After leaving in seven at Goodison, the Black Cats record signing suffered the ultimate sanction at Keano’s hands:
“Craig Gordon has been fingered and dropped.”
Harsh but fair.
And Jim had his own cruel verdict for Kenwyn Jones and his clumsy brand of profligacy:
“Ahh, denied by the upright. Or maybe he denied himself.”
Perched as he undoubtedly was in a Montrose broom cupboard, there was a suspicion Jim had the old gramophone going in the background. Though we had him down as more of a Chuck Mangione man.
“That needed another brick in the wall. There’s a touch of the Pink Floyds there.”
There was time for the George-style jinxing:
“It’s a very good away point for Derby County.”
Before the classic Jim signoff:
“And the final score at the Stadium of Light – where the end of the tunnel it was – is one to nil.”
