Thread: Scholes gone!

  1. #1

    Scholes gone!

    .. After about a month.

    All these pundits thinking they can actually run football clubs; as bad as managers like Capello and Wenger thinking they can do punditry.

    It's almost as though it's two completely different jobs
    "Plenty of strikers can score goals," he said, gesturing to the famous old stands casting shadows around us.

    "But a lot have found it difficult wearing the number 9 shirt for The Arsenal."

    Great player in bad manager shocker. See also T. Henry.

    If anyone was surprised that Henry was a rubbish manager they probably need a new hobby. His punditry was almost always incredibly superficial and one dimensional; add to that his enormous ego that oozes out of every pore and it was obvious that he was going to fail and fail badly.

    He got the job cos of the ginger/asthma quota innit. Now they've got that out of the way they can employ a normal person next.
    'Seems that I was busy doing something close to nothing
    But different than the day before'

    'Met a dwarf that was no good, dressed like Little Red Riding Hood'

    Walkin' round like you're Pretty Boy Floyd'

    Maybe that's who I'm thinking of.

    Are we allowed to admit now that, for all that he was a Tottenham player, Gary Mabbutt always seemed remarkably nice?
