Silly Sayings.


Recommended Posts

Got this off the sunderland forum .....................



Was reading somewhere that Totti is Italy's equivalent of Beckham and some fans got together and put all his boobs in a book for charity. They sold thousands with him signing each one.


We should do one for the Geordies with all the stupid sayings from their players past and present as there are quite a few.


Some examples -


"Leeds is a great club and it's been my home for years, even though I live in Middlesbrough."

- Woodgate


"They're the second best team in the world, and there's no higher praise than that."

- Keegan


"I never wanted to leave. I'm here for the rest of my life, and hopefully after that as well."

- Shearer


"The first ninety minutes of a football match are the most important."

- Sir Bobby


"We haven't been scoring goals, but football's not just about scoring goals. It's about winning."

- Shearer again


"We must have had 99 per cent of the match. It was the other three per cent that cost us."

- Gullit



Anybody like to add any odd or daft comments they've heard or read about.

Kevin Keegan again :lol:


"Well, that's like asking me who is on my Christmas card list. I sit down with the wife and I say 'Did they send us one last year or this year', and if they haven't we rip the name up and throw it in the bin. But then, a couple of days after Christmas the card might arrive late so we do a card for them on the 28th and date it the 22nd and send it off and hope they don't notice...I haven't a clue what I'm talking about."

Alex Ferguson is the best manager i've ever had at this level, well he's the only manager i've had at this level ... David Beckham.


The game will be shown on match of the day later this evening, so if you dont want to know the result look away now while we show you Tony Adams lifting the trophy for Arsenal ... Steve Rider.

The game is 0-0 at half-time. When we get the second half started, its like the game will start all over again, just there is only 45min time left -Pubi Wallenius(finnish commentator)


Well , about Andreasen, you have to ask from Casagrande(TPS chief executive) I can give you number. Last thing ive heard is that he left to visit Denmark. Then Ive told he went to Holiday on south with his girlfriend. I guess hes banging her on Mallorca atm when were having games. But we dont need him, he has done just 5 goals for us in 10 games... (Pasi Rautianen, TPS coach)




(TPS getting back to Espoo just 3 days later to playing 3rd division team on finnish cup): 2 trips over here in a week. I propably should say that there hard game coming. I shouldnt be arrogant . Its cup and were going as long as we can. Its nice to visit in Espoo. Im not perfect myself either. I found my wife frome these neighborhoods also. Everybody makes mistakes (Pasi Rautiainen TPS)




I cant train goalkeepers. At the winter Rapa Rajamäki(2nd coach) were training our keepers. I were watching that stuff couple of times- sorry this will be really stupid- , but i asked him that are these relly good training for them? Rapa said: yes these are so f'''' good, i just scored them 10 times on sidenetgoals. Seriously, were those good for them. Rapa is celebrating goals there. He were shooting full power. Those prolly were good training for Fat Rapa, but not for keepers (Pasi Rautianen TPS)

"We deserved to win this game after hammering them 0-0 in the first half."

"Think of a number between 10 and 11."

daft as a brush? can someone explain possibly? :D

laughin teacakes?


Because a brush uses its 'head' to sweep things along the floor, whereas logic, withought an instrument, makes use sweep stuff with our feet. So the brush is daft because it supposedly uses the 'wrong' end. :) was on the OneShow a few months back.
