Ray Hughton is a self aggrandizing prig at the best of times. While no one in Irish football was particularly keen to get involved in finding a new manager after the whole Steve Staunton fiasco, it was our man Houghton that stepped forward. ‘Me, me, me, meeeeeee’, like some 8 year old half whizzing itself wanting the teacher to desperately pick him.
The self appointed ‘King Maker’ – oh yeah – the Irish press was well and truly wooed to death by this footballing Goliath. Johnny Giles and Liam Brady were very much involved but it was Houghton’s puffed up pigeon chest and know it all box head that led the charge.
“A joint stadium is something the clubs might have to look at. It’s holding back both Liverpool and Everton.
“Manchester United get 75,000 every game, and Arsenal apparently make £1million every home match. You relate that to Everton and Liverpool and they’re bringing in nowhere near that.
“It’s something Everton and Liverpool might have to look at. I know the fans want their own identities, but needs must and that’s the position they’re in compared to their rivals. Something has to give.”
So is this the most stupid thing you’ve heard this week?
