Keegan's Walked - Now Join Me...

Recommended Posts

Kevin Keegan has resigned - that piece of news is not the point of this thread however. The point of this tread is to entice other fans to apply for the now vacant position.

Me and my mate have printed CV''s off and I''ve written a perfectly worded cover letter which should be winging its way to the Eastlands of Manchester [the poor side of Manchester btw]. Wouldn''t it be hilarious if they had 30 applications and 29 of them were from people like us [I''m assuming Worthers and other managers don''t read postings on here] and the other was froma  Second Division hasbeen... Announcing that to the world would encapsulate what a hilarity Manchester City actually are. 

And why you as am I suggesting that we all apply..? Well if Big Joe Royal can work for Manchester City, what''s to say we can''t.

I''ll warn you all now, my application''s already in the post AND I live in Manchester so that''s two factors in my favour already, plus my mate is dead good at Championship Manager. But don''t be discouraged, I''m sure they''ll look at all the applications in a similar light... and despair..!?

If you ask nicely, I might put a copy of my cover letter up here for you to see what you''re up against.

Dear Mr Wood
Thank you for your enquiry.
Unfortunately we do not currently have an opening at the Club that would
be suitable for someone of your background and experience.
Please accept our best wishes for your future endeavours.
Yours sincerely
Jo Shevlin
