Quotes From The Book
On Sir Alex Ferguson:
I stormed across the Old Trafford dressing room towards Alex Ferguson, and he was advancing on me with the light of battle in his eye. If we hadn't been forcibly restrained by the likes of skipper Bryan Robson, coach Brian Kidd and assistant boss Archie Knox I dread to think what might have happened. Such an explosive scenario might not sound like the ideal springboard for a trophy-laden future at one of the world's premier sporting institutions, or for an amicable working relationship between a footballer and his boss, but so it proved.
On flying:
My worst experience on an aeroplane was on a Manchester United flight to Norwich on an unbelievably windy day. The turbulence was chronic and all the lads were taking the mick mercilessly out of the likes of myself, Giggs and Incey, who were known to be nervous flyers. As we were about to touch down we were hit by a massive gust of wind and it tipped the plane towards its right-hand side. Suddenly everybody shut up; all the laughing and larking stopped. As the plane banged along and eventually righted itself, there was not a sound. Everybody was schtum. The piss-taking had stopped. We taxied to a halt, everybody looked at each other, and I said: `You're not f****** laughing now, are you?'
On Middlesbrough:
Let me get this straight; I'll always love Middlesbrough FC. I cheered them from the terraces at Ayresome Park from the age of six and the reason I left them for Manchester United in 1989 had nothing to do with greed or selfishness or disloyalty, as some people appeared to believe. It was simply that I was woefully unhappy with my life at the club. It got to the stage where I dreaded getting up in the morning and going in to training, because I could no longer bear to be around the manager, Bruce Rioch. I had to get out.
On Glenn Hoddle:
Often it was the small things which disappointed me about Glenn Hoddle, the new England manager. For instance, he could be insufferably petty about enforcing little rules and regulations which might have been framed for schoolboys, and that was no way to get the best out of a group of seasoned professional sportsmen.
