Cook and the Charge of the JCB brigade.

February 24, 2012

Not tho’ the soldier knew
Someone had blunder’d

(apologies to Tennyson)

The JCB cheerleaders have been digging a very large hole for themselves.
Can’t blame desperate fans for latching on to anything to deflect from the dire team performance and imminent relegation battle.
But why Cook has to drop them right in the middle of another legal minefield is beyond the pale.
Glorious failure seems to be this man’s mantra. Having thrown hundreds of thousands at a failed world cup bid, now like the retreat from Dunkirk combined with the
Charge of the Light Brigade, the blundering Deputy Leader has done a Mark Twain on the TVG JR, or as Twainy would have said:

The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

The TVG is alive and kicking it would appear.
And a red faced Cook and his cronies will have some questions to answer
when the top brass call them to account..

    Mr Spring, I think you’re getting your military metaphors in a muddle. Surely Dunkirk was a semblance of hope and victory clutched from the jaws of humiliating and total defeat?

    Dubya’s 2003 “mission accomplished” speech on the deck of the Abraham Lincoln seems a bit more Simon Cook.

    Meanwhile Ashton Vale is beginning to resemble Rorke’s Drift …

    Good point Mr BB.
    My thinking is The Dunkirk spirit was cleverly manipulated even though the army had been trounced and left all it’s weapons behind.
    Custers last stand?

    Custer’s last stand comes Wednesday when Cook and Holt’s ‘legal experts’ gather their wagons around at the High Court for their appeal.

    Scenes similar to Napoleon’s retreat from Moscow may then follow …
