Giovanni sent to Hull and rest of this week’s quick one-twos.
The odds were against Brighton assistant Dean White:
“We scored three goals at home, and ninety-nine times out of ten that’ll be enough.”
Could the Andy Reid affair be one battle too far for Eamo?
“Tell them John, it’s outrageous. It means more if you say it. They think I’m mad.”
Customary top punditry from Alan Shearer on MOTD:
“There were terrific players on both sides, and I include Wigan in that.”
Ray Clemence reckons Tottenham are leaking goals from everywhere:
“They are conceding more goals than you would expect them to and they are letting them in at the other end.”
And Jeff Stelling sticks the knife in:
“Some good news at last for Spurs fans, Blackpool are building a covered stand for away supporters.”
Giovanni believes the Lord works in mysterious ways:
“I believe it was God’s direction when he sent me to Hull.”
But Stelling has another theory:
“Is God dyslexic? Did he get a letter wrong?”
