The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

IT HAS be­come some­thing of a tra­di­tion now among my man­age­ment team, that we nip out on a Fri­day night af­ter din­ner when we travel away and watch a film (gen­er­ally hu­mor­ous) to en­ter­tain our­selves.

I got absolutely bat­tered by my man­age­ment team on Fri­day when I chose Alan Par­tridge as our source of en­ter­tain­ment. But I have to say that Norkolk’s finest DJ?! had us in stitches and the ban­ter about my film se­lec­tion soon stopped! How­ever, the film did suc­ceed in re­duc­ing the toi­let queue on the team coach.

We are still try­ing to work out how Par­tridge man­aged to flush him­self down the WC pan on the Nor­folk Ra­dio Road­show bus. But the im­age of Par­tridge’s face look­ing up from the toi­let seems to have sig­nif­i­cantly re­duced the ap­peal of in tran­sit com­fort breaks. So when we play away, the man­age­ment’s rush from our coach does not re­flect over ex­cite- ment for the game; it is down to Par­tridge. Best not watch Psy­cho then or the coach en­vi­ron­ment will suf­fer on the way home when we stop hav­ing show­ers!
