    Lamest excuses for sporting defeats

    We all know that football managers will blame anyone and anything for defeats, but the gold medal surely has to go to Andre Agassi.

    He claims that he lost the 1990 French Open Final to Gomez because his movement was restricted by the fact that he was worried that his wig was going to fall off.

    Tommy Doc blaming our relegation in 1974 on the bus driver has always been my personal favourite.

    The Purple Faced One's whinge about ManUre's grey shirts making it impossible for his players to see each other is up there. IIRC they changed kit at HT.

    Was just about to cite that. Were 3-0 down at HT (against Southampton), ended up losing 3-1 after changing to our blue and white number.

    Next season we went to The Dell, started in the blue and white kit, and lost 6-3

    After B*lton were beaten by Middlesbrough in the 2004 league cup final, ****head Allardyce said afterwards that they had "not taken their usual kick off" and that as a result their whole game plan had been disrupted

    He moaned about Zenden's penalty for some reason as well iirc.

    Anyway, another terrible excuse was "It was John Barnes' fault"

    Didn't Egil Olsen once blame the alignment of the stars/planets? Think the renowned mentalist was into his astrology.

    Nah, that must be somebody else. Drillo doesn't care much for preconceived truths, but his boots are very firmly on this planet.
