Bryan Gunn gets support from daughter, interweb community
In the past, people from the world of football have misused Facebook: a silly Crystal palace youngster blew his chances of of a big transfer via his news feed, and an injured Oxford Utd player used the social networking site to spread the word of racism.
17-year-old A-level student Melissa Gunn, however, is using the site to get her dad Bryan a job. She has set up the group “Bryan Gunn for Manager“, and it has over 1,300 members – approximately 1,300 more members than the “Bryan Gunn NOT for Norwich City manager group“.
The legendary Carrow Road goalkeeper has been taking temporary charge of the club since Glenn Roeder lost at home to Charlton (aka the worst team on Earth).
The 45-year-old Scot – the inaugural member of Norwich’s Hall of Fame – hopes to secure the gaffer’s position full-time, in what daughter Melissa describes as “the icing on the cake of an extraordinary career at Norwich City”.
