Jim Spence has published a not so cryptic message ahead of Sevco appointing Steven Gerrard as their new manager.
The former BBC reporter has enjoyed the freedom of no longer being on message with his former colleagues on overdrive about the arrival of the former Liverpool skipper.
The essential strength of great scammers and con artists, is that they can pull in the gullible with ease, and even the passably intelligent, who desperately want to believe that there is such a thing as a free lunch.

Rather than examine the circumstances involved in appointing Liverpool’s u-18 coach BBC Scotland and others are getting carried away by the apparent ‘Box Office’ of the move.
That will be similar to the effect of Mark Warburton and Pedro Caixinha coming to demonstrate their managerial magic on the Scottish game.
With an emergency loan from Close Brothers needed to see the tribute act through until the end of the season it isn’t difficult to see the extent of the problems at Ibrox, highlighted earlier this week with the resignation of Paul Murray as a director.
Once he gets fitted out for a blazer and brogues Gerrard will have to find a whole new team to take the title from Celtic while trying to shift on the players that have failed in 11 matches to beat the hoops.
Apart from Kenny Miller all of the current squad are under contract for at least another season other than loanees Jason Cummings, Sean Goss, Russell Martin and Jamie Murphy.
