    Sir Alex Ferguson Half Time Quote During The 1999 European Cup Final - "At the end of this game, the European Cup will be only six feet away from you and you’ll not even able to touch it if we lose. And for many of you that will be the closest you will ever get. Don’t you dare come back in here without giving your all"

    "I don't think I could have a higher opinion of any footballer than I already had of the Irishman, but he rose even further in my estimation at the Stadio Delle Alpi. The minute he was booked and out of the final he seemed to redouble his efforts to get the team there. It was the most emphatic display of selflessness I have seen on a football field. Pounding over every blade of grass, competing if he would rather die of exhaustion than lose he inspired all around him. I felt it was an honour to be associated with such a player" - Sir Alex Ferguson

    "I Don't Play Against Any Particular Team. I Play Against The Idea Of Losing..." - Eric Cantona

    Anyone can find that quote from this season where SAF talk about how most people can't see talent, but he can or something like that?

    ^ My first thoughts exactly. Although Rooney and van Nistelrooy was a fairly decent partnership for us most of the time.

    Alex Ferguson on why he loves Europe: "You can smell the cigars and there's perfume wafting down from the stands. It's wonderful, it's different. I love it. You go to Milan and everyone's so stylish. Every woman who passes you by is Miss World."

    “On you go. I’m no fecking talking to you. He’s a fecking great player. Yous are fecking idiots.” (Sir Alex Ferguson speaking to the media about Juan Sebastian Verón)

    “What the feck are you lot playing at? That is the biggest load of shite I’ve ever seen. Not one of you can look me in the eye, because not one of you deserves to have a say. I can’t believe you’ve come here and decided to toss it off like that crap you’re playing out there.” (Half-time at Sheffield Wednesday, 1998.)

    “When an Italian tells me its pasta on the plate I check under the sauce to make sure. They are the inventors of the smokescreen.”(Alex Ferguson before Manchester United played Inter Milan in the Champions League Quarter Final 1999)

    “I remember the first time I saw him. He was 13 and just floated over the ground like a cocker spaniel chasing a piece of silver paper in the wind” (Alex Ferguson on Ryan Giggs)

    Pippo Inzaghi was born in an offside position.” (Sir Alex Ferguson on Pippo Inzaghi after finding out that Pippo is the most offside player in the football ever.)

    “If he was an inch taller he’d be the best centre half in Britain. His father is 6ft 2in - I’d check the milkman.” (Sir Alex Ferguson on Gary Neville)

    I remember one match when we were winning 2-0 by half-time and he (Sir Alex Ferguson) still gave us the hair-dryer because we should have been four or five up. He reminded us that people had paid money to watch us. "Why don't you respect them?" he screamed. - Patrice Evra

    Love this one (refering to Wenger)

    "That is what a loser looks like. If you want to play for a bunch of losers
    then you can all feck off to Highbury" (SAF just after Arsenal were beaten by some team in the 02/03 season)
