On one of my frequent visits to the football pages of BBC Online, I came across this article about ex-Leeds manager Kevin Blackwell. What a load of egotistical bollocks. Here are some excerpts…

“I have reached four semi-finals and two finals in the last four years so I must be doing something right.”
– That would be two play-off semis and finals, both as Leeds boss and Neil Warnock’s lapdog at Sheffield United. Oh, and let’s not forget the FA Cup semi back in 2002, something you HELPED with. Well done.

“I have not wasted my time away,”
– That’s up for debate. Every time I turn on Sky, he’s a pundit for Football League games. Last week it was the Birmingham-Stoke game. Whenever his fellow-presenter mentioned any Birmingham player of quality, Blackwell would pipe up “I tried to sign him for Leeds”. Blah blah blah.

“I am one of the most qualified coaches in Europe…”
– Proof that football qualifications are meaningless.

“…but I still think you have got to try to learn more.”
– Like getting the “Job Done” when you reach important finals.

“It is difficult to know which way to go. I am proven as a coach and I have shown I can manage.”
– I hear there may be a vacant managerial post at both Chelsea and Barcelona in the summer, why not go there? Failing that, hold out for the inevitable sacking of Steve McClaren and take the England job – if you’re as good as you make out, I’m sure you’ll do wonders.


Take a look at this picture.
It would be so easy to go with the “Me and Gary Kelly” joke.
I’m not going to. Instead…

“Gary Kelly meets local idiot”

In all honesty, I don’t have anything against Kevin Blackwell. I am grateful for what he did for Leeds, even if he did talk bollocks sometime. Good luck in your job hunt, Blackie!

  • About Me

    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.
