Christmas Cards and Greetings


This is the time of year when we send Christmas cards and extend greetings of the season. Here’s some I’d like to send:

To Pools: A picture of Bradford City.
To remind them of the 5-0 win in the JPT Trophy. The night faith was restored.

To Steve Howard: A view card of the City of Sheffield. 
To remind him that the city of Sheffield gave him something to smile about last season. His two goals against Sheffield United and his successful loan spell with Wednesday.

To Northampton Town and Bury: A picture of a football pitch. 
To remind them that that’s where the ball should spend most of its time instead of in the air. As Cloughie once said: “If God had meant football to be played in the air he would have put grass in the sky”.

To Manchester City’s manager Manuel Pellegrini: A simple message : Sunderland scored one and Manchester City had a blank sheet. 
After the Sunderland game, he was credited with saying “I don’t know how City lost”. 

To Peter Hartley and Gary Liddle: A picture of the League One table.
To remind them that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

To Albion Rovers: A picture of my son.
To let them know that they cost him the sum of £191.45 when they knocked Motherwell out of the Scottish Cup.

To Crawley Town: After sacking Richard Barker, perhaps a good message would be: “Ambition’s ok but keep things in perspective.” - Portsmouth, Coventry and Plymouth will tell you that.

To Ritchie Humphreys: “Good on yer, Ritchie - glad that there’s life after Pools”

To Sepp Blatter: “A peaceful Christmas, you blathering old biddy. Once Christmas is over do something about the construction workers in Qatar”.

To Roy Hodgson: A picture of H’angus the Monkey. One place where monkeys aren’t out of place.


To everybody out there: A happy Christmas!!!!
