Not hearing any news I had resorted to looking at the Accrington line ups for their games to see if he had made the bench. I had started to get concerned about his welfare.
Whenever I listen to interviews with John Coleman I always think what a wonderfully supportive manager and gentleman he is.
I noticed on the article that it had received 54,944 views (at the time of writing). I couldn't work out if those views were for that one article. If they are, that is a lot of people concerned about his welfare (given that the club only get a couple of thousand through the gates).
Earlier in the summer Billy told a friend of mine he would much rather be a window cleaner than have to deal with pre season training and the pressure he felt being a pro footballer anymore
I didn't post it then as I was hoping he would feel better and change his mind
Talented guy. You would hope someone could help him feel better
I would hope so too, but I don’t think it works like that. John Coleman is a quality guy who will give him as much as he can I am sure. Never thought I’d be saying that a few years back but Billy is in good hands there. Even if he doesn’t keep up with the pro game, I hope he finds contentment somewhere. He’s a lovely bloke is Billy and his mum is lovely too. Peace and love to him and his family.
That is absolutely fantastic. We had a week of really disgusting Bulgaria and Haringey racism news and now this. A banner like that can be really powerful. It is the fans speaking as one. Imagine if there were fans banners that read 'Racists not welcome in our game'. The authorities and the players with their banners doesn't seem to work.
To illustrate the power of banners, I always look out for Morecambe results and hope that they have won after their 2009 offering at our ground.
I still look out to see if Billy Kee has made it to the substitutes bench.
