30 pieces of wisdom from football managers

Searching for the answers for life’s big questions? Well, we find that alongside DJs (for there isn’t a problem they can’t fix) and The A-Team (if we can find them of course), football managers are generally good for a nugget of wisdom or three.

That and the fact that we don’t understand half of what these so-called philosophers and other supposed bright sparks are saying half the time.

But then who needs academic intelligence when you’ve got Brian Clough’s bon mots? And as he sagely noted: I don’t remember Freud winning a European Cup final.

Read, take inspiration, be better, do good. In that order.
