Graham Taylor cited again in another NLP "The gaffer's greatest gaffer" article. This time by Quentin Townsend (I'd never heard of him!) who is a semi pro manager at non league step 5. He talks of Taylor when at Wolves - Taylor gave him his first professional contract. As usual refers to Taylor's man management, but also refers to Taylor's right hand man Steve Harrison who appeared to be the less serious character closer to the team. Says he also saw Taylor doing a lot around the Club, not just on the football pitch

Good to see Paul Farman doing his stuff at Carlisle - top of L2. Cheltenham doing well, although Ellis Chapman seems to only be playing half games as a sub 🤔
Chapman has been told to improve his mentality and work on the 'other side of the game' by his manager. Doesn't seem like he's changed much to me. He could be a semi decent league 1/2 player if he bothered to put the effort in off the ball every now and then.

It's called "doing a Nolan". ;)

Did just see Matt Green going for a run this morning if that counts as ex Imps news
I imagined Grimsby didn’t have a game today, but I see Matt is playing loan striker.
Is it normal to be out running an hour before you leave to play in a game?
(He did have Grimsby training too so maybe running to catch the coach)
