Goals on Sunday was full of more Mumbai-jumbo from Chris Kamara:

“Is it still Calcutta? I thought it was Bombay these days.”

“As long as you hit the target they go in, if the keeper don’t make a save.”

 

TRUE AND FALSE

Kenny Cunningham is gradually getting to grips with the new lingo of football:

“Like Messi, he plays in that fake nine position.”

 

WHO ARE YA?

“He’ll never be the player that he is.”

 

OH WHAT A FELINE

Just a whiskers onside, insists Stan Collymore:

“The Bolton back four all put their hands up, but not a cat on earth’s chance.”

 

BRIGHT SPARK

A stopped clock is right twice a day, but not Mark Bright:

“There was nothing wrong with his timing; he was just a bit late.”

 

MOVING TARGET

When he’s on the warpath, Peter Collins packs some complicated motorised weaponry:

SWEET TRUTH

Simeon Jackson

Simeon Jackson

MONKEY BUSINESS

Jonathan Pearce gets a little personal with Martin Keown:

“Where do you sit on young players, Martin?”

 

COLD COMFORT

George Hamilton once confirmed that “the eiderdown of 2-0 was a lot more comfortable than the blanket of 1-0″. At snowy Hillsborough, Alan Biggs went one better:

“Yeovil’s electric blanket is the cushion of Jonathan Obika’s goal.”

 

STATTO

Alan Brazil fluffs his audition for Opta:

“Paul Scholes made 75 passes in the first half, completing 93 of them, which is 97%.”

“It’s like that old phrase; if you’re high maintenance, you better be good.”

 

 

GUFF STREAM

“One-nil. No less than they deserve, Jeff.”

Harry Redknapp on faithful Rosie:

“I don’t even like calling her a dog, she was better than that.”

David Wheater boasts about keeping van Persie quiet;

“That was one of the one chances that he had.”

Merse tackles Aquilani with an old favourite:

“He ran the show in Rome, but came over to Liverpool and was like a fish up a tree.”

Phil Thompson on Norwich:

“They were very, very less than average.”

Stewart Robson’s unique double-locking system:

“He’s the player who can unlock the key.”

Phil Neal is just glad to be alive:

“Whoever you support, you’ve got that blood in your veins.”

Greg Rusedski holds court:

“What other sport do you play six hours of tennis for?”
