Shelley Kerr - Future Hearts Manager?

Recommended Posts

sum31uk

Revealed on the BBC today that she is a big jambo. She has a great managerial CV and is currently doing a fantastic job for Scotland. 

 

Would Hearts fans welcome her as manager once Levein hangs up his umbro baseball cap?

If she is good enough then she is the right person for the job.

 

Simple as that really.

Don't think it will happen at any top flight or championship clubs around Europe for a good while yet. But personally I'd be fine with it. If your good enough etc etc.

Women's pro football is public park level.

If she's good enough then absolutely. 

 

I wonder if there is as big a gap in coaching standards as there is in playing ones though? I doubt we would take a punt on someone who hasn't coached in the men's game.

I thought she came across very well as a pundit. She knows her stuff and has previously managed men’s teams, It was pleasing to hear she’s a big Jambo but she was still very objective in her analysis.

 

That said, I think it will be a while before we see a woman managing professional men’s teams, if ever.

Watched the England V Spain match last week I wish Hearts players could control and pass a ball as good as the Spanish women could.

Would be quite a nice change. People would be on her back immediately though, for all the wrong reasons.

Shelley has already managed a men's team (Stirling Uni) If she's good enough her gender is immaterial.

I know a couple of people who rate her very highly...I would be open to it.

I don't think women are ready for the abuse and pressure of managing in the male football world though.

I think she'd need to do an apprenticeship as an assistant.

That game was played at Swindon, half a mile from my work. It attracted a crowd of 11,000, twice what Swindon Town get at a run of the mill home game. The town centre and magic roundabout were gridlocked. 

 

Standards in women’s football are definitely improving with several professional national  leagues.

:lol:

 

She'd be torn into from all sides. Especially the: "It's a man's game" club.

 

That being said, I'm going to board the hypocrisy bus and say no thanks. 

 

Her analysis at HT & FT was very good though.

It's only a question of time before someone takes a chance on a leading woman manager. No chance we could ever recruit a male manager who got a team to a World Cup. Well regarded by many people as a coach. 

Her desire to succeed would be intensified as she would be a pioneer as a top flight manager in the UK. More inspiring than most of the shouts I have heard for next manager and infinitely preferable to the coaching staff we have in place.

All for it if she was the person for the job until I saw she played for and managed Hibs. No thanks.

If she proves herself in lower leagues I don't see why not, but she'd need that kind of credibility in the men's game before she'd command the necessary respect in the changing room IMO.

When she stops with Scotland maybe bring her in as a u18 manager. Give her a few years with the youngsters and let them get to know her. If she a success then let her progress with the team to u21/reserve manager. So if she ever appointed 1st team manager the backbone of our squad will know and respect her and fight for her. No way straight in as no 1.

The board took a massive risk with the Cathro appointment & it wouldn’t surprise me if Ann Budge took a shine to this idea too bringing in a female coach.

 

The Cathro experiment didn’t work out to good obviously and I just think the poor PR we had from then would stop this type of thinking until an English team tried it first.

Would attract even more women to the game. And has international level experience. Why not be bold and give it a go?

That would be a World first in top flight men’s football I believe? As I said before hearts are not an experiment,we’re a serious football club, if we were to appoint Kerr she would have to prove herself at another men’s professional team first and that’s that. Let’s say she does do that and wins a Scottish cup for example with another men’s team then yes I’d be all for it, but we can’t risk another “cathro” moment again.

Would be the same circus as Cathro, media would go mental. Kris Boyd would have a field day. I wouldn't mind if she was a top manager but it would be drama.

She came across very well and a good shout for a coach or assistant manger. Ann is trail blazer so it would not surprise me.

Would see if she could coach the reserves or unders first.

 

If she is good enough, her gender shouldn't matter.

No thanks. 

Today I watched a professional footballer in a Hearts top run with the ball then stop to look at his feet to check whether he still had the ball.

 

The women’s game will catch up fast enough, believe me.

I would say that this sort of humour belongs in the 1970s, but then again I doubt it was even funny then.

I think she’d have to coach in men’s football first.

 

The problem for me isn’t her gender but the level of woman’s football compared to men’s. 

 

It’s not only that but say we did appoint her and she failed miserably, what would that say about woman coaches? No one would ever give another woman a chance ever again.

 

If she can prove herself as a coach in league 1 or the Championship here in Scotland as a good coach then it would be a yes from me. Like others have said, it would be Ian Cathro territory and an enormous gamble which I don’t believe is something we should be looking at ever again.
