Another View On Nicko

Everybody at Barry Town was shocked when reports started to come through that Nicko was going to join the Swans. The disbelief was evident on the League of Wales Mailing List, when even non-Barry fans were shocked. What made it more unbelievable is that Nicko, is supposedly part owner of Barry Town, so we all thought that he would not be going, and it was all a nasty rumour, but he has gone, and life must go on.

The Swansea fans will love Nicko, as he certainly is a character, and his half time, f-word team talks are already legendary! During one of the team talks (or tantrums), Nicko lost his rag, and whilst giving the team a severe bollocking, kicked one of those Lucozade, wire drinks carriers, which immediately tangled around his foot, and he spent the rest of the bollocking, shaking his leg, trying to get the thing off, while the team bit their tongues, trying not to snigger like schoolboys. He is an entertaining figure, but make no bones about it, he wants to be, and very probably will be, the next Welsh manager, so do not be surprised if Sparky goes, that Nicko leaves Swansea in the lurch, the same way he has left Barry, but now you know where his ambitions lie, look forward to a change for the better in Swansea’s fortunes.

It would not surprise me if Nicko, does not cherry pick, three of Barry’s best players, Jon French (no.8), Jamie Moralee (no.9) and Mike Flynn (no.10) Moralee, was rumoured to be joining you pre-season, but nothing came of it! As you can see, you may end up with a new front row, which in all honesty is probably a lot better than you have got at the moment. It would not surprise me if Gary Lloyd went as well, as he still lives in Llanelli, and this may be his last chance to play in the Nationwide League.

Nicko, probably like all managers is prone to favouritism, and will stick with certain players through thick and thin. I am a bit annoyed that he released two players to Bath, and Merthyr on Monday, and then left himself on the Wednesday!

I cannot say much about Colin Addison, except he has been seen wearing some terrible suits, but all in all, he looks very well preserved for 61, and personally, I wish I looked that good at 37, let alone in my 60’s.
