Did somebody jump the gun over O'Neill?


That's looking increasingly likely. How's this for a scenario? Meetings took place and O'Neill indicated he would take the job, subject to sorting out a few details. Then, alerted to our interest, maybe another club made contact. Maybe somebody at Liverpool put in a call?

"Look Martin, no promises, but if we lose against Everton tomorrow, Kenny's bubble will be burst. Hold on 24 hours son. The Liverpool job could be yours."

Now, if you were O'Neill, which job would you prefer?

So you're criticising the rashness of the O'Neill announcement and the speculative rumour and then imagining up in your barely evolved mind that Liverpool phoned him. The irony of a man disliking rumour then starting his own is so thick you could spread it on a bagle.
This little presupposition is a waste of time and digital space.

Hammersfan said...

Maybe, maybe not. But it provoked you into wasting more digital space! How big is the digital universe I wonder? Will we one day exhaust it? In millennia to come, will people stumble upon my blog as they investigate the years immediately following the Internet Big Bang and puzzle about this strange game called football.

Imagine, essays on "The Origins of the Digital Universe" quoting my ramblings on West Ham United. And in these essays you may receive a footnote yourself. "And there were those, ill equipped to produce anything themselves, who wasted their lives leaving pointless insults on the blogs of others. These drones, attracted to the nectar of the blog writer, the mighty one known as Hammersfan or fanno for short in this case, became slaves to the Game, forever trapped in orbit by its gravitational pull, circling this mighty body in the digital universe. So much digital detrius circling this digital gas giant!"

; } The Game. It may be timeless! Eternal!

I have no doubt that Brady is the jumper, and that O'Neill was furious about it. I would not be surprised if O'Neill now gives an ultimatum that he will only join if Brady is gone.

That would be special, wouldn't it?

Hammersfan said...

Would you rather be in bed with Brady or O'Neill? So Karren's going nowhere then!

USA Dave said...

HF, I don't fancy Brady one bit. Her face always looks a bit crooked to me. Goes along with her biz dealings.

Do you think they realize what bufoons they look like? Honestly. I grew up in Manhattan with all of the turmoil surrounding the New York Yankees. And the revolving door managers/coaches of the Knicks, Rangers, and Jets. I've seen a LOT of stupidity. But this tops it all. They have ruined their reign as owners in just one year, and I have little faith they can recover. Who on earth would work for them? It was doubtful before yesterday, now it's a funeral.

What now? What will happen to us?

Hammersfan said...

But "soccer" management is a drug mate. Somebody will want the job. I would take it! Give me a decent coaching team and I'd get us out of trouble! And I'd back myself to bed Brady into the bargain!

O'Neill is a fcking hypocrite for holding negotiations for a job whilst the incumbent manager is still in the job, if he wants the job he can make it clear to the owners that he'll negotiate only once they sack the current manager (rumours are that Allardyce did just that). The same O'Neill who went ballistic over Steve Gerrard stating that he would want Gareth Barry to play alongside him at Liverpool, talking about how Gerrard and Liverpool showed him no "respect", the same little prick is now scheming with that slag Brady to undermine a man still not relieved of his managerial duties. He is a snivelling little cnut of a man.

USA Dave said...

I don't call it Soccer, just so you know HF. And I refer to the NFL as "egg toss".

I don't think one decent manager would accept the job anymore. Nor do I believe SuGoBrady have the capacity to find someone in the Football League with the acumen to manage at the top.

Although we won't be in the EPL for quite awhile so I guess it doesn't matter.

Hammersfan said...

Glad to hear it mate. Now, if you could educate the rest of the nation...Mind you this EPL business sounds a bit NFL to me. The Prem is bad enough! I'd go back to first, second, third and fourth divisions, if only for the sake of the record books! Bah humbug!

USA Dave said...

I gotta tell you, HF, the USA has definitely started to drink the Kool Aid. We have 3 networks devoted to Football, not to mention ESPN covering the EPL. The Champions League Final was on Fox Network terrestrial. Regular old TV, and with their own crew. They didn't just grab the Sky feed.

And most tellingly, at my kids school the other day I saw a Chelsea shirt, a Barcelona shirt, and a Madrid shirt.

Our game is cool here. That's how it starts.

USA Dave, you are right - the 'saviours' of the club will not attract any quality manager anyway. They talk about 'love for the club' and their "10 point plan/promise" etc - all a load of old tosh. They are the Ratners of football, Brady is their sacker-in-chief - suprised she hasn't suggested her husband for the managers job yet, in her 'Sun' column...as for the players, apart from a couple of Academy potentials, they are mediocre,past their best by a long way, or have had any ability /confidence destroyed by incompetence at the top managerial/ownership level, if you were a player seeing Dyer pull wages for 3 years for nothing, it wouldn't really inspire you. So Parker's running about - mostly to very little purpose - can't cover up the stupidity and incompetence any longer.

Sorry if I was rude with my other message and thanks for not publishing it as I was more annoyed than I should have been. You are an old timer, I believe you call it a Luddite... move with the times and get funky. EPL sounds good.

USA Dave said...

Uhhhh. Either there is another USA Dave at 15:26 or someone for some reason felt like being me. I'm not that exciting, trust me. Home with the kids to day for school holiday here.

Hammersfan said...

Yeah I know mate. I didn't publish his first attempt. It was a truly pathetic attempt to much stir.

USA Dave said...

Thanks HF. Still don't understand what happened, but I guess it's much ado about nothing.

Hammersfan said...

He does it with others. It is nothing personal. He hates how successful the site is and desperately seeks to undermine others by posting in their name or trying to foster conflict between myself and others. It is very sad.

You lose!

Hammersfan said...

Still trapped by the Game I see. Which, of course, confirms you lose yet again! So sad. So pathetic. So addicted.

If you say so...... I type at 85 words a minute and don't do a lot at work - so I suspect I have a lot more spare time than you.

I ain't going nowhere, unfortunately for you.

Oh I before you come out with one of your very obvious "quips" I run a company that turns over 500K a year and my staff do a lot of work on my behalf.

Hammersfan said...

You can type as many words as you like mate. Unless I let them through, they are absolutely redundant. And the fact that I let them through shows you are losing the Game. Day after day after day after day after day. Still don't get it do you? So, what's the company name?

Anonymous said...

Company name? ha - actually there's two 12.5% growth on one and the second 49% growth... which isn't bad as last year there was a lot of R&D, this year is payback time! I wouldn't be here if you weren't such a hater and so negative. Anyway I'll solider on, something has to give, hopefully it'll be you.

Hammersfan said...

Two companies now? Names? You could have free advertising on here!
