We want to run, we want to be defiant, we want to shove it up them. Charlie Brooks, trainer of eventual runner-up, Suny Bay.

They can put it on again but the magic has gone. Stan Clarke, trainer, after Saturday's Grand National was called off - but before his horse, Lord Gyllene, won on Monday.

I thought it might not have been the same atmosphere for the race, and it wasn't. It was better. Tony Dobbin, jockey of Lord Gyllene.

They told me it was more than their budget for the entire season. Darren Grewcock, Martin Johnson's agent, after Brive, who had sought to sign the England lock, had been told his present earnings.

Arsene Wenger has been in Japan. He doesn't know anything about English football and the demands of our game. He's at a big club, well Arsenal used to be a big club, and maybe next year he could be in the same situation. He should keep his mouth shut - firmly shut. Alex Ferguson, Manchester United manager, after his Arsenal counterpart disagreed with his views on United's fixture pile-up.

Lose at this time of the season and you cut your own throats. Ferguson, before his side's 3-2 home defeat to Derby.

The present United side would have beaten the Sixties team 10-0. Peter Schmeichel, present Manchester United goalkeeper.

Peter's got a fair point. After all, we're all over 50 now, aren't we? Nobby Stiles, Sixties stalwart.

I am absolutely knackered and I never kicked a ball. Martin O'Neill, Leicester manager, after his side's last-minute equaliser against Middlesbrough in the Coca-Cola Cup final.

It's not my problem. Jacques Villeneuve displays a distinct lack of sympathy for team-mate Heinz-Harald Frentzen, who has failed to impress since replacing Damon Hill in the Williams team.

It's going great this season. I haven't dropped a shot, I haven't missed a cut. It's been wonderful. David Feherty, former golfer, now a television commentator in the United States.

That was an absolute disaster - our worst performance of the season and our most disappointing performance in Europe. Roy Evans, Liverpool manager, on the 3-0 defeat by Paris St-Germain in the Cup-Winners' Cup semi-final first leg.
