    Just wondering what people think about the announcement that Phil Neville is to be the new Head Coach of the England Women's Football Team?

    Despite his lack of managerial experience and no experience of coaching women, some see it as a great way to give the England Women team a bigger profile. Others are making the point that if you invest in a talent development pathway for female coaches then the Head Coach position should go to the best female candidate…or is it a case of best person for the job?

    Be interested to hear your thoughts.

    Interesting read by Jonathan Liew in the Independent on the appointment here

    He concludes.... "In a way, the controversy over Neville’s tweets is a convenient smokescreen for the real issue: that he is simply not qualified for the job. In another, however, it tells us everything we need to know. It confirms some of our deepest-set fears about football’s male-dominated culture. A culture that tells even the best woman that she is still seen as inferior to a man who has never coached in women’s football, never shown the slightest interest in the women’s game, has made derogatory comments about women in the past, and has been handed on a plate a job he didn’t even apply for."

    Question : what do you consider the difference between a coach and a manager? It appears that, at the top level, the two "jobs" are often done by one person yet , to me, they are two distinctly different roles. In my sport (bowls) we don't have any coaches at the top levels - only team managers. Consequently we have no coaching to speak of above club level, and then it is only really accepted by beginners. I would love to change this, but have no idea where to start as the "managers" see no need for coaching ... Beyond getting elite players to endorse the concept of coaching at their level (which they currently emphatically do not), I am stumped. Any ideas?

     when you are born you know nothing and have to be teached, Are managers just there or has someone teached them to be a manager? It could though workshop or observation.
