Valiant attempt to absolve himself from any first half blame with his so called effective half time team talk. In effect all he did was to put on the subs, who in every ones opinion should have started the game to rectify the problem.Picked up some of his comments on the Swans Site, No video, but goes on to tell you how his "simple but effective half time talk paid dividends."
He then goes on to say, " No hairdryer treatment, no shouting, no pointing the finger of blame. just some words that struck the right chords ".
When it comes to finger pointing he needs to rotate his wrist 180 degrees and point the finger.
This guy is even better than Cooper for absolving himself of any blame.
