There are two schools of thought when it comes to The Mooch and his incessant need to draw attention to himself. He’s either a complete fool or he’s a publicity whore who is so keen on making headlines that he doesn’t realise how he comes across.
In a very short time every rival fan in Scotland is going to detest this joker and every other club is going to want to beat his side to the degree that their players will run through walls to do it. He really loves himself and the sound of his own voice, and his arrogance is limitless. He has already talked down every other club in Scotland.
Prior to their game today against St Johnstone, he decided to double down on his comments about Ange being lucky. But he’s a slippery sod and so what he was allegedly doing was offering a “clarification.” Ange owned him when he blundered into this previously, and having said his piece I don’t think he’ll bother to do so again.
Beale denied that there was anything malicious or snide in his comments. It’s not the first time he’s had to backtrack like this, and he does it as shamelessly as he attended the Aberdeen fixture whilst his predecessor was still in a job. He counts himself amongst the “lucky” managers, he said, before pointing out that Celtic still spends more money.
It’s typical of a base coward; to deny you were being insulting whilst offering the same insult. Celtic spend more money, that’s what he said, which accounts for our success.
All the nice things he tried to say about Ange are devalued by that assertion and he knows that full well.
He can think what he likes. His team were very lucky tonight, lucky that they faced a side without serious firepower in it.
He will not be so lucky come Hampden at the end of next month. He will not be so lucky at other times this season when he goes up against Hibs, if Nisbet is in form, or Hearts if Shankland has his act together.
One area where I agree with what he had to say; Ange deserves enormous credit for getting his transfer judgement absolutely right.
The Mooch is relying on the judgement of somebody else, so it really doesn’t matter how much money is available over there. In the summer, Van Bronckhorst got a tidy sum to spend and every penny just about was wasted by Ross Wilson.
If The Mooch thinks any amount of money will solve that problem he’s wrong.
He’s wrong about a lot of things, this guy.
