It seems a long time ago since Big Ron took over at Torino and made his first appearance in the P2E league.... Anyway, after leaving Torino due to Roland's (Nilsson) sexual exploits with the chairman's wife, Big Ron had a brief spell in Portugal in charge of Benfica where somehow he managed a promotion.

Although the Portuguese climate thoroughly agreed with Big Ron's need for a constant tan, the lure of Japan and the offer of a free motorbike from Kawasaki was too much to resist and off he went to the land of the rising sun. A big decision had to be made at this point.... was he going to take Roland (his faithful no 2)? After much deliberation Big Ron came to the conclusion that lure of Geisha girls all over the place was going to prove too enticing for Roland, and as consequence he felt it would be best if he searched for a new no 2.

Flicking through the contact list on his iPhone, he could see a whole range of potential candidates..... Gary Megson, Sheridan, Hirsty, Waddle..... all had fine qualities but Mego was too ginger, Sheridan... mad Irish man, Hirsty... always on the pop, and Waddle... never available as he is always doing reunion gigs singing Diamond Lights with that nut job Hoddle.

Then his eye was caught by one name... Palmer! Why of course.... it was the obvious choice - Carlton Palmer... who better to have as a no 2! Hardworking, industrious, Carlton would be the perfect choice... his Mr Gadget like limbs would look great in the Kawasaki tracksuit...

A quick call to Carlton and the deal was done ....

Carlton Palmer - enjoying life as a new Number 2

Much to Big Ron's surprise Carlton had just done a coaching course and was full of enthusiasm and ideas for his new role! Controversially he wanted him to scrap his 4 4 2 formation that had served him so well and implement a new 4 3 3 system. Big Ron was not too keen on such a radical shake up but as Carlton pointed out.. "It hasn't done Klopp any harm". Anyway, after several Sapporo's followed by a couple of Saki's.... even Big Ron could see the benefits of a new 4 3 3 system.... at least it would play to the strengths of Pepe (the main man on the right wing).

Recruitment was going to be crucial, the old guard was going to have to go .... Gourcuff, Stoch, Di Santo, Ivi Lopez , Rebrov were all shipped out. In came new fresh talent L Evangelista (who wouldn't want a super model in the centre of midfield) , Vada (every team needs some one with Jedi powers) and Daddy Cool.....  now it is questionable whether Daddy Cool was brought in for his footballing ability or whether Big Ron just loved the hit back in the 70's and just wanted the opportunity to sing "ooooooh Daddy, ooooooh Daddy" in every team talk... at least the Karaoke sessions on the long coach journeys were sorted...

With the new squad assembled... it is now time to see whether Big Ron and the Kawasaki squad can handle life in the Xbox Premier.... early results have been up and down... and it looks like survival will be the main target for this season....
