Thread revival for some choice Ian Holloway quotes:

On Cristiano Ronaldo: “The kid makes you sick. He looks the part, he walks the part, he is the part. He's six-foot something, fit as a flea, good-looking - he's got to have something wrong with him....Hopefully he's hung like a hamster! That would make us all feel better!”

“There was a spell in the second half when I took my heart off my sleeve and put it in my mouth”

“To put it in gentleman's terms, if you've been out for a night and you're looking for a young lady and you pull one, you've done what you set out to do. We didn't look our best today but we've pulled.

Some weeks the lady is good looking and some weeks they're not. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi.

She may not have been the best looking lady we ended up taking home but it was still very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much and let's have coffee.”

I remember Bill Walton would always say shit on the level of

"They're going to have to play defense if they don't want to get scored on"

"To win this game they're going to have to score more points"
