By studying the philosophy of football managers, you can often deduce a lot about the society where the managers have been rised.

Managers having a rigid philosophy that allow very little individual choise and artistry for the players, are often rised in a very authoritorian society.

Many societies seem very democratic at the surface, yet are strictly autoritarian when real decisions are made.

An example of such a society is Norway, and an example of a football manager that show that autoritorian leadership is Egil Drillo Olsen, actually an old marxist that lead his teams according to soviet communist style.

So, if you want to learn how the Norwegian society is working, study Norwegian football managers.

Much of the same can be said about English fottball managers, but those show openly their authoritarian attitude, while Norwegian managers hide it from the surface.
