“Morning Roy, come in sit down, oh you are!”

“You wanted a word Steve?”

“Yes, we’ll, what a mess eh. Things are not looking good n I’m
under pressure from the others to make some big decisions”. I
guess they saw the banners....Oh, thanks, I love a Werther” Mmm,
where was I? Oh yes..."

“Sorry to interrupt Steven, but you don’t want to take any notice
of a few whingers, they’ll get over it when we thump the Blades.
Anyway, they’ve been spoilt up to now”.

“Let’s hope so old friend. You know we go back a long way, well
you do at least. Me on the muddy Whitehorse end n you an
apprentice, but the Yanks are getting twitchy and want some
answers”.

“Answers, I’ll give ’em Answers. What do the ‘septics’ know
about’ football, or rather soccer anyway”.

"You have a point there Mr H , but I’ve got to be frank with you,
there’s no money for transfers right now, and with relegation
staring us in the face and an old buffer in charge, who’d want
to come here anyway?. We might get the odd loan if Dougie gets
his digit out of his rear end, but as it stands, the best peas,
Kalvin Phillips that is, seem to have gone to Farrows, err, I
mean Hammers. Hah, did you get that Roy?"

“Yes, very amusing Steve but it’s not a problem, I think we have
a decent enough squad to survive”.

"Oh, and another thing, Brighty ask me to ask you why you insist
on sticking with the old tossers and don’t give the youngsters a
run out?”

“Huh, I wondered when he’d put his tuppence in. Tell him to mind
his own business, I’m in charge, and anyway, Ray n Mac makes
those decisions, I’d certainly give the kids a few minutes”. Was
there anything else Stevie boy only I need to get over to the
training ground to work on set pieces?

“Well I was wondering what you are up to next season…, no reason,
just asking”.

“You’d have to ask Mrs H that one, she makes my decisions, but
she won’t want me hanging around like a bad smell, so who knows.
Talking of smells, was that you?.. Another Werther?”

“Cheers, I’ll take one for later. Let’s catch up again next
Wednesday then”.

"I'll put it in my diary Steven. nice to chat

Roy has on previous occasions upped sticks and walked before being sacked. ‘By mutual agreement’ is the term used. There is the possibility that, following a win against Sheffield, Roy will leave, going out on a high to cement his legacy.

However, given he appears to have no other interests outside football, I suspect he will soldier on regardless.

The starting 11 against Sheff Utd includes 5 youngsters (under 21)
We are 0:3 down after 30 minutes, Roy & Ray pick up their remaining belongings and walk down the tunnel to an awaiting limo where they drive to a local hotel to watch the remainder of the game in the lounge.

As they nestle into the plush seats of the Limo, Roy texts SP - Thats what you can do with your constructive criticism -

See yah -

He should go regardless. Beating only Brentford and Sheff Utd in a 12 game run isn't good enough.

However, it is a massive game. We're five points clear and given that our relegation rivals have tough games (Forest vs. Arsenal, Luton vs. Brighton, City vs. Burnley, Spurs vs. Brentford), a win would almost certainly open up a nice gap again.

So you're probably right, if he wins then he'll probably be given a stay of execution.

If we loose he could be executed - immediately ! ```````````````````````````````````````````````

============================

‘Fly on the wall’
Wednesday 31st - Selhurst Park


“Hello Roy, how you are feeling this morning?”

“Morning Steve, well a bit numb to be frank. The arthritis is giving my gyp, n last night’s debacle. Wasn’t what I’d hope for”.

“No, nor me. A shame as at two up I thought you’d nailed it”.

“Yes, me too, but it seems my talk on set pieces didn’t sink in, least not the bit about attacking the ball. I didn’t mean with their hands, I mean once you could forgive, but twice! So, I guess a draw against that lot doesn’t cut the mustard. What does that mean anyway?”

“Don’t ask me Roy but the drift is that it wasn’t good enough to keep the Yanks off my case. Tosser, sorry Textor called me earlier, and confirmed what I’d feared and wants me to give you the heave ho, so I guess you know I don’t have any choice”.

“Well, you do - don’t you make the decision? Does he know I’m a CBE?”

“Not sure he even knows what that is, although he did mumble something about a Bygone Era, but having a gong doesn’t mean you keep you job I’m afraid. You could do a ‘Venells’ and hand it back”.

“Very amusing but that’s a bit strong Steve. But how are we going to dress this up for the media mob waiting in the car park?”

“Mutual consent and a load of cobblers about what a fantastic job you’ve done for the club, Roy”.

“That would be nice Steve, although I appreciate the usual, ‘I want to spend more time with the family’ bit, you know how that goes, although I doubt Mrs H will appreciate it”.

“Sure, no prob Roy. So, what are you going to do in you latest retirement?”

“Err well, I guess Mrs H will want a holiday and I going to write my biography, I’m going to call it, ‘Roy Ball, and How to Play Attacking Football’, what do you think?

“Mmm, not sure, but I’m sure your sell a few dozen”.

“Suppose I’d best get cracking and clear my desk then. Call round anytime for cuppa anytime”.

====

OR….


“Morning Roy, well you pulled that one out the bag eh. Even that old doubting Thomas Brighty had to concede he didn’t see that coming”.

“Yes, it was rather pleasing Steve, it’s not often you see a goal here, let alone six. I’ll be able to dine out on it for a week or two yet”.

Well, don’t get above yourself Roy, you’re forgetting the 4 they scored and its only one game, but it did prove that playing the kids is worth trying. That third, the Brazilian scored, was well, ˜Brazilliant !”

“Very funny Steve, but I always knew he’d come good. So does that mean I get to stay a while longer now?”

“Maybe, I’ll have a word upstairs and get back to you”.

“Oh, okay...here take this packet of Werthers n tell them they’re from me, it may tip the scales”.Zzzzzzz!


“Roy, ROY, wake up, its 6o'clock, you’ll be late for the team talk”.

“Oh blimey, thanks dear, I was dreaming”.

“Good luck honey ”.
