Galway United Job Application from 2008

In 2008 I decided with my in depth football knowledge I would embark on an adventure to try and become the esteemed manager of Galway United when the position was vacant. I applied through the proper channels and got the then chairman Nick Leesons e-mail address and sent the following:

Leisure Interests

During the week I am 100% dedicated to my job, however on weekends I enjoy lying soaking in a tub for 12 hours on a Saturday listening to my soft rock records and counting the tiles in my bathroom over and over again until I get a different result. I also understand many of the fans of your fine club were concerned by the fact your last manager Tony something or other lived in Dublin. You will not have that problem with me because I hate the place, I’m Galway through and through! I live very close to the stadium so as long as you provide me with a limousine from my house to training and matches we won’t have the same problem with the fans. As your fans are mostly simpletons I believe they will find the name Rory easy to work into their horrible chants.

Other Information

At the age of four I got my first erection which doctors say should have been physically impossible, the erection lasted for 3 years when it was surgically rectified by replacing my penis with a small industrial rubber that’s sometimes used to make tops of gear knobs in cars…myself and the lads joke about me putting her into second all the time…In terms of football, I like it!
