Hehe I like these football funnies. I remember Gordon Strachan having a few great ones. He was asked if he could handle the pressure at Celtic and he replied "No, i'm just going to crumble like a wreck. I'll go home, become an alcoholic and maybe jump off a bridge." KING of sarcasm haha. Ive got a weekly english football hub going if you're interested, check it out if ya like. Includes random stats, a bit of opinion and goals/players of the week.
