This Is Why We Have Washing Machines

This Is Why We Have Washing Machines

Ian Holloway has explained to everybody why we have washing machines, and he subtly suggests Liverpool buy one.

Speaking to Setnata Sports, Holloway says that the way in which the Barry saga has come to light has highlighted a lack of morality in the modern game.

Praising O'Neill for his handling of the situation, a former Foxes manager himself, said Liverpool should 'put up or shut up'.

On being asked who his tip for the Top 4 would be this season, Holloway said:

'I'd like to think Martin O'Neill's Aston Villa.

'It could be very worrying about Barry and how these things happen. Why does everyone know about that? In the good old days, Liverpool would've made a secret offer to Villa and no-one would've known about it. Not even the player.

'Why is it blasted all over the place? O'Neill is out of the Brian Clough mould but he is himself as well. I think the fella is fantastic. When I hear him on TV, I think people want to play for him.

'He's got some exciting young players and deserves a chance. Hopefully, the American man will give him lots of money to spend and back his judgement.'

Commenting further on the Barry situation, he added:

'You shouldn't air your dirty linen in public, that's why we've got washing machines. You bang it in and it doesn't show.

'Until the figure is agreed and Aston Villa, at the moment, rate Gareth Barry more than Liverpool do as Liverpool are not meeting it [the fee].

'If you want to buy my car, until we agree a price why would my car need to know? My car might find out and get temperamental and not to want to work for me.

'What's the point? Where has the morality gone? Where are we going in this world when you can't even walk outside without getting stabbed these days?

'Football highlights it even more and I don't like it.

'Villa helped bring up that kid. Liverpool want him but must pay the right money or shut up, it's as simple as that. If not, you'll get a chance to move when you're out of contract, young fella.

'It's sorted. Simple isn't it? My world is simple. People call me crazy. I'm not crazy - all the rest of the world is.'

Whether you agree with Holloway or not, I've got to say that gave me one of the best laughs I've had in a long time.

Ian Holloway is quite a character and completely off the wall. The guy is as mad as a hatter. I like the way he jumps entirely off the subject with 'Where are we going in this world when you can't even walk outside without getting stabbed these days?' it's just priceless. Fair play to him though, he has a good understanding of morals, which is more than can be said for dole-dossers of lfc.

Looking on some of the more neutral forums, or at least not Villa or Liverpool biased, its seems a lot of people blame MON for leaking the story to the press, is this an article I missed or are they poorly misled individuals?
