Suits you sir

Question. Sod who Chris Powell will play up front tomorrow, what suit will he wear? I mean how bloody good did he look on the touchline last Saturday? Dark grey suit, single breasted, great cut, Gucci belt and a shocking pink lining. He looked the mutts nuts.

Parky had a strange liking for wearing a jumper under his jacket, Pardew switched between a cheap suit and a tracksuit, Les Reed was a baggy sweats type of guy, Dowie had a liking for suits but they didn’t like him and Curbs only wore a whistle on a big occasion.

Chris was asked in one of his first interviews whether he would be a tracksuit manager or a suited one. He said at that point he hadn’t decided but he certainly made an impression prowling the technical area on Saturday.

I wonder if he has a different suit for Spotland tomorrow? It might be a bit blustery up in the Pennines so maybe a thick double breasted navy blue herringbone will look the part.

    The only suit you see in Rochdale other than the visiting manager on Saturdays is a boiler-suit.

    I think he should go for the American business casual look….golf shirt, beige chinos (at least an inch too short), white socks, Hush Puppies.

    • LOL NYA. You forgot the company logo on the golf shirt and the thin leather entwined belt!

    One thing I can confirm is that despite the rumours, Sir Chris does not wear his shin guards under that sharp-looking suit, just in case he gives himself 10mins second half…

    Smart is smart, and he was certainly the “main man”! It was pointed out today that Peter Reid is wearing a jacket with PM on it!

    • Paul Mariner one would assume. I wonder what they did with all the old PP, TB and MK stuff?
