    Should Vlad replace Judas Iscariot at the centre of Dante's Hell or are there more appropriate candidates?

    Filippo Giraldi maybe or perhaps Andre Gray aka The Popstral's Wastrel?

    Is the centre of hell just too small to fit certain egos from within the club?

    You miss the point about Hell. It's us that are in Hell.

    Clive James translation of the Divine Comedy is excellent.
    I would not put Vlad in anything other than the outer circles.
    Bassett has to be nearer the JI role surely?

    It seems to me he belongs in the 8th circle with the frauds. My memory escapes me as to what the punishment is there, but hopefully it's the one where they are buried up to their neck in terds.

    Whatever, watching WFC at present is definitely Purgatory.

    My Dad said " Lovely pianist,Reg Varney".
    He also thought Lendl would win Wimbledon the year he lost in the first round to a traffic cone.

    Hell is other people. That's why life has been so brilliant this year.

    I remember growing up that he had an occasional prime time slot on ITV when he would bang out a few tunes on the old joanna. This was nicely parodied by Scottish comedian Stanley Baxter in a skit in one of his Moving Picture Shows. On The Buses was big when I was a nipper. I remember being in a large London hospital to have my tonsils out when I was 6, and refusing to go to bed until I had seen that evening's On The Buses episode. Another thing I remember from that stay is that all the young lads, myself included, brought with them a selection of toy guns to play with. Can you imagine what what happen if you did that these days! How times have changed.

    Dave Bassett, Silva and Vialli are the only real idiots who have screwed us over in the history. Ivic is not seventh level of hell yet, but his boring stale football has put him behind QSF on the waiting list.

    Don't agree about Vialli. It was the owners of the time who appointed him and gave him all that money who were the idiots.
    What about Rogers?

    True good point. Rodger's sudden switch-a-roo to Reading was a bit of a stab in the back.

    I think Vialli suing the club when it was on the verge of going bust cemented him as a ****head for most people.

    A good point well made, but I still maintain it was a crazy appointment from the start and I remember GT implied the same at the time.

    Vialli blaming us, the fans, after a New Years defeat at home to Millwall (1-3). This on its own is enough to put him in the WFC Most Hated, Hall Of Fame. His bald head should been pasted with golden syrup before being shoved into an angry Hornet's Nest.

    Very true.
    GT told me that the board didn't even interview V.
    Completely star struck.

    Brian Anderson and his wife's pasta dinner that persuaded Vialli to sign. Should have given him a tin of Spaghetti Hoops instead.
    Anderson was really a Spurs fan and disappeared back to Israel when it all went pear-shaped.

    Your namesake was, for a time, one of the biggest TV stars in the UK. There's lovely bit in Benny Hill's biography ("Funny, Peculiar") where there's an account of a "joke-off" between two comics to be "2nd banana" to Varney in a planned vehicle (ho, ho!) for him: Benny Hill and
    Peter Sellers

    Well that seemed to have the desired effect. Is it time to replace Vlad with someone else or should we keep our powder dry until it's really needed?
