A funny old game

Is Dan Ashworth a marquee signing that Dan Ashworth would recommend?

If Ashworth does manage to squirm out of his enforced gardening leave and take on his third long-term vision in just over five years, then he will be reunited with his close friend, the marginally gainful Sir Dave Brailsford. [Emphasis added]

A bit off-brand for my weblog, I know, but the number of long-term visions that come to naught because, in part, of what eleven players do on the pitch1 over 90-plus minutes ought to be humbling.

  1. Or don’t do. Or do, but it turns out that the other eleven do it better on that particular day.↩︎
