Tino arrived back in Newcastle at 3.30 this afternoon. If we had been at home I might have fetched him on in the second half! I'm not exactly sure what happened but I'm sure he'll tell us.

I was nervous driving to the game, but once I got there and took in the atmosphere in the dressing-room I didn't feel like a new manager.

Steve Coppell on his first game in charge of Manchester City.

Technically the game here is not too bad, but it is played at such a pace, perhaps because of the energy generated by the crowd, that sometimes it is difficult even to control the ball.

Arsene Wenger, making his first assessment as Arsenal coach.

We aren't kidding ourselves - there is still a lot of hard work to be done. In the first half we were outplayed, and if they had scored it might have been different.

George Graham, under no illusions after his first win as Leeds manager.

He tried to be too clever and got caught. He's usually the best kicker in the League but on this occasion he got a bit above himself.

David Pleat on Kevin Pressman's howler at Selhurst Park.

I left him out because he had not trained for about two weeks. He was disappointed - I'd be disappointed if he wasn't - but he responded like a real professional.
