Struggling Championship side Huddersfield Town’s manager, Mark Robins, expressed his delight today at the form of their new signing God.
“He gets Himself into the most brilliant positions” said Robins, although admitting “He also gets into the most terrible positions at the same time. He seems to be everywhere”.
Town are unbeaten since God’s arrival, although both their wins have been somewhat fortunate after opponents Barnsley seemed to literally turn to stone in the last five minutes and former league leaders Blackpool, 2-1 up at the time, were struck by an attack of particularly nasty boils. Town eventually won 3-2 after God’s wayward free kick rebounded off a plague of locusts into the Blackpool net.
Robins played down rumours that God did not get on with star midfielder Abu Ben Hasseem, concentrating instead on the relationship he has with other players in the Town side. “Its almost telepathic” he enthused, “as if he knows what they are going to do before they do it.”
However Huddersfield fan, Jason Green was unimpressed, “It’s all very well signing God Almighty” he told the BBC 606 phone in “but what we really need is a 30 goals a season striker and creative midfielder.”
