A Historic Day Continues

A historic 24 hours in the world of Fantrax. For the first time ever a team has decided to change their manager. The enigmatic Ian Fisher  is on the verge of stepping down to pave way for young Matthew Devereux-Cole to embark on what promises to be a fruitful management career. And now that Devereux-Cole’s appointment is out in the open, Boz’s Pandas press team have the opportunity to announce to the world their very own managerial addition.

The Pandas have been looking for an assistant manager for the past 63 weeks, yet there were few candidates worth taking on. However, with Talling’s XI now winning every game, this has kickfired the Pandas into bolstering their management team in the hope of chasing down Meredith et al.

Interest in the role was high. Candidates for the job included the likes of Stacey Matthews, Garth and Mark Henry, but eventually the Panda’s hierarchy settled on the self-proclaimed King of Biggleswade………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..Francis Booker.

A recording from Booker’s interview can be heard below. It’s easy to see why the Pandas wanted Booker on board.

Booker being assistant manager provides a few headaches for Borrill. Current disputes that need to be reconciled include:

  • Booker’s underlying hatred for Jason Puncheon
  • Booker’s underlying hatred for all things Crystal Palace
  • Booker’s deep rooted love for Darren Fletcher
  • Booker’s constant tantrums
  • Booker’s strange adoration of Victor Anichebe
  • Booker’s odd fascination with inanimate objects (e.g. coathangers)
  • Booker’s complete lack of knowledge of Fantrax.

Needless to say, whether this turns out to be a good appointment will depend on if Borrill and Booker can come to an agreement on issues such as these.

Booker is reportedly extremly unhappy with some of the training techniques currently employed by the Pandas

Booker’s first press conference also ended bizarrely when following a question on whether Diego Costa was likely to move to China he simply got up and shouted “Sausage, I dunno” before nonchalantly striding out the media room. Borrill has already booked in Francis to extended media training sessions to ensure such oddities don’t happen again.

Rumours of whether Booker is using the role as a stepping-stone for greater things in the future have been played down by Borrill

The Pandas play The Hammerheads next week and Borrill will be hoping that Booker’s knowledge can help secure 3 points over their fellow lucky high-flying rivals.
