George Lawrence’s Summer Shorts – Golly Josh

Sunday 8 June 2021

In the same way that you’re never more than six feet from a rat, KRob is never more than three months from signing a winger.  The first of four (only four?) he plans to bring into the club over the summer is on the verge of signing. And it could be the return of one of the great man-buns; Ryan Williams who has turned down a new contract at Portsmouth.

Lincoln City have confirmed they’ve received no communication from West Brom about MApp taking over at the Hawthorns. Odds-on favourite to take over the vacant role, MApp’s staying poker faced, or possibly orgasmically happy, or maybe incandescent with rage, frankly how can you possibly tell?

The people of Huddersfield haven’t been this excited since their industrial revolution in 1987. Yorkshire Live have gathered quotes from all Josh Ruffels’ previous Oxford managers. KRob called him a diamond, MApp said he has a fantastic attitude and Gary Waddock’s said he once passed him some tea bags in the staff canteen.

He runs, scores for fun and persists with a man bun; Ryan Williams has become Oxford’s first signing of the summer after turning down a new contract at Portsmouth. It’s Williams’ second stint having played on loan in 2013. When he arrived for his medical he asked where Tom Newey, Sean Rigg and David Hunt were, when he was told they’d left, he signed immediately.

After over 300 games and 8 years at the club, Josh Ruffels has finally signed for Huddersfield Town fulfilling his lifelong dream to play in the Championship relegation zone. Ruffles leaves behind many great memories; Wembley, derby wins, promotion and giant killings, we will never forget his name, even if half of us can’t spell it.

Podcasts, they’re everywhere aren’t they? Nearly everywhere, it seems. In the immediate aftermath of Josh Ruffels’ move to Huddersfield Town, the ever progressive Yorkshire Live have helped Terriers Fans, who are not scheduled to get podcasts until 2031, by copying out a transcript of T’Manor’s brief chat about Ruffels’ move.

Former Oxford United head PE teacher Chris Short has joined Middlesborough, which is much closer to his home in York. KRob has been glowing in his tribute to short “Amazing man, brilliant at his job and someone who people warm to straight away.” Not an accusation that you can level at Short’s new boss Neil Warnock.
