STICKS AND STONES
Niall Quinn’s bad medicine:
“That’s rubbing insult into the wound.”

GREAT LENGTHS
Neil Lennon distances himself from accuracy:
“The referee said he was 15 metres away. That’s what, 30 or 40 yards?”

HEAT IS ON
Chris Sutton’s experiments have found 100°C to be the maximum temperature:
“Boiling point is boiling point. You don’t get higher than that.”

NUMBERS GAMES
Not everything added up at Wembley for BT Sport’s Darren Fletcher:
“The last 11 meetings have produced three wins for Arsenal, three for City and six draws.”

You can’t count on Sam Matterface either:
“Everything’s been played at about 70% in the game at the moment. Everyone’s about a six out of 10.”

SOFT FEET
Jamie Redknapp is gentle with the Spurs midfielder:
“Wanyama is playing on tenderhooks after getting a booking.”

SQUARE ONE
Mark Schwarzer found himself back where he started:
“He’s done a 360 degree u-turn.”

BACK TO BASICS
A little late in the day, but Moyesy has finally cracked it:
“We need to stop conceding and score more.”

FACING THE MUSIC
Paul Jiggins appreciates Zlatan’s fine musical ear:
“I loved his quote saying he felt like Benjamin Britten.”

INSIGHT DEPARTMENT
When the score 5-2 on aggregate, Glenn Hoddle had a theory:
“Monaco have Dortmund exactly where they want them.”  

MAKING A FILM OF IT
A moment of honesty from Tim Sherwood:
“If I was director of a movie and someone give me the actors, I couldn’t promise it’d be good viewing.”

MOUTHWATERING ACTION
Bobby Gould went dental:
“If it stays like this, we’re sitting on the edge of our teeth.”

THE DARK SIDE
Mike Parry: “Two evils doesn’t make a good.”

DIFFERENT BALL GAMES
Sky Formula 1 pundit Paul Di Resta empathises with the governing body:
“You need to put your hands into the FIA’s shoes.”
