I remember Ron Atkinson saying “look at this lad here , he gets the ball and sold him a lollipop “”

after someone did a step over trick/skill

Big Ron again - It's not my policy to comment on referees and I'm not making an exception for this idiot.

My manager used to scream at me to 'get up his arse'. I took him at his word and duly obliged. I wasn't picked again.

The manager asked the physio how he was and was told he didn't really know who he was. Quick as a flash he shouted "tell him he's Pele then and throw him back on".

One of my all time favourites from Bill Shankly:

“Of course I didn’t take my wife to see Rochdale as an anniversary present. It was her birthday. Would I have got married in the football season? Anyway, it was Rochdale reserves.”

Another is the exchange between Shankly and Chris Lawler, apparently the quiet man at Anfield, Shankly was taking part in a 7 a side game with makeshift goals, Lawler was carrying an injury and was watching. The session had gone on for a while and the next goal was the winner. Shankly took a shot and an argument broke out whether it was a goal. When Lawler was asked to decide, he said sorry boss it was just wide. Shankly let rip “Bloody hell you never open your mouth for years and the first time you speak, you tell a bloody lie”

ian holloway on qpr performance

She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee” – on the “ugly” win against Chesterfield
