THE manager of Hairy Fadjeetas was left with some explaining to do after his side were battered by Real Threat in this weekend’s opening Narcozep Cup fixtures.
A Jamie Vardy slot was not enough and the Fadges were seen to clam up as Real thrust into the box over and over again until Jermaine Defoe and Manuel Lanzini both decisively drove it home.
Real midfielder Gerard Deulofeu beavered away to create two goals (the young Catalan was released by Cowley Casuals at last month’s transfer window in favour of Xedran Shaquiri, a signing yet to bear fruit).
Defeat is a huge gash in Fadges’ hopes of progressing to the knock out stage, and the honey pot at the end of a successful cup run.
There are murmurs at Bikini Lane should the manager not produce silverware this season he could face the axe. Wound up when confronted with rumours in the post-match interview, the manager of Fadges seeped with fluid vehemence.
“This kind of talk gets right up my chuff. It’s typical from fans. It’s such a fan-ny conclusion. They sit there eating their burgers and pies, and think they know how to run a top-flight football team.
“Where do people get the front? Bottom. That’s where this club would be if it wasn’t for me,” he said in one of the season’s most meaty flaps.
Shirt sponsors Volkswagen Group could pull their backing if results don’t improve.
“We’re still chewing it over,” said a VAG spokesperson.
Supporters groups have been highly critical of the manager’s outburst.
“He can’t go on attacking the fans this way and while the team’s form is so poor and results aren’t coming in, especially if financial backing is at stake,” said Poachers Glovebox, secretary of fans’ outfit Vagitarians.
“I can only see one outcome if he keeps up this sort of beef: curtains.”
