Gordon Strachan has stood down as of lunchtime today as Southampton Manager.
Rupert Lowe is said to be looking hard to find a replacement.

Although the widespread rumour is that it is Hoddle, even though 75% of fans dont want him back.

We will miss things like these interview snippets :(


Some Strachanisms:

Reporter: Welcome to Southampton Football Club. Do you think you are the right man to turn things around?
Strachan: No! I was asked if I thought I was the right man for the job andI said, "no, I think they should have got George Graham because I'm useless!"

Reporter: Is that your best start to a season?
Strachan: Well I've still got a job so it's far better than the Coventry one, that's for sure.

Reporter: Are you getting where you want to be with this team?
Strachan: We're not doing bad. What do you expect us to be like? We were eighth in the league last year, in the cup final and we got into Europe. I don't know where you expect me to get to. Do you expect us to win the Champions League?

Reporter: Gordon, you must be delighted with that result?
Strachan: You're spot on! You can read me like a book.

Reporter: How do you feel about your player Delgado's comments in the Press this week?
Strachan: I've got more important things to think about. I've got a yogurt to finish by today, the expiry date is today. That can be my priority rather than Agustin Delgado.

Reporter: This might sound like a daft question, but you'll be happy to get your first win under your belt, won't you?
Strachan: You're right. It is a daft question. I'm not even going to bother answering that one. It is a daft question, you're spot on there.

Reporter: Bang, there goes your unbeaten run. Can you take it?
Strachan: No, I'm just going to crumble like a wreck. I'll go home, become an alcoholic and maybe jump off a bridge. Umm, I think I can take it, yeah.

Reporter: There's no negative vibes or negative feelings here?
Strachan: Apart from yourself, we're all quite positive round here. I'm going to whack you over the head with a big stick, down negative man, down.

Reporter: where will Marion Pahars fit into the team line-up?
Strachan: Not telling you! It's a secret.

Reporter: You don't take losing lightly, do you Gordon?
Strachan: I don't take stupid comments lightly either.

Reporter: "Gordon, can we have a quick word please?"
Strachan: "Velocity" (then walks off)



Quality. :)

Bye Bye Gordon :(
