Have any of you's ever thought about being a manager for real, i have been thinking about it for a while now and i wana get into it, i know you have to do your coaching courses and they cost around £40, but is there anything else you would need like grades wise psycology or anything

in the words of Kevin Keegan, Id luv it

But basically you need to have played football at least semi pro level to actually get anywhere in maangement.

I have a badge, im allowed to coach 4-7 year olds I think. I was one of the youngest in Scotland to get it :D

Your probably qualified enough for National Scotland Manager then?

It doesn't interest me, though sometimes i believe i could do twice the job most premiership managers do.

Do you really have to have made it semi pro? maybe you could start at a pub team do really well, and apply for a coaches job in the south con etc, thn if you do have to play ask them for a play/coach contract but you dont wana play maybe once as a sub, then go from there

I remember afew years back the FA brought out that to manage an EPL club you needed a degree in marketing or equivilent (top end uefa badge??). There was something about a team having a caretaker manager at the time and they wanted him full time the next season but he didn't have any of the above mentioned qualifications?

Is this rule still in effect if I'm remembering right?

Woah, i'm well jealous. Being the young, fit athletes that we were, we had to demonstrate everything but we got to play football for like 20 minutes :D :cool:

Itd be a class job to do, but i dont see why u need to be semi pro, it would just be an additional thing that would help...am shure there someplace u can chek it out..
