As football’s January transfer window closes why not play ‘Ukip Manager’?

by Stephen Tall on January 31, 2014

Here’s a snippet from Ukip’s 2010 general election manifesto:

“Ukip would place a maximum of three foreign players in the starting line-up, as this would free up places for British players in the youth academies of these teams and spur the future development of home teams.”

As Paul Haydon points out here,

That would force managers to make some pretty tough decisions about who they would keep and who they would give the boot. Where would that leave your favourite team? Who would you keep and who would you send home? Toure or Silva? Negredo or Aguero? Oscar or Hazard?

Well, now’s your chance to play ‘Ukip Manager’ and decide for yourself:

Click on any of the teams below to play UKIP Manager. Scroll up when you’re done to see how others voted, you can then let others know your top three choices on Twitter and Facebook using #UKIPmanager.

If you agree that UKIP’s off-the-wall ideas would be bad for the Premiership and bad for Britain, you can sign the Lib Dem #whyiamIN petition here.

Manchester City

Liverpool

Manchester United

Arsenal

Chelsea

Tottenham

Quite why a second-rate team like Man United is featured but not Everton is beyond me, but there are you are.
