We got a thread for this yet
Assuming the extracts aren't too abridged, I think Beckham was a bit hard done by when he got a boot in his chops
-'Look, you're a silly man.'
Can't wait to see Eamonn Holmes really grill him and get the good stuff out next week.
YOU can do better
someone must be able to think of some good ones
"Bosnich was tucking into everything: sandwiches, soups, steaks. He was going through the menu, eating like a horse."
he's coming across as a really undignified twat.
dunno though havent read the book have i lol
basically slagging off players he used to manage for the sake of publicity.
Everyone knew he fell out with Keane and he's just repeating stuff that he's already said when it comes to the incident and Keane's managerial stints.
Everyone knew he moved Beckham on because of the media circus that followed him.
just slagging them off because hes being honest, however twattish he comes across
which is fair enough really.
hope keane's read it and takes all his anger out on walcott or whichever pipsqueak he ends up next to on itv tonight
in a cheery way, expecting a wry laugh in return.
He still does not know which Arsenal player threw pizza at him in the Old Trafford tunnel
Ferguson and morrisseys. I shouldnt like either but I do. Great couple o' lads
Keane will explode, I'm sure.
'so, Roy, this book by your old boss, says a fair few things tha...'
Keane will strike, silently, like that bird in Kill Bill. His face won't change as Chiles' head skims across the knees of Lee Dixon
Just looks like it would if ya know what I mean
Keane will just give him the death look until suddenly
He seems to be griping about the fact that Beckham was unresponsive to him the following day, with the inference that it was because he (Beckham) was more interested in the media getting his side of the story.
Not being funny, but if my boss had pegged a boot at my head and drawn blood, I wouldn't be particularly interested in listening to him talk about work. I also didn't detect any apology to Beckham from Ferguson - that is Page One stuff for anyone who has a clue about man-management
My guess would be very little; he took a right whupping from Coolmore so I can't imagine him wanting to oversharing about the whole thing
"Terms of the settlement" being the official reason, not wanting to publically admit to fucking up the long term future of the club for some horse jizz being the proper one I'd imagine.
He is obviously a man used to getting his own way and not accustomed to being a junior partner. But he really was pissing with the Big Boys on that one, just can't fuck with the likes of Magner and expect to win. Especially amused by the deluded supporters turning up at racecourses to 'protest'. I imagine them being greeted by a wave of total indifference and not a little derision
and then was very, very childish
It's commonly known that he was very close to joining Spurs at one point. I think he spoke to Liverpool as well. Would be a strange quirk of fate if United's two great managers (Busby turned Liverpool down pre-Shankly) had snubbed the Bin Dippers.
There's a full chapter in his book about Liverpool. Wonder if you lot won the lottery early enough to register any major impact on his memoirs. Doubt it.
You carry on measuring yours by the number of words you get in a retiring drunk's book, or how good you were thirty-five years ago.
You've got about as many major honours as we've got League Cups haven't you? Level on titles with Blackburn? Probably not the wisest measuring stick to use buddy!
he has the power to delete posts that make him look like a clown and he's not afraid to wield it.
going to have to refresh the football threads more frequently.
Congrats on all those trophies Liverpool won before you were born, though!
City - 3
(i can't even remember what my original point was here. i'm pretty sure it wasn't to wind up a load of plastic Scousers, though, to be compeltely honest. Don't particularly see how it was taken as a personal slight against a once-great football club)
their 'cup treble' and the Champions League over the Premier League. Agreed though, lots of people are very bitter about British football's example of how to manage at the top level.
Doubt anyone seriously considers winning the European Cup a more impressive feat than winning the Premier League. Porto won it, ffs.
The English top flight title is the most prestigeous honour in club football. Always has been. Always will be. Ferguson's said that himself many times. It's the ultimate aim of any player, manager or supporter.
