    Famous football quotes

    Stumbled across this on twitter from Sir bobby Robson....

    "What is a club in any case?

    Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. Itís not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes.

    Itís the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

    Itís a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his fatherís hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love."



    What are peoples favourites?


    I've always liked George best's ...... "I spent my money on birds booze and fast cars, the rest is just wasted"

    To offer him a contract seven games into a season, ethically it is not the right thing to do,"

    "It's disrespectful and completely out of order.

    "To approach another coach who is under contract at an A-League club, it is not right to do that.

    "That is not how I would want to run a club."

    My best moment? I have a lot of good moments but the one I prefer is when I kicked the hooligan.
    ERIC CANTONA


    Reporter: Do you have any regrets about what you did at Crystal Palace’s Selhurst Park?
    Cantona: Yes, I regret not kicking him harder.

    Bill Nicholson


    Itís magnificent to be in Europe, and this club Ė a club like Tottenham Hotspur Ė if weíre not in EuropeÖ Weíre nothing. Weíre nothing.


    Intelligence doesnít make you a good footballer. Oxford and Cambridge would have the best sides if that were true. Itís a football brain that matters and that doesnít usually go with an academic brain. In fact I prefer it when it doesnít. I prefer players not to be too good or clever at other things. It means they concentrate on football.


    The public canít be kidded, they know what they want to see, what is good and what is bad and what is just average. At least I believe they do. (See this GVE ya muppet)


    About Bill

    "Bill eventually became Mr Tottenham Hotspur, and produced such a dazzling team at White Hart Lane that they won the double and played the game in a way that was an object lesson to everybody."
    - Brian Clough


    "I have always had the deepest respect for Bill Nicholson as a person and as a manager. The Spurs boss is an honest Yorkshireman and you will go a long way before finding a straighter character than that. Bill has never wavered in his determination to give White Hart Lane fans the best." - Bill Shankly

    My favourite Eric quote is:

    "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it is because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea."
