Wow! And Lampard is coaching cheslea.

This is what you were trying to tell G4L.


Abeg don't drag me into this one. :P

Lampard got the job because he's one of the club's biggest legends. Obviously, being white helps a lot but there are other more qualified white names that were bypassed so racism doesn't come into play with respect to the Chelsea decision. He'd have had a point had Drogba been coaching and was bypassed in preference for Lampard.


Bro, there is no need for argument. This is not fight. My comment had NOTHING to do with racism. I am just pointing out to Kalani that this is an example of what he was trying to tell you-- White coaches get top jobs, black coaches don't. for whatever reason. Gerrard is also coaching Glasgow Rangers, from no where.


I understand his point and definitely agree with him (and you) however the Chelsea example was misplaced because it's not ripe.

By the way, the same occurred in the NFL until the implemented the rule requiring at least one black candidate to be interviewed which then opened doors to the point where it is today. But it's been a long and ongoing process in USA. It appears they are trying to replicate what 'worked' in USA in England but if the Moore situation is any indication for future success, this will take a min. Blacks will have to dig in and keep pounding away. Baby steps.

I AGREE


Winning percentage may not be the best or only way to determine how good or how bad a coach is. The environment has a lot to say about that. Unfortunately, all too often, owners, fans, the media, and even players, pay undue attention to it.

We will only effectively deal with racism when more white folks follow AD’s lead. In the UK, a lot of the racism we encounter manifests itself through passive aggression.

Yep. It is so often cryptic, silent and extremely pernicious.

The issue is racial discrimination - different treatment on the basis of race. Both are rookie coaches, one black, one white.
The stats show the black coach performed better and was sacked and ends up at Doncaster. Lampard was no great shakes and still ends up at a higher level. Moore had to earn the right to be considered for the job by getting great results as interim coach. Despite thatn many "pundits" said he shouldn't get the job. Those same "pundits" had no problem with Lampard being appointed at Derby.

I dont understand G4L. I think, in his attempt, to defend his Chelsea, he is completely missing the point.

No one has called Chelsea racist. No one has said Chelsea's hiring of Lampard is racism or racist. The actual point is quite obvious, but he isn't seeing it because he is hell-bent on defending his Chelsea from an accusation that does not exist.


G4L, let me put it this way for you. Ignore Lampard and concentrate on Moore alone. A guy who worked wonders at WBA when they were in the EPL and did quite well the following season. He got fired and then had to look for a sh1ttty job because no other top job considered him. Why do you think this is the case? Do you think he was not considered because he is a bad person? His mouth smells? He didnt win the champioship trophy? WBA did not win every game? His undewear is too big? Which one of these, do you think is the reason he did not get a better job? Just concentrate on Moore alone, when thinking through this. Thanks.
