You know what I think, defeats from rivals only do limited damage, the toxic poison comes from within. Internecine strife, Bear on Bear action, can rip Newco apart.
I don’t know what Lee Wallace and our old pal Kenny Miller said to Graeme Murty on Sunday, but if it was along the lines of ‘You are out of your depth, incapable of operating at this level and exposed for what you are’, they would be correct. That doesn’t make them right, though.
Speaking truth to the boss sounds like a good idea but commonly all it does is isolate you, weaken the boss and make everyone’s job more difficult. Kenny Miller reached the Champions League knock out stages under Gordon Strachan, he knows what a good manager looks like. Along with the rest of the world, he knows Murty is vulnerable and out of his depth, but it is not ethically, or tactically, a good thing to expose his vulnerability.
Whatever Miller and Wallace said was almost certainly right, but ethically it is up there with the solicitor-cum-tax advisor-cum-porn star-cum-convict Paul Baxendale Walker, who was Sir David Murray’s chief architect at Oldco and who faced a bankruptcy court hearing this week.
What an absolute shower.
Loved the statements yesterday. ‘We’re so upset we are going to be quiet’, is Pythonesque. It sits alongside ‘I fart in your general direction’ as an absurd masterpiece.
Just brilliant that another fan group caught the zeitgeist by telling fans “Millions have been ploughed into the club by the current board”. So let’s not be hastily apportioning blame to Dave and Co. I hope neither group realise how much fun they give.
