David Beckham

'I would not be bothered if we lost every game as long as we won the league.'
Mark Viduka

David Beckham

'If you don't believe you can win, there is no point in getting out of bed at the end of the day.'
Neville Southall

'I faxed a transfer request to the club at the beginning of the week, but let me state that I don't want to leave Leicester '
Stan Collymore

'I was watching the Blackburn game on TV on Sunday when it flashed on the screen that George (Ndah) had scored in the first minute at Birmingham . My first reaction was to ring him up. Then I remembered he was out there playing.'
