Don't be a dope - make a splash by backing Spurs
I’M sure you’ve seen the programme about kids who say the funniest things but I reckon they should bring out a new show called: Football managers say the most stupid things.
And lets face it, even if it bombs it’ll still be a million times better than ITV’s latest flop Splash which is clearly the worst thing on the box since C4 employed Ortis Deley to front their Athletics coverage.
Harry Redknapp was stirring it, suggesting only a dope could fail at Chelsea only to have to do more U-turns than Michael Schumacher when it was put to him that his replacement at Tottenham, Andre Villas-Boas, had just flopped big style at Stamford Bridge.
Apparently it was taken out of context but they always say that when words come back to haunt them. Arry basically called AVB dopey which led to the Spurs gaffer being a bit grumpy but I expect the visitors to be happy come full time and I can only see three points for Tottenham when the teams meet at Loftus Road.
There is always a concern that you’re main bet can be dead even before the 3pm games have started so I always make sure I have an interest outside the lunchtime kick offs and it’s a Leicester/MK Dons double for me.
Leicester are clicking into gear with Chris Wood one of the signings of the season and the New Zealand brute should fill his boots at Bristol City, while MK Dons have the class to bash Bury on home soil.
The shoddy Shakers are winless in ten and boss Kevin Blackwell told Radio Manchester: “I say to the players that they can think pale ale and drink pale ale, or they can think champagne and drink champagne. I think champagne.”
See, I told you managers say the stupidest things.
