The toughest job in football?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Required – Mr Fixit
Priority – to retain Football League status
The County board confirms
“Not even Conference teams rate us!”

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 With a dodgy back four
And a slew of scoreless strikers
They’d nearly do better
With the Hairy Bikers!

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Even the old dog and bone
Is silent and broken
Unlike the disgruntled
For the supporters have spoken

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 There can be no guarantees
But all hopes now pinned on Ray
Can he work the miracle
To keep relegation at bay?

Tuesday 15th March 2011:
News item –

Ray Mathias, the new manager of League Two strugglers Stockport County, admits he has taken “the toughest job in football” – and that even the telephone in his office is broken.


Postscript:

Did he achieve his goal?

Alas no.

And Stockport County started season 2011/2012 with Dietmar Hamann at the helm.
