Wolves Foil-Sealed For SuccessPosted: April 1, 2008
Mick McCarthy hopes to give his Wolves side an extra advantage in the Championship run-in by forcing his players to train wearing bodysuits made of silver foil.
McCarthy said “I love Corn Flakes me, and I noticed they’d started putting them in silver foil bags to keep them fresher. I could tell the difference as soon as I bit into some and I thought ‘aye-aye Mick, think on because there’s some kind of a plan to be hatched here son.’”
Each player received one foil suit on Monday and will be forbidden to remove it until after the last ball has been kicked this season.
As an added bonus for McCarthy, the pubs and clubs in Wolverhampton are renowned for their strict ‘no foil suits’ policy, which should prevent any lapses in what is sure to be a nail-biting run-in.
