Oh dear oh dear, Doctor Evil doesn't take kindly to criticism does he? With his evil master plan to recruit Hell Hadji frustrated by the blogging guardian angels, Sam Pot is drawing the line at complaints about introducing Year Zero football to the Khmer Rouge and Blue.
Allardyce exploded: "I don’t know why some people moan about winning when all this team did before was lose. It doesn’t make any sense to me. I’ve been in this game all my life and not for the life of me would I expect a football fan to accept playing well and losing rather than playing well and winning, but if you are unable to play well then just win. Haven’t met one yet and I think it is all bollocks.”
Of course, what Sam Pot fails to understand is that it is possible to win whilst remaining true to the values and traditions of the club. We are, after all, a division down, playing against weak opposition, so we could turn on the style. Newcastle and West Brom played proper football and secured promotion. so did Blackpool. And so did Swansea. And despite Warnock, QPR played some decent stuff too apparently whilst winning this division. And Norwich weren't a long ball side. And, it should be noted, Southampton are top playing a refreshing brand of fast, direct, passing football - fashioned by Pardew.
But Sam Pot won't have it. We have to go back to Year Zero to win. The only way is the Sam Way. So prepare the killing fields, the Kymer Rouge and Blue are going to bludgeon their way to victory!
