    I've actually worked on 51 films and we always have several directors, or "Dirs" as we call them in the trade.
    I have heard that some of the little "homemade" movies can get by with just one.

    Does anyone else wonder if this is connected with the US investors? Maybe they wanted a divorce from Mogi before they'd put their money in and this is a symptom of that.

    This is all speculation on my part - absolutely not ITK on this.

    Is Scientology any more weird and silly than any other religion?

  7. Difficult. But given it's bizarre unfounded specifics about Thetans etc it's up there with Mormonism as particularly daft.

    I think it may be a bit more redolent in arrogant dismissal of others.

    On TC , this video is brilliant if you've got the time to watch it.

    I'm fascinated by the guy, because he is an incredibly talented but very strange human being.

    Giaretta is still going to be doing what he has always done, potter around getting in the way and reporting back to Pozzo while contributing nothing to the football club. A complete wage thief who is only here because he's a friend of the Pozzo family. If Pozzo really wanted to change then Giaretta would be the first out of the door, but he obviously still wants his informant around. Manga will find us good players but as for the way we're run then I personally can't see it changing.

    Do we reckon we will get an official announcement? Or will he be another one that just starts working for the club, is visible etc, but the club never actually acknowledge his hiring?

    No. They announced him. It’s just that they shouldn’t have.

    Any idea what this means for the clubs relationship with Mogi as I dont see the two being compatible.

    Can’t find the post but an eagle eyed forum member scouted Helena Costa in an Instagram post a few weeks ago. She looks like a top addition too.

    Can't recall hearing of any other female scouts before.

    She’s a former manager was the first appointed manager for a mens club claremont foot sadly resigned before taking a game. Was then a scout at eintract Frankfurt for those unaware

    Im chuffed to bits with his and his teams addition. Hopefully Gino gives him a bit of wonga to work some magic.

    She’s the former manager of the Qatari and Iranian women’s side and then had a brief stint at Claremont Foot where she quite due to off-field interference before managing a game. Then had a good stint at Eintracht and presumably has a good working relationship with Manga.

    I think it is great for the club to have a prominent female executive. Not so much because it’s breaking the glass ceiling etc etc but just because I think obviously the most talented women are going to be more talented than fairly talented men. Emma Hayes is an obvious example.

    Will he be here this time next season ??

    How can Emma Hayes be "an obvious example" when her success came in a competition that didn't even have men?
  32. LeedsOrn

    LeedsOrn Reservist

    My point is that Emma Hayes would be a superior manager to some of the dross EFL managers on the merry go round. I’d much rather have her in charge of my team than say Paul Ince.

    And there are male coaches in women’s football actually.

    Who knows?

    As an aside, being a scout and a manager aren't the same types of job. It would surely be less pressurised being a female scout in the men's game then a female manager.

    Most of the major countries at the last Women's Euros had women managers.
