Ex-footballer turned movie star Vinnie Jones has today revealed that if the offer became available he would quit Hollywood and return to Elland Road to manage Leeds United.

Vinnie had a football career with many clubs, including Leeds United when they won the league in 1991/2. He had a fiery reputation and was shown more than his fair share of cards. According to reports Vinnie once brandished a shotgun to then manager Howard Wilkinson after a disagreement.

Vinnie’s a Leeds fan!

I really can’t see Vinnie becoming manager, if however he was appointed I can see positives and negatives.

Positives being he would take no shit. Lazy players like Michael Duberry would really know about it if they didn’t pull their weight. Vinnie also loves Leeds and would have a lot of passion.

Negatives and there are a few, I think his temperament easily get the better if him. I would worry that he may go too far with some players and physically hurt them or even threaten them with weapons (maybe)! I’m sure he wouldn’t control himself on the touchline either – he would probably get a lot of bans and spend more time in the stands than the ever injured Seth Johnson.

Still, can’t see it happening but makes an interesting story.

It’s FA Cup Fourth Round this weekend. Leeds may be out but that’s not to mean I can’t enjoy some of the games. Chelsea v Birmingham, Man Utd v Middlesbrough, Oldham v Bolton and most interestingly Southampton v Portsmouth are all on telly.

Hopefully all the underdogs will win and Chelsea and Man Utd will be knocked out. I also hope that Newcastle United lose to Coventry. Newcastle have 3 real twats in their team. Manager Graham Souness representing Scotland in the twat awards, Craig Bellamy representing Wales and Alan Shearer representing England. The Twats of Britain.

More importantly to me though is the Leeds game against Brighton. This really is a must win game. The league is so open at the moment that a win could move Leeds to within 5 points off the playoffs in 10th place while defeat could put them as low as 17th and within 8 points off the relegation zone (should the other teams down there win). Strange league huh?

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
