Food for Thought

Has Sir Alex gone all Jamie Oliver on us?

As someone who had his fill of cookery programmes on our television screens a long time ago, the last thing I wanted to come across, skimming through the tabloid press this morning, was to find an article whereby Sir Alex was informing the nation of the virtues of a healthy diet, even more so when you consider the crap that passes through my intestinal passages.

It seems that Sir Alex, in an age whereby Jamie Oliver was probably sucking up to Fanny Craddock, stumbled across a pre-match meal that became the norm until the advent of sports science and nutritionists enlightening the world as to what players should really eat with Sir Alex commenting,

"When I started as a coach - and before they started talking about diets - I used to take my team at East Stirling for lunch."

"All I would give them was two slices of lemon sole, toast and honey. They used to go crazy. When I was a player they used to give you fillet steaks and steak pie and things like that."

"So when I became a manager I said to myself 'What they eat before a game is as important as what happens during the game."

"I did that at Aberdeen and I did exactly the same at United."


Well perhaps it was a damn good job I was never good enough, on the field of play to play for United because I`d have sat there pushing that lot around my plate! Fish - urgh!
