Liverpool’s Brendan Rodgers v Wolves Dean Saunders in battle of the bilge
WHILST Liverpool’s Brendan Rodgers continues to talk nonsense, we glance down the leagues to see if any rising star can match the master of bilge. Wolves boss Dean Saunders is making his pitch. Speaking after his side’s 0-2 defeat to Championship leaders Cardiff, Saunders noted:
I have got self-belief. If you said to me ‘Do you want to open the batting for England. They are playing down the road’, I’d say ‘Go on then, give me a bat’.Then I’d get to the bottom step and see the fast bowler marking his run-up and realise I can’t do that. But my first reaction is ‘I will give it a go’.”
He later added:
“But the flick-on comes and Fraizer Campbell runs in and scores and that drives you mad as a coach and makes matters worse…but apart from that they’ve not had any chances in the first half at all.”
Apart from the only goal scored in the first half, Cardiff had no chances.
Great stuff from Saunders, whose highlights package includes this gem:
“We’ve got players here with the knack. You always have an eye for a goal but you can lose your eye of the tiger. I’ve still got my eye for goal now but if you lose your eye of the tiger you are not actually moving to where the ball is going. It is belief and confidence. When you are scoring you have got the eye of the tiger.”
