Terry the kitman’s unique welcome for new signing..

In what’s thought to be a slight case of fat-fingers by somebody sending him a text message, Terry took some time out of his increasingly busy schedule to take in the latest news that Forest had made a new signing.  Imagine his shock when he thought his kit repertoire was about to include feather boas, fur coats and everything else susceptible to make-up stains!

After realising his error he was simply heard to mutter ‘Thank f**k for that!’

Doughty to abandon Agent Clough in the field?..

Worrying times for Nigel Doughty, as his lead agent Nigel ‘non-League’ Clough appears to be getting a little too into his role as the would-be manager of Derby County. His mission is to replace Derby’s squad with over-rated lower league and non-league playing staff whilst delivering a disappointing league finish.

There had been concerns that the agent-lead initiative to drive a series of off-the-field infractions to damage Derby County’s standing with the Football League was welcomed initially by the Forest chairman.  But the latest charge met by the band of thugs that Clough has assembled leaves Doughty concerned that the mission might well be compromised – as his agent’s efforts become more and more transparent to the onlooker.

His options are to leave his field agent to operate ‘rogue’ without further support or guidance, or to recall him from the front line.  Advisors are thought to have suggested that he sever all contact with Agent Clough who appears to have become so engrossed in his role as Derby County’s manager that he can no longer separate his mission from reality.

Are they making it too obvious?

A New Year greeting from Billy Davies..

Anyone else noticed Billy’s repeated insistence that League Tables are meaningless before January?  Well it’s January now!  A very happy new year to you all, and of course most definitely to Billy and the boys – keep up the sterling work! You Reds!

Notts County appoint a new media spokeman after fresh crisis..

After the collapse of the Munto Finance deal and Peter Trembling’s management buy-out, the League Two club is as newsworthy as ever with rumours of impending financial meltdown.  To handle the increasing media interest on the dodgy dealings happening at Meadow Lane the Magpies new owner has appointed a man experienced in dealing with a demanding pack of journalists in difficult circumstances.

New spokesman Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf said in a brief statement: “Our initial assessment is that we are on track for three successive promotions.  Upon reaching the Premier League we will mount an assault on Europe, Sven will oversee the march and we will be victorious.  Rumours that we have no money and that the all-powerful Trembling is nothing but a cheap fraudster are not worth an old shoe.  We shall prevail.  That is all.”

McGugan celebration inspired by the West End..

I’m sure Mr Lloyd Webber would be disgusted with my crass re-rendering of one of his more famous musicals, but it made me chuckle so there!

It’s raining t-shirts in Derby..

Hallelujah it’s raining t-shirts.. tacky gimmicks like this (and the sheep masks before them) rarely ever turn out to be a good idea in my experience.  In case you weren’t in Pride Park for the downpour, there’s a few popping up on eBay!

Having been busy whilst the game was on, I might just have to fire up iPlayer and watch it again, just to watch this look gradually being wiped off a certain someone’s face:
