Found some more. Some are glorious. 
 

Ian Rush – I couldn’t settle in Italy, it was like living in a foreign country.

Glenn Hoddle – When a player gets to 30, so does his body.

Kevin Keegan – Argentina won’t be at Euro 2000 because they’re from South America.
 

Tom Ferrie – Dumbarton player Steve McCahill has limped off with a badly cut forehead.
 

David Beckham – I definitely want Brooklyn to be christened, but I don’t know into what religion yet.

Although in today’s football this would have serious repercussions.....this is hilarious as opposed to stupid. 
 

 Partick Thistle manager John Lambie, when advised by medical staff that  his concussed striker did not know who he was, replied “well f**king tell him he’s Pele and get him back on the pitch”

 The Brazilians were South American, and the Ukranians will be more European.    Phil Neville

When you are 4-0 up you should never lose 7-1.    Lawrie McMenemy.

If history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same thing.  Terry Venables

When a player gets to 30, so does his body.  Glenn Hoddle

 If that had gone in, it would have been a goal.   David Coleman

 It was the game that put the Everton ship back on the road.  Alan Green.

I liked the Ally McLead one, like Helen of Troy it got thousands of people to travel. 🙂

I’ve got nothing to say. Any questions? Roy Hodgson.

 

We must have had 99% of the game. It was the other 3% that cost us the match.   Ruud Gullit.

 

I always used to put my right boot on first and then, obviously, my right sock.

His passes should be addressed ‘To whom it may concern.’ 😀

"We are the best in the world! We are the best in the world! We have beaten England 2-1 in football! It is completely unbelievable! We have beaten England! England, birthplace of giants. Lord Nelson, Lord Beaverbrook, Sir Winston Churchill, Sir Anthony Eden, Clement Attlee, Henry Cooper, Lady Diana—we have beaten them all. We have beaten them all. Maggie Thatcher can you hear me?...Your boys took a hell of a beating! Your boys took a hell of a beating!"

Bjørge Lillelien, a Norwegian TV Commentator going crazy after Norway defeated England 2-1 in Sept 81 after a World Cup Qualifier in Oslo.

Michael Owen saying he though Carlisle would have watered the pitch before the game, days after the biggest flooding the city had ever seen. Thick as pigsh*t.

This entire topic could really be a collection of his quotes and it would still be hilarious. He’s such a poor pundit.

Spurs didn’t deserve to lose the game in the way they did.

They were the better team throughout the game - they dominated possession. But granted, Chelsea were much more potent in front of goal 

"Spurs have dominated that game. Chelsea were on the back foot for the majority of it - hanging on."

This thread needs a few more Michael Owen quotes. 
 

 What a shot! That’s completely unstoppable but the goalkeeper has got to do better for me.

“Alderweireld played really well last year for Tottenham, let’s hope he can transfer that form to Spurs this season.”
 

“That’s a fantastic penalty, but he’ll be gutted it went wide.”
 

“It’s hit the facial part of his head, there.”
 

“That shot is impossible. I saw Yaya Toure do it once.”

Brian Clough describing the Poland goalkeeper, Jan Tomaszewski, as a ‘circus clown in gloves,’ he reassured all watching England fans that everything would be fine. England would win, and qualify for the World Cup.  Wembley in  October 1073
 

The Polish keeper had the game of his life.       A 1-1 draw took Poland to the 1974 Finals, where they finished Third.
