Absolutely Andrew. Beckham missed very few friendlies. Giggs missed a huge number and also retired from international football a number of years before he retired from the game.
He has zero charisma with that flat monotonous voice.

I hope he proves me wrong.

He'll do a good job, the players will respect and look up to him, he'll prove you all wrong.

Giggs could have overruled Ferguson, don't remember Beckham missing many friendlies for England in the same period.


No one at Man Utd overruled Fergie, anyone who tried was shown the door.
I can understand people not wanting Giggs for his lack of experience, he has never managed a club side let alone an international one, he would be learning on the job, but to pull him up for missing friendly games, is nitpicking in my book. Friendlies in football seem to be even less important than they are in rugby, at least it seems to mean something when Wales take on the big boys in rugby, when do we ever see a big friendly game that gets peoples interest in football?

By all means have a go at him for being a coaching novice, but why have a go at him for reasons of no importance?

Do you know him personally? if not how do you know he has zero charisma? and what has his voice got to do with anything, as long as people can understand him who gives a shyte.

how else can he be judged . not played for several years , no head coach experience ,just his lifestyle and playing history left , as good as he was, the biggest memory is. Giggs not playing for wales but playing a few days later for his club.

I have seen online his team talk in his final game in temporary charge for Man Utd. It was awful.
He has no passion. No inspiration. Nothing.
Frankly I wouldn’t want to know him. His morals belong in the gutter.

When Gareth Edwards was at Millfield School, he opted out of playing for the Welsh Schools v England in preference for representing MIlllfield in a Sevens competition. No pressure from his headmaster influenced this decision - ask him ?

In my book playing for Club rather than Nation indicates a sound case of LOYALTY.

If you actually read his book instead of just highlights , GE write to the Selectors asking not to be selected , without knowing if he had been selected or not, and the loyalty thing , not very loyal to his new employers was he.

It's not the fact he missed all the friendlies that bother me, it's his lack of experience in any managerial role. Wasn't he associated with the worst Manchester Utd team in recent memory whilst assistant to wee Davy Moyes?

There is a lack of quality out there I guess and as I said earlier, I hope he proves me wrong

It won't work out no matter what he does, because at the first sign of trouble people will jump on his back and hound him out

As for no experience, it's the way international football has gone tbf. So many ex players cut their teeth at that level or so it seems?

Who cares about international football anyway, been shit for ages.

Not particularly tbh

Was nice to see wales do well after all these years, but I'd knocked international football on the head a long time ago and only watched one full game and that was Wales v England, almost fell asleep it was that bad

Tournament football is decent enough, it's the qualifying and friendlies that make it so shite and I've seen today that this new international league or what ever it is is being done. Last thing football needs is more international games IMO
