Gordon Strachan - comic genius

This bloke gives the best interviews!

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, can we have a quick word please?"
Strachan: "Velocity" [walks off]

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: "Gordon, what will you take from today?"
Strachan: I've got more important things to think about. I've got a
yoghurt to finish, the expiry date is today.

Reporter: 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.

Reporter: There's no negative vibes or negative feelings here?
Strachan: Apart from yourself, we're all quite positive round here. So I'm going to whack you over the head with a big stick - down negative man, down.

Reporter: Welcome to Southampton Football Club. Do you think you are the right man to turn things around?
Strachan: No, I think they should have got George Graham because I'm useless.

Reporter: Where will Marion Pahars fit into the team line-up?
Strachan: Not telling you! It's a secret.

Reporter: "What is your impression of Jermaine Pennant?"
Strachan: "I don't do impressions"

Reporter: So Gordon, any changes then?
Strachan: Naw, still 5ft 6, ginger and a big nose!

Gary Lineker: So Gordon, if you were English, what formation would you play?
Strachan: If I was English I'd top myself

Reporter: Gordon, Do you think James Beattie deserves to be in the England squad?
Strachan: I dont care, I'm Scottish

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.

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: You don't take losing lightly, do you Gordon?
Strachan: I don't take stupid comments lightly either.

When he left Southampton, he announced he was leaving at the end of the season...... But left before the seasons end.
On leaving the So'ton training ground in his car he stopped to talk to a Sky reporter.....

Reporter: "Gordon, We all know you was leaving at the end of the season, but why have you left early?
Strachan: (Window wound down, engine running), "Because it's sunny and it's friday" (Car zooms off).

LOL! He may be Scottish, but he's a complete legend!


comic genius is correct.

Examples of unintentional football comic genius:

I'd like to play for an Italian club, like Barcelona.
-Mark Draper

You've got to believe that you're going to win, and I believe we'll win the World Cup until the final whistle blows and we're knocked out.
-Peter Shilton

Without being too harsh on David Beckham, he cost us the match.
-Ian Wright

I'm as happy as I can be - but I have been happier.
-Ugo Ehiogh

I couldn't settle in Italy - it was like living in a foreign country.
-Ian Rush

I always used to put my right boot on first, and then obviously my right sock.
-Barry Venison

Strachan is a tosser.

Some of the lines were good thoug

Reporter: "Gordon, We all know you was leaving at the end of the season, but why have you left early?
