I had almost forgotten when I won my last match here. Was it before or after the war? Alain Robidoux, whose last win at the Crucible was in 1992, after his first-round victory over Brian Morgan.

I have a vision of the future. We will be back. Alex Ferguson, Manchester United manager, after defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the European Cup semi-final.

Their attacks were like a whirlwind that came over us. Manchester United played a great game, but they forgot to score the goals. Ottmar Hitzfeld, Dortmund coach.

They were prepared to die for the cause out there and that is perhaps something we might have to learn. Phil Neville, United defender.

Seven of our players who played are aged 23 or under. They will learn. And the next 10 years will be ours. Eric Cantona.

Those who ever saw Denis Compton bat have an imperishable memory of the greatest cavalier of cricket. John Major on the death at 78 of a sporting hero.
