It wasn't the greatest day at the office for Dorking Wanderers as they lost 5-0 at home to Wrexham in the National League, but it wasn't the scoreline that fans were focusing on.
The two sides are at opposite ends of the table, with the Welsh side backed by Hollywood duo Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney pushing for automatic promotion, while Dorking are already looking at a tough relegation scrap. And this was reflected in the scoreline on Saturday as Wrexham ran riot, with Ollie Palmer scoring a hat-trick in their 5-0 win.
But the difference between the pair has really stood out via the form of the post-match interview, as Dorking boss Marc White produced a stunning boob analogy to describe their poor performance. Wrexham may be in dreamland following their ownership deal, but this has certainly reminded them of where they currently are.

Following a humiliating defeat, Dorking boss White said: "We can't defend for s***. And at the moment, if we fell in a barrel full of tits we'd come out sucking our thumb, that's the bottom line."
Fans could not believe what they were hearing from the Dorking boss, although some die-hard supporters thought that the analogy was kind after a painful Saturday afternoon. "Mate, I can't believe what i've just heard," one fan said.
"It caught me off guard when I put it on," another added. But it seems as though White has earned the respect of all supporters, as one fan's opinion was heavily backed. "Absolutely fantastic this bloke, a massive breath of fresh air. Would gladly get this man a pint when you come up to Wrexham. Refreshingly honest."
"I f****** love this guy and I’d never heard of Dorking 5 months ago," another added. And there may be a good reason for that, as the rise of Dorking has been rather spectacular.
After being founded in 1999, Dorking have been promoted 12 times over the last 23 seasons, and are now in the fifth tier of English football. White started the club back then with a group of mates, and now in 2022 he is managing them in the National League.
White said when asked about why he started Dorking: "I thought: ‘Why not start something with a few friends, have a bit of a laugh?’" And his rise has been described as the 'real-life Football Manager' as dreams have started to become reality for the non-league minnows.
