Hull chairmen Adam Pearson has expressed concern over manager Phil Brown’s behaviour after the eccentric Tiger’s boss confirmed via his personal website that he had started legal proceedings against Warner Brothers Entertainment and Matrix creators Andy and Larry Wachowski over his striking similarity to fictional post apocalyptic hero Neo.
Brown, ignoring anachronistic flaws in his accusation, claims that there are many parallels between the popular Matrix franchise and his Premier League career, as the man himself puts it:-
“A young, sexy, charismatic stud with a disregard for The Man and the powers that be arrives from a desolate wasteland to set peoples minds free and enlighten the masses. The only thing standing in his way is the vacant drones programmed to stop him and a bunch of c**ts in black. My life or The Matrix? It’s hard to tell sometimes pet. I’m not saying the Wachowski lads did it intentionally like, but sometimes people just get transfixed with me. Did y’know I’ve got three proper fit stalkers?”
This isn’t the first time that the tangoed tactician has made audacious and ridiculous claims. Earlier this summer he laughably claimed Hull would be in European competitions “in the near future” (here), that Michael Owen was close to signing for his struggling team (here) and that Rafa Benitez had repeatedly tried to brush against him on the touchline “in a vivid hope some of me mojo would rub off on him – saddo.”
It is alleged that things have gotten so embarrassing that Pearson has banned Brown from giving post match interviews which has incensed Brown, who has told friends “it’s just like the Diana cover up – but goes higher.”
