'If It's Football, It's Vital'

@VillasHerc in the Dressing Room At Season's End

*We join the lads unhappy with a poor result and worse season*

Albrighton: Well. It could have been worse. At least we got through the season.

Bannan: Um.....Well most of us did.

*Bannan pokes a motionless Darren Bent who is lying in the middle of the dressing room with a stick, flies are buzzing around him*

Bannan: Poor guy, died of boredom.

Bent: What I'm not dead! ... Just bored!

Albrighton: ... and the flies?

Bent: I'm top-tailing with Emile, he's stinking up the place as usual.

*Heskey is still snoring and talking to himself in his sleep*

Heskey: 'and it's Heskey.... Heskey... HESKEY!!!! Oh. It's gone for a throw'.



Heskey pops to a sitting position, snorts and stretches*

Heskey: Oh hi guys. I was just having a wonderful dream where I was scoring loads of goals. They were definitely all going in.

*the lads are looking at Heskey with scepticism.*

Heskey: What? They were. Every shot.

McLeish: Well lads, next season we'll definitely do better eh? Not tha' this season went that badly of course.

*the dressing room erupts with laughter*

McLeish: What? What is funny? Like I said, next season we ...

*the lads erupt with laughter again*

McLeish: What? Are some of yez leaving or somethin'? I mean Carlos and Emile I know but... Is there some mass exodus?

Ireland: Oh no boss, we're not going anywhere?

*McLeish gasps with horror*

McLeish: You think I am going to be sacked!? I think not. Who steered us out of relegation!?

Albrighton: ... The Baggies?

McLeish: What!? No ... Me. Alex McLeish. It's my second ever highest Premier League finish, they'll be dancing on the streets of Aston!

Ireland: Not just yet they won't....

Mcleish: There's no reason to sack me, they'll back me! Back me I tell you.

Ireland: Aye, back you off a cliff, in a SACK!

*the dressing room erupts with laughter*

Gabby: To be fair boss you are the worst manager since 1890-91 where we also only had 7 wins but that was in a 12 team league so .....

McLeish: 12 teams!? Barely gives you the opportunity to draw enough to make up for your losses does it? Look lads, anyone worried that I'm getting sacked needn't worry.

Hutton: Oh thank God!

*the lads all turn to stare at Hutton*

McLeish: I'm unsackable, totally unsackable.

*Faulkner knocks the door enters and hands McLeish a letter*

McLeish: 'Dear Lex, Please see me in my office on Monday wearing the attire provided for you by Mr.Falconboy'

*McLeish looks at Faulkner who holds out a rope potato sack, McLeish takes the sack flaps it out and reads the text printed on it*

McLeish: 'I've just been 'SACKED' by Randy Lerner!'?

*McLeish looks at Faulkner who shrugs*

Faulkner: American humour.

McLeish: Oh, a joke? So I don`t have to wear this and I`m not sacked.

*McLeish looks at Faulkner hopefully holding the sack back toward him. Faulkner maintains a stern look pushing McLeish`s hand with the sack back to his chest, turns and leaves. Ireland gives McLeish an 'I told you so' look*

It's a bit weird reading this and not needing it to bring me out of despair

ROFL.... love the ref to Heskers giving away more throw-ins than actually threatening the goalie! With Heskey gone and McDraw sacked, will there be opportunities for humour? I believe Hercs will find something to pick up on ;) Thanks m8

I think next years vain of humor will be Babies/Kids - lots of rattles and nappies being changed.

Well done again mate. I have found these harder to read as the season went on, and on, Some light at the end of the tunnel. I currently have a permanent smile that makes me look like I'm insane. UTV!

I was at least expecting a good bye for Carlos in his Scottish accent. Maybe Herd and Delph in the hall of maim getting ready for Alex should he not be sacked. Collins looking dozy behind them as back up!!
