Midweek Memoirs of Mr Bodell

Midweek Memoirs of Mr Bodell
First and foremost, here`s to three points tonight against Plymouth Argyle, God knows we need a pick up after the abysmal performance at Wednesday on Saturday. Now, here`s what`s caught my eye this week.

Zola to West Ham
A good thing probably, but for now a gamble, a man with no managerial experience, one of the nice guys in football, trying to control the likes of Dyer, Bowyer, Bellamy and Neill?! He`ll either have them all out or all doing Yoga to calm down the dressing room. Another thing - is he the only manager, ever, to have managed here and be fully prepared to work with a 'Technical-footballing-director-come general-mini-Hitler trying to win your job`?

Will Spurs ever be successful?
It`s the perennial footballing query, but seriously? Will they? They sacked Martin Jol about this time last year and now their 'Super Manager` Juande Ramos has won the League Cup, great, no-one truly successful cares, they want to win league games, of which he`s won three since that glorious triumph. Add to this that he`s sold the important players like Keane and Berbatov [a good manager would`ve quadrupled his wages] and you have to wonder why he`s still in a job with Spurs residing in 20th…still. Challenging the top four, pssh.

If I was Mark Hughes, I`d walk
Sorry Sparky, but there`s no way you can deliver the owners expectations, walk now, with your head held high before the owners give you the fat Ronaldo, Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Kaka, Priskin [!] and Berbatov. It`s not worth the hassle, unless you`re waiting for an Island in compensation…or some petrol!

Terry Wins Appeal!
How? Sorry, was that not the epitomy of the professional foul against Man City? Am I the only person who wanted the bully-boy thug of a poor choice for England captain suspended? The F.A are once again a disgrace, bowing down to the bigger clubs. It was a rugby tackle, not a football tackle, simple as.

Danny Guthrie Wins Appeal!
No not really, and I doubt he will, because there can be no appeal for breaking Craig Fagan`s leg at the second attempt. What a horrible little thug he is, picking up tips of Barton no doubt. He should be handed a fine and 6 match ban I think, easily. Just his thuggish little face winds me up.

Talking of Barton…
He should have been released on the spot by Newcastle and banned from ever playing football again anywhere in the Universe, no one who behaves and conducts themselves like him should be allowed near the public spotlight nor near the public in the first place. I hope he is consigned to a small Island on the other side of the world to live out his days attacking coconuts and trees.

Finally…
Tamas Priskin update. Still rubbish, still no goals. Still no contribution.

Keep the faith,
Tom Bodell

You and spot on with your comments about Barton, a serial thug who's already had too many second chances, and also Guthrie who has escaped further punishment. A total nonsense. However, so is what went on at the Vic last night, I appreciate we are short of resources but why was Williamson ( a central midfielder) played wide right and O'Toole (an attacking midfielder) played mainly in a defensive role behind Eustace? Am trying hard to keep the faith but we need something good to happen very soon or we'll be in big trouble.... Come On You Golden Boys!
