St Partick's Day greetings to all FC Bury fans! I know Arne has been quiet this few weeks but I have been keeping my ear, how you say, close to the grass
I am still receiving occasional reports from Bogie, my man-in-the-reserves. He is telephoning me last night, all excited, but the telephone line is poor and the noise in my Ferrari is sometimes a little loud. But he says FC Bury got a great result yesterday at Giggland against FC Manse Field
He said something about a Trudy Goodwin. I am looking this up on the internet and discover she plays the lady sergeant in The Bill, which is being very popular here in Scandinavia? Is she an FC Bury celebrity, like Mike Reed from Eastenders, and Ralf Little Britain from that funny comedy show on BBC3?
I am pleased to hear the boy Sedoni is banging them up, as you British fans like to say. And Bogie is telling me about this young fellow David Nugget who plays alongside Sedoni. Bogie says he is "a gem" and "a rough diamond" Let us hope he is not the Fools Gold, eh?
I am asking Bogie to explain the reason for FC Bury's general improvement and he is telling me it is all down to a new coach that Mr Barrows brought in after losing his first 4 games. Apparently this fellow is an Irish goalkeeping coach from FC Prestwich. He has a very Irish sounding name, I didn't catch it clearly, but I think Bogie said it was Gallon O'Heineken or something like that. Anyway, well done Mr Barrows and Mr Gallon! And although you know how much I dislike nepotism I am still pleased to hear how well the Manager's son Matty Barrows is performing for his father's team
Maybe The Consortium will get a chance to see FC Bury in action on Saturday. Abram and I have a few horses running at Cheltenham, along with our old Irish pals John and JP. I don't think Alex will be joining us this year! Slainte!!
