Was in waterstones this afternoon and found an autobiography by Peter Reid which has just been released. Flicked through it and got to the City bit. Apparently we had Stephen Hunt on trial after he was released by Brentford. Reid wanted to sign him but McGinnity said no. Also, Reid was reccomended Shane Long, who was then a teenager playing in Ireland. Would have cost peanuts. MM said no to this also. At the end, he mentions how he managed an English team in a Charity game against Germany. Boris Johnson was in his team, he tore into him for insulting Scousers after his 'self-pity city' comments. Johnson then rugby tackled some Italian during the game that was on tv. Reidy went up in my estimation after that.
