CAN'T PASS, WON'T PASS, THEY CALL ME NICOLAS.
Just watching the WEEDS match and I am reminded of a possibly apocryphal story concerning Brian Clough and maybe John Robertson. Ol' Big Ead told JR after training to run down to the corner flag and back with the ball. On his return he was told to do it again this time sans balon. Coming to a halt alongside Clough, he was then faced with the question, "Which was easier, with or without the ball?" "Without." he replied. "Well, you might try bloody passing the damn thing next Saturday, then!"
Can't quite see Keegan having the cojones to try that one on Nick, though. Probably throw another Gallic strop and head back for the romantic lights of Montmatre quicker than you could say baguette.
