Premier League managers motivating players to lose Carling Cup matches

October 25, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

With the next round of Carling Cup ties to be played this week, managers of all Premier League teams involved are pulling out the stops to encourage their players not to bother.

Not only do Manchester United have the unenviable duty of travelling to Aldershot, but they also have to find a way to make Sir Alex Ferguson satisfied by losing to their opponents.

“Do we want to win the match? What’s wrong with modern journalists!” Ferguson fumed after being asked about his possible formation and strategy.

“I’d rather be stuck in the middle of a pub full of City supporters than get to the quarter-finals of this competition.”

When we pressed Kenny Dalglish on his thoughts about Liverpool’s trip to Stoke, he replied, “Stoke? Do I have to?

“I’ve got better things to do on a weekday evening than watch 90 minutes of Rory Delap chucking the ball at Peter Crouch’s head.”
