Taking the Mick
Mick McCarthy scratching his head
Poor old Sunderland. As vociferous and passionate as their supporters are they are destined to be relegated with the worst ever Premiership record, beating the previous record set by...Sunderland (last time they went down).
I can remember that season vividly if for no other reason than this picture that was circulated at the time of Comical Ali's 15 minutes of fame
This season Sunderland have won 2 out of 28 league matches and been knocked out of the cup by the Mighty Bees of Brentford. They have scored 19 goals thus far compared with Chelsea who have scored 56 goals.
When mentioning Mick, it would be remiss of me not to blog the infamous McCarthy/Keane bust-up of the 2002 World Cup which concluded with Keane saying:
"Who the f*ck do you think you are, having meetings about me? You were a crap player, you are a crap manager. The only reason I have any dealings with you is that somehow you are manager of my country and you're not even Irish, you English c*nt. You can stick it up your boll*cks."
I love that quote even as anatomically incongruous at it is.
See ya, wouldn't wanna be ya.
