The Daily Cut and Thrust / Game: Managers. How sentimental are you?
So, we have agreed that the patience being shown to TGLE is driven in part by sentimentality. I an genuinely curious as to where other managers sit on this scale. We will be able to get a sense of our collective perspective, establish if it is an all or nothing phenomenon and find out who amongst us is hard nosed and who is a softie.

I am starting since Clough but old timers may want to earlier. 22 managers in 21 years...you can ignore those with a tenure of 4 months or less which still leaves 16.

Marks out of 10 where
10= all the time in the world. Relegation from current division is acceptable based on past history or future potential.
1= totally unconvined at the start, would start grumbling after the first missed pass in game 1. Unswayed even after a massive win at Liverpool or d*rby.

The Daily Cut and Thrust / Vegas question
Will be passing through Vegas en route to/from national parks next month. Will be with Lady guru and guru minor (now 9y).

I will of course be introducing the young lad to gambling, strip clubs and beach parties*

Any recommendations on hotels, shows or other activity?

Rich...Blue man group for a nine year old?



* that is a joke if you are monitoring NSA/yewtree.

The Daily Cut and Thrust / World Cup in Brasil
I know it's early but our season has tanked and there is a serious possibility that Liverpool could win the title so I wanted to look into the middle distance to June and WC2014.

I HAVE JUST BOOKED MY FLIGHTS TO BRAZIL!!

Currently have access to a mixed and weird collection of tickets in Cuiaba (Nigeria/Bosnia) , Manaus (Portugal/USA, err Switzerland/Honduras) and then Rio (round of 16). I have largely elected to take England out of the equation so that I can at least enjoy the football and the atmosphere.

Or should I leg it to Belo Horizonte to see them in what will be a wooden spoon decider vs Costa Rica if I can get my hands on a ticket?
