Fat Sam is giving it large, trying anything and everything to get a rise out of NUFC and Rafa Benitez.

Trying to put them off their stride: games are fixed, we’re still ahead, we are gonna be ahead for last game etc etc…

One guy was really good at making remarks and sounding like the media had created the soundbite, when it was nothing of the sort, things deliberately said to inflame the opposition, step forward Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Keegan Rant was purely Ferguson winding up Keegan, a seemingly innocuous comment about people not trying to beat us.

The Benitez interview that kept referring to “FACT”, this was sparked by another classic Sir Alex Ferguson throwaway comment, which was taken and used as an incendiary device…

Sam Allardyce simply hasn’t learnt this talent in trying to capitalise on the needle between himself and Benitez, and he is failing, miserably, why?

Because you, me and Benitez (and the rest of the world) can see straight through it, like a car windscreen.

it’s not even opaque, or translucent, proper see-though! The biggest issue is that no one actually believes this diatribe he is spouting, I don’t even think he believes it himself!

It comes across like a teenage lad trying to be his dad…it’s not big, and it’s not clever.

If he was our manager, (well he WAS, but you know what I mean!) I would be so wishing he would just shut up, cos it cringeworthy.

But he’s not, so keep it up Sam, we all having a massive giggle at your expense,  hope you are still trying to blame someone/something/anything else when the trap door opens…

…and you are stood on it.

Keep the faith.

In Rafa we Trust!
