9780091923334: The Book of Football Quotations

"Footballers are no different from human beings."  —Graham Taylor

"I'm a Nigerian and I will remain a Nigerian until I die."  —Kanu

"The girls like Frank Lampard and I'd see something in him if I was that way."  —John Terry

"I didn't watch the England vs. Argentina game in 1998—it was past my bedtime."  —Theo Walcott

"My ankle injury is a real pain in the arse."  —David Prutton

"Five per cent of me's disappointed to finish second, but the other 50 per cent is happy we've qualified."  — Michael Owen

"Wayne Rooney has signed a deal to do five books, which is an awful lot of crayons."  —Radio DJ Johnnie Walker

A bigger, better edition of the greatest quotable reference the game has ever had, the eighth edition includes quotes from everyone—Shakespeare to Shankly, Camus to Cantona, Busby to Beckham—who has made an apt, pithy, or comical comment about soccer. And not just soccer players and managers either—fans, pundits, groundsmen, directors, and wives all get to have their say too. Every subject is covered—from tactical debates to changing lifestyles—to produce a sometimes hilarious and always thought-provoking commentary on the game. Anyone who thought "sick as a parrot" and "over the moon" was as profound as it got, will be pleasantly surprised by the elegance and insight on display. Contributions include gems from all the old masters: Cloughie, Tommy Docherty, Jimmy Greaves and George Best. And new quotes from the likes of Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, Didier Drogba, John Terry, Cesc Fabregas, Steven Gerrard, Joey Barton, Jose Mourinho, Ian Holloway, Rafa Benitez, Delia Smith and Simon Jordan.
