Today, ... the manager made my career.
When I spoke to David Moyes it didn't matter what the manager was offering me, I was ready to jump at the chance to come back.
You appreciate that as a player, because you know the manager is standing up for you. He only does that when he feels strongly about something. He doesn't do it just for the sake of doing it. As a player, you feed off that and respond to it.
The manager must not think I am ready for it. Perhaps with everything that has gone on he thought it might not be a good idea.
The manager has questioned my commitment and credibility in public and I feel I have no choice but to defend myself and tell the truth.
The manager held court with the media and gave one side of this unfortunate affair, which is why I'm now giving my side.
You don't have to get hits to impress the manager.
I was working in the local tourist office and I said to the manager, 'We should do something to make Montreux known in America. Let's do a jazz festival!
The nice thing is, as the manager, we can see where every cart is on the course.
Damien is the manager and he will pick the side but during the game myself and Phil Harrington will be making the decisions.
I did pull out of one Republic squad with an injury and I do not think the manager was too happy with that.
I was seen as the scapegoat and the manager even told me I'd not done a lot wrong. He just changed it and that was very hard to take. I sulked for two or three weeks but that's normal and now I just have to get my head down and work hard and hope for my chance to get back into the first team.
He thinks he's the manager of the toy department.
As a player, especially me, I feel like I failed the manager, ... Unfortunately, he has to be the fall guy. If we were 91-71, he'd be voted Manager of the Year.
He has a presence. You knew, right from the get-go, he was the manager, and what he says goes.
The manager could have made a large sector bet that flopped; he may have made a large commitment to the fund's top 10 holdings, which then underperformed; or the fund may simply have an unskilled manager, someone who can't pick well.
We ring the cash register when (the manager) goes out and brings in somebody from the bullpen.
My best friend became the manager and maitre d', and he and I-with 33 people-opened this white tablecloth restaurant in the Warehouse District in 1990. By the end of '90, it blew the charts: we were getting every award, we got the highest review ever done.
Have the manager of your bank call your creditors and their bankers to find out what's going on.
[Then Reds owner] Marge Schott , who was cheap, didn't like the players or the manager calling long distance from the clubhouse.
Without shouting and screaming, the manager reorganized the team, went for three at the back, much more attacking, ... He just said we weren't playing as well as we can and we weren't winning tackles. He let us know that and we went out and put that all right.
Well let me tell you that no individual, be it the chairman, the manager or a player is bigger than Newcastle United even if that player is a multi-millionaire.
They found the manager of that building right underneath that blanket. His name was Carlos Garcia. He died when he went to a back apartment to save another man. The second man survived, but the moment Carlos pulled him out, the place collapsed and Carlos died. He was a wonderful man, Carlos... a brave man.
If the manager sees value in including me, then that's great and I'd be delighted to go.
There will be no undue delay, but we have to take the necessary time to find the manager that makes this club the top club in Scotland.
