Hi, is that Alex/Joe/Nathan/Jos/Scott/Angela?
It’s James Whitiker here.
Just wondered whether you’d be free to play next week?
Alex/Joe/Nathan/Jos/Scott/Angela: Jim, you’d better speak to my agent.
Hi, is that JZed?
This is James Whitiker.
I’m here with Andy. We were just wondering whether Alex/Joe/Nathan/Jos/Scott/Angela might be free to play next week?
Jim, I have a few concerns. My client, as you know, is keen to help the old country, proud to wear the cap, but there’s IPL9 and we’re keen to pursue certain leads in the BB.
I think we can dovetail things for you on that, JZed.
Look Jim, let me be frank. We have real issues with the culture you’re running. It’s quite restricting. There have been worries expressed over your handling of some very talented young players in recent years. You know, they might have been better advised to give you all a miss.
That’s not strictly fair, JZed
You know these young guys, Jim, it’s not the way they see these things. It’s about flair and self-expression.
Now JZed, we want self expression, you must know that.
It’s one thing saying that, Jim, it’s another giving real licence. The way my client sees it, you can’t succeed unless you have a personal connection. It’s all a bit too authoritarian at the moment.
If you wanted your clients own choice of coach or mindunfcuker, we’re cool with that.
That’s good of you, Jim, but I really think maybe this year, if you don’t mind, we’ll give it a miss.
But we haven’t talked coin yet?
That’s really not the issue Jim. We here at Sportco, we think long, long term. So, don’t be frightened to lift the phone anytime in the future. Always ready to talk … and good luck next week. Caio Jim!
