So Steve McClaren is set to pocket something like £2,500,000 for being a failure, no wonder the team are not from this planet, their manager isn’t.
Still at least they have ‘football’ and ‘another planet’ in comment with Arsenal!
McClaren said it was the most disappointing day of his life getting fired and paid £2.5million. That’s something else we have in common, it was my most disappointing day, when you received it.
Why do the F.A insist on giving managers 5 year contracts? Who was going to come in and poach Steve McClaren? In fact, when has an England manager ever been poached by another club whilst under contract with the F.A? It is bad business.
The whole situation is all a load of old bollocks if you ask me. Any man that can sit there, in front of the nation and say he won’t resign because he is looking to the future is a cunt. Does he think the public are fools? We all know McClaren stayed for the golden ‘Fuck off’.
People will say that you can’t sniff at £2.5 million, and your average Joe public would take the cash. For starters the average man has not earned the sort of cash McClaren has over the last ten years, Shat Mac’s not short of a few pennies is he? Secondly, most people who get sacked from their job can’t pocket a £2 million book deal and thirdly, most people who fail that badly at their job can’t go out and get a new job for a million pounds plus.
If Steve McClaren had any dignity, he’d donate that £2.5 million to an English Football academy. He won’t though, will he?
Onto things of a more Arsenal nature!
WE HAVE AN INJURY CRISIS!
Maybe that was a bit melodramatic. We have 6 players out for the game on Saturday.
That could leave the midfield looking a touch weak! Maybe Diarra and Denilson will start? Or maybe he will bring Rosicky into the middle and put Theo out wide? Who knows!
I expect us to turnover Wigan. They are a very weak side. Imagine getting rolled by the Spuds 4-0?
Patrick Vieira is back doing what he does best… Talking lots of shit. This time about Wenger taking over the England team.
“You need someone with a big character, experience and a knowledge of English football and English players. “Arsenal fans won’t be happy but I think Arsene Wenger would be a good choice. He really knows the English game.”
Hey Patrick, I reckon Adriano should start doing your girlfriend. He has more Charisma and is better looking than you. I know you’d be pissed that I’d suggest that, but I think he’s a good choice.
Anyway, Wenger had this to say,
‘If I was English then of course – but I am not so it is a ‘no’.’
So do one Paddy.
Another piece of good news is that Steve “I stole all the Arsenal Boys” Bruce wont be taking over his post until after the Arsenal game. Apparently there is a wrangle over his image rights. Birmingham want the £250,000 they paid him for the rights back. You’d have to say thats fair, I think he was obviously dealing with someone on the Birmingham board of directors when they slipped that clause into his contract!
Enjoy your Friday Grovers! See you in the comments section!
