Who I had the pleasure to meet on more than one occasion, Mr John Lyall.
The quote is by Tom Ince about his father, Paul, during his time at West Ham; ‘John Lyall made him paint the training ground gates for a month — he had to come in at six every morning — and from then on he took him under his wing and made him aware of the talent he had.’
How refreshing of bringing, when needed sometimes, players into a sense of reality and not taking things for granted.
He's on there, and I'm only watching it as I'm at work as a form of passing the time, but the ---- was given a ITFC scarf to attempt to sell in 15 seconds and he made the cheapest, crassest remarks about us. God, I HOPE that smug EX-politician has his smile and side digs wiped away! He just sums up the type of person you have and find who go into politics regrettably.
