How football management has changed

Just read this on social media.....made me smile

Back in the day: no running up and down the touchline disrespecting the opposing manager, no technical area in which to stand and shout at the fourth official because you've conceded a throw in which possibly you didn't think you should have conceded, no fourth official to moan at anyway, no bench full of free kick 'expert' coaches, goalkeeping coaches, defensive coaches, attacking coaches, seven substitutes!, no twat from Sky TV telling you when to kick off because the advert for the following game which kicks off in two hours has overrun. Rose tinted glasses from an old man brought up on proper football when players thought it was a sign of weakness when they had to have the trainer, one trainer not two as nowadays, on the pitch and not rolling around squealing like a pig, clutching their ankle when, in the majority of cases, they've not been touched! God bless Mr Revie and Mr Cocker. Always LEEDS Always LOYAL!

It has changed, but then again so has every sport in a similar fashion. Sport is simply a huge business nowadays and no longer merely a sport. It exists more to make lots of people lots of money rather than to entertain - though of course the entertainment side is still necessary to make the big bucks.
We're going up like there is no gravity!
