Roger Johnson- Captain Fantastic

Roger Johnson- Captain Fantastic

Terry Connor likes to ride his bike in the morning unless it's too cold, Richard Stearman is under the illusion the team still has spirit, the discarded Adam Hammill has declared his enjoyment of life a week after joining Boro and now it turns out our captain decides the best way to respond to a five goal thumping is to turn up to the next training session drunk. Why not eh? It just keeps getting better.

At least the fall out from this led the Johnson to admit "My conduct and approach to training on Monday was below the high standard the club rightly needs and demands from me - and what I demand from myself.'

I would say that extends beyond the Monday. It would more accurately reflect his season and he is not alone.

He says he has apologized to 'the manager, my team-mates and the club." Would one assume that extends to the fans who bought the bottle for him?

During our fruitless search for a new manager (we still don't have one) I suggested Kevin Keegan in a party hat with Gazza pacing the dug out swigging from a bottle of vodka.

There is still time if the club moves quickly because circus tickets are expensive these days and we need to ensure we get enough bodies through the door to balance that lop sided stadium.

I shall be up bright and early to watch the game and promise I will be drunk within two hours.

Grabs Wolves scarf, slumps against the wall... 'it's been emotional aye.'

Most companies have it written in the contract that turn up *****ed or drugged up and they can fire you. Probably the same, but come on eh, be a proper waste of money- we could stick a 14 million pound price tag on his barnet in the event of relegation. Oh hang on, that did not work. Leave him captain. One nice thing from the press today, young Davis saying he is happy to give up a trip to Wembley with whichever team he has been on loan to is because Wolves is his club. Thought that was a good un that. He says if he okays he wont be fazed and why should he against the back drop of ***** most likely alongside him, the worst he can do is look equally as bad, and we shalt forgive the youth. apparently after 59 years at the club Terry has radically changed the training routine in the hope of avoiding another five goal thumping. I would pay large sums of money to watch these training sessions. 8 years ago I registered Manhattan Wolves in some summer 8 a side league. Bunch of Rogers from down the pub and we won the 11 game league at a canter. Our first training session we didnt even use a ball. Evolutionary tactician, trophy to boot. Now that is a tactical revolution my friends. Ah time for a snooze.

Hold on, hold on! Isn't this the very same RJ who (according to the experts) was a very talented defender that had 'obviously' been ruined as a player by the coaching of MM and TC? And yet now he's a useless, drunken trouble maker? Ho hum.

Well, I would be grateful if he would play hookey, allowing us to select someone else in his place. But fair play, he might be allergic to alcohol. I know I am: I feel sick, get a headache and fall over.
