This made me laugh :)
Good sense of humor in both application and answer from chairman.

What made me angry that suddenly every sport site is writing about this, in my country and abroad as well. Pity that they can't come up with new stuff and they just copy paste each other.

not sure why this has made a reappearance in a blog after all this time but it is brilliant. Fair play to steve gibson he obviously has a good sense of humour

I have a friend who's applied in the past for the Reading & Q.P.R jobs.

He also wrote a letter to Roman Abramovich asking for a donation to the cats protection league. He didn't get a reply though the tight git!

I applied for the Rotherham United job aged 18 in 1985. Norman Hunter got it, but I got a nice letter from the chairman.

My cousin applied for the same job when it was going too, mentioning CM and i think he got a similar response :p

M'boro would probably have been better off by signing him in hindsight.

Nah, it was a well done piece of PR by Gibson to secure his rep as one of the best Premier League chairmen, even though he was cutting back on spending.

He could do with something like that now, he's not the most popular at the moment :(

Neither of you are. We all know Fergie will outlive all of us.

He's like the FM manager. He never retires, never dies. He just stops ageing when he reaches 100.
