man_on_moon.gif1 ‘There have been cup shocks before but this would be up there with man landing on the moon.’
Aidy Boothroyd knows how to instill confidence in his Watford team. Man U went on to beat the Hornets 4-1 in the FA Cup semis. And wasn’t the moon landing meticulously planned, rather than a shock?
2 ‘With a team you live in a tunnel and sometimes you have to go down and flirt with hell to see how much you can deal with that, so that you become stronger. But you go quickly to hell and very slowly to heaven.’
Arsene Wenger gets all ‘When ze seagulls follow the trawler’ on our ass

3 ‘Nobody can stop him. Probably the only way to do it is to kill him. When he runs at you, you try to grab his shirt or do whatever you can. But he just goes past you, makes fun out of you and leaves you kicking the air…’
Patrice Evra on Man U team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo

4 ‘I think we deserved the three points.’

5 ‘When you are in a dogfight you have to fight like dogs. If it is a gunfight you can’t afford to go in with just a knife.’
