Bit of a light hearted one...

Tony Pulis turns up week in week out looking like he is about to pull on a pair of boots and play himself. He even turned up looking like a piece of chav scum for the FA cup final if I remember correctly. For what reason exactly? MON is the same.

What should managers wear? Casual, suit, or anything they want. Personally if I was in such a high profile position I'd want to look at my best, maybe that's just me.

So's Lambert Jack

Having Hughton being in a suit most of the time is a nice change.

But I think it should be left to them wether they wear the Club Shop or a suit

I don't think it really matters, I can understand why some managers wear a suit, but I think it's perfectly acceptable to wear a tracksuit as well, or even Owen Coyle's shorts. Clearly the managers want to send a different message to their players, those that wear tracksuits or similar are trying to show that they are more like a coach than a business man, that they're happy to do the grafting if necessary.

I don't think it really matters though.

Disagree to be honest crimey. That would be like a director of an oil company turning up in rags. They should set a good example.

Moyes often trains with his players in the build up to a match therefore often wears tracksuits etc.

I don't think it is, the director of an oil company is more directly comparable with the Chairman of a football club who do wear suits. The manager of an oil rig probably does wear the same things as the rest of the crew. There is absolutely no reason to wear a suit really.

As far as i can see if a manager acts as a coach ie very hands on and heavily involed in training - then they generally wear tracksuits, and why shouldnt they? A suit is totally unsuited for that. Other managers take more of an overview - involved in strategy, tactics, transfers and negotiations between agents and chairmen - which generally tracksuits are unsuitable for.

Either way whats important is the manager has the respect of the players rather than what he wears

Track suits are something you wear when exercising, something a manager doesn't do on a math day. Don't see the need for them.

what does it matter? Are you saying that if Boris Johnson went into the changing rooms then the players would automatically respect his footballing knowledge just because he's wearing a suit? Or that they wouldn't respect Martin O'Neills footballing knowledge because he was in a tracksuit?

No, that would be silly. Nice little story you told yourself there though.

They can at least make an effort to look respectable. Pulis looks like one of those middle aged men you see in cities drinking carlsberg special brew at midday.

There was a study in the paper a couple of seasons back that said the most effective managers where track suits on the training ground and suits on match days.

Personally don't see an issue either way its all down to the message the manager wants to convey to his team
