I remember Steve when he played for Devonport in the very early 80's very good bloke by all accounts.

"They said "Don't worry, we have a dung removal man", but there were still streaks" . Finest line I've read today. Another excellent article, comes across a bit mercenary, which probably isn't the case.

Great article and funny to read. Ive heard him interview before and I agree, he does sound like a chap for a few beers and interesting funny stories. A very passionate guy about football and doesn't have any of the snobbery of the PL. Down to earth, honest guy working hard for a living (and someone who deserves it more than others!!).

Steve has appeared a lot on ESPN as a pundit here in SE Asia- he's funny and excellent value. Just the right guy to have a beer with and hear some great stories! Thanks for a great article among others about coaches abroad.

That's a great article. Great to hear the story of someone at this level who works hard to make a modest living from football and is happy with it.

This series of interviews is by far one of the best things on the internet. It's great to think that there are people who care about football outside of the Premier League and aren't scared to go abroad to coach.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win


s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
