic comments about racism.

If 45 people before you have already said the same thing on the thread, then there is a slight chance your comment is not original.
