"The sky is touched with tears but we can live with that because football also has to live in all weather conditions and rain is a gift from heaven."
"When the music stops, things will be complicated. But as long as the music is playing, you've got to get up and dance. We're still dancing."
"We are all at a wonderful ball where the champagne sparkles in every glass and soft laughter falls upon the summer air. We know, by the rules, that at some moment the Black Horsemen will come shattering through the great terrace doors, wreaking vengeance and scattering the survivors. Those who leave early are saved, but the ball is so splendid no-one wants to leave while there is still time, so that everyone keeps asking, 'What time is it? What time is it?' But none of the clocks have any hands."
