Dowie Spills No Beans

Iain Dowie was interviewed on Five Live's Sportsweek radio programme this morning, but failed to lift the lid on any new revelations as to why he was sacked by Charlton.

He did say that he felt the players were good enough to retain their Premiership place this season; that he had 100% backing from Les Reed; and that he got on well with Richard Murray and particularly Peter Varney, who backed him in his court case.

He thought he was liked at The Valley, so much so that the laundry lady had tears in her eyes when he left. I guess if you had to wash Dowie's jockstrap every day for three months, you'd be happy he was going...

He also said "You know..." forty-eight times in seven minutes.

Henry Winter, the studio guest summised that, as Dowie and Reed had been relieved of their duties, but even Pardew was now struggling to get results, that the problem may lay with the players, some of which Dowie had bought, so he wasn't entirely blameless.

You know he's only gona and caught that Beckham disease.

You know what I mean?
And on the same programme, Steve Mclaren said "most definitely" at least a dozen times in five minutes.
