Hmmmm


Rather than show my total ignorance of all things football I'll wait til Dave sleeps off his martinis and asks.  ;D




So long and thanks for all the fish

"We don't do walking away" was an iconic quote (a bit like maggies 'the ladys not for turning') from the then manager Ally McCoist when Glasgow Rangers fc hit the skids about ten years ago. The 'present' manager Steven Gerrard has just left the club to go boss Aston Villa. You sort of need to be a football fan with a reasonable memory to see the significance of the meme.
I read a lot of football forums (yes, i'm sad, lol) and i've recently seen what i thought was a really funny analogy about Newcastle United (now the worlds richest club after an Arab takeover), they've just appointed ex Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe as manager and some wag likened it to "winning the lottery then going out and buying a second hand lada". Cruel but funny (i hope the guy does well for them though tbh)...  :)

Gerrard spent 3 and a half years at Rangers, he's done his time  ;D

Yes, i think he did well for them up there too. He's a way off his dream job at Liverpool just yet but you never know. As Jimmy Greaves used to say, "it's a funny old game, saint"... Lol.  ;D

This is the next stepping stone, let's see how he does at Villa, I hope they give him time.

As for Howe I'd hardly call him a Lada and it's good to see British managers getting the jobs.
