|New Man, New Hope|
Written by SpiritOfJohn on Saturday, 30th Jun 2018 13:53
As an occasional poet of the third rate variety, I have been scratching around for a few weeks trying to think of a rhyme or song to fit our new manager. Paul Hurst is hardly a name to get the creative juices overflowing, which is due to its no-nonsense shortage of syllables rather than his achievements in the beautiful game.
Meanwhile, players are being sold and the honeymoon period is almost over before it even began. Then I thought back to my reaction when I first heard the news of Mr Hurst's appointment, with the conversation going something like:
"SpiritOfJohn, what do you think of the new Town boss?" I was asked. "Who is it?" I enthusiastically replied.
So there you have it, a warm welcome to the new manager and sincere best wishes towards extracting us from the death-grip of the Championship and let's hope for good times just around the corner.
We had Super Mick
We need a man
In recent times
With greats like Sir Bobby
Crawford and Baxter

Beware the Man With a Plan by ElephantintheRoom
“I love it when a plan comes together”, a gurning George Peppard was fond of saying every week on that cult 80s TV show, The A-Team.
