Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Ron Atkinson -- one of association football's most colourful figures -- is AOL UK's new Director of Football. He will head "You're The Boss" on AOL, although the post is not thought to be full-time. "You're The Boss" is an imaginary game where people who think they know a lot about footie can immerse themselves in a fantasy world for the next nine months and pretend to be something they're not. "The lure of getting involved with football on the Internet was too hard to resist," said Big Ron. "The fact that you can find out about the latest transfer news or results as they happen is ideal for the fast-paced world of football in this country," he said. If he thinks footie is fast-paced, wait until he tries to get to grips with the Net -- he won't know what's hit him. Ron's recent track record could be worrying for AOL UK supporters. His stewardship at Nottingham Forest at the end of last season saw this once great club slip out of the Premiership. Let's hope that AOL UK's high profile pre-season signing doesn't end up leading the OSP towards relegation. ®
