He' a pretentious douchebag.

He's been dealing with children's nutrition for years now, so it seems a natural fit.

To be fair, which other UK celeb chef would have been a good choice?

Delia Smith: is part owner of Norwich City, would probably end up poisoning them
Nigel Slater: Nigel is God--the players would be spending more time eating than training
Nigella Lawson: Nigella is a goddess, the players would be spending more time looking at her (and getting fat off of her tasty but calorie-high recipes) than training
Gordon Ramsey: he and Mancini would get in a shouting match on day one, then Baltotelli would storm off and Mancini would have to go crawling off to find him

Marcus Wareing. Similar story: new brash upcomer trying to take out his longtime rival.

Well, that would be more exciting to watch than the two-horse race for the BPL title. See, it's a joke that their soccer leagues suck because there's no playoffs. Though I guess it has to be simple since every club plays in a million different competitions during the year.

The EPL is great that way, the FA and sponsor of the year cups are the playoffs!
/ELP!

Heston Blumenthal - Seemingly needlessly complicated but gets the results in the end. Sort of like Rafa 5 years ago.

too true....

They should bring in Andy Bates, who makes some very tasty pies. But then all the City players would end up fat like Rooney.

Yes well seeing as that according to his own autobiography Gordon Ramsay scored a hat trick for Rangers in two consecutive winning European Cup finals, how could they refuse?

Jamie Oliver's cookbooks are farking awesome. Soccer is still boring as hell.
 
2013-01-11 11:13:43 PM  
Could he slip some strychnine into their meals?

/Most money spent with no massive payoff
//Maybe the headcases will like better food

Malcontent children especially.
