Spraying the Rays

The Alternative Radiographer

31 October 2006


This blog may have previously given the impression that it believed chat show host and professional Yorkshireman Michael "Phil" Parkinson (he's from Barnsley you know) to be a disaster as manager of Hull City AFC and that the only sensible course of action would be to remove him without further delay. With the team rooted at the bottom of the Championship, his erratic team selection and habit of playing men out of position seemed to have no logic, and surely his previous success at Colchester United must now be attributed to the talent of his assistant manager who replaced Parkinson at his former club, especially bearing in mind the relative positions of the two clubs at the moment.

However following tonight's glorious 3-2 victory against Southend United, during which the Tigers came from behind twice despite having their captain sent off, it is clear that Mr Parkinson is a footballing genius with a vision to match that of Wenger, Busby and Shankly rolled into one. As Hull City march relentlessly up the table towards Premiership status we must fall to our knees giving thanks while clubs currently in the top flight quake in fear as they await our inevitable arrival. It is surely only a matter of time before Parky is offered the England job only to turn it down, citing unfinished business at Hull's Circle stadium as the reason.

Next week: as City crash to an embarrassing 2-0 defeat at Southampton, Spraying the Rays says "PARKY OUT!"

How about another new celebrity reality TV show?

"Championship Bollock Swap".

Parky and Tayls go under the knife live on telly in a nail-biting testes transformation operation, in an experiment to see wether they have got what it takes to fight a relegation battle.

How about celbrity lobotomy?
Sell the brains on e-bay, and find out what they're worth on the open market, publish the results, burn everybody and learn to read.

Looks like you've already had one.

I only wandered over here from the chez La Belle Trac because I was mystified as to who would call themselves YLM746X. Only to find that you don't.

Then I got all excited cos I thought you spoke football. But then I go to the comments and there is nothing about football at all. Bollocks!

Anyway, we slaughtered City (well, I think it was 2-1 but can't be bothered to check) but then again we have the ghost of Tom Finney on side.

Will go now though cos the comments here are making me feel a bit ill.

No! Come back Tess! I can explain!

Now look what you two have done, Istvanski and Howesy. You've frightened off a reader. Thanks a bunch. I'm going to come round your blogs and leave some scary comments, see how you like it.

Your profile pic should do it really!!

It takes more than bollocks and lobotomies to frighten me off. Like The Terminator, I'll be back.

How could you have celebrity lobotomy? They don't have brains do they?

I've come here to talk footie. 3-0 today against Luton. 1 point off the top of the table. Unbeaten at home in 27 games since Sept 05. What a team eh!?

How did you get on today?

A point! A point! A point away at Southampton! I'll settle for that.

Admittedly your lot do seem to be doing a bit better. I wouldn't be upset to see Preston in the top flight. I think it's about time Hull had a crack at it...looks like we'll have to wait.

Yeah, cool re your point. But no, you're not doing too well. Would be nice if you could edge out of the relegation zone really. BUT we've been in the play-offs so often and never gone up. You'll probably whizz past us at the last minute and be off to the top flight.
