Iain Dowie Struggles With The ‘Away Goals’ Rule (Video)

Despite being paid handsomely (the irony is not lost!) to talk about things, Iain Dowie is a man that cannot actually talk – and, by the looks of things, neither can he think that good about stuff like numbers either.

Schalke whupped Inter 5-2 in Milan last night meaning that, by Dowie’s calculations, the Nerazzurri will need to score ‘seven or something’ in Germany to reverse the thrashing…

Christ! You know you’re in a hole when Paul Merson is correcting your maths.

    ian dowie was on sky sports today claiming that michael carrick was a great player

    this twat above was proved wrong tonight carrick was superb.

    Ian Dowie actually is pretty smart, he has a Master’s degree in Engineering, so maybe he’s just crap at football-related stuff..

  5. Uncle Sam says:

    Beautiful pass by Carrick. Was great v Chelsea I have never been a fan but must give credit when it’s due.

  6. TO says:

    Where the hell did he get an Engineering degree? I have one of those and I’ll tell you ability to count is very necessary in the field

  7. alistair says:

    he’s using hyperbole, i found it very amusing

    and merson’s being a bit of a cunt when he says “4” in that wry tone of voice. what if schalke put one in, merson, ever think of that?

  8. Adam says:

    Jesus Christ, this is a welcome reminder of why I was so happy when Coventry sacked this muppet. ‘Cluj’ is Kruge (kroogah), ‘Gavronich’ is Gavranovic, and in what kind of universe are Wolfsburg (‘volfsborg’, not ‘woolfsburg’) a bigger club than Schalke in terms of player pulling power? Raul, Huntelaar and Metzelder are a far superior summer haul than Simon Kjaer and Diego, and they’ve lost their one true talent since. No, not McClaren…

    “Merson’s being a ‘bit of a cunt'” – that made me laugh!! Is that a not a given??
