Abbott cross; Carlisle cut and run; Kosich curiousity
A couple of things have caught my eye
Last weekend it was a little frustrating
waiting to get some quotes from Carlisle
manager Greg Abbott.
It quickly became clear he and his squad
had done what United’s fans proved wasn’t really necessary – jumped on the
nearest transport and legged it.
Not great when you need to hear their manager's take
on what was a very good performance from the visitors.
He has had a fair amount of stick this
season, Abbott, and I STUMBLED ACROSS THIS – as well as a
few other thoughts.
What he says about messageboard criticism
is an interesting point – it happens at Brunton Park,
it happens here a lot too.
At the same time it has changed transfer
speculation and how it’s reported, as well as playing its part in the ever
increasing pressure on a football manager and his players.
Another thing that interested me was the
collapse of Sheffield Wednesday’s proposed takeover by Club 9 Sports – a deal much vaunted and
involving a certain Joe Kosich, who you may remember was the American merchant
banker I spoke to earlier in the season.
You know, stars and stripes over Carrow Road et cetera.
It appears Sheffield Wednesday’s relegation LEFT THE CONSORTIUM RE-EVALUATING THEIR LEVEL OF INVESTMENT.
Obviously it is my job to report what
people say, want to do, their aims and intentions.
But such events at Hillsborough make interesting reading given the originally hostile reaction from David McNally and the City
board to Kosich’s comments over Norwich.
And that is without mentioning the American's later behaviour on the supporters’
