    Why?

    Let the men coach the men and the women coach the women.

    Nobody would respect a female manager anyway.

    Harsh but true.

    no chance, its just not possible that a group of 20-odd men are going to listen and respect the decisions made by a woman in regards to football.

    Unfortunately it's very unlikely and certainly not going to happen within 10 years.

    If she has the fitness to keep up, which im sure they will do for that level, and has the ability to make key decisions and be a good ref then i literally see no point in stopping it? Dont see why gender comes into it.

    It may even cut down on the 'Quick every player on the pitch crowd the ref to get our decision made' crap that goes on

    This is about the refereeing part of the article

    Why not?

    Footballers arent some distant race. Men that age outside of football respect women, thus men inside of football can respect them. If some of them cant they can just deal with it in their own ignorant way.

    Yes but can they be a manager?

    I can see a female Football League manager within the next 10 years. A female Premier League manager is further away.

    I respect Hope Powell's views as she has done a good job managing the ladies' national team.

    I have no respect for the views of Lawrie Sanchez, who should not be wasting his time offering his irrelevant views to the press while the club he manages (Barnet, who I support) have been run into the ground under his management, especially while we are in a relegation battle after one win in about 15 games.

    SANCHEZ OUT.

    This tbh. I CAN imagine a woman with the personality to take that on but it IS difficult to picture! There probably is a surplus of male managers so it's unlikely a woman would be given the job unless she's really really good, and to prove that she would have had to work her way up I guess from the lower leagues. Possible, but probably difficult. You would have to make this your career and I can't see many women taking that risk.

    On the other hand I'm sure there are men coaching women's teams so I'm wondering why it's so "outrageous" to suggest the opposite could happen.

    Not in the next 10 years. In 50 years perhaps... when the more sexist generation has died off...

    At the moment, they barely even do that...

    I read somewhere the other day that of the 8 teams in the Women's Super League, only 2 had women as managers.

    If women aren't even coaching women, you can be pretty damn sure they won't be coaching men any time soon.

    I don't see a problem. I mean don't force it purely because women have a right to do it etc but if a woman has the relevant qualifications, skill, ability and has proven herself then why not!

    If there is a problem with hiring black males then I think a black female has almost zero chance of getting a job as a PL manager.

    Agree the men that won't respect a female women who has all the relevent qualifications/experience etc as male managers just because they're female are an embarrassment to my gender, men coach in womens football so why not the other way around :rolleyes: attitudes need to change as they at least deserve a chance.
