Brought in on loan ny a new manager with a view to signing permanently when his work permit is renewed.
By the time it is renewed there is a new manager n charge, who has worked with him before, didn't seem to like him and doesn't play him.
Gets loaned back to the club we brought him from.
Starts the next season as first choice RB, but is replaced after only 3 games and thereafter plays only a bit part as cover for his injured replacement.
Apart from warming the bench a couple of times next season he has no involvement before going out on loan again.
Starts on the bench again the following season, but gets into the team quickly after injuries to first Toto then KVY, after which he becomes an absolute revelation, one of the best and most consistent players of the season so far.
Part way through his first season here I thought it would be best for all concerned if his work permit wasn't renewed.
Frankly it is a miracle he didn't leave the club long ago and even more so that he has been so good this season
How much character does that show, to come so good after such a stop start career here.
I work for a company that has offices throughout the world. We have big ones in Manilla and Chennai, and I am familiar with people in those offices whose names seem a.bit 'quirky' to my Western sensibilities. For instance we have a number of Rommels and now a Stalin, and those are first names.
I'd love to know why their parents chose those names but dare not ask.
Thought Jewell was a great appointment Approved of McCarthy Hadn't the f'cking foggiest idea about Hurst Thought Lambert would be good and was convinced Cook would turn things round.
Just goes to show how much of an idea I have.
Anyway I am calling for Jacob Neestrup assistant coach at FC Copenhagen because it seems to be the fashion to bring in some one who holds a minor coaching position at a foreign club, and also because I like the URI for Copenhagen's website and and think it deserves an airing.
