Here's the story of Vodka Vic - the man behind my username. Who else remembers him rip Runcorn apart? I was in the Paddock that day- man was he talented.

I didn't know there was a 'real' Vodka Vic until I read that - he makes Stan Bowles seem relatively sensible.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Was only just discussing Kasule the other day, I remember him being quality although he only played 2 games according to the story. Need to check my match programmes from back in the day.

Bri Little's thoughts on Victor
Brian Little wrote:McNeill tried to send Kasule on loan to Darlington for a month, but he didn't even last that long. Darlo manager Brian Little commented: "There's nothing wrong with Victor the footballer, but his activities off the field have proved a disruptive factor. With his reputation and one or two things we decided it was too much of a gamble." The Shrewsbury Chronicle agreed: "Wild winger Vic Kasule is fast becoming football's most unwanted man."

As well as everything in Victor Kasule's colourful past, a lesser known fact is that he was actually in the pub in Glasgow that was demolished by that police helicopter! But fittingly, he survived to tell the tale...

Great story - apparently he couldn't stand vodka either!

remember him playing and thinking what a talent he was. shame he's had to learn the hard way. lucky to survive the Clutha disaster.
