Think it was more for the he general public. Nothing we haven't heard a 100 times. Not worth looking up tbh.
I wish him well, but haven't fully subscribed to the 'Saint Phil' stuff precisely because he's never once criticised Anderson, yet has been his apologist at times.

It'll be in his book, I telz ya. And there really is a book in Parkinson. Better / more interesting than Garry Nelson's, even.

Depends on how much he wants to say, and how good his ghost-writer is at getting it out of him. Like I say, Colin Todd’s book was soporific, both about the good times and bad.

Hardly surprising that Todd was no great literary raconteur!
The worst book I ever read was Peter Shilton's. My dad's sister had a habit of buying him shit Christmas presents, which he would ignore. I decided to read it while bored, and made myself infinitely more so.
It was a marginally better present than the 'Best of Roger Whittaker' cassette he'd previously received though.

Paid £1 for a copy and feel I was massively overcharged.

Indeed you did. However, I wouldn't really have expected much else from a chap who gave every TV interview by trotting out the platitudes whilst fiddling with his wedding ring and looking at the floor.

This much is true, but despite his recent hair-pulling it's hardly as if Parky has a Cloughesque spellbinding screen presence. I mean, he obviously inspires great loyalty, but so does God and his book's crap too. :D

Cloughesque! Cloughesque? Cloughistic, Shirley.
That's not a leopard!

I look forward to 20,000 home gates now as all those who said they'll never come again flood back in :D
They mustn’t have heard. Attendance of 5,454, of which 760 were away fans. 4k home gates: we’re back to the 80s.

In all seriousness I understand why some have stayed away but well done to those that did go today.

CODE: SELECT ALL Parky on bin-lid TV tonight. The one where Holloway blamed the EU for VAR. I doubt he'll say anything that repeatable.

He'll say nothing he's not already said. He doesn't exactly do bombshell interviews.

His last couple of post match interviews were pretty explosive. But yeah, a week off, he’s probably been away and chilled, will fancy a job at a club who might pay him once in a while. So I suspect he will keep it chairman friendly.
