    Quiz - Excuses, excuses

    Post by RRC on Thu 30 Oct 2014, 11:00 pm

    You couldn't make it up . . . but they could

    Can you tell which manager, player or club dreamt up these excuses for losing?

    1. The balls were too bouncy.
    2. The players don't like the grey strip. They find it difficult to pick each other out. We had to change the strip.
    3. The wool shirts were too heavy.
    4. There were no ball-boys in the second half, something typical of small teams.
    5. I was getting carried away playing Tekken II and Tomb Raider for hours on end.
    6. Playing on Friday evening rather than Saturday afternoon cost us the title.
    7. The boardroom is haunted by the ghost by Lord Nelson.
    8. We played very well in the first half, but maybe it was too cold in the second half.

    To check the answers, click the spoiler . . .

    Spoiler:
    ANSWERS
    1. Kenny Dalglish, manager of Newcastle, after losing 1-3 to Stevenage in the 1998 FA Cup.
    2. Sir Alex Ferguson. Man Utd were losing 0-3 to Southampton, they changed strips at half time and lost 1-3 in the PL in 1996.
    3. Emlyn Hughes explaining Liverpool's Cup Final defeat to Arsenal.
    4. Jose Mourinho, manager of Real Madrid, after losing to small team Barcelona.
    5. David James after three howlers led to Liverpool losing to Newcastle.
    6. Alan Hansen explaining how Liverpool lost the title to Arsenal.
    7. Somebody at Blackpool FC who prefers to remain anonymous.
    8. Pellegrini after Man City failed to hold on to a 2-0 lead.
