musings about the emerging church, mission and contemporary culture...

God is at large, intimately involved in his world in ways that the church is maybe just waking up to!

he's not the only one...

Ollie Sickened By Defeat... he's not the only one I can tell you! So who's to blame?... where do I begin?!

  1. Ollie, though a nice bloke, has not exactly set the world alight since his move to Leicester has he? OK, so we were in trouble when he arrived, but it got worse. As he himself said in the Guardian, "Statistically, I'm the worst Leicester City manager in history". Still, I'm not convinced he should go and the blame is not all at his feet...
  2. The players - they may well have been crying in the dressing room at the end of today's match; shame they didn't show the same passion on the pitch week in week out. With the exception of three or four (Hume, Stearman, McAuley, Kisnorbo) all those 'players of promise' simply haven't been up to it. I bet the big guns who haven't performed will be the first to ask for transfers now - good riddance to them I say. Time for another clear out at the Walkers Stadium.
  3. Milan Mandaric - unfortunately we need his cash but any chairman who meddles in footballing affairs as much as he does is bound to be a problem. Sacking Martin Allen because the manager didn't want to bring in Hasselbaink and MM did was a scandal - why has he employed a manager if he won't let him manage. I guess this is all a bit academic as I reckon MM will be off now (sadly with his money) anyway. When he came to the club two years ago he said Leicester would be in the Premiership in three seasons or he would have failed, and that he doesn't fail... err, I've got news for you Milan!
All in all, a dreadful day in the life of a Leicester supporter - in fact, the worst ever. The promotion of Forest yesterday makes it all so much harder to swallow. At least Derby suffered the drop too. Still, humble pie time... we're a league below them both now. Time to go and weep into a pint!

Sobbing in another clergy household tonight - have to say it was not a surprise!

What a fantastic weekend of football!! I blame Martin O'Neil, he set your expectation levels too high, kinda like Cloughie did with us (we're never gonna be double Eiropean champions again). Btw Div 1 is grim...sorry but as a Forest fan this is my first opportunity to gloat for about 10 years...
