'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Get the Harpoon Gun Out

It started with a phone-in to a radio show. Sam Allardyce was heading a consortium to take over Bolton Wanderers. At the time, old walrus face was still skidding along on his backside down the A1, after being booted out of Newcastle. It seemed unlikely. It still does, unless the fat one has hither to unknown experience as a financier. However, like a grotesque Chinese whisper, the story gathers pace, and it`s different every time you hear it. The latest, seriously unattractive, name to be mentioned is that of Freddy Shepherd. Even more worryingly, some Bolton fans want him to take over as chairman. Those people need to be inhumanely euthanized.

If there`s a way not to run a football club, then Shepherd demonstrated it. A succession of poor quality managers, hired and then fired, but not until they`d been allowed to spend serious money. Add to that, a contempt for the fans that had to be heard to be believed. Fortunately, Freddy`s lack of discretion mean that it was heard. One Newcastle supporter described him as an 'evil Humpty Dumpty.` Another summed him up thus:

"Shepherd almost ruined Newcastle. We were in a massive amount of debt before Ashley took over thanks to Shepherd. I firmly believe we would have became the next Leeds if Ashley hadn't took over. Add that to the constant lying to fans and the unjust sacking of Sir Bobby Robson."

So load up on those harpoons. Not for Fat Freddy, but for the retards who think that having him anywhere near Bolton Wanderers Football Club would be a good idea.
