The blame game

My mind wanders to trivial matters today as I prepare to return to the UK for a marking marathon.

Hull City's Premiership days are over and their finances are a compete mess. Dutch midfielder, George Boateng, has no doubt who is to blame.
George Boateng: Phil Brown to blame for Hull City's relegation
This sounds familiar. Ah yes, last year.
Brown is reason Hull stayed up, insists Boateng
Memory is obviously not his strong point.

Given his contract is up, Boateng may even remember Hull one day. Didn't he claim to have taken a wage cut to go there? He must have been the only one...
Still, Phil must be enjoying the time he has to work on his tan. We didn't call him the Sun Bed Kid for nothing. A very fine lower division right back, and a not inconsiderable coach. But that's not quite the same as being a manager. Ask Sammy Lee or Brian Kidd.

why is this odd? He's being consistent. Brown has full responsibility, so when they do well, that's down to Brown, and when they do badly, that's down to Brown too?

Yeah, except they sacked him a few weeks back. And lost 4-1 at home to Burnley after he'd gone.

If you read the articles DD then the event that Boateng said destroyed the team and led to relegation took place half way through the season they stayed up!
