Farewell to a Gentleman

22 September, 2008

There was a sombre atmosphere hanging over Cuckoo Farm after the match on Saturday. As it turns out Geraint Williams had probably already decided he was on the move. His body language on the day told it all. He had his arms crossed for most of the match, and only unfolded them when some idiots in the West Stand were being restrained by stewards, and GW beckoned them forward to speak their mind. Even to the end he was prepared to tolerate even the most insulting behaviour from the fans who supposedly worshipped him less than two years earlier.

It’s a pity he couldn’t walk out himself when we went two-nil down. I guess the walkout by several hundred was a protest against GW, and it would have been ironic if he had beaten them out of the door. Mind you, in reality he probably had.

What a load of crap being spouted on some message boards now, begging for Parky to return. They’ll be asking for Kevin Keegan next. It seems the disloyal following would be happy to accommodate a disloyal manager. Maybe we should try to re-sign Doogie and all the rest who abandoned us in the last year or so. While we’re at it let’s go back to Layer Road and rebuild a new stadium on the site of past memories. Give it up – we’ve moved on.

I hope the mindless idiots who called for his head so vociferously will be sleeping soundly now that they have their way. It’s the players that need to be sorted out. I’d put money on a few moving on under new management. I get the feeling even GW’s hands were tied on that score.

I wish GW all the best in his future career. He’s a top bloke and deserves success in the game. Our loss, someone else’s gain. Farewell to a Gentleman.
