It has been a while since Gilesy unveiled another of his litany of footballing sean-fhocail.
In truth, this is a body of work notable for its unfamiliarity to anyone but Gilesy himself.
Although Today FM marvel Tom Tyrrell remains the undisputed king in this area.
There’s not a modern footballer who doesn’t live by Tom’s motto: “There’s an old saying in football that he who scores next when it’s 3-1 can influence the outcome of the game.”
But Gilesy too has plenty of previous. Some meandering goalkeeping from Scott Carson once prompted:
“There’s an old saying in football – you can always go forward but you can’t go back.”
And slack Blackburn defending for Milner’s opener on Saturday inspired the latest in the canon:
“There’s an old saying in football – if the opposition fall asleep then you take advantage of it.”
Of course there is Johnny.
