Quote Happy?

I seem to be restricting my blogs to this more and more but the whole process of procrastination does dig up some gems:

Following another defeat, Crystal Palace manager Smith pointed to Latvian goalkeeper Alex Kolinko who had been in tears after the game. 'I made up a story about him. I said he came from the poorest mountain village in Latvia where he had to fight bears when he was eight. I said his grandparents had been shot by the Nazis, his mother had died of cancer and his sister was raped by a gang of mountain rebels. But he never shed a single tear because he was strong and brave. Then I told them that one month playing behind our defence had turned him into a blubbering wreck! The players didn't know what to say. Except Clinton Morrison – he said, "It's a shame about his sister".'

I'll add that this was a time when we were a bit shite. We're getting better now!
