I heard a funny story today whilst in work, which will make some people realise that Bill Kenwright is not all bad.
The guy I was working with today was a Mansfield supporter and he told me that their chairman, in his wisdom, has decided that the name 'Mansfield' does not hold enough appeal to the masses. The chairman has then ? and this is not a word of a lie ? proposed that the team change their name to 'Harchester Rovers'!!! For those who don't know, this is the fictional team that is featured on Sky One's football soap opera, Dream Team. Now I've heard everything!

quote from the 2006 AGM
"We won?t get to know anything, or be able to change anything until next year. I stood here last year, Bill, or was it the year before, and I got accused of calling you liars. I didn?t call you a liar; I said I haven?t got much faith in you because every time you promise you don?t deliver. We had a fella here from Billy Smart?s circus the other year, who was introduced as the saving grace of Everton Football Club. Never to be heard of again. Took his two hundred and fifty large ones and got off. He?s gone. No one?s heard of him. No one?s heard of his mates that he was bringing on board to save the Club. It was exactly the same as what?s going on tonight. We?ve got a new ground. We?re going in with Tesco. Don?t worry. It?s all going to be great. It?s different now, Bill, because not a lot of people, not many people are behind this the way we were with the King?s Dock because it?s the boy who cried wolf with you, Bill. And you don?t deliver and I?m sorry but I?ve got no faith in you.?
Mr Kenwright?s response? ?Thank you, Frank.?

It is all a bit too ridiculous, predictable and boring for words.
