It's safe to say that the imminent arrival of Kerry legend Paul Galvin as Wexford Senior Football Manager, there's already a bit of buzz and excitement on a national scale to see how things pan out.

While he may not have been paraded in purple and gold just yet, that didn't stop him getting a bit of good natured ribbing from The Phoenix Magazine last week.

They say that imitation is the greatest form of flattery, and under the guise of 'The Wexford People' Galvin's plans for Wexford's footballing future were laid out for all to see.

The 'article' penned by a Mr 'Gay Leek' poked some fun at Galvin's forays into the world of fashion and stated that among his priorities was the immediate change of Wexford's colours from purple and gold to a more palatable 'mauve and citrus'.

Shorts were to be replaced by boot-cut jeans and one weekly training session was to get the boot in favour of a grooming session.

Also on the priorities list were to upstage hurling manager Davy Fitzgerald at every available opportunity, have Oliver Callan give half time speeches, rename Wexford Park 'Mindfulness Park' and to keep a chalk duster nearby at all times.

While opinions may be divided on the impact that Galvin can have on the fortunes of the struggling Wexford footballers, his appointment is generating a bit of interest at the very least.
