Gordon Strachan tells it like it is

He's been dealt a tough hand in life (I'll let you make an assumptions you want!), but Gordon Strachan is a quick-witted, funny and brutally honest man.

He admitted that Scotland's 3-2 defeat to England was "a huge opportunity missed," and that they could have been heroes in 40 years time had they won.

It reminded me of a quote of his back when he was with Southampton...

Reporter: Bang, there goes your unbeaten run. Can you take it?

Strachan: No, I’m just going to crumble like a wreck. I’ll go home, become an alcoholic and maybe jump of a bridge. Umm, I think I can take it, yeah.

Ask a stupid question, Gordon will make you feel stupid. Wish there were more like him.
