Although Carolyn has grown into the role and is now a credit to the club, I think it's fair to say that she didn't do herself any favours in the early days when some of the stuff she came out with made you cringe.

Saw it in the Metro as well, appeared to be a cut down version of the Guardian article.

She could suck a snooker ball through thirty feet of garden hose with those lips.

Technically you're incorrect, as in your scenario "suck" wouldn't be achieved by the lips, but by a creation of a partial vacuum in the hose using the lungs. (In conjunction with the chest muscles and diaphragm)

The lips would simply create a seal on the hose.

You're obviously an idiot.

We could talk about the women in your area, but we'd end up making mincemeat out of them :P

Back to the subject in hand.
A very good article with all the emphasis on Carolyn. Keep up the good work and get the cobwebs blown off the old fogies of the FA.
I presume those Stags fans who abused her are the ones who only turn out for the County and Spirite games.

Seconded and underscored by using 'you're' instead of 'your'.

Technically that post wasn't necessary.

No need to show off just because you managed an O-Level pass and know the difference between 'your' and 'you're'.

I don't go for all this self prepelled journalistic propaganda

Carolyn is the CEO of MTFC, what other role is she after "The Apprentice"?
