GROWN MAN THINKS HE'S NEW KING OF COMEDY FOR APPLYING FOR VACANT FOOTBALL MANAGERS JOB
I'm always up for a laugh says Nathan
A Charlton Athletic fan in his mid-forties thinks he's the new 'king of comedy' after sending in a spoof application for the vacant manager’s job.
"I was chatting with some of the lads in the pub and we said it would be a right laugh if one of us applied for the job," said Nathan Nobsack, 44.
"None of the others wanted to go through with it when we sobered up because they had lives to go back to but I'm always up for a laugh."
"It's been a shocking season at the Valley with relegation and all the protests against the owner, so I don't think I could do any worse. What that team needs is someone to tell them to put their arses in gear and who better than one of the fans? I've been going home and away for years so I reckon I know what I'm doing."
A person connected to the club said, "You get at least one crank every time the job comes up. The tragedy is he thinks he's being original."
But it hasn't put Nathan, pictured here leaving Brighthouse, off: "I've not actually worked in the last six years after losing my job in pet food packing but I reckon I can give it a go."
