He is, he's like 190cm

0.37 giraffes for anyone wondering


Sean_0510

I'll never not upvote something measured in giraffes since that asteroid article


mtftl

I thought I was the only one who saw that. Such a strange headline


mojomonkey18

What article is that. I’m very curious


mtftl

This one. [https://www.yahoo.com/video/asteroid-4-times-larger-empire-161102977.html](https://www.yahoo.com/video/asteroid-4-times-larger-empire-161102977.html) I guess this is a thing. Googling "asteroid giraffes" was surprisingly fruitful, who knew.

Weird way to measure an asteroid lmao


KristoffersonFox

What is it with this sub That has always been a British reference


CSIHoratioCaine

While the specific giraffe measurement is British. It's been a meme for years that Americans will use anything but the metric system to measure things.


oynutta_

Good bot


TomShoe

He looks bigger than 190 here, but maybe Fergie's just shorter than I realised.


PowderedToastMan666

Fergie's at an age where he's probably shrunk a decent amount.


RaioNoTerasu

maybe he shrinks or grows depending on how man utd are doing


CSIHoratioCaine

Well he's still there so it can't be that


Jcxz_

He just used to be a giant once.


StairwayToLemon

Fergie used to be 5'11, but he'll have shrunk a bit now in old age


LNhart

dalledayul

Expecting this to come at the end of an OptaJoe tweet any day now


Own_Emergency_5204

6′ 3″ in freedom units.


StairwayToLemon

Na, we still use feet in the UK


EffortlessFlexor

He's 12 stones tall


sgt_Berbatov

Think you'll find it's 6ft 2" in ye olde imperialist measurements. Source: I'm 193cm and 6ft 3.


wikiot

Actually both are 6ft3, you're just a touch below 6ft4.


CSIHoratioCaine

You are 193 cm until you are 194. you don't round up.


TuckBigFech

Yes but centimeters are more precise than feet/inch.


CSIHoratioCaine

It's a reference to the argument two arsenal fans had over Jackson Martinez age.


TuckBigFech

Ah I didn't know haha


lolzidop

He's no Finished, he's only 182


Deluxe07

193cm is 6ft3?! I’ve been telling people I’m 6’4 this whole time…


richcell

You’re probably 6’4. 6’4 = 193.04


Mercerai

Southgate really struggling with the whole smiling thing there

Hoodxd

He knows Klopp doesn’t like him


Lack_of_Plethora

I don't think it's that Klopp doesn't like him, but that Klopp thinks he's a bad manager.


melcolnik

Which is probably worse really


TheJynxedOne

I think if I was an opposition manager I'd rather another manager didn't like me, than not respect me. Definitely worse.


[deleted]

[удалено]


samalam1

Define "opposition", international football is practically a different sport


Luis__FIGO

Southgate managed Middlesbrough to being relagated, that was not international football.


-MurphysDad-

As a newly retired player over 10 years ago, bit harsh to judge him off his first job


yajtraus

I assume they just mean another professional manager. Southgate has managed at club level too.


CanadaEh97

It's a "I'm not mad, I'm disappointed" situation.


cubiswow

However also entirely accurate.


Tweddlr

When did he say this?


Lack_of_Plethora

The one that comes to mind https://www.theguardian.com/football/2021/nov/06/gareth-southgate-surprised-by-jurgen-klopps-barbed-england-comments


hyperactiv3hedgehog

It's not really a problem with southgate but he's backing his players fergie would have done it too if he wasn't a scot


ParkerZA

Is he? No matter how you slice it getting your team to a semi-final and final of an international tournament probably raises you above "bad".


yokelwombat

England always seem to scrape by and are awful to watch. We had our fair share of issues with Löw, but at least he won the World Cup. I wouldn't say Southgate is a *bad* coach per se, just painfully mediocre.


semenbakedcookies

I think he's bad because if you have the squad England have and you decide to play even more boring football than Getafe you deserve all the hate and criticism you get


speedycar1

No you don't. No one plays expansive football internationally. It's just not viable. Spain were boring just in a different way. Germany played 4 CBs at one point. France were primarily a counter attacking team too. You're just looking for reasons to whine if you spend years complaining about not going deep in tournaments and then when a manager does take you there, you cry that he didn't do it pretty enough. England fans of all people should know that great talent on paper don't necessarily result in success and great football in international tournaments automatically


rugbyj

Doesn’t every generation of England squad always have the “If you have the players they do…” hanging over them? They’ve always underperformed for the “star power” they’ve got on the pitch (in recent memory). They’re getting (better) results, sure it’s boring but Klitschko was boring too.


MC_Stella

We underperformed massively in the 2000s because of boring horrible tactics that are due to pure English arrogance believing “the English way” was on par with continental tactics. 2010s, just a lot of shit players to be honest. Have a look at the 2014 World Cup squad. The good players are either past it or really young. And then there’s the rest. 2016 Euros squad might be worse. England are in desperate need of a tactical revival. Problem is we’ve always been behind Europe in tactics. Southgate is continuing it. We have a squad finally near the levels of the 2000s and we play the most mundane hoof ball set piece merchant crap. English football is still prehistoric. Foreign PL managers have revolutionised club football but it hasn’t seemed to catch on much at the international level.


GuendouziGOAT

This. With the exception of having to play the worst Germany team in years, the two runs we had in those tournaments were *extremely* soft, and Southgate crumbled in both that semi and the final. Both times we took an early lead and rather than push on and try and capitalise he completely shut up shop, opening us to extreme pressure for over 100 minutes of football when you include ET. That’s not to mention the debacle of bringing on two players just for penalties in the Euros final only for them to then both miss. The point is that the football we play is horrible to watch and despite this boring pragmatism we don’t have shit to show for it, even though Southgate really should’ve learned from his mistakes against Croatia and not fallen into the same trap last summer. But he did. Because he isn’t a good manager


thanksantsthants

The next competitive game they played in a tournament was against Croatia and they won.


Lack_of_Plethora

I don't think he is whatsoever, but Klopp has many times insulted his decisions as England manager.


BigBallzBrian

Why doesn’t Klopp like Southgate?


cosmiclatte44

He's constantly got a face like a teacher about to give you a stern telling off.


THJappe

Didn't watch these awards, why is Southgate even there?


SternJohnLastMin

It’s the League Manager Association awards which is the union for professional managers including the national team manager.


The-Sober-Stoner

Its so funny. So many foreign fans seemed to have detached the concept of the England team from the English football pyramid.


BB0ySnakeDogG

The flairs in the last Euro/WC gave that away. Funny seeing loads of big 6 PL flairs laughing when England lost.


Andigaming

Thats why the PL is the biggest league by far though. They went in hard for the global audience early on and it has paid off big time.


TheSmith_10

English being the universal lingua franca doesn't hurt.


TomShoe

You just described the entire nation of Ireland.


DerridasCircle

What are the two main religions in Ireland? Liverpool and Man Utd.


TomShoe

Swear I saw an Everton kit when I was in Dublin once, not a word of a lie.


jamiew0w

Spuds and guiness actually, ya prick


anonnyscouse

To be fair a lot of the Liverpool flairs laughing at England losing were probably from Liverpool.


goonerboo

so many foreign fans try to deny the fact that English football clubs are English lmao. I had some Nigerian gooner tell me "Arsenal are not an English football club. they are a global brand team" he refused to support an English football club. but loves supporting a "global brand team" -_-


april9th

Everyone bangs on about how money has ruined the sport and how 'heritage fans' are important... but if you try and actually *quantify * why a generational, local fan, who has put into the club financially since birth basically (either them or on their behalf), then the inevitable conclusion on what fan matters more makes you a cunt. I don't have any problem at all with fans supporting clubs around the world but idk there's a pretty bizarre disconnect from reality where we have to pretend every single person who supports a team is exactly the same.


goonerboo

> I don't have any problem at all with fans supporting clubs around the world but idk there's a pretty bizarre disconnect from reality where we have to pretend every single person who supports a team is exactly the same. couldn't have said it any better myself. there are supporters. and then there are *supporters*.

He doesn't want to be the third wheel. Ferguson and Klopp seems to respect each other's class.

To be fair Southgate strikes me as the kind of guy who wouldn't disagree with them on that. He's definitely not an ego.

I feel that… I only have about one photo’s worth of a fake smile


Nuri__Sahin

Don't blame Klopp. A pic with Fergie in it or just Southgate? Tough choice.


Jester252

Klopp will have that photo on his desk, with Southgate folded behind the photo.


RuairiSpain

Klopp is brutal he'll use a scissors or surgical knive to cut him out.


Jester252

Or just superglue someone face over him.


stragen595

Pep.


Kloppage-Time

Pep actually in a suit? It's wouldn't be believable if it wasn't a cardigan/hoodie, or some jumper meant for kids half his age.

EyeSpyGuy

https://youtu.be/bDUKG0137xY I think they’re alright if he’s congratulating Klopp despite the latter waking him up in the middle of the night


retr0grade77

They have each others up to date numbers which is telling. They seem to respect eachother.


plowman_digearth

Not sure if they go on road trips but Klopp did say early on that he has a lot of respect for SAF and he can't say it as Liverpool manager but it is what it is.


voldywithnose

Almost every manager has respect for Fergie be it Wenger or Klopp or Pep or Jose. Even more people accept now that he is retired. And again almost everyone likes Klopp. We might not like the club he is managing but as a person he is a great man.


Zacatecan-Jack

Not Benitez, though


Meecs18

Klopp gave him a hug just before as he accepted the award so I think they get on pretty well.


lordofthejungle

I think it's just that *everyone* likes Klopp, unfortunately. Even Southgate probably wishes Klopp liked him because he likes him.


dowdymeatballs

Southgate, Paul Tierney and Des Kelly probably have a whatsapp group chat to talk shit about Klopp.


mauricesarin

Even I like Klopp and I really shouldn't be..


dowdymeatballs

I believe the do keep in regular contact. Klopp also asked him about going to England and choosing a club, Fergie said to just make sure its one with a big history.

Gr8WarriorNL

The funny thing is that it isnt his price to hold. I think he was just put off because he didnt expect to be drawn back by Klopp for a picture. Dont know why, but i find it really funny.


Kwajoch

The trophy is named after him, that should be a good enough reason to touch it


rather_retarded

NO TOUCHING!


Shadowbanned24601

I think it's fairly understandable why Fergie just automatically reaches for a trophy. Force of habit and all


jklynam

He's probably just trying to make it look like he just handed it to hin


RociRocinante

Yeah I never know what to do with my hands for photos


dave1992

Mutual respect from Ferguson and Klopp there.


dracogladio1741

Meanwhile, Southgate thanking God he can be in a photo with the best managers of their generation.


dave1992

To be fair Southgate did look out of place if being compared to Klopp and Ferguson. Klopp is arguably the best manager right now, while Ferguson is arguably the best of all time. Southgate just happen to manage England, that's all.


slarker

God it's so difficult to hate this guy. But very easy to hate Woodward for letting Klopp slip through United's hands.

404randomguy404

Class act


-PM_ME_A_SECRET-

Honestly, of any manager of an English team, Fergie has probably hurt Bayern the most in European competitions. I would still love a picture with the man. Class act and one of the absolute best, if not THE best to ever manage.


unitedrobbie

Fwiw Bayern have always been pure class around the Munich disaster and everything that went along with it. Can't speak for all United fans but at least for me you're one club I'll always really have a soft spot for


RedGreenBoy

Klopp is one slick bastard, he knows there are 2 things Ferguson hates, Germans and Liverpool and then he does this to the old fella.

Chapmeisterfunk

I like the respect shown. Fergie was the bane of my childhood, watching United win literally everything, but you simply can't deny what he did or the things he achieved. I already knew Klopp was a great guy, and this cements it even further.


aelfwine_widlast

Kenny counts Fergie as a friend, and credits him with being the first colleague to offer help after Hillsborough, so he's alright by me.
