Ronald Frederick "Ron" Atkinson, commonly known as Big Ron, is an English former football player and manager. In the 1990s and early 2000s, he was one of Britain's best-known football pundits...
He sliced the ball when he had it on a plate.
I think that was a moment of cool panic there.
I've had this sneaking feeling throughout the game that it's there to be won.
I'm afraid they've left their legs at home.
Well, either side could win it, or it could be a draw.
Why not master? upon letting off wind whilst commentating live
I'm very keen to try my hand at international football.
His white boots were on fire against Arsenal, and he'll be looking for them to reproduce tonight.
His head just disappeared into his shoulders.
They've certainly grown, the Japanese. I mean grown in stature, playing-wise.
He'll take some pleasure from that, Brian Carey. He and Steve Bull have been having it off all afternoon.
He had acres of time there.
This is the best Man United have played in Europe this season and, conversely, the opposition has been excellent.
The ball goes down the keeper's throat where it hits him on the knees to say the least.
How are they defensively, attacking-wise?
Lee Dixon will be up against two South American left-handers tonight.
Yordi circumnavigated Ledley King there.
Their forward got a lucky squeeze from the defender.
At international level, giving the ball away doesn't work too often.
He's the equivalent of the Spanish David Beckham.
That was Pele's strength - holding people off with his arm.
There's a snap about Liverpool that just isn't there.
If you score against the Italians you deserve a goal.
Their strength is their strength.
He's not only a good player, but he's spiteful in the nicest sense of the word.
...was treading on dangerous water there...
(on Phil Neville)
I'm sure Bobby won't want them to be losing the match before winning it.
Women should be in the kitchen, the discotheque and the boutique, but not in football.
There's nobody fitter at his age, except maybe Raquel Welch.
Our fans have been branded with the same brush
The Spaniards have been reduced to aiming aimless balls into the box.
I know where he should have put his flag up, and he'd have got plenty of help.
(said at Stamford Bridge)
Moreano thought that the full back was gonna come up behind and give him one really hard.
You don't want to be giving away free-kicks in the penalty area...
You half fancied that to go in as it was rising and dipping at the same time.
Well, Clive, it's all about the two Ms - movement and positioning.
He must be lightning slow.
Woodcock would have scored but his shot was too perfect.
I would not say he (David Ginola) is the best left-winger in the Premiership, but there are none better.
Beckenbauer has really gambled all his eggs.
Someone in the England team will have to grab the ball by the horns.
Liverpool will think 'we could have won this 2-2'
That's not the type of header you want to see your defender make, with his hand.
On another night, they'd have won 2-2.
The keeper was unsighted - he still didn't see it.
...and he extends and grows even bigger than he is.
(on Peter Schmeichel)
They are playing above the ground.
Scholes and Van Nistelrooy drugged the last two defenders.
Chelsea look like they've got a couple more gears left in the locker.
There's a little triangle - five left-footed players.
A ten-foot keeper really should have stopped that.
They've done the old-fashioned things well; they've kicked the ball, they've headed it...
They must go for it now as they have nothing to lose but the match.
I would also think that the replay showed it to be worse than it actually was.
They've come out at half time and gone bang.
Chelsea are the team who can break the Arsenal and Manchester United monopoly.
You know when I say that things happen in matches? Well, it just happened there.
Heskey needs to punch his own weight.
All I do know is that I'll never be able to achieve what Tommy Docherty did, and that is take Aston Villa into the third division and Manchester United into the second division
Jari Litmanen should be made compulsory.
Apart from picking the ball out of the net, he hasn't had to make a save.
Scholes is very influential for England at international level.
Huddersfield will want to win this one.
There's a few tired limbs in the blue legs.
They scored too early.
We haven't had a strategic free kick all night. No one's knocked over attackers ad-lib.
I just wanted to give my players some technical advice. I told them the game had started.
He dribbles a lot and the opposition don't like it - you can see it all over their faces
Now Manchester United are 2-1 down on aggregate, they are in a better position than when they started the game at 1-1.
Carlton Palmer can trap the ball further than I can kick it
Stoichkov's playing on the wing, in this situation he likes to come in and scalp the centre-half.
I never comment on referees and I'm not going to break the habit of a lifetime for that prat.
You can see the ball go past them, or the man, but you'll never see both man and ball go past at the same time. So if the ball goes past, the man won't, or if the man goes past, they'll take the ball.
I tell you what, if the Cameroons get a goal back here they're literally gonna catch on fire.
One of the reserves came up to me and said 'I'm finding it a bit hard, it's the first time I've ever been dropped'. So I told him to do what Nick Faldo does and work at his game. Next thing I know he's doing exactly what Faldo does, he's taken up golf.
They've picked their heads up off the ground, and they now have a lot to carry on their shoulders.
For me their biggest threat is when they get into the attacking part of the field.
I'm going to make a prediction - it could go either way.
Zero-zero is a big score.
