I was so frigging angry when he was sacked I made my first ever post on the old City Gent site.
I also signed myself up to those email updates, which drove my email account up the wall. Anybody remember them?
Probably the best decision GR ever made, and I said so at the time.
As much as I liked Kammy he got ideas above his station and went all 'Fergie in europe' on us. In complete contrast to Todd he ended up chanhing the team and formation every week to try and out fox the opposition. Which is no bad thing upto a point but imho he went too far and it ended up confusing the players and our performances and results suffered because of it.
Apart from his wage from Sky he has a few other irons in the fire that appear to pay quite well. If anyone wants him back at VP it would have to be a hell of an offer to tempt him.
I came across this website while looking for summat else. Nice work if you can get it...
I actually had the pleasure of being at a 'gentlemans evening' with Chris Kamara as the guest speaker. It was at Brighouse Town FC and they had the comedian Jonny Casson on aswell. Kammy tells some great stories, jokes and even a bit of banter with the crowd, while keeping it quite light and interesting. He's not for the faint hearted though, every other word was a swear word and some of his jokes and stories were VERY close to the bone. He even told a few racist jokes which suprised me but probably shows the measure of the man that he can laugh at himself. All in all a quality night and i would certainly recommend that if you get a chance, go see him.
