Another about face from Magnus Wheatley

Yesterday's rule69blog post about Alinghi said

 

Last chance saloon for Baird

"One more hopeless start, one more defeat and Alinghi will be in panic mode. This is game on for Barker and Hutchinson, they've got them right where they want them - now they have to ram home their advantage whilst the wind stays light.

 

3-1 would be a mountain to climb, even for Alinghi..."

 

 

 

 

 

After today's race he says -

 

The Empire Strikes Back...

"Alinghi level the series by 30 seconds today as expected"

 

 

So what's it to be, is Alinghi about to melt down or are they clearly the dominant boat in this event?

 

Sounds like Wheatley is doing the old tabloid trick of supporting everybody while also criticising everybody, and hoping that his readers have short memories. That way, no matter what happens he can claim to have predicted the outcome precisely.

 

 

WANKER!!

Gee thanks! You beat me to this. Yeah the "as expected" part of that latest comment is what struck me. He's a "flip flopper". He could make a great career as a politician in the States. Someone needs to pick up where John Kerry left off :lol:

Magnanimous Wheatley is great entertainment value. You absorb his ramblings at your own risk of indigestion...
