In my pomp , I used to play no 9 for a team in the Ford League. We were the only ‘white collar’ team in the league and the other teams were called after their locations – The Engine Plant , The Coke Oven, The Blast Furnace , Tractor Plant, etc . Being rather partial to the odd show offy piece of skill, I can still remember the day, with my back to Reg , the York Crankshaft Line’s left back how I perfectly executed a little flick over his onrushing beer belly. Satisfying as it was at the time , for the remaining 80 minutes or so , I had to suffer a whole range of threats involving where a York Crankshaft might end up in my anatomy and numerous attempts at maiming me . I decided from that point onwards that flicky football had no place on the fields of rush green and romford.
I’m sorry to say this , but I’m a bit worried that Astrit and Reza might be a bit partial to the old flicky, fiddly, tippy , tappy stuff.
Which brings us to Nottingham Forest’s new manager , Neil Warnock. I might be wrong but Ive got a feeling he might be related to Reg from the Crankshaft line
