Will it rain on Pedro’s parade?

I see that Poor Pedro continues to impress from the dugout with a very creditable draw against Kilmarnock.

The criteria for his appointment must have been exhaustive.

If I didn’t know any better I would suspect that perhaps non-footballing matters into play.

Did some in the Sevco High Command believe that the likeable Portuguese chap could be a bit of a rain maker?

Was the possibility of Persian Gulf investment one of the things that made the ex-Al-Gharafa chap so attractive to the Holding Company Vehicle?

Did Poor Pedro fail to disabuse them of this belief?

Meanwhile, Mr Wesley Andrew Foderingham will need to rapidly master the lexicon of Portuguese goalkeeping gestures at Murray Park before he travels to Pittodrie.
