Nouveau cliche: Untenable

Posted by - February 3, 2010 - Nouveau cliche

Our position of listening to you trot out the same generic excuse has become untenable

OTP reader Ben Marlow is pining for a time when footballing folk gave half-decent excuses for their high profile fall-outs instead of reverting to lawyer speak.

Ben said: “Reading the recent stories about Peter Storrie, Avram, that West Ham bloke, and anyone else who feels like a change of scenery the word ‘untenable’ always pops up. I can’t remember where I first saw it, but I’m sure it’s only got popular in the last 2 seasons.”

OTP would have to agree that we can’t imagine the likes of Brian Clough ever finding themselves in an untenable position.
