Yesterday we looked at the misguided sports writers who incorrectly predicted doom and gloom for Manchester United this season.
Whilst many predicted that United would finish second some were stupid enough to predict we wouldn’t even finish in the top 4! The list which came from the BBC was compiled by the some of the English games biggest names so of course it didn’t include that moron Piers Morgan.
I tend to avoid Morgan and his infantile ranting on Twitter he annoys me and his attempts at humour always seem off the mark but nowhere near off the mark as his misguided predictions for this season.
Back in August in the Daily Mail asked him (haven’t a clue why!) for some prediction for the season and here they are:
MANCHESTER UNITED will miss a top-four position for the first time in decades. Putting aside my usual detestation of all things United, I actually believe this.
Based on current squads, I think Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal are stronger. And United clearly have serious financial restraints.
What I don’t understand is why Sir Alex is so keen to support publicly the tightfisted owners who have wrecked his winning streak.
Miss the top 4 huh? He put his prediction down to the strength of our squad, I must have missed when our team, who missed out on the title by one point last season, suddenly became rubbish! Must have missed the World Cup and Javier Hernandez and I bet he would be swinging from the chandeliers ranting about Smalling if Arsenal had signed him. Did he forget that managers amongst other things also play their part? The added influence of Sir Alex was always going to play a part so there was no way in hell United were finishing 4th.
Here are some other gems from the moron:
REAL MADRID will win the Champions League.
In the same analysis he proceded to refer to players like Raul and Guti as ‘creaking old showboaters’, please someone tell me why anyone asks or cares about his opinions on football?!
LIVERPOOL will have a very good season under Roy Hodgson.
Judging by what he did with Fulham’s fairly average squad, imagine what he’s going to do with the likes of Gerrard and Torres.
This is too easy so I’ll leave you to this one.
ARSENE WENGER will end his trophy drought. I know, I know, I’m biased. But I have been very impressed with the boss’s close season activity… Up front, I like the look of Marouane Chamakh, who is tall, strong, fast, skilful, good in the air, a lethal finisher, and looks like Ronaldo’s slightly prettier younger brother.
FA Cup – Nope,
Carling Cup – Nope
Premier League – Nope
Champions League – Nope
I wonder how excited he was when Wenger said he was looking at his side doing the quadruple back in February!
Thanks to punitrajpara for making me aware of this and thanks to Jeremy Clarkson for living the dream and punching the loathsome toad!
