Chris robertson the PE teacher would have loved having somebody of that calibre in the school.

We'd be cursing tho about a missed opportunity. 

 

Saints or Falkirk ain't winning the sc within the next 50 years either. 

 

I agree, but as a number two or part of the coaching team, no issue at all. 

Saints won the cup in 2014.

Best woman’s team in the world hammered 5-2 by an u15’s American boys team. ?

 

Its about levels, not about her gender though. 

The boy's face in the second picture, top right.... he is definitely saying to himself "I think I'm in there"!!

If she is our next manager it would be for no other reason than the fact she is female and for some reason that is ok with people.

 

Absolutely ridiculous to suggest she has no professional credentials.

If a man applied to be our manager with her CV he would not get the job.

That's a great comparison, just like Scottish football on the international scene... Scottish football is sh***, it's all about levels... Not about nationality...

I’s rather she was tested in the men’s game elsewhere first.  If she succeeds, then why not?

 

Not sure what her contacts will be like, when it comes to signing players, though.

She was also much more incisive in her analysis than the Waldorf Brothers.

 

 

The obvious difference being she has at least put herself on the line by coaching/managing while those two teens have bottled doing that.

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

 

 

 

Michael Stewart has no managerial experience. Shelley Kerr does.

Yes but it is not her management experience which is exciting the OP, it is that she is PHW...it is pathetic how anyone who has ever played for or supported Hearts is regarded as being at the top of the list.

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?

 

Why not?. Hearts have shown the way with lots of initiatives since AB took over so I don't see why there would be any problem. She certainly knows her stuff and it would get the football world taking note of Hearts if it were to happen.

I think we should be leaving no stone unturned to get the best for the club. If Shelley is good enough, by all means sign her up. Gender shouldn’t come into it.

If she is a good manager then don’t really care if she’s a man or a woman. 

 

Womens football might be a lower level to men’s but not sure that really makes much difference on how you manage a team.  Ian Cathro had never managed a team in his life or played football, yet we were applauding levein for taking a ambitious risk :laugh:

 

Playing is different because of the physicality but are we saying all women in football are too thick to manage a men’s squad?  I don’t know about her specifically but it’s hardly out of the realms of possibility that a woman would be better at managing a football team than a man.

Not for me.

 

Women are too busy running countries and massive corporate entities. Managing a football team would be too much for them.

She needs to go and manage at a higher level than the female national team, maybe somewhere like bonnyrigg rose and then work her way up. 

 

You can't just give her the hearts job because she's a woman.

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.

 

It won’t. The standard at the moment while slowly improving of SWPL is well below junior level.

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

 

I agree, if football is still having problems with sectarianism and antisemitism etc then how can anyone expect there wont be misogynistic  slurs.

The question isn't whether she should play for Hearts. The standard of women's football is irrelevant. Relevant points are ''is she qualified''. That's about it.

If she's good enough then why not.

 

Is she good enough? Almost impossible to tell either way to be honest.

 

For her to take on a club the size of Hearts, with the added pressure of being the first female manager etc, I would think she would need to either have a job prior to that or come in as part of the coaching team before moving up. 

 

I thought she spoke well and seemed to be highly knowledgeable so couldn't write it off. 

 

Our next manager shouldn't be a project though!

but given the way some of our support struggle with decorum, I’d fear for her

Exactly.

Lots of women/ladies teams have male managers and/or coaches.

I'm sure she'd do an excellent job for the Hearts Ladies team since Budge is giving it a decent bit of cash to get up and running.

 

Being a Hearts fan I'm sure there would be appeal in that. That said, national team in womens football seems more consistent than league, like i'm sure ive seen players than have barely any club appearances but tons of national caps.

The OP was about Shelley Kerr being considered for Hearts not about the quality of Women's football in general.

 

I have known Shelley from her time as manager of  Stirling University FC's football squad that have teams in both the Lowland League and EOS League.  She came to Stirling Uni after a stint as manager of Arsenal Ladies. I was impressed by the set-up at Striling but my son decided on a soccer scholarship to a US Uni instead.

 

The SWFL is poor, a look at the teams that play in Div 1 does suggest the level of the ladies game.  However, this is no reflection on Shelley's ability.  After the World Cup she (and her lucky maroon knickers) could join Levein's backroom staff.  I would have no objection to that.

Would rather see her managing the men's national team - it's not like there's a high bar for performance there set by Big Eck.

Fair point. 

 

She shouldn't get it now because she wouldn't e the best candidate that applied. 

 

I wouldn't want Hearts to be first to do this either. 

 

I would have no objection to her being a coach or reserve manager tho, I'd she was the best candidate.

If it fails it would women chances of getting a male football managers gig back centuries. 

 

Wouldn't rush it and make sure if and when a club do it that she has all the chances to do a good job
