Damn, beat me to it. Its in the foreword to the Cloughie biography. Great quoteAnother Clough classic
Martin O'Neil storms into Cloughs office after finding out he'd been dropped and says 'boss why am I in the second team'
to which Clough responds 'because you're too good for the third.
Loved the J.Sitton documentary, that quote is legendary."But I’m wasting me breath on some of ya. I’m wasting me breath on some of ya.
What did I say to ya, about good players - they want to be good players all the time. Don’t you know how profound that is ? Are you’re not examining the f*cking words ?
Because you’ve had two good performances and you think I’m ‘Bertie Big Bollocks tonight, I’ll f*cking play how I like.’
But you won’t play how you like, because if you play how you like, I’ll f*cking stick the youth team in. If I’m going to take abuse from a bunch of cockroaches behind me, I’ll take abuse by doing it my way.
And that is f***ing conformity, not f***ing non conformity.
So you, you little c*** when I tell you to do something and you, you f*cking big c*** - when I tell you to do something, DO it. And if you come back at me, we’ll have a f*cking right sort out in here.
‘And you can pair up if you like. And you can f*cking pick someone else to help you. And you can bring your f*cking dinner. Because, by the time I’m finished with you, you’ll f*cking need it."
I've heard this and was under the impression that the player was Jimmy Greaves.Was this one an urban myth?
Player to ref “what will you do if I call you a ****?”
Ref “I’ll send you off”
Player “What if I just think you’re a ****?”
Ref “You can think what you want”
Player “In that case I think you’re a ****”
That reminded me of the other Glenn Murray quip which I've been trying to find on google and can't - someone help please. Something like "what do you put your recent goal scoring form down to Glenn?"Gary Lineker: So Glenn, what's the main difference between this Brighton team and the one that last got to a semi-final in 2017?
Glenn Murray: Is that a joke?!
Liam's Granny quote for me. Loved it at the time, never been beaten. And his stop and look at the end of the clip, priceless.
