    Was sent this today and thought it worthy os sharing on this board:

    Reporter: Gordon, Do you think James Beattie deserves to be in the England
    squad?
    Strachan: I don't care, I'm Scottish.

    Reporter: "Gordon, can we have a quick word please?"
    Strachan: "Velocity" [walks off]

    Reporter: Welcome to Southampton Football Club. Do you think you are the
    right man to turn things around?
    Strachan: No. I was asked if I thought I was the right man for the job and I
    said, "No, I think they should have got George Graham because I'm useless."

    Reporter: Is that your best start to a season?
    Strachan: Well I've still got a job so it's far better than the Coventry
    one, that's for sure.

    Reporter: Are you getting where you want to be with this team?
    Strachan: We're not doing bad. What do you expect us to be like? We were
    eighth in the league last year, in the cup final and we got into Europe. I
    don't know where you expect me to get to. Do you expect us to win the
    Champions League?

    Reporter: Gordon, you must be delighted with that result?
    Strachan: You're spot on! You can read me like a book.

    Reporter: Gordon, Agustin Delgado?
    Strachan: I've got more important things to think about. I've got a yoghurt
    to finish by today, the expiry date is today. That can be my priority rather
    than Agustin Delgado.

    Reporter: This might sound like a daft question, but you'll be happy to get
    your first win under your belt, won't you?
    Strachan: You're right. It is a daft question. I'm not even going to bother
    answering that one. It is a daft question, you're spot on there.

    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 off a bridge. Umm, I think I can take it, yeah.

    Reporter: There's no negative vibes or negative feelings here?
    Strachan: Apart from yourself, we're all quite positive round here. I'm
    going to whack you over the head with a big stick, down negative man, down.

    Reporter: where will Marion Pahars fit into the team line-up?
    Strachan: Not telling you! It's a secret.

    Reporter: You don't take losing lightly, do you Gordon?
    Strachan: I don't take stupid comments lightly either.

    Reporter: So, Gordon, in what areas do you think Middlesbrough were better
    than you today?
    Strachan: What areas? Mainly that big green one out there...

    Reporter: So. Gordon. Any plans for Europe?
    Strachan: Me and the wife were thinking Spain in August
