Italia 90. Bobby Robson speaking to Gazza about playing against Lothar Matthaus.

Sir Bobby: "You're going to be up against the best midfield player in the world today."

Gazza: "No......he is."

"The greatest mistake you can make in life is to continually be afraid you will make one."

Oh hell, any of Keegan's would make this list. If I had to choose one, it would be:

(on describing Emile Heskey, I think)

"...he's using his strength. And that's his strength, his strength."

It's almost a one line novel. Perfect.

Brian Clough went to watch Garry Birtles playing for Retford.  He said afterwards “that the oxo he had at half-time was better than Birtles”.

Well he still bought him and won the European Cup twice with him.  We also bought Garry as well! 😋

Cloughie climbs in to bed at night and his wife Barbara says, “God your feet are cold!” to which he replies, “It’s alright love, you can call me Brian.”

“He’s six foot something, fit as a flea, good looking – he’s got to have something wrong with him. Hopefully he’s hung like a hamster – That would make us all feel better. Having said that, me missus has got a pet hamster at home, and his member’s massive.”

Hand bags, man bags, bum bags, bean bags, some kind of bags.

Sean Dyche

Macca, Tait, Toto, Gowling, Robertson, Arnold, Dis, Clay, Nolan, Podge, Omar.

The best starting XI in my lifetime.

Anything by Shankly, my favourite being:

"If Everton were playing down the bottom of my garden, I'd draw the curtains".

Of course then there is the Shankly quote:

"That Grimsby team was pound for pound, and class for class, the best football team I have seen in England since the war. In the league they were in they played football nobody else could play. Everything was measured, planned and perfected and you could not wish to see more entertaining football."

If you don’t facking like it don’t come.

Scott said

The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'
