Sam rant at Rafa part 134

Sam rant at Rafa part 134

Clearly there is no love lost between Sam Allardyce and Rafa Benitez - both are stubborn men and love to gloat but Sam may have taken this to a new level with this little beauty of a rant.

It will certainly light the flames ahead of tomorrow.

Big Sam, speaking to Sky Sports said - 'I've no worries about what he thinks about me or my team, my side can beat them on any given date - that is the most important thing to me.

'We know we can beat them because I did it at the Reebok. Because he didn't like it, he found some excuse about how we played. Arsene Wenger did it, Jose Mourinho did it - they all do it when they get their backsides smacked about.

'He has had a bee in his bonnet for a while. He is entitled to have his opinion as everyone and it's nice to have someone complaining about you when you are beating them. What's the point of having a drink after the game and the other manager saying 'don't my team play good football' when we've been beaten 2-1 or 3-1.

'I know how good a boss I am and how good a job I can do. I wouldn't have been in the Premier League for 19 years if I couldn't do it.

'So it's not of any importance to me what Rafa Benitez thinks about what I do and don't do.'

Jesus Christ, that will wind up the Spanish waiter up no end!!!

i like the swagger of big sam this time. let's translate it into performance.

really hope you guys beat them. i totally agree with big sam, rafa will find any excuse he can when he has been beaten. even if his team is comprehensively beaten and are totally outplayed he will still find some b.u.l.l.s.h.i.t excuse like global warming or his keeper getting distracted by planes flying over the stadium. total w.a.n.k.e.r in my opinion.

This does mean nothing unless we actually back it up on the pitch!!! if we lose 4-0 like last year then this looks fairly silly!!!!

I'd pay to see sam chin rafa after gerrard falls over like a girl AGAIN and rafa moans when they dont get a pen. On a side note i'd definately take a point, although we are due a "big" team upset in the league soon surely!

if we get a result then good stuff, but will look very stupid if we get battered. if we dont get a result now it will look like the waiter has served us.
