the fact they have Les Ferdinand as director of football obviously means that they wouldn't appoint a black manager on racial grounds wouldn't it mike

I found it odd they gave Ferdinand the Director of Football job.

'Arry seemed to think he'd be his automatic replacement albeit temporary.

Ramsey used his first press conference to talk about Sherwood being perfect for the job, and that he would be happy to work under him again after he gave him a chance to coach at Tottenham......

Not really words that suggest Ramsey wants the job full time. In fact, he doesnt even have the job by the sounds, Ferdinand himself was present at training and was said to have helped pick the team, and Kevin Bond was also involved.... it seems a bit of a three way effort.

Maybe Ramsey is too clever to jump at the chance of managing a relegation bound team with cripplilng financial fair play difficulties that would hit if they go down. Its a career killer that, Sherwood himself would do better than to walk away from that opportunity.

I'm entitled to be sceptical...how many black managers are there in the Premiership?
:halo:
Thankfully, QPR shine like a candle in the darkness (pun intended, sort of)....


"Queens Park Rangers have confirmed the appointment of Chris Ramsey as head coach until the end of the season. Ramsey is said to have earned the right to take charge of the Barclays Premier League strugglers on a temporary basis after impressing the west London club's owner Tony Fernandes."

As are other people, and so far all I see is a non-white chairman, who owns the club with another non-white person, who has a director that is non-white, who oversees a director of football that is non-white, picked a black man over a white man despite the latter having management experience in the English football league, and the other not.........

Someone needs to look into racism against White managers, because this is clearly racist!!!

Chris Ramsay got the job after "impressing Tony Fernandes" :lmao :lmao :lmao :lmao

After Sherwood and Laudrup ruled themselves out, and no-one else wanted a relegation on their CV.

Chris Ramsay wasn't the best qualified, he is the one person with nothing to lose that is willing to do the job.

To be fair to Ramsey, I dont think Fernandes' words of support would fill anyone with confidence. He basically said not long before he was appointed that the perfect candidate had been found, then backtracked and hired another bloke on the basis that the perfect guy wasnt available till the end of the season ie until the perfect guy knew he was joining a Premiership team.

Get them relegated, and he hasnt been given a window sign a few players and put his own mark on a team, but takes his future opportunities in management away...... keep them up, and it sounds like a replacement is already lined up for next year

A piece of black football history....

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tony_Collins_(footballer)

"Anthony Norman Collins (born 19 March 1926) is an English football player, manager and scout, who played as a left winger. He managed Rochdale between 1960 and 1967, becoming the first black manager in The Football League and leading them to the 1962 Football League Cup Final, their only major final appearance. Collins played professionally for Sheffield Wednesday, York City, Watford (in two spells), Norwich City, Torquay United and Crystal Palace (where he was the club's first black player), before ending his playing career at Rochdale. Apart from a spell as assistant manager (and briefly caretaker manager) at Bristol City, he latterly worked mainly in scouting for a number of clubs, including Leeds United and Manchester United, as well as for the England national team."

Sadly, British football has not advanced much since the days of Tony Collins at Rochdale...there are only three black managers in 90-odd clubs in the English league system.
