  • No its not the Skunk, its that bloke who stalks the touchline whenever our team are on the field, and he still doesn't look as though he knows what he's doing. And as for the song, its so bad that I quite like it, particularly the bit about Wes' b*ttom, which if you or I tried to get into print, would surely be ethered, so, from now on, I'm going to sing my posts, that'll fool em

  • Absolutely brilliant but should have had Hughton playing a church organ or harmonium. The electric guitar is far too exciting and entertaining for him.

  • Waclor, really think your statements over Hughton being boring are looking more and more like someone stuck in last season. Formations and style have been steadily moving towards a more offensive style all season.

  • Wes is sometimes capable of a bit of magic. This argument that he's a magic ingredient that we can't do without is a bit over the top though. Magic only started happening against Wolves when he came off!

  • …..Late on parade again BP....damn Sat Nav let me down!....I penned something similar a few years back....to the tune of 'Oh Mr Porter'!.... It began....“Oh! Mr Roeder, what have you done?..you've taken over our Football Club, and dumped our Favourite Son”!....about six verses in all !....Football goes on!...It's just the names that Change!..... …...'Offensive'! …now that is a word that needs a closer look!....My Dictionary tells me that it means:- .. 'insulting:- ill smelling:- aggressive'!....I suppose we could put our sides performances in that category!.....much of the time!.....Ho! Ho! Ho!.......I'm quite surprised no one has asked what Ho! Ho! Ho! is an abbreviation of!.....

  • Steely, you are very kind. I'd had the misfortune of rolling into work, some two hours late on Tuesday morning, like some dishevelled fag end that had reinvented himself from the gutter as the Emperor from the Emperor's new clothes. Consequently, I'd pitched up to see my last client at gone 6.30pm, and got home about eight. Realising that a further night's drunkeness was not on the cards, I decided to check out the latest postings, as one does. Catharticly, if indeed such a word exists, and just for the record, I don't give a fig's armpit if it doesn't, I had indulged in our mutually favourite pastime, catching up one’s fellows opinions. I happened to notice one person’s postings who had, shall we say, wriggled under one’s collar, and, head of house had decided that my eloquent delivery was to be summarily dismissed. Imagine, trudging the streets of London all day, and coming home to that, my blood boiled like fetid wine. It simply wasn’t playing cricket, and on that noble subject, while sympathising with your plight, I have to say, that from an early age, my father put me off cricket for life, and therefore Steely, I am forever indebted to you, as regards the nation’s second sport, and whilst having every sympathy for you as regards the unfortunate coincidence of having to put up with the most infernal idiots, alas, I simply know nothing of the subject. My mother recently asked me if I would be coming up for Christmas and all it’s inevitable trimmings. As one does, I made my excuses, otherwise, I would have suggested meeting up for a pint, and believe me, I am tempted, but unfortunately, I don’t think it will happen, at least not for me. In days gone by, I would have suggested the Ferry House, but regrettably, it resembles Miss Faversham from Dickens’ Great Expectations, jilted at the altar like Grant Holt. So, let me take this opportunity to wish you well, and I sincerely hope some of you do get together, if only to pen your literary skills, with relentless enthusiasm, so that Wes and, indeed certain managerial persons, can get together to sing from the same hymn sheet and encourage a few more goals. Happy Christmas one and all.

  • Bill - you were certainly on fine form last night. Must be the Bohemian lifestyle you are living whilst the rest of us have turned it in for the night. As you were ethered I'm not sure if you agreed with me regarding the most boring bunch of sports fans in the World. English cricket's barmy army. Infantile behaviour from men in their 40's, 50's and 60's. I have had the dubious experience of sitting amongst them in Sri Lanka and SA. Sad men who have gone through their lives without any experience of the opposite s*x. They get excited if spoken to by a waitress or hotel receptionist. Another bunch to avoid are the press corps.They check into a hotel with the 'don't you know who I am' approach. They were once in a line behind me and asking the hotel staff why they were checking in a piece of dog dirt (me) before them.

  • Are you reelin in the years, stowing away the time? Have you had enough of Wes, well I think he's very fine. [sung to the tune of Reelin in the Years by Steely Dan], a fine band who have nothing whatsoever to do with that bloke who keeps coming on here, showing off a lot about football, while insulting one of the world's best guitarists and mistaking him for one of the world's worst managers, a man who probably wouldn't recognise a stratocaster if it walloped him in the face. I bet you what you like, he'd say please stop hitting me with that Les Paul, a man who ‘wouldn’t know a diamond if he held it in his hand’ let alone be able to tell you anything about its formation And while I think about it, please don't tell anyone, but I do think Delia looks quite s*xy on the drums, and yes I know its ridiculous putting an asterisk in there, but I'm not risking writing this bles*ed monologue again. What say you Stew? Guess we'll have to wait for the morning to find out now, way past your bed time. Me, I'm just annoyed that Sunderland won, they'll think they know the answer to everything from how to mend the Syrian crisis to why Ed B*lls is the biggest eejut in Parliament now. But, all's well that ends well, and Delia will know what to do. She'll whisper in the wee man's ear, 'If you want mince pies for Christmas my love, you better get Wes off the bench. I rest my weary suitcase, by the side of the road that leads to the Stadium of Light, whistling, 'They call me Mellow Yellow, doobie doobie do..

  • Fantastic! A satirical song that works as a song and as satire and a fine video. Not sure I entirely agree that Wes is the Messiah though.

  • Thanks LYB, I still think Hughton's approach is more like a job of work like accountancy than a sporting challenge and entertainment with passion and flair. I find his interviews boring and cliché-ridden. To be fair he does seem to be collecting some better players at Norwich but I doubt if he will ever get the best out of them in terms of tactics and motivation. Perhaps the triangle would be a more apt musical instrument for him, ie limited and with no frills.
