funny story unless you are a Wolves fan .


Recommended Posts

As I've mentioned many times on here I love the Marx Brothers comedy from the 1930's , in fact it's possibly the only American comedy I find funny .

Much to my pleasure there is a latest production of one of their films brought up to date .

A famous football club is rescued from the doldrums by a large Chinese company . They hire a  lovely Portugese man by the name of Nuno . They gain promotion to the Premiership  and qualify for Europe . They finish 7th in the league and lose in the semi final of the F.A.  cup and the Europa cup . They then engage 2 clowns to oversee the running of the club . One of them has no idea about football . They sack the manager  and hire another Portugese  manager  . Results are abysmal so he takes drastic action , he criticises  one of the young players publicly  ruining the lads confidence . The club then buy a teenager with very little experience from abroad for several million pounds . He turns out to be a flop  , but could get better with age . The team struggle to score goals so they buy a tall striker with a poor injury record  who plays for 20 mins on his debut and is now rule out for the season . On the plus side they have a very good defence with  a good record in conceding very few goals . So they decide to sell  1. an England international   who is a great motivator , 2 a Moroccan international defender  , 3 A French international defender  4 A Belgian international  who is a good makeshift centre half and midfielder . Almost the entire defence sold for a pittance . They buy a young defender who is then banned for 3 games as the result of a bad tackle . In order to make up the defence in his absence they play one of the best midfielders in the world as a makeshift centre half . They also pay several millions on 2 midfielders  recommended by an agent  whose company is part owned by the Chenese owners of the club . In fact most of their players  are bought via the agent . The 2 players in question are very poor  and are not up to Premiership standard . The club sack the manager  but can't find a replacement  . They pin their hopes on a man called Beale who is the current Q.P.R.  manager  , to the man's credit he turns the club down because  Q.P.R.  have put a lot of faith in him and he doesnt want to let them down .

What a shambles but sadly it's not unique in the league that puts money before everything else .

Seems like a possibility that QPR will be replacing Wolves in the Premier League next season.

On another note, if the 'R's go up (will be great to see Loftus Road hosting top flight matches again. Proper old ground, always enjoy a stadium surrounded by houses as well), then it will be noticeable how the Prem is increasingly moving south. Could possibly have 8 clubs from London, plus 3 from the south coast (Bournemouth, Brighton and Southampton).
