"Pathetic.

"We played badly, let's be frank about it - surely we can't play so poorly again?

โ€œBut I suppose If you play that badly and win, you can't complain.

Mick Wright.


"I was glad to get that over with [Scoring his first goal in his seventeenth game].

"I was so anxious. The ball hung so long in the air I thought it would never drop Into the net.โ€
