Brian Clough ones...

What a man he was. Surprised

"I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one" - On his own success.

"For all his horses, knighthoods and championships, he hasn't got two of what I've got. And I don't mean balls" - Referring to Sir Alex Ferguson's failure to win two successive European Cups.

"Don't send me flowers when I'm dead. If you like me, send them while I'm alive" - After the liver transplant which saved his life.

"I only ever hit Roy the once. He got up so I couldn't have hit him very hard" - On dealing with Roy Keane.

"If God had wanted us to play football in the clouds, he'd have put grass up there" - On the importance of passing the ball to feet.

"I can't even spell spaghetti never mind talk Italian. How could I tell an Italian to get the ball? He might grab mine. - On the influx of foreign players.

Ooh aah..... love the man. wink

Eric Cantona:

Probably the most famous quotation in English fotball history :

"When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea" -  At a press conference after his famous kung-fu kick delivered at a Palace fan.

"After his first training session in heaven, George Best, from his favourite right wing, turned the head of God who was filling in at left-back. I would love him to save me a place in his team - George Best that is, not God."
Eric Cantona's interesting tribute to George Best.



George Best:

"In 1969 I gave up women and alcohol. It was the worst 20 minutes of my life."

"I once said Gazza's IQ was less than his shirt number and he asked me: "What's an IQ?" - On Paul Gascoigne.

"I was in for 10 hours and had 40 pints - beating my previous record by 20 minutes." - He compared the blood transfusion to his drinking habits. Surprised


No where close to Clough though. no

That man could get wittier in a Live interview than we can get after sitting in our homes all day long and thinking up comments.
