I looked in the mirror and I didn't like what I saw. Tony Adams, the England and Arsenal defender, confesses to being an alcoholic.

Friendship and loyalty have been smashed. Andy Ripley, former England No 8, on the state of British rugby.

My team talk was very simple. Let's just have an old-fashioned match, get the right result and go out for a few drinks afterwards. It seemed to work better than all the tactical stuff. Ron Atkinson on Coventry's win over Leeds on Saturday.

Vinnie Jones is just a self-hyped personality. Gary Lineker, former England captain and now a BBC sports presenter.

Lineker has the charisma of a jellyfish - and he is just as wet. He is a jellyfish without a sting. Faxed response from Everyone at Wimbledon FC to Lineker.
