The Jam Farts away. It’s rapidly coming up there as a red letter date on the calender to match our trips to Poundland. Swinecastle will see security usually only reserved for USA Presidents and Kim Khardashian as we return there.
So, what is The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of our trip there?
After a European slog returning to a play a game at a ground where the homes fans idea of culture is reading the deals of the day at Greggs is better than a home tie against supposed cannon fodder.
The players and management will know they will need to be up for it, which usually is a good thing.
I haven’t been as staunch with my defence of our gaffer this season and something is worrying me. He is tinkering like that next door neighbour who has an old Cortina in his back garden. There is nothing more transparent than a man struggling with his own skin if he is having chameleon tendencies.
I’m beginning to wonder if last season is taking it’s toll now.
Injuries will hamper his selection (the loss of Joe Ledley is a blow, it cost us the league last season) but this is not a game for curveballs. I have little knowledge of the inner workings of the game but I’m sure that playing your best available players in their best available positions has a high percentage rate of success.
Take heed Mr Lennon.
If Hearts didn’t exist it would take some sicko to even try to invent them. They have a chairmen who justified his Gary Glitter record collection earlier this season with his handling of the Thompson affair. The hypocrisy of the support who love singing about child molesting was not lost on me.
They have about a new manager in Paulo Sergio who replaced Greyfriars Jobby. I actually have some sympathy for The Jobby. He has been replaced with a man whose name and look would make him a certainty to have a long career in the Cruise Ship entertainment game or be attending Loius Walsh mansion as an over 35 crooner specialising in Neil Diamond in this weeks c*nt factor.
In ‘Just Say No’ Ian Black they have a player who is vying to win the most scrotum like player award with Keith Lasley and Steven Naebalance. If you were put in a room with gun and a one bullet then what would be the outcome?
Add to that Swinecastle looks like a pink bus shelter that you buy drugs in.
To paraphrase Lloyd:”Who would support a team like this?” John Wilson, that’s who. There have been Travellers sites that have been closed down for less.
