Farewell Fatty

A momentous day in our club's recent history, one that we've known was coming for the best part of a couple of months: Fat Fred has vacated the chairman's office, to be replaced by Chris Mort.

Mort has thanked his predecessor "for all he has done for the club over the last 15 years". The new incumbent clearly has a lot to learn about the events of the last 15 years if he thinks we should be praising Shepherd to the heavens. We'd prefer to remember him as the author of today's Guardian Fiver has, "one of the most buffoonish blowhards ever to chair a Premiership club", before trying to forget he ever existed.

His departure begs the question, though: with Fat Fred and his motormouth gone, and Mike Ashley keen to keep a low profile, are our days of being embarrassed daily in the press a thing of the past? Spare a thought for the poor tabloids, eh?
