Ferguson: the new godfather of English Football?

07 December 2019 - 11:09 AM

Duncan Ferguson takes charge of his beloved Everton FC for the first time today. A fine servant of the club, and arguably the best Scottish player of his generation who was badly let down by the football authorities in his home country at a tender young age.

English Football is now ready for a new hard-as-nails Scotsman to boss it from head-to-toe once again, and they don't come any harder than him. This is the guy who will be able to get the best out of underperforming expensive players and know who needs the arm-around-the-shoulder approach and who will need the kick-in-the-balls approach; a natural progression from the likes of Jim McLean and Walter Smith. Everton had a few Carlos-kick-a-balls and a Dutch Cap as manager since Sir David Moyes moved on to Man United, and the heart has been somewhat displaced from them since then, but Dunc is the guy to restore the heart and soul of the club and guide the club back to the top where they rightfully belong.

Today's match: vs. Dunfermline, away 7/12/19

The Bookies don't seem to have given us much of a chance in this one, but I'm quietly optimistic.

1-1, cadden.

Congratulations to David Hopkin

Out of interest, what is everyone's broadband speeds, who is your server and how much are you paying per month?

Not a game of one-upmanship or anything like that, but in the market for a new supplier for the first time in a several years and keen to know what others are paying for what service.
