Cech out Fergie and Redknapp’s pearls of weekend wisdom…

PeterCechAn amazing weekend of action with Ekotto battling Spurs fans, Villa winning at Old Trafford, Arsenal at Anfield and Chelsea booed off the field after they drew with Everton and as usual the great and the good have been imparting their sage like words of wisdom to the great unwashed, but what was actually said and what was actually meant? Find out below;

“I was very surprised to hear the boos from the crowd because this was our first Premier League draw at home all season…So I was really surprised to hear the supporters’ reaction.” Peter Cech (Chelsea) means…

“You really are a bunch of spoilt children at times aren’t you? Our first draw at home all season long and you boo us off? Get some perspective!”

“We lost a lot of the first headers. But it is not an individual responsibility at set-plays. It is collective.” Peter Cech (Chelsea) on how culpable he was for at least two of the three Everton goals means…

“Get off my back right now! It wasn’t my fault they scored the goals they did. It was down to the defensive crapness of my teammates.”

“They are a big club in Europe. They play regularly in Europe and that is a bonus for all players. I have never played in the Champions League and that is a dream for me, of course.” Morten Gamst Pedersen of Blackburn commenting on Celtic’s reported interest in him means…

“Big new contract for Christmas please Sam, otherwise I’m off.”

“Roman Pavlyuchenko wasn’t on the bench today, nor was David Bentley. They’re fit. I left them off the bench There was no incident, Bentley just played in a practice match and didn’t deserve to be on the bench today – nor did Pavlyuchenko. Other kids have worked hard all week to get in the team, put in 110 per cent. I have to send a message out to them as well sometimes.” Harry Redknapp on the omission of two highly paid stars from his Tottenham matchday squad means…

“Stop sulking and grow up.”

“To be honest with you it just gets to the point when adding time on should be taken out of the referees’ hands. That’s all I’m going to say on it. There were two stoppages of two minutes and 20 seconds and five substitutions on top of that and they only played three minutes.” Sir Alex Ferguson commenting on referee Martin Atkinson’s time keeping in the home defeat to Aston Villa, means…

“We lost, but it wasn’t our fault! Everyone knows that despite the fact we didn’t score in 93 minutes of football, we’d have scored at least two in the extra 2 minutes or so I feel should be added on. It’s a conspiracy I tell you! A conspiracy! The referees all hate us!”

“We’re delighted given how both football clubs are run,” Gary Megson on his sides 3-3 draw with mega-rich Manchester City means…

“We run our club properly, as a business should be run and don’t spend money we don’t have unlike some… Karma’s nice sometimes…”

“It was something that has made me stronger, made me a better manager and now I’m looking forward to getting back into club football.” George Burley commenting on his time as Scotland manager means…

“Gizza Job! Go on! I can do that! I can shout at players and pick teams! I can! Honest!”
