The press is turning on Souness

Recommended Posts

Flicking through yesterdays and todays press reports it looks like Souness has more or less lost all support.

 

Yesterdays Irish Independent was excoriating. Todays Telegraph not much better.

 

Even Anal O. is more and more turning against him. Todays pieces are a bit tilly-tally.

 

But best described is the current state by John Gibson:

 

"United's manager had challenged his players to "show real passion, real fire in our bellies".

 

What he, you and me got was a damp, insipid excuse of a football match, even if Souness professed himself happy afterwards.

 

A stale pie and a mug of stewed tea would have been more appetising than this 90 minutes."

Isn't Alan Oliver usually a barometer for what Fat Fred is thinking? i.e. He puts out what he is told to from the powers that be. If so then it would appear that Souness really is on the edge.

Who really gives a shit what the irish independent thinks?

Well, I added it because it was more or less a scathing attack on Souness whole career as a manager and so I think it is a reflection on how the press is describing the current state of affair at Newcastle. :icon_lol:

You can guarantee that if Souness wasn't on the brink Anal would be brown nosing him. He's obviously cutting his ties with the Souness In camp ready for the next manager to arrive so he can begin to kiss his arse.

The thing is, the first time I saw this thread, I took it how it was MEANT to be read, and all is well.

 

But since I've seen it that other way... I just can't stop reading it like that.

 

I'm going to go to sleep soon. My head hurts. This isn't helping.

It does indeed, I think it literally means taking the skin off something, very evocative!
