"That 4-0 result tonight was politics, nothing else. Whether you are involved directly or indirectly you have an effect. It has an effect on everyone. Because of a piss-ant town this club will never win anything, until you get rid of that crap."
In 2009, Adelaide United coach Aurelio Vidmar went on an inexplicable rant against everyone bar himself and his team after the Reds crashed to a humiliating 4-0 semi-final loss to Melbourne Victory.
Vidmar, an Adelaide-born football hero, later apologised. "In light of my comments, I certainly meant no disrespect to the people and city of Adelaide, so I want to make that extremely clear," he said.
He blamed internal issues at board level and a communication breakdown as reasons for inciting his behaviour, which he later cleared, receiving the full backing of the club's owners. However, the "piss-ant town" comment has become somewhat of a clanger among A-League fans ever since.
