hands off!


I’m not a huge follower of the England football team (too many disappointments over too many years!) and wasn’t particularly surprised by another woeful display against such world-beaters as Israel yesterday. By the end of the game, fans were chanting “you don’t know what you’re doing” at the current England manager. This didn’t really worry me… but then I suddenly realised that I SHOULD be worried!
Here's the scenario: within the next couple of months, the powers-that-be decide that they’ve made a terrible mistake in appointing McClaren as manager - fine, no worries. BUT then they decide to make Martin O’Neil (the Villa manager) their target for the England vacancy!
No way/hands off (you heard it here first!)!

Oh dad! Just when things were beginning to get better for the villa! I have a sneaky feeling your prediction may be correct though. How do you feel about being in charge of villa in your spare time?

no problem...I could probably do it pert-time from Bristol (probably with McClaren as my assistant?).

yeah - easy!!! You might need to revert back to the accent of your youth though. Come on, practice "oop tha veelaa"!!

...if mcclaren's too busy to be your assistant how about a certain mr t galvin? he's not doing much these days and i'm sure carole'd be happy to have him gainfully employed...
