Go Westley

Miaow: Neil Young found this whilst searching
 for a new left back.

Neil Young has shown the strongest signs yet that he has ambitions of managing full time after it emerged that he is employing tactics made famous by Graham Westley, a man who has recently earned Football League employment following years of experience in the non-leagues.

New Preston North End boss Westley hit the headlines this week as it was reported that he had sent motivational text messages to his players in the early hours of Saturday morning.

This, it transpires, is no longer a technique unique to the former Stevenage gaffer.  The Jestrian understands that at 2am last night, several Chester players were disturbed by their smart phones as Young emailed them pictures of “lolcats”.

“It was dead annoying, doesn’t he know we’re trying to sleep?” raged Matty McNeil.

Nothing New: Former Chester City
Manager Terry Smith used to use lolcats to
demonstrate his training techniques.
“I thought something serious had happened!” said a bewildered Iain Howard.

“I liked the one that was asking for a cookie,” laughed Chris Simm.

Other reports of goings on at North End include a story that Westley employed a sports psychologist who ‘got the squad thumping their chests while chanting “We are going to f****** win this Saturday", but Young stopped short of emulating this, worrying that it would lead to another spate of players breaking their collarbones.
