The wisdom of Gordon Strachan


Recommended Posts

Southampton manager Gordon Strachan on Wayne Rooney :

" Its an incredible rise to stardom, at 17 you're more likely to get a

call from Michael Jackson than Sven Goran Eriksson ".



Reporter: Gordon, Do you think James Beattie deserves to be in the

England squad?

Strachan: I dont care, I'm Scottish



Reporter: "Gordon, can we have a quick word please?"

Strachan: "Velocity" [walks off]

Reporter: Is that your best start to a season?

Strachan: Well I've still got a job so it's far better than the Coventry

one, that's for sure.



Reporter: Are you getting where you want to be with this team?

Strachan: We're not doing bad. What do you expect us to be like? We were

eighth in the league last year, in the cup final and we got into Europe.

I don't know where you expect me to get to. Do you expect us to win the

Champions League?



Reporter: Gordon, you must be delighted with that result?

Strachan: You're spot on! You can read me like a book.



On Augustine Delgado:

Reporter: Bang, there goes your unbeaten run. Can you take it?

Strachan: No, I'm just going to crumble like a wreck. 'll go home,

become an alcoholic and maybe jump off a bridge. Umm, I think I can

take it, yeah.



Reporter: There's no negative vibes or negative feelings here?

Strachan: Apart from yourself, we're all quite positive round here.I'm

going to whack you over the head with a big stick, down negative man,




Reporter: where will Marion Pahars fit into the team line-up?

Strachan: Not telling you! It's a secret.



Reporter: You don't take losing lightly, do you Gordon?

Strachan: I don't take stupid comments lightly either.



Reporter: So, Gordon, in what areas do you think Middlesbrough were

better than you today?

Strachan: What areas? Mainly that big green one out there....
