Who said that?

A place to chat about anything thats not football related. Most of the threads in here are completely pointless which is why people keep coming back and back. As the forum title suggests, feel free to make any post you want on any subject you wish. It also has Adult jokes (so be warned) which is the other reason people keep coming back.

Try this.

“ Football is a cruel mistress. She's more than a mistress, she's a wife, she's a mother, she's a daughter, she's an errant child.”

No.

I need to send this on the right path.

He could be seen as a parody of many old school managers.
For example, on equality: “ Which lets face it, I wouldn't say this if I had a team with me now, but some of them are worse than the others. And my tactic was to get them all down to exactly the same level.“ - Not Mick McCarthy.

A Northerner “I’m a Scunny man, through and through”, but also linked heavily to Dudley.

Damn frustrating as ideally should recognize who this is. Wasn't Keegan from Scunthorpe originally or had some association. Doesn't (seem to) fit in with the quote or have any real link to the West Midlands but best I can offer right now.

Sorry SJ. Not KK.

I don’t want to send this too far off track.

This character was a Football manager in the sense that he was a parody of a football manager.

it’s correct if you get the actor/comedian and brownie points if you get the name of the fictional manager.

The comedian had a partner who would probably be more famous in the States.

His heyday was really in the sixties and seventies.

One act of this duo has a link with potty-mouthed DerrickIpsw... but this duo would make Derrick sound like a choirboy.

Pete and Dud were great....I loved Peter Cook especially.

That was a clip from the Clive Anderson show in the nineties... he nailed all the cliched bollocks those types of managers spouted and could pass for a manager.
