In Copying Ange, The Mooch Proves There’s Not An Original Thought In His Head.

Image for In Copying Ange, The Mooch Proves There’s Not An Original Thought In His Head.

Did you hear The Mooch yesterday, banging on about how “lucky” he is?

Who did that remind you of?

Well, they say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery … by God, that man is desperate to wrap the media around his finger, and he’ll try anything.

This was him showing us his softer side.

And you know what inspired that, right?

This man does not have an original thought in his head unless it’s a stupid one.

Everything else is shameless nicked, and his favourite people to nick stuff from? Celtic.

This was his effort at giving us a little personal insight. It was slightly nauseating, most particularly because he just doesn’t’ do sincerity all that well. He talks about time with his family being everything and then talks about being a “football obsessive” who thinks about the game 24/7, which makes me wonder if he’s really the full shilling.

It’s as if, though, he’s swallowed the Ange Postecoglou playbook and is going through it bit by bit, only doing it badly. The man makes me laugh, he really does.

Why doesn’t this guy just sit in front of the media and talk football instead of branching off into all these other things that aren’t really within his purview?

If he wants to be more like Ange, then he can be like him simply by not snarking about other clubs, focussing on his own team, talking about only his own players and taking it one game at a time.

Oh yeah, and a little respect for other clubs wouldn’t go amiss either.

Ange excels at giving them their due respect. He could learn a lot right there.

On that subject, let me close off the article with a minor digression.

I know the media does, in fact, love this joker but to dredge up comments from Gus McPherson from 2009 when he criticised an opposing team’s pitch in order to make him sound like a hypocrite for defending his own club from The Mooch’s ridiculous rant … it’s dire even by The Daily Record’s standards.

How long did it take them to come up with that?

I guess we should be impressed as it shows that they are capable of actual research … it’s just a shame they don’t direct it at more serious issues.

    James stop giving this clown insight time, he will never come close to Ange .

  • S Thomas says:

    Hypocrisy in football.. surely not. I don’t know anything about Beale away from football to judge his overall character. James I think you’re in the wrong game, to be able to judge people’s minds. Have you ever thought about being a psychiatrist, or psychologist, just a thought. Stop mentioning this fella, it’s bordering on obsessive. It’s the same with Davis Martindale, anything the guy says , you just condemn him. Martindale in my opinion is the only manager in Scotland, who praises us and our manager. But you would never know, with your constant put down of the guy. We have a match against St Mirren today, let’s actually have a piece about that… after all it is a Celtic blog.

      There is a method in the madness of the Poundland Escobar Martinjail, whatever praise is in his comment for our club is always followed up with a but.
      Martinjail is a fake as a manager and as a person,remember this is guy jailed for drug offences and money laundering aye I’m sure he is really nice guy just look at the company he has kept.
      Selling drugs that ruins people and families lives how you can try and defend him is a disgrace and you should be ashamed of yourself, and the guy should be nowhere near any football team never mind a so called professional one,but hey this is what got by the SFA due diligence as well as Mr King and his shenanigans so what nothing surprises me.

      • S Thomas says:

        Who was sticking up for his drug dealing past pal ?. I made a comment that I think he more than most managers in this country is actually complimentary to us. He says and I quote “ Celtic deserve to sign the best players, because they have earned that right”. Another quote, he said “ Cal is the best player in Scotland”. Does that sound like someone to you, someone who criticizes. If it does, well Christ who knows what a compliment is.

    • Johnny Green says:

      Well done Sean, sticking up for your fellow huns is admirable.

      • S Thomas says:

        Every time you come in this blog.. there’s a photo of ibrox manager man. What about having a photo of Paul Mcstay, Jimmy Johnstone, Kenny Dalglish, Henrik Larsson. Why is there always a photo of this guy man. Can someone actually answer this. There is an obsession with this fella, on this blog.

    • Malc says:

      James is the one who needs to see a psychiatrist…

  • S Thomas says:

    David, not “Davis”. This predictive text.. would burst your balls.

    • Effarr says:

      S Thomas, I agree about the predictive text but you didn’t allow for that when you were
      marking another blogger’s English paper for grammar the other day. : )

      • S Thomas says:

        That’s because the guy in question constantly likes to do the same. I was just returning the favor my old pal. Personally I don’t give a toss about grammar, it’s the point that counts. This is a Celtic blog, not an English tutorial.

  • Scud Missile says:

    Lol James so you think the sevco manager is not the full schilling, I would go with calling him Big BENNY Beale.

  • Scud Missile says:

    Put the tea-cosy hat on him at a press conference and before you know it he starts calling Jane Lewis Miss Diane, he will probably find himself at a Crossroads at that point.

  • Bennybhoy57 says:

    Next it’ll be the old cockney rhythm and ryme patter, dressed as a pearly king giving it the chas and dave Rabbit Rabbit Rabbit.

    It’s going to all end apples and pears for the barra boy.
