MATCH QUOTES

โ€œ[Paul McGrath was] a Colossus." Ron Atkinson. โ€œI really wanted this chance. โ€œThe confidence has always been there in my ability and I just had to persuade someone to take me up on it. "I'm well aware that it could have all blown up my face, that's why I'm so pleased with the way it's started." Guy Whittingham on moving from life as a squaddie to becoming a professional footballer.
