Danny Meehan quotes

[When asked to be breathalised by the cops] No need, officer. I'm absolutely drunk.

I'm in here for drunken assault.

I just wanna keep my head down, do my twelve months and I'm going home.

What goes on the pitch, stays on the pitch.

You're becoming a sentimental old fart.

It's funny, but when you're in that football world, you just don't realise what it means to people. You only find out how disappointed they are, when you let them down. I was 16 when I signed pro forms. Thought I was the business. Didn't take long for standards to start slipping. Cars, booze, bad tips for slow horses... You think you can handle it, then bang, very soon it's handling you. Before I was picking up trophies, I was 425 grand down to men nasty enough... well, even they would have put the wind up Mr Sykes. But they did give me two choices - a wheelchair for life, or a deliberate penalty against the Germans. It's not as if I've prospered. Look where I've ended up.

Stick that in your trophy cabinet.
