Following breaking news that Tranmere Rovers have sacked manager John Barnes after 11 games in charge, a source close to the former England international claims he is looking at the positives from his reign.
“After short spells with Celtic and Jamaica, Barnsey was just pleased to be given a fair crack of the whip,” mumbled the imaginary informer.
“It may have only been two wins from 11 but both of those wins were completely tactically masterminded by John, although the own goal and red card in his favour did help.
“As far as Barnsey is concerned, it’s progress. And he’ll be looking for at least 20 games from his next appointment.”
The Jamaican-born tactician has already been linked with a short spell at Ipswich, before a more experienced man invariably takes over around December.
