Another ridiculously early blog this morning just before I leave for work. I turned on the radio and heard the news that Felipe Scolari has been offered the England managers job.

Scolari is currently managing Portugal but the plan is to drag him away from sunny Lisbon to rainy London after the World Cup. So does Scolari pass the Sparkster test (and it a tough one to pass)?

Yes, Scolari is one of only three managers who I genuinely believe could do a good job for England along with Martin O’Neill and Arsen Wenger.

Scolari has proven he can get results with talented teams. He took Portugal to the final in Euro 2004 and won the World Cup with Brazil in 2002. O’Neill and Wenger do not have any history of winning trophies on an international field or even in Europe (yet).

It’s a shame we can’t get an English manager but we need to think of who is best for the job and I believe that is Scolari.

Hopefully Scolari will also be more professional than Sven and not sleep with every female member of The FA and spout secrets to “fake Sheikhs”, howeve judging by this photo I found on the internet he is every bit as seedy. :o)


“Mr. Scolari, meet your new 21 year old secretary Rebecca”

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
