Big Ron-isms - from the Footballing World

He can’t speak turks, but you can tell he’s excited

The 33 or 34 year olds will be 36 or 37 by the time the next world cup comes around, if they’re not careful

There’ll be no siestas in Madrid tonight

They compare Steve McMananman to Steve Heighway and he’s nothing like him, but I can see why – its because he’s a bit different. They are both called Steve

In some ways, cramp is worse than a broken leg. But Leukaemia is worse still. Probably.

Despite his white boots he has real pace and aggression

Goalkeepers aren’t born today until they’re in their late 20’s or 30’s and sometimes not even then. Or so it would appear. To me anyway. Don’t you think the same?

The substitute is about to come on. He’s a player who was left out of the starting line-up today. There were others as well.

The ref was vertically 15 yards away. He has a moustache

England have the best fans in the world and Scotland’s fans are second to none

The tide is very much in our court now

Its like a toaster, the refs shirt pocket. Every time there’s a tackle up pops a yellow card, I’m talking metaphysically now of course

I’d love to be a mole on the wall in the Liverpool dressing room at half time. And not for the reasons your thinking Clive.

The game has gone rather scrappy as both sides realise they could win this match or lose it or draw it even

I don’t think there’s anyone bigger or smaller than Maradona. You seen the pictures as well Clive. Like an acorn I tells ya, just like an acorn

I know what is around the corner. I just don’t know where the corner is

You can’t do better than go away from home and get a draw

…..using his strength. And that is his strength, his strength. You could say that is his strong point.

Chile have three options – they could win or they could lose. Its upto them, the tide is in their court now

I came to Nantes two years ago and its much the same today, except that it is totally different. The red light district is still the same mind you.

Argentina are the second best team in the world, and there’s no higher praise than that

A tremendous strike which hit the defender on the arm – and it nearly came off

The good news for Nigeria is that they are 2 nil down very early in the game

That decision, for me, was almost certainly definitely wrong

I think Ron will be pulling him off at half time and no mistakin

You’d have thought the Moroccans would have learnt their lesson by now. You can’t win games without scoring goals

You’d have thought the Cameroonians would have learnt their lesson by now. You can’t get away with such brutal tackles. Its just not cricket you know.

How about a few Keeganisms just to finish things off completely :) :D

'It's like a toaster, the ref's shirt pocket. Every time there's a tackle, up pops a yellow card.'

'The ref was vertically 15 yards away.'

'There are two schools of thought on the way the rest of this half is going to develop; everybody's got their own opinion...'

'I don't think there's anyone bigger or smaller than Maradona.'

'England can end the millenium as it started - as the greatest football nation in the world.'

'I'm not disappointed - just disappointed.'

'The tide is very much in our court now.'

'Chile have three options - they could win or they could lose.'

'That would have been a goal if it wasn't saved.'

'I came to Nantes two years ago and it's much the same today, except that it's totally different.'

'A tremendous strike which hit the defender full on the arm - and it nearly came off.'

'The good news for Nigeria is that they're two-nil down very early in the game'

'The substitute is about to come on - he's a player who was left out of the starting line-up today.'

'I know what is around the corner - I just don't know where the corner is. But the onus is on us to perform and we must control the bandwagon.'

'Hungary is very similar to Bulgaria. I know they're different countries...'

'The 33 or 34-year-olds will be 36 or 37 by the time the next World Cup comes around, if they're not careful.'

'England have the best fans in the world and Scotland's fans are second-to-none'

'It's understandable that people are keeping one eye on the pot and another up the chimney.'

'I'd love to be a mole on the wall in the Liverpool dressing room at half-time.'

'It could be far worse for me if it was easy for me.'

'Young Gareth Barry - he's young'

'They're the second best team in the world, and there's no higher praise than that.'

'You're not just getting international football, you're getting world football'

'Luis Figo is totally different to David Beckham, and vice versa'

'They don't come every three days, like they come after this one'

'I want more from David Beckham. I want him to improve on perfection.'

'There's a slight doubt about only one player, and that's Tony Adams, who definitely won't be playing tomorrow.'

'We have spent three matches chasing a football.'

'It's no longer an 11 man game.'

'The Germans only have one player under 22, and he's 23'

'I've had an interest in racing all my life, or longer really.'

'We managed to wrong a few rights.'

'I'll never play at Wembley again, unless I play at Wembley again'
