This is the real thing, this is no show pony.
Though England would have to avoid playing between February and May, clearly. Only joking. I mean, it's not going to be him, though, is it? Are we live? Oh crap.
I've had a good crack but if I don't win another two or more before I retire I would still feel I had underachieved. What motivates me is to keep winning. To be part of teams that win things, the hour after the game, the night of celebration - it is the most incredible feeling you are ever going to get in your life. I have had it quite a few times but you never get enough of it.
We're not dead yet.
He won't give me one single second's rest for 90 minutes.
I think he's a special talent. I thought there were glimpses of brilliance before Christmas but after that he has shown everyone at United that he's going to be a world-class player.
We know over the next few days people will criticize us and rightly so because our performances haven't been up to our standards. There will be a lot of disappointment for the next few days but we are training on Friday and Saturday mornings and Sunday's game is a great chance to put it right because the fans will want us to put a show on for them.
Sir Alex Ferguson is the most successful manager Manchester United have ever had. It is ridiculous for people to suggest he leaves. Who do they want to replace him? Ron Atkinson, Tommy Docherty?
We get too carried away by shouts from the crowd. What do you expect?
All our thoughts are with Alan and it has been a very bad day all round. The reaction of the crowd is part of football, you just have to accept it.
There are only four trophies available to win at the start of every season and there will be some big teams this year who won't win one at all.
We've taken a lot of criticism recently, and rightly so - - there are a lot of expectations at this club. Hopefully this is the start of something special for us.
One of the things this manager has brought is a consistency to the squad right the way through. There has been no shocks going into tournaments, there have been no panic moves in terms of who is going to be there, who is not going to be there.
We had to guard against complacency and try to take the chances we created, but in the second half they played better.
I just hope my brother can score a 40-yard screamer.
He's courageous, he's a player who never stops running with a football. If he gets tackled nine times on the bounce, he'll still want the ball the 10th time and believe he can go past you.
The players do not have to lift themselves, they know their responsibilities. I am sure we will hear a lot over the next few days about how we are not going to be playing European football after Christmas. There will be a circus but we have to remove ourselves from that.
We don't give in and we don't stop. We are relentless and in the end we usually get to where we want to be.
The last two years have proved what can happen with good coaching, a bit of luck and the correct performances on the right night.
