"To put it in gentleman's terms if you've been out for a night and you're looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they're good looking and some weeks they're not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She wasn'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."

 Laughing 

Margaret: Mike, here's the squad list, and I've given copies to the press, like you asked.

Mike: Ah, well done, Margaret, thank you... hey, hang on a minute! There's 28 names here, I only picked 26.

Margaret: Well, that was the list you gave me.

Mike: Tony Hedges, York City? I didn't pick him, love.

Margaret: You must have done, Mike. I wouldn't have put him down, otherwise.

Mike: Never heard of him, have I? And who's this clown? Ron Benson, Plymouth Argyle?

Margaret: Look, Mike, they were on the list of players that you gave me!

Mike: [holding up the cigarette box he wrote the squad list on] Oh, come on, love! Show me where it says "Benson and Hedges" on that.

Post by Guest on Fri May 09, 2014 9:05 pm

Brian Clough could have a thread all of his own...

Here’s 30 of his finest…

1. “Rome wasn’t built in a day, but then again I wasn’t on that particular job.”

2. On dealing with player disagreements: “We talk about it for 20 minutes and then we decide I was right.”

3. “David Seaman is a handsome young man but he spends too much time looking in his mirror rather than at the ball. You can’t keep goal with hair like that.”

4. On aerial football: “If God had wanted us to play football in the clouds, he’d have put grass up there.”

5. On the late Peter Taylor: “I’ve missed him. He used to make me laugh. He was the best diffuser of a situation I have ever known. I hope he’s alright.”

6. On Martin O’Neil’s success at Leicester City: “Anybody who can do anything in Leicester other than knit a jumper has got to be a genius. If he’d been English or Swedish, he’d have walked the England job.”

7. On Manchester United ducking out of the FA Cup to go and play in the 1999 World Club Championship: “United in Brazil? I hope they all get bloody diarrhea.”

8. On Sven getting the England job: “At last we’ve appointed a manager who speaks English better than the players.”

9. After a streaker interrupted Derby’s game against Man Utd: “The Derby players saw more of his balls than the one they’re meant to be playing with!”

10. “The ugliest player I ever signed was Kenny Burns.”

11. On Eric Cantona’s infamous kung-fu kick at Selhurst Park: “I’d have cut his balls off.”

12. “I’m sure the England selectors thought if they took me on and gave me the job, I’d want to run the show. They were shrewd because that’s exactly what I would have done”

13. “If a chairman sacks the manager he initially appointed, he should go as well.”

14. On his biggest career regret: “Telling the entire world and his dog how good a manager I was. I knew I was the best but I should have said nowt and kept the pressure off ‘cos they’d have worked it out for themselves.”

15. “The River Trent is lovely, I know because I have walked on it for 18 years.”

16. “We used to go to the pictures every Saturday night but we had to leave a little bit early and get home and watch Match of the Day. My wife still complains she missed the last five minutes of every film we saw.”

17. “When I go, God’s going to have to give up his favourite chair.”

18. On the new offside rule: “If any one of my players isn’t interfering with play, they’re not getting paid”

19. To the Forest physio after Stuart Pearce suffered a concussion in an FA Cup game: “Tell him he’s Pele and that he’s playing up front for the last 10 minutes.”

20. After Martin O’Neil asked why he’d been dropped to the reserves: “Because you’re too good for the first team.”

21. “Beckham? His wife can’t sing and his barber can’t cut hair.”

22. On guessing who nominated him for a knighthood: “I thought it was my next-door neighbour because I think she felt that if I got something like that I would have to move.”

23. After his liver transplant in 2003: “Don’t send me flowers when I’m dead. If you like me, send them while I’m alive.”

24. On pasty Forest midfielder Brian Rice: “I’m not saying he’s pale and thin, but the maid in our hotel room pulled back the sheets and remade the bed without realising he was still in it!”

25. “Ah yes, Frank Sinatra. He met me once y’know?”

26. “Telling a player to get his hair cut counts as coaching as far as I’m concerned.”

27. “Meeting my wife Barbara was the best thing I ever did.”

28. On meeting new signing Teddy Sheringham: “I’m calling you Edward because that’s what it says on your birth certificate.”

29. “I wouldn’t say I was the best manager in the business…but I was in the top one.”

30. “I want no epitaphs of profound history and all that type of thing. I contributed. I would hope they would say that, and I would hope somebody liked me.”
