The Headless Chickens manager was left choking on his Christmas leftovers this week as former striker Dimitar Berbatov racked up over double the score of Leon Best and Shane Long.
The Bulgarian hitman scored 23 points over Christmas, while the Chickens’ current front two got 11 between them.
Chickens occupy tenth spot going into the New Year. They would look poised to move up the table, but for a lack of goals: only eight have been scored by the whole side this term.
“I have every confidence in every department of my team to produce the goods, not just Leon and Shane,” squawked the Chickens boss, whose £9m midfielder Pedersen is currently playing at left back.
Vasco De Beauvoir’s awful run of form has landed them in the relegation zone for the first time since before their double-winning 2009/10 season.
“The fans are starting to restless but I’m sure we can answer our critics with results on the pitch,” said the Vasco De Beauvoir gaffer-OUT, while trying to tempt Craig Gardner down from his hiding place in a tree.
