The Shankly one reminds me of when he was asked whether it was true he'd taken his wife to watch Rochdale on their Wedding Anniversary. He gave the reporter a withering look and said "Son, who on earth gets married during the football season?" Then paused for effect and added "It was her birthday!". Then paused for effect again and said "And anyway, it was Rochdale reserves".

They don't make them like him any more!!

Ferguson said: Youve got that issue at Blackburn of an agent involved and deciding the future of the club, Jerome Anderson, he couldnt pick his nose. Its baffling and its a serious threat to how clubs get run and how they conduct themselves.

Steve Kean on Ryan Nelsen: “He's in a bad way. I've just been to see him. He's in traction. We need experienced players in the team and I can't wait to get him back, but I doubt he'll be let out before the end of the season."

Four days later Nelsen made his debut for Spurs.

I remember a story from a guy called Jim Lambie who managed several clubs in Scotland and was known for his sharp wit and humour. One of his players needed treatment for a head injury and came off the pitch near the technical area. Lambie shouted to the physio 'how is he'? The physio shouted back that the player couldn't remember who he was. Quick as a flash Lambie responded with 'tell him he is Pele and throw him back on'.
