John Gorman is so THIS season.

We (The Cobblers) have a manager!

And it is the person I would have chosen had I been consulted which I am sure I would have been if my mobile phone signal wasn't so rubbish. I expect they wasted hours trying to get hold of me and then got worried if they left it any longer he might get poached by some other team. I know they value my contribution greatly because the chairman always says so in his letter asking me to stump up for yet another season ticket.

What was I on about? Oh yes, I was on about our New Man At The Top. He is John Gorman,in April this year manager of Wycombe but that was then and this is now.

Not as easy on the eye as his predecessor whose name totally escapes me, but Wycombe under his management used to scare the hell out of me, and played attractive attacking football so all I can say is Look Out Nottingham Forest!

You Cobblers seem to have a thing about Scotsmen, don't you?

Lisa Rullsenberg said...

She's not alone in that...

I certainly have a thing about one particlar Scotsman. and I am seeing him tonight,and will be giving him the music Lisa so kindly and brilliantly downloaded for him. THANK YOU LOVELY LISA!

And maybe I will be giving him other things as well???

Now that's the sort of appointment Millwall should've made.

ah but its the mighty gills that have the wonderful Ronnie Jepson!!!

Gorman looks a good manager though, so maybe its onwards and upwards for the cobblers!?!?!

Ooh eck, hope the CDs don't intrude on the giving of any other presents.

But you weren't called into contract negotiations either? How improper.

Alan said...

More to the point, you seem to have a thing about former Spurs players. Can't fault you on that.

btw, I just got the point of your comment the other day which is why it's taken me a while to get here. Yes, I am dense!

At least he's got some experience - we've just got Jim Magilton at the Tractor Boys - passionate bloke but bugger all experience.

J.J said...

Martin, I am so glad they didn't.

Moo, calmed!

Cookie, I would love to think so.

Lisa, they did not :-)

Joe, exactly. I am outraged!

Alan's here! Hooray! And yes, we do have a Spurs 'thing'. We also get quite a few players on loan from them.

U.S. I always liked Magilton as a player and I hope he does well for you.

Martin said...

Just make sure it's the right John Gorman otherwise flans may fly.

An explanation for our overseas and younger visitors of Martin's comment can be found here. Now that was a GREAT programme!

Marc, well, if he doesn't who will?!
