I’ve got some more.
“Defending set pieces can do one.”
“Subs can do one.”
Potentially the worst managerial soundbite since "that goal changed nothing"?
Modern manager interviews are mostly rubbish, they know what they want to convey, can't anger the authorities and the owners and won't risk criticising players in public in case they sulk. Add in an adversion to revealing privileged information, suspicion of the message that will appear, and some leading questions and you wonder why any of them bother.
Spot on. Yet some people seem to absolutely live for them. The last thing I want to do after a disappointing draw or loss is listen to a manager's interview.
Bruno Lage was very good - gave a brilliant breakdown of how to take apart Man United after Wolves won there last season - you do still get some value in interviews even from top-level coaches. Klopp and Potter usually interesting too.
Player interviews, on the other hand... Generic nothingness 99 times out of 100. I'm sure some just naturally don't interview well, but the media training can't help.
Yes, Klopp is always good for a chuckle
"their injuries unsettled us"
"it was too windy"
"grass was too long"
