There are probably a few things that Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers wishes he hadn’t said this year, though this perhaps tops the pile. In a press conference live from the Reds’ Melwood training ground in November, he eluded to Tottenham’s spending from the summer before.
Everyone admires confidence, though Newcastle caretaker manager John Carver was recorded here, maybe taking it a stretch too far, in this firm declaration.
It wouldn’t be a season in the Premier League without a gem from Chelsea’s outspoken boss Jose Mourinho, whose side are 13/8 with Coral to retain the title next term. In response to Arsene Wenger’s quip about his side playing boring football, the ‘Special One’ had this to say:
Tim Sherwood demonstrated he is a man of many talents, after correcting one reporter on a fashion issue during one interview, see below for details!

The one you’ve all been waiting for. There isn’t even any need to drop any hints, but just to say, enjoy this once again from Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson.

“I think you must have had your head in the clouds, away or on holiday or reporting on a different team because if you don’t know the answer to that question, then I think your question is absolutely unbelievable.
“The fact that you don’t understand where I’m coming from. If you don’t understand that question then I think you are an ostrich – your head must be in the sand. Is your head in the sand?
“Are you flexible enough to get your head in the sand? My suspicion would be no.
“I can. You can’t.
“You’ve been here often enough. To ask that question you’re being very, very silly or you’re being absolutely stupid. One of the two. For you to ask that question, I’m sorry son, but you are daft.
“You’re wrong. You’ve been in here. I know you have, so don’t give that **** with me. Please, don’t give that **** with me.
“I’ll smile at you because I can afford to smile at you.
“Now, do you want to ask a different question or do you want to ask it differently? Go on, ask it. Or are you not capable?”
