Default Keegan: Quitter

So is this official now? Clearly the man is a full-blown quitter. I would feel sorry for him but he's bought some real crap for Man City. I mean come on - steve Mcmanaman - that's just asking for trouble. But hey, just like at Newcastle he made sure the clubs best striker got sold off before he jumped ship.

I did not rate him that highly as a player. I thought the media built him up. I am sure I read a headline in one of last Sundays tabloids that Gordon Strachan was being approached for the City job.So was he pushed or did he just chuck it in?

As much as I love the little ginger pixie I'd much prefer Stuart Pearce to get it. He would solve City's biggest problem - pri madonna behavior - in about half an hour. Any player who has to be warned off a pitch with a broken leg like Pearce was wouldn't stand for any nonsense.

Keegan the Quitter eh? I think he knows his limitations and has taken Man City as far as he can as a manager, and both he and the club with their resources know this....It was the same when England got dumped on by the jerries...He could only take that team so far and couldn't progress so being the man he is left and let someone else do the job.

So to say he is an out and out Quitter is totally unjust.......The man can't face being a loser that's all.

My own opinion is thaty he was pushed and he is probably not going to make a song and dance about it. I think we would all agree that being a Manager of a football club is not an easy task.
Stuart Pearce was what I call a hard player like Hughes was. They took it but could dish it out if necessary and I do not think either player demonstrated with the refs decision. My type of footballer which a lot of other professionals could take a leaf from their book.

He obviously didn't "lov it lov it lov it"!!

As for Stuart Pearce, he should have been in the England set-up somewhere when he quit playing. They need someone like him in a role such as shouting at the overpaid bunch of ponces in the dressing room at half time, you knew whenever Pearce was in an england shirt he would give 100% for team and country. One of the last players to do so IMHO.

I'm a huge fan of Stuart Pearce and I think he could become a great manager too, given the right start.

I almost cried after he scored that pen against Spain in Euro 96 and then screamed at the crowd, arms aloft.

A few Keegan classics:

"You get bunches of players like you do bananas...though that is a bad comparison."

"Argentina won't be at Euro 2000 because they're from South America."

"People will say that was typical City, which really annoys me. But that's typical City, I suppose..."

"By the end he [Asprilla] was knackered-o. I think that's the Spanish for it."

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

"One of his strengths is not heading."

"He's using his strength and that is his strength, his strength."

"My father was a miner and he worked down a mine."

"If I had a blank piece of paper there'd be five names on it."

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

"I didn't see a lot. When Benitez learns a bit more English someone have to tell him to sit down."

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

"Against France we'll have to be at our best both technically,tactically and spirit-wise."

"You can't do better than go away from home and get a draw."

"We deserved to win this game after hammering them 0-0 in the first half."

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

"He [SWP] is now getting paid what he deserves to be paid. I don't approve of using kids as cheap labour."

"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."

"Maine Road was a great football stadium but as time moved on it stayed where it is..."

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

"Gary always weighed up his options, especially when he had no choice."

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

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

"You don't get two chances at this level, or at any other level for that matter."

"He can't speak Turkey, but you can tell he's delighted."

"Batistuta is very good at pulling off defenders."

"There'll be no siestas in Madrid tonight."

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

"England can end the millennium as it started - as the greatest football nation in the world."

"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."

"They compare Steve McManaman to Steve Heighway and he's nothing
like him, but I can see why - it's because he's a bit different..."

"In some ways, cramp is worse than having a broken leg."

"Should Al-Fayed get a British passport? 1000 per cent yes."

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

"Despite his white boots, he has real pace..."

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

"Goalkeepers aren't born today until they're in their late 2Os or 3Os."

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

"The ref was vertically 15 yards away."

"Sir John Hall was a multi-millionaire when I came back to Newcastle. With all the players I've bought, I'm trying to make him just an ordinary millionaire."

"Football's always easier when you've got the ball."

"People still have the concept of one big bath, but the way forward hygeine-wise is single baths."

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

"I'd love to be a mole on the wall in the Liverpool dressing room at half-time." (My favourite! )

"I'm not trying to make excuses for David Seaman, but I think the lights may have been a problem..."

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

"I'm not disappointed - just disappointed."

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

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

"We managed to wrong a few rights."

"It's my job not to get beheaded."

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

"Sometimes there are too many generals and not enough people waving to the generals as they walk past."

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

"That decision, for me, was almost certainly definitely wrong."

"Danny Tiatto is not going to make a mistake on purpose."

"He'll also be very dangerous from set-pieces. That means he'll be a threat from free-kicks and corners in the final third of the field."

"He's [Shaun Wright-Phillips] got a heart as big as his size, which isn't big, but his heart's bigger than that."

"The problem in our country is that we use hindsight as our judge. When she [Margaret Thatcher] was in power, there were a lot of good things done, but people will always pick out bad things. She was a good lady."
