Wolves win well worth a wine stop

From Neil Warnock's newspaper column:

We got a great result at Wolves last weekend, winning 3-0, and as I settled back on the bus for the long journey home I thought "I'd really like a glass of wine". So I said to the driver, "Pull up at the first place I can get a bottle of red."

Within a few miles he said, "There's a Tesco Metro, will that do gaffer?" It did. I turned to Matty Lawrence, our centre-half, and said, "Anybody want a lager?" He replied, "Yes please, gaffer." I told them I was paying but anyone that wanted a drink had to get off the coach and fetch it themselves. Ten players followed me.

We got a trolley and trooped around putting in wine for the staff, lagers for most of the players, soft drinks and Crunchies for the young lads, our 16- and 17-year-olds. It took me back to Sunday League days.

There were Wolves fans asking for our autographs and when we got to the checkout desk the cashier said, "Can I have a photo with you, I never thought I'd ever meet you." I said, "See, I'm not as bad as you've heard." I said to the lads, "I've not done that since I was at Notts County, 20 years ago."

It did feel good, but I can't imagine that many teams will be seen pulling up at Tesco's for a drink.

Re: Wolves win
I haven't played Chamionship Manager for years, but I pissed away an inordinate amount of time some years back managing virtual Arsenal to the League - Cup - Champions League triple. The funniest thing about CM was the way some players had been given really high scores but never made it big in the real world. My Champions League forward line-up included Nicky Forster (!) and a Ukrainian called Viktor Leonenko, who last time I heard had been sacked by Dynamo Kiev for being too fat and drinking too much. A perfect player for pre-Wenger Arsenal, then. I bought Kevin Davies, too. He was rubbish.

There was also a bug in the database which meant there were two Aaron Hugheses, one of them playing for me and one for Newcastle. I toyed with the idea of buying the other one just for a laugh, so that I'd have two identical players with the same name...
