Black players are now much in evidence on the pitch at the very highest levels and in many cases dominate.. Inevitably, given time they will filter through into management and it is already starting to happen. . I am afraid that this is simply another non story from a BBC hopelessly obsessed with race and ethnicity..
I'm going to bed, this is a waste of time. Politically correct BBC sponsored rubbish. I swear this website gains UKIP more votes than they obviously try to deny them!
1077 whoami Totally agree. Positive discrimination is a ridiculous phrase. Total opposites. discrimination is not positive and should never be described as such. It allows those who preach against discrimination to discriminate. Full stop!
Chelsea fans must admit they were a bit boring today. Don't be like AFC for gawds sake.
From his comments you'd think that John Barnes thinks a top four club should come knocking just because of his skin colour. Has he spoke of applying to a much lower standard and working his way up, or trying his hand on the continent? There are a potential of many ex players of all colours applying for one job per club, should always be the best person.
Don't agree with Barnes. Football as we all know is about money. Winning matches equals money. White, black, purple with pink spots, doesn't matter. If you don't make money for the club, you're sacked. Football is quite refreshing in this way, as colour doesn't come into it. Unless you're trying to get the tube with a bunch of Chelsea supporters of course!
It makes me feel sick when I hear this type of remark time and time again. Why emphasis the word "Black" Is Black more superior than any other colour? If you are good enough for the job, it doesn't matter what colour. I am of a Chinese origin and we don't moan about not having enough this and that. Just work harder and eventually, you will get recognise.
Barnes was a great player but crap manager, surely that explains his career to date?

Is Mr Barnes suggesting they have been "blackballed"
