THE KITCHEN — There’s an article on CNN at the moment about football managers, and how tough their jobs are.
Football is a wonderful game, involving millions of people and billions of dollars, but surely the lives of the managers and their families must be given a greater consideration?
They are trying to stir it up and drive conversation on the website. (I know how they feel.) And so far — in 5 days — no one has commented. (Ditto.)
I think it is because football managers have moved well down the list of managers that the public are worried about.
I used to say that pregnancy was the only condition that you went into the hospital for, relatively sure that you would be out again soon, and with a happy result. And that’s perhaps a good analogy for the current recession. We are definately heading into one. In fact, we are already in one. But we know it is going to end. And we’ll be back to normal on the other side. It’s a sandstorm in which you have to build a tent.
It’s times like these, for managers, employees and football managers, that you realise that putting things into perspective is important. Life is bigger than this.
