10 Football quotes that will change your life

*Okay seriously though, this might be the most eccentric and most cult managersduo that has ever graced the beautiful game*

Football is life, yes it is. Okay, a lot of people are about the game. But lads and lassies, talking about football and football culture. Desire. Passion. Commitment. Faith. Battle. Belief. Gives me the fucking chills. I love it. So here are a few quotes that brilliantly portray my sentiment and give you an insight in the crazy football mind that is Marc.

"Some people believe football is a matter of life and death. I'm very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that." - Bill Shankly

"I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business... But I was in the top one" - Brian Clough

"Mind you, I have been here during the bad times too. One year we came second." Bob Paisley

"It's getting tickly now - squeaky-bum time, I call it." - Alex Ferguson

"If I wanted you to understand, I would have explained it better" - Johan Cruijff

"It's not about the name on the back of the jersey, it's about the badge on the front"

"You can change your wife, your politics, your religion, but never, never can you change your        favourite football team" - Eric Cantona

"Doping in English football is restricted to lager and baked beans with sausages. After which the players take to the field, belching and farting. English football culture is one of pure, intense competition, and that's why I have always preferred it to Italy" - Paolo di Canio

"There are scientists who will tell you that spirit, because it can't be measured, doesn't exist. Bollocks. It does exist." - Sam Allardyce

"Game after game after game, I realise now what's most important in my life: Football. Show me something more thrilling than a perfect volley; tell me you've never dreamed of the immaculate strike and that passionate moment when an entire nation holds it breath. Tell me that football is not our one common language when the world stops for ninety minutes to be witness to that one special moment.

You could tell me I'm wrong; some may say it's just a game, but this is about heroes and tribes, loyalties and devotion; it's our battle and our belief, our commitment and our passion; this is our faith. Now, feel the fever of the crowd, hear the roar of the faithful." - FIFA 2006 intro
