Just listen to him!
"It was a penalty but the referee didn't see it. It could change the game but we don't want to complain," Grant said. "Manchester City were a better team than us, especially when we lost seven players that usually play. The boys are trying, that is what is important to us."
Well it may have been a penalty but does anybody believe that would have made any difference, beyond forcing Man City out of second gear? If so, where do you buy your blinkers? Did we earn a penalty? No. Did we deserve a penalty? No. Did we deserve to take anything out of the game? No. Did we even deserve our consolation goal? No. Shut up Grant you pillock. City scored three, we scored once. So, at best, the penalty would have helped our goal difference!
And as for,"we don't want to complain", how can he say that in the same breath as we should have had a penalty and we have lots of injuries? What a pillock!
And are the boys really trying? Trying our patience yes, but trying as in battling like Blackpool's players battle? Well I've seen precious little evidence of it!
Today was a real wake up call. We were poor at Sunderland last week and even poorer today. We are losing touch with the clubs above us and sinking fast. Grant is making excuses just like Zola. I want to hear, "That was crap and unacceptable" not, "The boys are trying, and that's what is important to us." Bugger trying, it's the points that are important to us. And a good starting point might be demanding that the "boys" fess up and begin playing like men!
