What a load of rubbish!

    More political correctness gone wrong. Crooks doesn't seem to realise that mabye there is a lack of black managers, because those who enter coaching aren't the best options for the jobs available.

    Why aren't there more female coaches? Why aren't there more coaches of Asian origin? Hell, why aren't there more Polish immigrant coaches?

    You could raise ridiculous questions about any group not currently well represented among British football management.

    In just the same way that a black manager shouldn't be turned away from a job because of his skin colour, it doesn't mean he should be accomodated just to fill up the quotas of political correctness nuts.

    Racial politics has ripped apart South African rugby. I sincerely hope the same thing doesn't happen to Britain's most popular sport.

    I call it reverse racism...it's rampant here in the US.
    Coaching and Jobs should have nothing to do with skin color...whoever is the most qualified should get it. Affirmative Action, in my opinion, messes with the whole concept of equality. It would be interesting to see statistics on the number of black coaches period...not just at the higher level. I'm fairly confident to say that those numbers would match. If you want to start an initiative, do it at the ground level, and let coaches (black, white, yellow, polkadotted) get the experience. They always attack the high profile positions, when they should aim at the youth football, and academy levels.
