    Well, he stated the staff were summoned to a London hotel 3 weeks ago and ordered to play to a certain style. Can that be a fairytale?

    It sounds exactly how many expected him to run this club. That doesn't make it true or false, but does make it something easily made up and believed.

    Talk to me, Goose.

    So (if true) he's not happy with the style of football being played, and so goes and employs a manager renowned for non-passing football at several top clubs? It's either total rubbish or he's very short sighted.

    Really, really would love to smash Saggers fucking face in too. Man's a fucking prick.

    in fairness this is a man who has just sacked SOD and appointed Alex McLeish so who knows what dark depths of madness Al Hazawi is capable of. What colours are the Kuwaiti flag?

    Thanks for putting my mind at rest - I was panicking for a moment.
    They haven't got round to discussing this rumour yet though. Stay tuned.

    Is Saggers at Talksport now? Wondered where he'd gone, but must admit I haven't missed him.

    Yet another in a long line of radio sports presenters who try to fill airtime by giving the impression they know more than they do in reality.

    So, as you'all predicted - Saggers has not referred to his original "breaking news" claim that the chairman is choosing the team.......

    Many journalists having been looking for the lazy 'dodgy owners' story since the takeover. Talk Sport have been near the top of that list. It's easier for them to talk shite rather than be open to reality.

    The truthful story of O'Driscoll having a meeting to discuss things has turned into "SOD told what formation to play and who to start who he can buy" etc... by Journalists if they can call themselves that.

    Heard this when they were doing the handover from the Alan Brazil breakfast show. Waited for the Saggers and Quin show to start but they spent ages talking about refereeing decisions. Did he ever discuss this in more detail??

    Well, he has 17 minutes left to deliver the "bombshell" so obviously everybody is correct that Saggers is a wind-up. All mouth and no trousers, to use an archaic expression.

    Other than some vague comment about there being "separate issues" to the Forest story prior to speaking with Villa's chief scout (who apparently followed AMcL from Brum) about McLeish's management style, no he didn't.
