'...John - just beacuase Arry said something does not mean he meant it - ask the Pompey and Saints fans! ...'
Really? So you think 'arry purposely wanted 4th or less, so that Levy could sack him? You're not seriously saying that 'arry didn't try to get CL football are you? If that's the case, why encourage the team pre Christmas. Why not sabotage them then? Can I ask two things - what would have been the benefit to 'arry to NOT have achieved CL football? What would have been the benefit to 'arry to HAVE achieved CL football?
