Delboy Facey - He Plays A Captains Game

Last updated : 28 January 2011 By Vic Erzantarz

Since taking the armband against Wycombe Wanderers Delroy Facey has been a revelation for the Imps. The two wins against Stockport County and Cheltenham Town saw him doing things few thought him capable off.  Steve For sure Tilson certainly realises appearances can be desceptive,  yet would you Adam & Eve it' the shortest 6 footer known to man has thrown of the shackles of his rotund stature to defy the critics and perhaps even nature itself.

But enough pulling of this geezers peg or Hampton, depending on your persuasion, we are here to praise our captain Maximus not be chariot wreckers!

Delboy - what else would Rhyme time Tilly call his captain –  take a bow son.  From prematch and halftime speeches to a constant motivational 90 minute dialogue on the pitch you have been outstanding. Your desire to be involved, to get stuck in, to have a go have been inspirational and central to  the turnaround in dressing room moral over the last couple of weeks.

The Imps might have lost that game at Wycombe but Delboy’s reign as Captain was clearly just beginning. Long may it continue Delboy, long may it continue. Mr Facey plays a Captains game as well as a mans game and no mistake.

Anyway whilst you all look at Delboy's stats,  I’d best be off to the kitchen to wash up me old china’s (china plates mates). Alas since A Grey opened his North & South things have not been the same in our Pope (Pope in Rome Rome not Tom  - which incidentally is far ruder in Ryme).  In my defence I have even pointed out that god gave them smaller feet so they could be closer to the cooker and the sink but to no avail. So I’ll grit me Hampstead Heath and bare it until Saturday comes………..
