A French second tier side have appointed a 36 year old woman as their new head coach! In these days of so-called sexual equality, why is this news?

I know but it's only men that are knocking her, that is NOT a euphemism!

Its strange that we now have many, many woman at football matches, a fair proportion at Sunderland and we know from the ones we know that the ladies are very knowledgeable about the game, more than most of us men.

Woman's football is becoming ever more popular but managers, coaches and officials still are a very small minority.

I guess it takes time.

Seriously, if you read the article, she has an excellent cv in several countries, she must know what she's doing!

She does have an excellent CV and I wish her luck. She will need it! I loved this bit in the article though:

Veronique Soulier, president of Clermont Foot's supporters' club, said: "It surprised us when we read the club statement. But once we got over it, we all believe that it is a good thing.
"The boys in the team can be difficult to manage. They can be quite sensitive, that is what the other coaches have told us. With a woman in charge, maybe they will be less demanding."


LOL! The boys are quite sensitive and difficult to manage. Poor babies! tongue

One for sure, wimmen will never be equal to men unless they are bald, got a beer belly and still think they are sexy. Razz 

Didn't realise we had a lady linesperson last Saturday until after the game hand shakes.

Sian Massey is one of the best 'assistant referees' in the game. She never gets a decision wrong. as far as I have ever seen anyway! I noticed how tiny she is compared with Howard Webb. I actually think that players will be more respectful to a small woman like that than thay are to a big hefty man. No threat to their testosterone levels!

I'm sure it was Sian on the line when Andy Grey ad whats is name made their sexist remarks that saw them sacked

You are correct and Richard Keys was the other guy.

I thought Gray ( detestable) and Keys got a rough deal there. Heard their comments about explaining the offside rule, but it had not long been introduced and even seasoned refs were getting it technically wrong. In a way I heard it as a back handed compliment that a woman could understand it better than a man.

But of course I could be wrong.

With the greatest respect, I believe you are.  Smile 

The offside rule has been in the rules as long as modern football has been around, and it is a common sexist 'joke' that women can't understand it. Their comments were along the lines of 'Someone better get down there and explain it to her", implying she did not know it at all, along with personal comments about her looks. They were also caught making other sexual and derogatory comments to female presenters and technicians. Sky is well rid of the slimy pair. Although I note Andy Gray was a pundit on a BT Sport game last week.

You see when good men like yourself, and most men in fact, accept this sort of thing as 'banter' or 'back handed' compliments (think about that one for a minute, in respect of how many women are treated by men) , the problem will never be eradicated. Actual sexual equality will only come when the fact that you are female or male never even crosses anyone's mind, when discussing their ability to do any job.

I'm not that sure they were sacked for their remarks it seemed to me that Sky were just waiting for an excuse.

Like many of these stories once its out there more and more stories come out for me Sky is a better place without them.
