Farewell, O'Neill

By mrswoolybill
I came across this sad lament just hours after reading of Sunderland's dismissal of their manager Martin O'Neill. It seemed rather fitting. The football fan's lot has always been a painful one.
This was taken yesterday while wedged into a corner in a fish & chip shop queue. I wonder where?
Before anyone complains that this is soft, that's the document's fault. About an hour's work has gone into making this more or less legible.
I love the typos it didn't even get its full title!
Thanks for looking,

Martin ONeill is a good man and a good manager methinks the club will regret the move Grin

Very appropriate! I think they will regret the move too.

Given the announcement as to O'Neill's replacement, that is to be hoped...
Cheers everyone, I shall now revert to my usual total disregard for sport.

What a super find on the right time, and so interesting as a document and so lovely as a poem. Very well taken shot and well worth the effort.

An enjoyable view and read Moira. I hope you feel as sad when the Gunners lose THEIR Manager. Smile

I should explain that I have no interest in football, but it's a vital part of community life up here and the news, plus the news of O'Neill's replacement has left a lot of people in shock.
Cheers everyone,
