    "This coach wants to win. So he makes substitutions. It's simple. We played three different formations, so it's a big compliment to the players that they picked up on it so quickly. Let me tell you, the Dutch media thought we would never survive the first round but we have an outstanding spirit and everyone feels we can win it, that it really is possible. To be the captain of this squad makes me incredibly proud. It's a huge honour to be here, at this stage, wearing the armband, because we are a real team."

    “Yes, we have a very strong bond. It has been good since day one. But he has that with almost all of his players. Everyone respects him, everyone believes in him.”

    Patrice Evra not bothered he’s not France captain


    “The captain is Hugo Lloris. I am captain in my club and that’s enough for me, and to be confirmed on the left side for the France national team. I did not need the armband to do my work in the dressing room and on the field. It’s beautiful to be captain, it is honourable, but it is not the most important.”

    “This group of players is very modest. We have outstanding spirit, outstanding atmosphere and that led to victory. Costa Rica are very difficult opponents, otherwise they wouldn’t have ended up in a quarter final.”

    David Moyes on the demand for attacking football (is he against it?!)


    in the Times


    “The group stage finished with a near-record number of goals, yet how many were down to poor defensive play? Countries arrived feeling a big onus to play positive football, maybe because of the setting of Brazil. Nobody has parked the bus. In club football something similar is happening. Supporters everywhere are demanding an attacking emphasis. There’s pressure on managers to entertain. I wonder if tastes and trends are leading to the old defensive arts being forgotten. This is not a vintage era for defenders. Throughout the game, across the world, there’s a shortage of outstanding players at the back. Maybe it’s partly because centre-half and full-back have become increasingly difficult roles to play.”

    Robin Van Persie thinks Holland can win the World Cup


    "I am almost getting goosebumps when I say it, but I believe it really is possible to be a world champion. Every one of us feels that deep down. We still have three games to win this World Cup, but it would really be the ultimate. Unbelievable. Incredible. It makes me incredibly proud to be here, at this stage of a World Cup, wearing the captain's armband. Now we have come back three times to win and that says a lot about this squad. We are a real team. All 23 players are important and also the technical staff. The way they have prepared us is at an unprecedented level. Everybody knows exactly what to do, even when things are changed. Take the time Memphis Depay came into the team. Nobody shouted from the side that we were playing 4-3-3 but everyone knew what was meant."

    Javier Hernandez on the Mexico World Cup defeat


    "It is a very bitter pill for us. We were another step closer to achieving what we had set out to do and, unfortunately, we could not do it. It's part of football, a distraction and then a very dubious penalty that knocks us out and, unfortunately, we have to go home. It's not about blaming the referees. They are only human and he made a bad decision. We cannot do anything about it. But it hurt the aspirations of a country and a team. This defeat was our first at the World Cup and it caused us elimination. That's football and you cannot predict anything. Everyone tried to do their best. In that respect, we're proud of the effort but not satisfied."

    Paul Scholes would like to see Toni Kroos at United (as he suggests Herrera isn’t as good)





    http://www.anrdoezrs.net/click-2051413-11392089


    from http://blog.paddypower.com/2014/06/3...me-weaknesses/


    “I love watching Toni Kroos. I think he’s brilliant. I love the way he controls the ball and controls games. He can really play a pass and has superb vision. Kroos is capable of scoring goals too, from outside the box on either foot. I just wish Man United had signed him (Yes, it is good to see United bringing in new players, but they haven’t signed anything like the quality of Kroos).”

    Rio Ferdinand after Pogba’s goal yesterday - it was a mistake that United let him go, all the first team knew how good he was

    http://www.awin1.com/cread.php?s=293...38381&r=142018


    “Every single member of the first team were in no doubt about how good this kid was and could be. It was a disappointment that he actually left. Under the circumstances it was difficult to work out. It was definitely a mistake on Man United’s behalf letting this kid go. He told me minutes before he left, ‘I want to be the best player in the world.’ I don’t know if he’ll be the best player in the world, but I think he’ll definitely turn out to be the best midfielder in the world. I think it was a particular game and a few players were played out of position in his position and he felt disrespected and then agents and family members might have got involved and the money. His touch is phenomenal, he’s a bit like Vieira in a way. He’s a fantastic footballer.”

    Roy Hodgson thinks Luke Shaw is the next Ashley Cole (we hope good footballer rather than twat)


    "We agonised over those positions, especially in the case of Luke because it involved Ashley Cole who all of us love to bits and think is a great footballer. It was a very hard decision to take to say to him that I was going to take the younger man. I've got to stick to the decision and defend that decision as I really do think Luke has got tremendous quality. I think that he's really an Ashley Cole in the making. I think the experience here will do him good and also I think he will be a very useful player for us in games where we can use that enormous power he has going forward."

    Even for Scousers this is quality, Louis Suarez’s defence to FIFA, it wasn’t a bite it was…


    border="0">



    “At that moment of impact, it forced me to bend my knees, making my body unstable, and falling on top of my opponent. At that moment I hit my face against the player leaving a small bruise on my cheek and a strong pain in my teeth – therefore the referee stopped the game. This is what happened and in no case what has been described as a bite, or attempting to bite, happened.”
