The lemon sucked on by Steve Coppell

Following the departure of their former manager, Steve Coppell, Reading Football club made a surprise announcement on their website today. Apparently, they have signed Morrisey, the high pitched, daffodil waving superstar from the 80's to be their new manager.

A spokesperson for the club stated yesterday'The key to success in football is consistency.

Therefore, it makes perfect sense to replace one miserable, downtrodden manager with another'.

After pausing to eat a Pukka pie, he continued; 'We believe he can bring a new level of motivation to our palyers and supporters. After all Morrisey once said You stand on your own, you leave on your own, you go home, you cry and you want to die.'

'That sums it up for me after the play-offs' the track-suited spokesperson said before ordering another pie.
