Pity for the foot­ball fall guy

The Chronicle - - Feedback -

HAV­ING zero in­ter­est in foot­ball, I am al­ways at a loss to un­der­stand why, when a team is los­ing ev­ery match, it’s the man­ager that gets the boot.

Surely all the owner needs to do is get all the play­ers to­gether and, us­ing small words as they are only foot­ballers and not rocket sci­en­tists, ex­plain the facts to them as fol­lows: “You don’t win, you don’t get money.”

That should work. They could fol­low it up with “You get red card, you pay club one week’s money.” Sorted!

Yours faith­fully SM WAL­TON, Gateshead
