"McAllister to Blame" According to Unnamed Player
« on: April 02, 2011, 02:15:02 AM »
so say The Sun, who are quoting a 'well known international.'

Quote
GARY McALLISTER is the real cause of the crisis engulfing Aston Villa - according to one of the club's top stars.
The well-known international claimed it is coach McAllister and NOT boss Gerard Houllier who is responsible for the conflict.

And the star fears the Midlands giants face relegation and a summer exodus unless the Frenchman gets a grip on his No 2.

The Villa ace insisted: "It is McAllister more than Houllier to blame for most of the trouble.

"The manager tends to stay in the background, leaving a lot of the day-to-day stuff with the players to McAllister. So he's calling the shots a lot - and he's the one who's upset a lot of the players with his attitude.

"There's a load of petty new rules and it's really bad, really counter-productive.

"And if Houllier wants to save his job, he needs to sort McAllister out - and quick - before it's too late for him and for us.

"The mood's very strained and if we're not careful it could end up very badly. It's unbelievable we're talking about relegation and if it happens, a lot of the top players, me included, will want out."

Kind of bears out what Mark Kelly was saying about GH not wanting to be involved in the day to day business, closer to a DOF rather than a manager.

Lousy timing though, just what we didn't need going into a crucial game. Which I suppose is the idea.

Utter bollocks. Why even give it the time of day?

Negativity should be banned today.

 Yes, strange - that 'negativity should be barred' when all the stuff coming from the club and the  interviews,tweets and comments elsewhere from all the players are all positive. And with a really good interview with Gary Mc on the BBC yesterday. (posted)
What negativity?

This is how some little oik fills his column

a total news w*****.

Actually, Left Side, I smell 'let's wind the villa up.' 

But we are surfing on the waves of negativity...

How can we actually find out if McAllister is the problem or not. He might be right but the player doesn't like it.

Todays Sun also has a topless model on page 3, adorned with toffees and  Everton scarf strategically placed.

 Our busty beauty Kelly Moyes from Formby enjoys volunteering at her local pet rescue centre and also wants to save the Brazilian rainforest. The Sun says "phworrrrr darlin', good job our reporter lent to you his scarf or we could see if your Brazilian!"

The fact that McAllister wasn't Houllier's first choice, coupled with his rather indifferent record as both a manager and a coach, would make it rather surprising if it was just the one player pointing an accusing finger in his direction.

And to think, a year ago people were questioning what exactly John Robertson and Steve Walford did.

'Top players' who have managed to play so poorly that we are in this mess?  I do hope that this is an attempt to wind fans up and that nobody actually said this.

source  (srs, srs)
n.
1. The point at which something springs into being or from which it derives or is obtained.
2. The point of origin, such as a spring, of a stream or river. See Synonyms at origin.
3. One that causes, creates, or initiates; a maker.
4. One, such as a person or document, that supplies information: A reporter is only as reliable as his or her sources.


I particularly like point 4.

This 'story' is utter bollocks.  Next....
