Rovers boss Sam Allardyce is adding fuel to the fire before tomorrow's game at Anfield - claiming that opposing boss Rafa Benitez loves to moan!
I think all Premier League bosses love a good one sided whinge but lets face it - Rafa, Fergie and Wenger always get the more high profile moan dut to who they manage.
Heck even Harry Redknapp had a good moan last weekend about the (completely incorrect) Wilson Palacios sending off. Of course he forgot to mention his team wouldn't of scored all afternoon had it not been for a shockingly dubious penalty but that's neither here nor there apparently.
Anyway, this looks like mind games - judge for yourself.
Sam, speaking to Sky Sports, said - 'You can`t help him whingeing and moaning, can you? He loves it. Rafa is his own man and he`ll continue to manage in his own way — whether that is his stubbornness or his determination, I don`t know. We all have our quirks.
'I don`t give a damn what they say before, during or after a game, but there have been occasions when I have shoved it on the noticeboard for the players and it has made a difference for them.
'It`s great when a manager moans about the way my teams play, but it doesn`t worry me because I would rather have a big manager moaning about me and our tactics after we`ve got a result against them than have them saying what a lovely team we are after they`ve beaten us 3-1.
'You`d be foolish taking on Sir Alex, because he knows every trick in the book.'
That is either a make or break interview right there.
