Busted: Paul Jiggins Of The Sun

Image for Busted: Paul Jiggins Of The Sun

Evening all.

Paul Jiggins is a man of immensely limited human dimensions. Which is a kind way of saying he probably would be better suited to say, cleaning toilets or peeling potatoes for a living than pretending to be a sports reporter.

Here’s the transcription of a paid journalist making himself look about as informed as a dead sheep or as he called it, ‘interrogating Villas-Boas.’

Mr Ploppy: Andre, can you understand Hugo Lloris’ frustration about the situation because you did pay quite a lot of money for him.
AVB: “What is the frustration?”
Mr Ploppy: Well frustration about not being in the team.
AVB: “How do you know?”
Mr Ploppy: Well he didn’t play last night did he?
AVB: “How do you know he’s frustrated?”
Mr Ploppy: I am asking you, do you find him frustrated?
AVB:“I am asking you what…”
Mr Ploppy: Has he actually come to you and said he’s frustrated?
AVB: “No, he’s not frustrated.”
Mr Ploppy: He’s obviously happy with the situation?
Mr Ploppy: Do you expect to have more talks with him?
AVB: “No we have talks every day, with every player at every training session, that’s the way things work.”

Now that was on the the morning of the 27th of this month after the Carlisle game. Instead of taking a hint, a paid journalist went go one further and make up a tale to support his fantasy [link].

Boss AVB also had a bust-up with technical co-ordinator Tim Sherwood, who is allegedly angry at being frozen out.

Players complained that AVB’s gruelling double training sessions — sometimes staged just 24 hours before a match — left them too tired to perform in Premier League matches this season.

And Spurs stars have also hit out at their manager’s negative style of football, telling him they would prefer to play a more attacking system. AVB has scrapped the double training sessions after listening to his squad.

But AVB is said to have been left reeling by the mutiny, which reportedly follows bust-ups with some of the club’s old guard behind the scenes.’

As you can see, in this quote free piece Jiggins doesn’t make any mention of the ‘incompetent’ attempt to get the boss to confess to something that wasn’t true. Now, I don’t know about you, but I had a nailed on source, the old ‘insider’ sketch going on, I’d want want to run the article to follow-up an interview with the angle that Villas Boas was in denial. ‘Somebody isn’t telling the truth, here.’

But of course, there was no source. There was no story, just a petulant little toad out for some half cocked trouble making.

Oh yes and Tim Sherwood told the Guardian:

“That’s all they are – just rumours, that’s all I know about it.

“I’ve got a great job where I am. There ain’t nothing to consider. It’s just speculation. I love what I do. I’m happy at the football club, it’s a great project.”

Jiggins, you’re busted.

    Keys and Gray said Sherwood told them that story about the team being knackered

    • Andy says:

      They tweeted later that they were misinformed. Basically they took jiggins article as fact

      • Phil McAvity says:

        It just re-confirms to me that they are both just a couple of f*ckwits!

        • Thepin says:

          Just one F***wit – It is my belief that they are one being, one entity, an experiment in Pundit gene splicing gone wrong, wrought from the DNA of Ron Atkinsons ear hair, Ian St Johns Faeces, and a biopsy of Alan Smiths left nostril. They are the disowned siamese twins let loose from the dark imaginings of Rupert Murdoch, released from the underground laboratory, deep within his volcano in the Pacific.

          They, and all traces of them should be eliminated, so that humanity should never be subjected to such abomination again.

          Right out of the Kelvin McKenzie book of backtracking, chapter 1, page one; first paragraph

        • benspur says:

          An odious toad of the highest order

  • jbo says:

    Only thing is… it wasnt jiggins at the press conference

    • wilboid says:

      Yes, I suspected this too because I’m not sure if Jiggins is capable of speech, I heard him attempt it once before but it sounded like a fight between Pie’n’Mash and some Jellied Eels in his fat gob.

  • melcyid says:

    jiggins needs us to stalk him

  • jbo says:

    Keyes has since retracted his comments regarding Sherwood being behind the story. See Keyes twitter account

    • a_felching says:

      It must have slipped his mind between morning and evening, protcting the source of the shite he spouts :whistle:

    • Harry Hotspur says:

      Keys essentially confessed he was passing off what was in the Sun as an exclusive. ‘Tim Sherwood has told us’ actually translated as Time Sherwood has told the Sun.’

      Or as it was, Tim Sherwood has not told anyone anything…er… beep beep, monkey pawed sexist pig dog reversing beep beep, monkey pawed sexist pig dog reversing.’

      • LLL says:

        I think Richard Keys is a detestable, teddy-bear faced cnut but I think to be fair to him on this occasion he meant the comment as in ‘Tim Sherwood told us…’ as in the collective us, as in he’s quoted in the paper today saying, as he then says, actually checked and there are no quotes. Then accuses the Sun of having an agenda against Sherwood / AVB / Spurs.

        Either way, Jiggins is most likely making up shite.

        Interestingly, there was another angle on this story in the Bale interview in the Grauniad:

        “For example, if we feel we are working too hard in training, if we say that to him, then he’ll ease it off. He’s still learning as well as a manager but he does all the coaching and everything himself, which is great.”

        Is this where the actual ‘truth’ behind Jiggins’ bullshittery lies? Who knows. Either way Kyle also took to twitter to refute the story yesterday:

        “Just landed back in London still buzzing from the win thought the gaffers tactics were stop on and all that in the paper is false “

        • essexian76 says:

          I’m loving the fact that with Keys looking a little bit silly, then equally TS and Jigglings relationship must be quite low right now, as Keys is perhaps TS’s star signing, and like it or not is influential within the football media. Perhaps Mr Gray will lay a kiss on Jigglings forehead, maybe two?

      • Bobbles says:

        Keys should be more careful, what with certain dominatrix based photographs in existence.
