    I believe that there's a big difference between making an impact on the field as a player and making a similar impact in a dug-out coaching/management role. I think the relatives are miles apart but for those that can communicate both then there's likely to be a future in it but no small degree of intelligence and understanding is required.

    There are so few top rate past footballers who are able to translate their wisdom as players into a coaching/management role ... but good luck to those that can.


    Kevin Keegan immediately comes to mind as one positive example, but not many others. Most of them seem to think that their views as so-called 'pundits' are enough to earn them a living and, in fairness, many of them do earn a decent living out of being controversial and appearing knowledgeable about football but in my view most of the former 'big boys' contribute diddly squat to the game that gave them so much.


    Of course I would like to be proved wrong.


    EDIT - just thought of another one ... Steve Coppell.

    Like the great Player Alan Shearer, lost 5 of his 8 games in charge of Newcastle got them relegated and is now a pundit telling them how to do it

    Of course Dalglish did the business and Southgate is doing ok

    putting Dalglish in the same sentence as Southgate is just not on. One is a man who has won everything the other has won nothing

    Very true John but the comparison was on ex players who had made good as managers, hence Southgate is doing ok for himself

    Glad to see Stirling get a brace after the stick he got during the world cup.

    He isn't a favourite of mine for the way he left Liverpool for a huge massive pay rise but it wasn't about the money was it. The behaviour of "some" England fans makes following Engerlund difficult at times but credit is due for that performance last night. How good was Harry Kane he could have scored a hattrick in another game and eh would not have influenced the game as he did last night 10/10.
