'Clough passed on what he knew' That suggests that Clough is teaching, not that O'Neil merely learnt by association.
I have no idea what a 'strawman' argument is. I do know what you said, and that you are now un-saying it
If you know what I said then you should be able to point out where i stated that Clough as you put it, 'actively taught O'Neil to be a manager'. I did not mention how anything was passed on merely stating that it was. It could quite conceivably have been passed on by merely associating in close proximity with Clough, as learning by observing his example.
The fact that you could not perceive this, probably because you have a singular belief in nothing but your own propaganda is not my fault but yours. Perhaps if you were not so assuming you may do better, who can say? I have also not 'unsaid' anything as you are now once again alleging. In fact I standby everything I have said despite your ludicrous assertions to the contrary.
You should look up strawman and educate yourself and perhaps it will help you to refrain from assigning values to people that have not explicitly expressed the values you think or say they have and proceeding to build arguments on the basis of those assumed values.
I doubt your career as a troll taunter will be very successful unless you can come up with a less transparent method of attempting to elicit an emotive response from people. All that one needs to do is confront you with logic and reason, ask you to cite evidence for your claims and your wagon is left floundering on the forum floor. Sigh such is the way of mere insinuations.
