Bloody nerve. Some Lembit Opik lookalike twat on the BBC, talking about the Olympic Stadium bid, has just said that Tottenham are like Julia Roberts whilst West Ham resemble Bridget Jones! Presumably he is talking about Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman - an expensive tart willing to drop her knickers for anybody with a big enough cheque book! Mind you, when it comes to the crunch, the Cockyfools also have a touch of the Tinkerbells about them!
And West Ham, as Bridget Jones? Well how about a few quotes?
Sullivan to Levy regarding a possible ground share: "Thank you, Daniel, that is very good to know. But if staying here means working within 10 yards of you, frankly, I'd rather have a job wiping Saddam Hussein's arse".
Karren Brady on answering the phone, "Karren Brady, wanton sex goddess, with a very bad man between her thighs... Avram.. Hi."
Redknapp and Parker in conversation:
Redknapp: "Come on Scotty, we belong together - you, me, poor little skirt. If I can't make it with you then I can't make it with anyone."
Scotty: "That's not a good enough offer for me."
West Ham's motto: "It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces."
Curbishley on signing Faubert: "I like a player with an arse you can park a bike in and balance a pint of beer on."
Avram and Sidwell in discussion:
Avram: "Look, are you coming to Upton Park or not?"
Sidwell : "Um, not."
Avram: "No fucking room, anyway."
Sullivan after hearing of Tottenham's interest in Parker: "Fuck 'em. Fuck the lot of 'em. Tell 'em they can stick fucking Leevis up their fucking asses." (Word perfect from the film!)
Hang on, is that Faubert wearing Bridget's bloomers?
