Soccer: a thinking man’s game

From The Seattle Times: Sideline Chatter:

As added proof that soccer headers kill brain cells, The Mirror of London offered up a string of oratorical boot brilliance through the ages, including:

• Gary Lineker (Leicester): “There’s no in between — you’re either good or bad. We were in between.”

• Mark Viduka (Leeds): “I would not be bothered if we lost every game, as long as we won the league.”

• Ronnie Whelan (Liverpool): “He’s put on weight and I’ve lost it, and vice versa.”

• Stuart Pearce (Nottingham Forest): “I can see the carrot at the end of the tunnel.”

• Alan Shearer (Newcastle): “I’ve never wanted to leave. I’m here for the rest of my life, and hopefully after that as well.”

• Les Ferdinand (Leicester): “I was surprised, but I always say nothing surprises me in football.”

  1. I’ve heard it said that in England football (soccer that is) is a game gentlemen play and thugs watch, whereas Rugby is a game thugs play and gentlemen watch. [Originally posted: March 26.]
