Cottee: “Beware the wounded animal”

CotteeTony Cottee believes “wounded animal ” Manchester City are a very clear and present danger to the Irons this weekend.

“The former club striker – talking to London 24.com – said: “They are a wounded animal after their derby loss and are due to give someone a good hiding and I’m just hoping it won’t be us.

“It looks like we might be without strikers Sakho and Valencia as well, so I would say that I am available, but I may not be able to run around too much!

I don’t like to predict West Ham defeats so I will go for a crafty, hard-fought 0-0 draw. We may not be playing for too much, but it is all going on at the bottom of the table.

“I would like to see my old boys Leicester City stay up, so I will plump for Burnley, QPR and Hull City to face the drop.”

  1. ahahahah… sorry but I’m laughing… Mr. Cottee’s always brought us luck…he predicted 60 points at the end of the season… I don’t understand why he’s superstitious now… lol

  2. Since time immemorial we have been the ideal game for teams following significant setbacks, as we always obidiently roll over and gift them the three points. Sunday will be no different. Manchester City must be rubbing their hands with glee that they have been given an almost guaranteed route back into the race for the CL places.

  3. They must be dusting off there calculators again,
    But then that could be BFS new job if he becomes available,
    BFS R.I.P

  4. What incredibly astonishing insight from TC. Why open your mouth when you haven’t got anything to say?
