Is this man Arsene Wenger’s successor?

89 comments December 12th, 2006

Probably not. But still, you can’t help but have fond memories of Steve Morrow, particularly when you hear he’s just been appointed head coach of some football “soccer” team. Kansas, or Oz, or something… Dallas, that’s it. Who shot J.R.? I don’t know, and I doubt Steve does either. Look at him there, all professorial. Good luck, Steve: we too are “thrilled, honored and immensely proud”. While we’re on the subject of football “soccer”, does this transfer signal the end of the possibly the most over-hyped youngster of all time (and in a world where Sonny Pike exists existed, that’s saying something).

So no new Wenger, but perhaps a new Ian Wright? Certainly none of our strikers since then have shown this deadly combination of selfishness and arrogance. And don’t think for a second I’m suggesting that those are negative qualities: in a goalscorer, they’re vital.

And finally today, a pair of unlikely friends; Jens Lehmann and Didier Drogba:

“Drogba didn’t insult me in comparison to his team-mates and I can’t complain with him. Some of his team-mates insulted me terribly, but Drogba never does that, so I have no problem with him. Lampard is a specialist in insulting people very badly, but Drogba doesn’t say a word. He is a nice guy, he doesn’t insult people. Nothing happened with him. I like him. I think the handshake between us says it all.”

Bizarre. Perhaps when they were rolling around on the floor on Sunday, they were just playing. Like puppies, or something.

Tomorrow’s update should be choc-full of team-news for Wigan on Wednesday.
