Saw this on WLS about Saman Ghoddos. Can't recall any great buzz around the player from earlier in the season. GetWestLondon, TalkSpurt and HITC seem to be the main sources, so probably bollox regurgitated from the Twittersphere masquerading as news.
Venue: Dog & Handgun Public House, snug Agenda: Awarding Strike To Mr I Holloway, AOB Apologies: Big Vern (18 months); Bermondsey Dave (lying low, presumed Costa Brava) Chair: Frankie 'Ironfist' O'Toole
The chair recognised committee member Maureen Pennis-Elbow who proposed awarding a strike to Mr I Holloway of QPR in response to the team selection and performance. Ray Jinghorn wanted his joke about 'awarding him a striker being a better idea, eh, eh?' noted in the minutes (agreed). The floor was opened to debate. Ron Scranus felt that the strike should be suspended in order to provide motivation for the manager. Cassandra Fuque-Tarde proposed that the strike be delivered but that it should be accompanied by an hour of shouting 'Cuuuuuuuuuunt!' at Mr Holloway in the next game if QPR weren't at least four goals up by half time. Reggie 'The Face' Barse felt that the strike needed to have maximum impact and proposed attaching it to the front of his car and driving across the training pitch into Mr Holloway. It was further suggested that a copy be attached to the rear bumper so a similar effect be attained by reversing over him. Mr Barse was very passionate about the idea and needed to be resuscitated after bursting several veins his temple. Our thoughts are with his family at this time.
After being put to the vote, the strike was unanimously passed and it was delivered to Loftus Road in person by the secretary Alvin Felcher.
Mr Holloway's response was as follows: 'What the fcuk is this?'
No agenda here, I'm genuinely interested. With the current personnel issues at the back, have the U23s got the chops to step up? Furlong and Manning have made the jump and seem to be developing well. I don't know whether Lynch will be ready for Burton - is it time for one of the U23s or do we stick with Furlong, Jon-da and Robinson?
