PS I also have an A grade GSCE in Latin. And I'd be rubbish at managing OUFC!

Ditto. Only because A*s hadn't been invented (he said modestly).

Pah - I've got A Level Latin and a degree in Classics - should I be managing Barcelona?

No, most definitely NOT.


Olympiacos or Roma would be suitable though....

:oops: I don't have an 'O' level in Latin but I would still carpe diem if the chance came along. :lol:

So the other three on the shortlist are as follows?

Dougie Freedman?
Alun Stubbs?
Internal candidate - Chris Allen?

Or has anyone got other ideas.

I suspect Faz rather than Chrissy Allen. My best guess would be:

Lampard
Floyd Hasselbaink
Pep Clotet
Faz
McLaren
Tisdale (hoping)

I've got an O-level in Maths, a GCSE in Additional Maths, an A-level in Maths, an A-level in Further Maths and a degree in Maths.

Those don't even qualify me to be a mathematician, so I doubt they'd help me run a football team. Except maybe...

...(wait for it)...

Real

Arsene Wenger has a degree in Economics. I have a BA, MSc and PhD in Economics, so maybe I could manage Barca?

Someone has already updated Wikipedia...

"Josep 'Pep' Clotet Ruiz (born 28 April 1977) is a Spanish football coach, currently First Team Coach of English club Oxford United. In his first media interview he simply said "7 in a row"."

Odds on Pep Clotet shortened and then all betting suspended?

Come out of the closet and support Pep Clotet.
