Dwight Yorke: "Racism the reason I cant get a manager's job"
http://www.teamtalk.com/news/yorke-racism-a-reason-i-cant-get-a-managers-job

Does he have a point? Done his coaching badges, served his apprenticeship as an Assistant Manager for the Trinidad and Tobago national team and Sunderland, so must admit I'm surprised he hasn't been given a shot at a lower league club, a la Hasselbaink at Burton.

Is is because he's aiming too high? Or because he's black? Or more likely because of the reputation he's got for being a bit of a mindless idiot who no chairman in their right mind would let loose on their football club.

It's like Yogi Berra and his Berraisms, some are true but a lot are apocryphal

Mashed,
Mcateer has confirmed the pizza story, it is an old gag though

Could be one of many to be fair.

mashed

isn't that line: I spent all my money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest i squandered.

originally spoken my George Raft who starred in Some Like It Hot: Part went for liquor, part for women, the rest spent foolishly.

Must have heard the pizza story told about 10 different players in my life, usually David Beckham.

Read in one of George Best's books it was McAteer.

Also in the same book, the "if I had all the money I spent on drink..." was attributed to someone else and Best was only quoting them/paraphrasing it.

Two more:

McAteer once spotted Jimmy White whilst at a club one night and shouted "180!" at him.

He supposedly filled out a credit card application and in the 'Position held' part he wrote "I'm a central midfielder but the gaffer is playing me at right wing back".

One of his team mates one asked him to pass the Tomato sauce, to which he replied 2Red or brown?".

He went to Pensylvania whilst on duty with Ireland and asked where Dracula's castle was.

These are the type of things that led him to be given the nickname Double Trigger at Liverpool, because he was twice as stupid as Rob Jones who was already nicknamed trigger.

McAteer in an interview one confirm that most of these stories are in fact true.

I love the old McAteer stories

He was asked if he wanted his pizza cut into four or eight bits and he said four as he couldn't manage eight.

Or when one of his teammates (Ruddock I think) locked himself out of his car, asked McAteer to get a coathangar and he came back with a wooden one.

Haha. Says it all. Can you imagine having McAteer as your boss? Bloke can't even spell his name.

The same John Barnes who decided to go with a 4-2-2-2 formation that nobody else played and blatantly didn't work.

The same John Barnes who thought it would be a good idea to appoint Jason McAteer at Tranmere as his number 2.

Yeah. The same John Barnes that actually made Celtic look shit in the SPL and then said they bombed him out as he was black. Fucking bell-end.

If I were a black manager if be tearing out my dreads every time the likes of Yorke and Barnes came out with rubbish like this.

Re: Dwight Yorke: "Racism the reason I cant get a manager's job"
And I just read in the paper someone complained about an MOD twitter page as the soldiers face is completely camouflaged and looks blacked up.

Brilliantly the blokes surname is spook.

Fuck off you white cunt and get a life!!

Sort of bloke who needs shooting.

Michael Vick was also a brother in the NFL and kaepernick is mixed race.

In the past I just don't think many kids grew up wanting to play the position and always wanted to instead be in positions to hit people or be running backs (position where whites are extremely rare), but now its revolutionising itself so qb's use their legs a lot more, guess it's appealing to more people.

Big difference anyway, as the yanks have always had race problems, where as Dwight has been plying a trade in this country where it hasn't been a major issue for years, so he's just talking shit. Sports owners only see pound or dollar signs, so will employ whoever they feel will get them wedge in regardless of colour.

'Yeah the QB is captain'

They have four captains on each club if I recall correctly. Offence (usually, but not always, the QB), defence, and two for special teams.
