QUOTES OF THE WEEK
Saturday 02 December 1995
n I honestly thought I was going to die. Warren Stowe, the British boxer who had to dive for cover when gunmen opened fire during his middleweight bout in Cape Town.
n I find it very difficult to come to terms with the fact that the management of the tour looked at me as one of the guys who tried to create disharmony in the camp. Brian Lara after pulling out of the West Indies' tour of Australia.
n It's time he [Lara] grew up and realised that West Indies cricket is bigger than one man. Michael Holding, former West Indies fast bowler.
n I have got more ability than anyone else left in the tournament. Ronnie O'Sullivan after moving into the quarter-finals of the Royal Liver UK Championship in Preston.
n We might as well be 400 points behind, the way we are going at the moment. Dean Bell, the Leeds coach, after his team's defeat at Warrington leaves them four points behind Wigan in the Championship race.
n It's left us with a massive hole to fill. Vik Akers, the Arsenal women's coach, on the news that forward Marieanne Spacey is out for the season because she is pregnant.
n I'm sorry, I can't talk to you now, or it will be full of swear words. John Hook on being knocked out of the qualification rounds for the Embassy World Professional Darts Championship by Deta Hedman, after women were allowed to enter for the first time.
