What a phenomenal waste of money! Those who still seek to defend Zola should be required to fund a statue of McCarthy in the foyer of the Mcdonald's franchise at the new Olympic Stadium, for it was the bumbling Italian who pressed for McCarthy to be signed, on Clarke's recommendation, insisting he was the man to keep us in the Prem.
Three starts later, with no goals scored, McBenni has been duped into eating his contract after Sullivan coated it in curry sauce and stuffed it inside half a loaf, treating the tubby tosser to his favourite Bunny Chow calorie accumulator.
How much has McBenni cost us? God only knows! He was signed for £2million plus and was on wages in excess of £40,000 per week so the ex Blackburn man has piled on the pounds in every sense of the term since his misguided signing! What a waste! Or actually, what a WAIST!
Come on Stani and all you Zola fans, organise that statue. We could dress McBenni in a Ronald costume - he played as if he was wearing big red clown's feet - and record on the plinth, "He came, he saw and he banqueted!"
