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.

på tal om Holloway
Leicester & Holloway part company
Ian Holloway
Holloway joined Leicester as manager in November 2007

Leicester City have confirmed that manager Ian Holloway has left the club by mutual consent.

The Foxes were relegated to League One on the final day of last season.

Holloway joined Leicester from fellow Championship outfit Plymouth Argyle in November 2007 but won just nine out of his 32 games in charge.

“We both felt it would be in the best interests of Leicester City and its long-term future if we amicably parted company,” said chairman Milan Mandaric.

“This has been a very difficult decision for all parties but, we have agreed that the time is now right,” he added.

“I would like to place on record my thanks for the way in which Ian has worked tirelessly over the last seven months to try to bring success to this club.

“I could not fault either his commitment or effort to the cause but the last few weeks have been the most disappointing during my tenure within the game.

“My energies will now be fully focused on getting the right man, firstly to stop the decline we have suffered in the last few years, and secondly, to take us forward in the future with that level of stability which we all crave.”

Leicester have gone through six managers in the past year, with Holloway himself spending £2m in the January transfer window.

I gave 100% to the cause but unfortunately we ran out of time

Ian Holloway

But despite bringing in the likes of Steve Howard and Barry Hayles, Leicester were still consigned to relegation.

And relegation to League One, the first time that Leicester have been relegated to the third tier of English football, ultimately cost Holloway his job.

“Leicester City is a marvellous club and I am as devastated as anybody that this great club suffered relegation,” said Holloway.

“I gave 100% to the cause but unfortunately we ran out of time.

“The fans here are a different class and deserve a lot, lot better.

“I’d like to wish everyone connected with Leicester City well for the future – the club will always remain close to my heart.”

Some great Everton quotes:

“I’d break every bone in my body for any club I play for but I’d die for Everton”
Dave Hickson

“..with Manchester City it was a love affair, but with Everton it’s more like a marriage”
Howard Kendall

“Everton are the peoples club in Liverpool. The people on the street support Everton.”

“Everton are a bigger club than Liverpool. Everywhere you go on Merseyside you bump into Everton supporters.”

“Liverpool are Magic, Everton are Tragic”

när man pratar citat så måste Shanks vara med…även lite andra Liverpool-profiler och lite andra profiler ;)

Bill Shankly :
“Of course I didn’t take my wife to see Rochdale as an anniversary present. It was her birthday. Would I have got married in the football season? Anyway, it was Rochdale reserves.”

Bill Shankly :
“Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.”

Bill Shankly :
“If a player is not interfering with play or seeking to gain an advantage, then he should be.”

Bob Paisley :
“If you’re in the penalty area and don’t know what to do with the ball, put it in the net and we’ll discuss the options later.”

Bill Shankly :
“If Everton were playing at the bottom of the garden, I’d pull the curtains.”

Ian Rush (on his time at Juventus) :
“It was like playing in a foreign country.”

Bob Paisley :
“Still we’ve had the hard times too – one year we finished second.”

Bill Shankly (to Tommy Smith) :
“You son, you could start a riot in a graveyard.”

Bill Shankly (on the day he signed Ian St John) :
“Son, you’ll do well here as long as you remember two things. Don’t over-eat and don’t lose your accent.”

Roy Evans :
“I’ve been on this planet for 45 years, and have supported Liverpool for 42 of them.”

Bill Shankly (to Kevin Keegan) :
“Just go out and drop a few hand-grenades all over the place, son.”

Bill Shankly (on Brian Clough) :
“He’s worse than the rain in Manchester. At least the rain in Manchester stops occasionally.”

Bill Shankly (to Tommy Smith, who tried to explain that his bandaged knee was injured) :
“Take that bandage off. And what do you mean about YOUR knee? It’s Liverpool’s knee!”

Bill Shankly (to the journalist suggesting Liverpool were in difficulties) :
“Ay, here we are with problems at the top of the league.”

Bill Shankly (to a translator, when being surrounded by gesticulating Italian journalists) :
“Just tell them I completely disagree with everything they say!”

Bill Shankly (about the “This is Anfield” plaque) :
“It’s there to remind our lads who they’re playing for, and to remind the opposition who they’re playing against.”

Bill Shankly (to Alan Ball, who’d just signed for Everton) :
“Don’t worry, Alan. At least you’ll be able to play close to a great team!”

A scout told Shanks about a young player who he’d given a trial at Liverpool “He has football in his blood,” the disappointed scout complained.
“You may be right,” Shanks said, “but it hasn’t reached his legs yet!”

Bill Shankly (at Dixie Dean’s funeral) :
“I know this is a sad occasion but I think that Dixie would be amazed to know that even in death he could draw a bigger crowd than Everton can on a Saturday Afternoon.”

Bill Shankly (when told he had never experienced playing in a derby) :
“Nonsense! I’ve kicked every ball, headed out every cross. I once scored a hat-trick; One was lucky, but the others were great goals.”

Bill Shankly (after beating Everton in the ’71 cup semi) :
“Sickness would not have kept me away from this one. If I’d been dead, I would have had them bring the casket to the ground, prop it up in the stands and cut a hole in the lid.”

Bill Shankly (to a photographer who suggested Brian Clough was outspoken) :
“Laddie, that man scored 200 goals in 270 matches – an incredible record – and he has won cup after cup as a manager. When he talks, pin back your ears.”

Bill Shankly (to a Liverpool fan) :
“Where are you from?”
“I’m a Liverpool fan from London.”
“Well laddie . . . . What’s it like to be in heaven?”

Bill Shankly :
“A lot of football success is in the mind. You must believe you are the best and then make sure that you are. In my time at Liverpool we always said we had the best two teams on Merseyside, Liverpool and Liverpool Reserves.”

Bill Shankly :
“If you are first you are first. If you are second, you are nothing.”

Bill Shankly :
“The trouble with referees is that they know the rules, but they do not know the game.”

Bill Shankly (to a reporter in the 60′s) :
“Yes, Roger Hunt misses a few, but he gets in the right place to miss them.”

Bill Shankly (after a hard fought 1-1 draw) :
“The best side drew.”

Bill Shankly (after a 0-0 draw at Anfield) :
“What can you do, playing against 11 goalposts?”

Jock Stein (on Shanks) :
“I don’t believe everything Bill tells me about his players. If they were that good, they’d not only have won the European Cup but the Ryder Cup, the Boat Race and even the Grand National!”

Phil Boersma (on the moment Souness told him that he was having a heart bypass) :
“He’s a vain bastard, I thought he was going to tell me that he was having a nose job.”

Bill Shankly (talking to a Liverpool trainee) :
“The problem with you, son, is that all your brains are in your head”

Robbie Fowler :
“Anyone who doesn’t learn from Ian Rush needs shooting”

Bill Shankly (on Ian St.John) :
“He’s not just the best centre-forward in the British Isles, but the only one.”

Ian St. John (on his winning goal in the 1965 FA Cup Final) :
“The goal looked as big as the Mersey Tunnel”

Bob Paisley (on Billy Liddell) :
“Bill was so strong it was unbelievable. You couldn’t shake him off the ball. It didn’t matter where he was playing, though I suppose his best position was outside-left. He could go round you, or past you, or even straight through you sometimes!”

Billy Liddell (on ex-Scotland partner, Billy Steele) :
“He made it clear he couldn’t care less how the team got on provided he had a good game.”

Ian Callaghan (on Ronnie Moran) :
“I don’t know how I would have managed without him. It was a big step up playing in the first team, and I don’t know how I would have coped without someone keeping an eye on me and helping me out of difficult situations. I soon learned that at Liverpool, we were essentially part of a team and depended on each other.”

Bill Shankly (on Ian Callaghan) :
“He typifies everything that is good in football, and he has never changed. You could stake your life on Ian.”

Tommy Smith :
“I said to Kevin (Keegan) ‘I’ll go near post’ and he replied ‘No, just go for the ball’.”

Emlyn Hughes :
“Liverpool are magic …. Everton are tragic.”

Ray Clemence :
“Sometimes I feel I’m hardly wanted in this Liverpool team. If I get two or three saves to make I’ve had a busy day.”

Kevin Keegan :
“The only thing I fear is missing an open goal in front of the Kop. I would die if that were to happen. When they start singing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ my eyes start to water. There have been times when I’ve actually been crying while I’ve been playing”.

Steve McManaman’s father (1991) :
“We’ve another boy who’s ten and if he sees a tin can on his way to school, he steps over it. Steven was the opposite.”

Brian Glanville (football writer) :
“Molby looked corpulent enough to be playing darts for Denmark.”

Hugh McIlvanney (on Jan Molby) :
“Beneath the drayman’s body, his feet remain as nimble as a ballet dancer’s.”

Tommy Docherty (on Mark Wright) :
“He’d get an injury of he went on Question of Sport.”

Dave Lancaster (Chesterfield striker, after their 4-4 Coke Cup draw at Anfield) :
“I thought there might be eight goals but I never thought we would get four of them.”

Anfield badge (1990) :
“There’s only one United – the biscuit.”

Phil Thompson (On Sky Sports, about Rene Higuita’s ‘scorpion’ save from Jamie Redknapp in the England vs Colombia match September 1995) : “It was like Bruce Grobbelaar with hair.”

Steve McMahon (1991) :
“I’d kick my own brother if necessary … it’s what being a professional footballer is all about.”

Graeme Souness (On Robbie Fowler, when the press asked to talk to him [Fowler] after his 5-goal demolition of Fulham, 1993):
“He’s not coming out. He says he wouldn’t know what to say.”

Robbie Fowler (On how he celebrated the above feat, 1993) :
“After the Fulham game, I went round the chippy with my mates and got a big kiss from my mum when I got home!”

John Aldridge (On Orlando, Florida during the mega-hot World Cup, 1994) :
“It gets like this in Liverpool when you’re on the ferry and the sun reflects off the Mersey.”

Roy Evans (On why he didn’t buy Chris Sutton, 1994) :
“If I’d agreed to pay a 21-year-old who hadn’t played for England 12,000 pounds, I would have had 10 guys knocking on my door saying that they were full internationals and that they wanted the same money.”

Bill Shankly :
“Football is a simple game based on the giving and taking of passes, of controlling the ball and of making yourself available to receive a pass. It is terribly simple.”

Ron Saunders :
“My team won’t freeze in the white-hot atmosphere of Anfield.”

Ron Jones (Radio 5) :
“Ian Rush is as quick as a needle.”

Trevor Brooking :
“Merseyside derbies usually last 90 minutes and I’m sure today’s won’t be any different.”

Kevin Keegan :
“They compare Steve McManaman to Steve Heighway and he’s nothing like him, but I can see why – it’s because he’s a bit different.”

“I don´t want to wake up tomorrow and be away from cup”
