Can understand that, although its not the phrase that's in question so to speak. It's the fact that a player, the captain even, that's in a position to directly affect the outcome of the game (from the off lol) is the one saying it. Like what @JakeyBoy said.
Theo has basically admitted the team are not up for the fight, how could he be so naive so say that in the current situation. Also he's a teachers pet so doesnt wanna shift any blame to our inept manager, they all protect each other in interviews. Its sad and bloody pathetic to be frank. They aren't winners, they aren't men.
