Is poor Karren Brady confused? Apparently she was bloody sure Avram was being pushed out today, with Martin O'Neill ushered through the Upton Park managerial revolving door. But lo and behold, there's not yet any sign of motormouth O'Neill and the lugubrious Grant is still croaking as if he remains the resident Toad of Boleyn Hall.
Look at this for a juicy quotation from Karren! "Nothing has happened. I don't know where the rumours have come from but nothing has happened." That almost sounds as if she is out of the loop herself for the time being, feeding on scraps of information herself. No statement that "Avram Grant is our manager and Avram Grant will remain our manager", just "Nothing has happened." Perhaps her statement was a polite way of saying, "Nothing has happened and I'm fcuked if I know why nothing has happened." Nothing will come of nothing dear Karren. Speak again! All these double negatives? Is that an insight into Karren's state of confusion perhaps?
Poor Karren, how can she be expected to work like this? She has a newspaper column to produce remember!
