Unassailable football wisdom No. 427

How I love this game, not least for its seemingly endless fund of indisputably sound advice.

However, should you harbour any lingering doubts about the depth of Jim Jeffries' tactical acumen, following Hearts' recent performances, may I suggest the following routine droplets of proven football wisdom: "Try getting it up the field, son!"; "stop letting them take the ball off you!"; "do something with it!"; "if you don't concede you can't lose!", "make 'em work for it!"... and my personal favourite: "no-one ever won a football match by failing to attack!"

That last pearl was obviously generated by someone who never bothered to watch Rangers in the UEFA Cup in 2008. Well, until they met Zenit Saint Petersburg in the final, anyway.
