Jamie divides and conquers Spain

Published On March 24, 2011 | By Danger Here | Quotes 2010-2011

WORLDS APART

On a weekend when Phil Thompson described La Liga as SPL2, the main surprise here is Jamie didn’t say ‘literally’:

“Real Madrid aren’t in the same league as Barcelona.”

 

SAFETY FIRST

Whatever you say about Jamie, at least he’s not afraid to make the hard calls:

“I wouldn’t rule Barcelona out against Shakhtar.”

 

HARD TO DIGEST

Mind you, against all odds Redknapp’s unique style seems to have rubbed off on some Spaniards, judging by this piece of commentary on Radio Marca:

“He’s literally just eaten the fourth official.”

 

 

MOD CONS

Alex Ferguson’s touchline ban should prove little obstacle to Manchester United with Paul Merson dragging us kicking and screaming into the twentieth century:

“In this day and age they have walkie-talkies and telephones.”

 

EYES UP

But credit to Merse, a night down the town hall is a lot livelier when he’s in charge:

“I think it’s literally throw the balls up the air and see what comes down. It’s a bit like Bingo, Jeff.”

 

BIT OF A STRETCH

Particularly when Merse brings along his favourite contortionist:

“You don’t want to bite your nose off to spite your face.”

 

NEARLY MAN

What Glenn Hoddle gives with one hand, he takes away with the other:

“Scott Parker has it all, he’s not an elegant player…”

All except elegance maybe.
BLIND FAITH

Kevin Moran on the MUTV, sorry TV3, coverage of United-Marseilles:

“This is unbelievable, believe me…”

 

SAY HELLO, WAVE GOODBYE

Rob Shepherd is convinced the Arsenal captain is about to take French Leave:

“I think Fabregas is fantastic, but it could well be bon jour.”

 

HOLDING HIS HANDS UP

As Craig Burley prepared to deliver his verdict on Mario Balotelli’s sending off against Dynamo Kiev, there was time for a rare moment of candid introspection from the Scot:

“I’m going to give you stupidity of the highest order…”

 

MUENCHEN GLAD

After Goran  Pandev condemned them to a Champions League exit, Will Downing watched masochistic Munich relish their own misfortune:

“It’s pure pain, it’s schadenfreude for Bayern. They’re out.”

 

SQUEAKY BUM TIME

Mark Saggers may well have got to the bottom of Arsenal’s problems:

“Do you think with Arsene Wenger a really big number two might help him?”

 

FLOORED

Hopefully Bournemouth won’t pull the rug out from under Lee Bradbury:

“I’ve got my feet under the carpet and finally found my feet.”

 

LEGLESS

In John Hartson’s eyes, retirement comes with a heavy price:

“His legs have gone and it’s time to hang them up.”

 

HUDSON VIRGILANT

Ray Hudson detects Liverpool trojan  Kyrgiakos:

“The Greek comes in like a big wooden horse and he gets caught.”

Spotter’s badges to  sidlowe,  bootsybah,  lordbrokit,  liverayhudson
