sempuki Posted November 17, 2006 Share Posted November 17, 2006 Shamelessly taken from another site: Snippets from The Clark / Oliver Talk-In from last night -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Souness – Oliver said he was the man “who got him the sack” and that Souness refers to him as the “wanker form The Chronicle” – maybe we do have something in common with Souness after all! Oliver labelled Souness and his backroom staff as “fraudsters”. Luque – He took a hammering off both Oliver and Clark, surprisingly. Oliver says that Roeder has been extremely patient with him and has given him chances to prove his worth. When pointed out that Luque scored the winner at Palermola and was then subsequently dropped, Oliver came back with the remark that he was the worst player on the pitch that night! Oliver was also adamant that we paid £12 million for him, rather than the reported £9.5 million (so where did the £2.5 million go?). Bernard – Clark said he has been woeful for the reserves and on his form is nowhere near good enough for the 1st team squad. Terry Mac – According to Oliver, Terry Mac would be the 1st to admit that he is not a coach (Jesus!) and is there to simply "gee up the troops". He apparently proved his worth at Watford when he wound up Boothroyd on the touchline (Oliver then had a few stupid digs at Boothroyd's coaching ability). New signings – Oliver says we have deals virtually done for a left back and a 6 foot 4 Centre Half who currently plays in The Premiership – both will go through in Janaury. Clark blamed Chelsea for our failure to sign Bridge in August, stating that Kenyon called us at 11.10pm on Deadline Day to say the Cole deal had gone through and we could have Bridge. We had apparently agreed personal terms but could net get him up here in time for the medical (great planning as ever!). Nobby – Oliver reckons that he refused to travel to Boro when Roeder told him he was a Sub. Clarky – He is Officially reserve team manager but sometimes allowed to work with 1st team players due to having such a small squad. He said that Liverpool agreed a fee with us in 1997 but he was never told about and then went to the mackems. He also reckons that we agreed a fee of £3.5 million to bring him back in 2000 but Sir Bobby changed his mind and instead opted for Bassedas. Clark also had a dig at the young’uns coming through, saying most lacked hunger due to the money they earned. Not forgetting Oliver's quote of the night - "You don't want foreigners in charge of our club man", in response to me telling him that my managerial preference in the summer was Hitzfeld.
