Do you know anything about our track record with previous managers?

No.

Good when can you start?


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

According to our non chairman it's hard to interview for football managers because they all give the same responses.

Talking to someone about interview techniques and this is how is last interview went
Manager :how are you going to get here each morning
Young lad : on my pushbike
Manager: what you going to do when it’s pissing it down in the morning
Young lad :put a coat on and get on my bike
Needless to say he got the job with that answer

Q: this is a square peg. Which hole does it go in?



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

Here's some dog excrement (alledgely the budget) how much glitter do you have to make it look better (finding great players on the cheap)


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Do you have a large suitcase?

Why?

You will need to be living out of it for a while.  On past experience, you are unlikely to be here long enough to make it worthwhile to buy or rent a house locally.

Good to see then that the club are confident in their long-term planning and decision-making.

Well, thank you.  (Completely missing the point and the irony).

I won’t need any accommodation as I don’t want to live locally anyway.  I will commute.

Where from?

Wales.

Not acceptable.  We need all players and the manager to live locally/within easy commuting distance.

No way.  Get me out of here!  I will get my coat and see what Carlisle and Leyton Orient have to offer.  At least they both have a better track-record for appointing managers.

Next applicant please.......................

Do you plan on playing attack minded football?

WIll you continue to use the youth who are already involved in and around the squad?

Will you please leave someone up top when we are defending corners and freekicks so we have an actual outlet when we are successful?

Its taken 9 months for the board to see sense but finally Slade is out!!!!!!

Can u give the long suffering fans that same feeling they had at Wembley just a few years ago?
And can u give them the belief that despite a few set backs along the way that they know we are moving in the right direction so they will stay with you?

Would you rather fight a tiger in a swimming pool or a shark on dry land?

Can you accept criticism from radio phone-in presenters?

All interviewees arrive with a PowerPoint presentation. The panel then leave the room and listen in on a conference call to simulate listening on Radio Humberside.

These presentations are then scored based on their video content.
