The Mooch lives up to the name yet again.
Speaking to BBC Sportsound before the game he actually had the balls to claim that his comments last week about his club knowing it can’t compete with us in the transfer market were “taken out of context.” That man is a joke.
Does his brain know what his mouth is about to do at any given moment? I have never seen someone flip-flop so consistently in my life.
His statement today is rambling, shambling nonsense in every way.
There is no logic to it at all. Read what he said and then tell me what was taken out of context earlier in the week when their fan sites were fuming about what he actually said.
“No listen, I think that might’ve been taken out of context. We are competing against the odds at the moment because we are behind. We are behind in terms of me being a new manager coming in, we are clearly behind in the league, and we’ve just lost the cup final to our biggest rivals. So we have to turn the odds, we are competing against the odds. We are not level pegging right now, that’s not how I got the job.
“So we need to turn things against the odds, we’ve done it before, I was part of a management team that done that and I’m fully confident that we will do it again. I’m not worried about the future in terms of the future in terms of the money that we’ve got to spend or anything like that. I made the comment that actually when we’ve spent less we seem to get more sometimes so I’m optimistic about the future, I’m excited by it but I’m really disappointed about this week so it’s important that we start to move forward quickly with fully the decisions that we need to make.”
Once again he repeats this utter lie – which the media lets him get away with – that we outspent them when he and Gerrard were at the club. As this website and others have demonstrated, easily, that is absolutely not true at all. Which part of them spending nearly £30 million and us posting a transfer spending surplus is he not understanding?
He talks about “we” in the context of that league title they did win.
Who is the “we”? Him and Gerrard?
You might as well say him, Gerrard and whoever let COVID loose from the lab.
The idea that the No Fans Title is something he can claim as his own is as nonsensical as it was the first time he said it and he keeps on banging on about that too.
That entire statement is an incontinent rant from a guy under serious pressure and feeling the heat. He says his comments were taken out of context and then he practically repeats what he said whilst trying to pretend it’s not what he means.
If this was a Celtic boss talking, one with as little experience as he does, stumbling incoherently from one daft point to another, I’d be scared shitless, especially knowing that this is the joker who will be in charge of the biggest and most important summer in years.
