The SPL Weekend: Dirty Dozen

One word from a dozen managers to sum up the SPL this weekend:

Aberdeen 5 v 0 Kilmarnock

Craig Brown: “Pleasing.”
Mixu Paatelainen: “Farcical.”

Hearts 2 v 1 Dundee United

Jim Jefferies: “Determination.”
Peter Houston: “Cruel.”

Inverness 2 v 0 St Johnstone

Terry Butcher: “Effort.”
Derek McInnes: “Disappointed.”

Motherwell 1 v 0 Hamilton

Stuart McCall: “Huge.”
Billy Reid: “Conned.”

Celtic 3 v 0 Rangers

Neil Lennon: “Fantastic.”
Walter Smith: “Deserved.”

St Mirren 0 v 1 Hibs

Danny Lennon: “Choke.”
Colin Calderwood: “Gritty.”

I might try this again in the couple of weeks. See how often the same managers use the same vocabulary to describe their team’s performance.
