East German Smokers
Not content with being the big scoring noise alongside Paul Walsh with Manchester City during the mid 1990's, he also scored the last ever goal at The Dell against Brighton. Although no longer mixing it with glamorous names such as Ian Brightwell and Richard Edghill, he now plies his trade as boss of Norwegian InterToto part-timers, Lillestrom; who as you'll be aware drew with Newcastle at St. James Park on Saturday July 15th. Of course, I'm talking about Uwe Rosler.
Well, as chance would have it, an associate of mine Richard Conklin, was spending a weekend in the Marriott Hotel in Gosforth Park that very weekend. As a soccer enthusiast, you can imagine his excitement when he clocked not only Rosler, but his number two Gunner Halle - him of Oldham Athletic fame - suited and booted at around 1pm for their big inter-toto game with the Toon.
He thought nothing of it, and continued to spend the rest of the day getting trousered, until the midnight hour when he noticed a familiar face indulging in drink and heavy smoking. It was Rosler. After exchanging a few friendly words he departed. Moments later, Conklin and friends found themselves dancing - as you do - to 'Summer of '69,' before Rosler, noticing that one of Conklin's associates had woman about him, burst into the circle, singing and spraying his bottle of Bud like Champagne. By now thoroughly intoxicated, Rosler proceeded to become overtly flirtatious with all females in his vicinity. Conklin and friends were said to have had to escape via a fire exit to escape his horny clutches. Gunnar Halle was nowhere to be seen.
Training on Tuesday 1st August at 6:45pm at Osborne road, Warsash.
