Today’s statement by Fat Sam has set us thinking along the same lines here at the CultFootball headquarters. While we have historically ranged in the high double–low triple digit daily readership, we’re of such quality that a more monied institution with better resources would 1. be lucky to have us, and 2. increase our hit rate thousands of times over.
What inspiration is it you ask? Allardyce’s “better than this” comments that were surely made from a pub stool:
“I’m not suited to Bolton or Blackburn, I would be more suited to Inter or Real Madrid,” Allardyce said. “It wouldn’t be a problem to me to go and manage those clubs because I would win the double or the league every time. Give me Manchester United or Chelsea and I would do the same, it wouldn’t be a problem. It’s not where I’m suited to, it’s just where I’ve been for most of the time.”
Well touch me in the morning, this guy is really on to something.
