Einstein on West Ham and Zola
All Zola's critics should consider the sayings of Albert Einstein. It takes a genius to understand a genius it seems. I give you the following:
"Imagination is more important than knowledge." Just imagine we are 4th from top and Spector really is a Premiership left back! See, you feel better already!
"I want to know God's thoughts; the rest are details." The Premiership table? Mere details!
"The hardest thing in the world to understand is Zola's tactics." (OK, I adapted it slightly. The original was income tax!)
"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." You see, really Spector can play on the left, and Diamanti belongs on the right!
"I never think of the future. It comes soon enough." So why plan with your next opponents in mind?
"Sometimes one pays most for the things one gets for nothing." A reference to Dyer's contributions? Or explaining why we pay Zola and Clarke so much to lose games?
"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new." That's why we allowed Mido to take that penalty!
"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." Yep, that explains Zola's tactics. Bemusing!
"Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen." Yep, by 18 I had this funny idea that I was right footed. So did Spector! Foolish boy! Zola knows better!
Zola's message for Sullivan: "If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z. Work is x; y is play; and z is keeping your mouth shut."
"Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence." Shut up all you critics of Zola, you mediocrities!
"Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts." The lads have done well despite totaling just 34 points!
E = mc2
In Einstein we trust!
