    Pep's doing his "THANK YOU!" "THANK YOU SO MUCH!" routine, which reminds me of his "I am so happy, happy new year!" skit. He's a very funny loser.

    Jose's blame-shifting and frankly bizarre behaviour when losing was always a site to behold.

    Who else is in this weight class for bad losing? Videos please! :D

    I’ve always wondered what Ferguson’s reaction to being told to mind his language was! For years it has irritated me that the guy cut off the clip when he did :lol:

    Klopp when Liverpool lose to a team that doesn't play 'football' (i.e. a defensive team, WBA, etc.)

    Cant really blame Pep on today.

    I think even someone mild like Ancelotti or Hiddink would blow up if they had those decisions go against them.

    Klopp's finest in this regard was the game at OT last season when he blamed the performance on the 4 injuries that WE picked up in the 1st half. Somehow us being forced into 3 1st half subs and Rashford limping around for 70 minutes was a negative for them, rather than something they should have capitlised on. Particularly as we were still the better side that day and should have won.

    It's also a laugh when he blames it on the weather. Weather which both teams have to play in.


    Mark Hughes was/is a particularly sore loser as well. It was never him or his teams. It was always referees, every week. Glad we haven't had to endure his post match interviews for a while now.

    Mark Hughes caring more about the after match handshake than the result was always a favourite of mine. Total pillock of a bloke.

    Pep is always a dreadfully poor loser. The "Nice guy" mask certainly slips.

    But then like the old adage goes, show me a good loser and i'll show you a loser!

    Klopp and Hughes are genuinely embarrassing, cringey freaks after losing.

    Neil warnock not good either

    Righ, I remember now. Either way, it’s his reaction to being cautioned I’m after!

    Klopp's infuriating to watch after a loss. Total wanker.

    That being said, I wouldn't mind seeing it more often.

    He was a man possessed that match.
