Classic Strachan Quotes

Recommended Posts

Flinkers   

To continue Dan's theme, a few quotes from the wee Scotsman...

On Wayne Rooney...

"It's an incredible rise to stardom. At 17 you're more likely to get a

call from Michael Jackson than Sven Goran Eriksson."

Reporter: Gordon, Do you think James Beattie deserves to be in the

England squad?

Strachan: I don't care, I'm Scottish

Reporter: "Gordon, can we have a quick word please?"

Strachan: "Velocity" [walks off]

Reporter: Welcome to Southampton Football Club. Do you think you are the

right man to turn things around?

Strachan: No. I was asked if I thought I was the right man for the job

and I said, "No, I think they should have got George Graham because I'm

useless."

Reporter: Is that your best start to a season?

Strachan: Well I've still got a job, so it's far better than the

Coventry one, that's for sure.

Reporter: Are you getting where you want to be with this team?

Strachan: We're not doing bad. What do you expect us to be like? We were

eighth in the league last year, in the cup final and we got into Europe.

I don't know where you expect me to get to. Do you expect us to win the

Champions League?

Reporter: Gordon, you must be delighted with that result?

Strachan: You're spot on! You can read me like a book.

Strachan: I've got more important things to think about. I've got a

yoghurt to finish by today, the expiry date is today. That can be my

priority rather than Agustin Delgado.

Reporter: This might sound like a daft question, but you'll be happy to

get your first win under your belt, won't you?

Strachan: You're right. It is a daft question. I'm not even going to

bother answering that one. It is a daft question, you're spot on there.

Reporter: Bang, there goes your unbeaten run. Can you take it?

Strachan: No, I'm just going to crumble like a wreck. I'll go home,

become an alcoholic and maybe! jump off a bridge. Umm, I think I can

take it, yeah.

Reporter: There's no negative vibes or negative feelings here?

Strachan: Apart from yourself, we're all quite positive roundhere. I'm

going to whack you over the head with a big stick, down negative man,

down.

Reporter: where will Marion Pahars fit into the team line-up?

Strachan: Not telling you! It's a secret.

Reporter: You don't take losing lightly, do you Gordon?

Strachan: I don't take stupid comments lightly either.

Reporter: So, Gordon, in what areas do you think Middlesbrough were

better than you today?

Strachan: What areas? Mainly that big green one out there....

Reporter: "What is your impression of Jermaine Pennant?"

Strachan: "I don't do impressions"

Reporter: Did you enjoy that Gordon?

Strachan: Aye, I did - so much so that I'm going home to watch it on

ceefax (walks off)

The world looks a totally different place after two wins. I can even

enjoy watching Blind Date or laugh at Noel's House Party.

Reporter: So Gordon, any changes then ?

Strachan: Naw, still 5ft 6, ginger hair, and a big nose!

Reporter: So, Gordon, any plans for Europe this year?

Strachan: Aye, me and the wife quite fancy Spain in August.

Gary Lineker: So Gordon, if you were English, what formation would you

play?

Gordon Strachan: If I was English I'd top myself!

lol. Some classic quotes in there. Don't really like the man but his post-match interviews are always worth a watch.

yoghurt to finish by today, the expiry date is today. That can be my

priority rather than Agustin Delgado.
