Looking at I LOVE CRICKET: THE CHINATOWN OF ILX and there is no discussion of that stupid KP biog. Maybe its for the best.

he is such an imbecile and a paranoid wreck

all of these grudges and vendettas derive from a fundamental lack of insight into anything

ferguson is surely having sleeping nights wondering when, if ever, he will find it in his heart to forgive him

Will you ever forgive Ferguson?

'[Pause]. Good question. I'm not sure, I'm not sure football is a small world and eventually, you will cross paths with people again.

'Whether I would ever bump into him or not, whether it be at a game or sometimes there are conferences going on...

'The problem, I suppose, I had and one of the reasons when you are writing stuff and you are reflecting on it, is that when you have worked with somebody for such a long time – and obviously we had our disagreements and I departed, and I have no problems with that, it's fine.

'It's afterwards when people start coming out with all sorts of nonsense. For Alex Ferguson, not just to criticise myself, but other players who were part of a team that brought some good days to lots of supporters, for him to criticise that when you think of what he made out of it – he made millions of pounds out of it...

'He got his statues, he's got his stand named after him – to come back and criticise...

'I said at the time, I wasn't too bothered about myself, but to criticise people who brought him success was just ridiculous.

'Will I ever forgive him? I don't know. Listen, I don't know. We'll see if we ever cross paths again. I'm sure we will - cross paths, I mean.'

Keane on Ferguson is the gift that keeps on giving or what.

Keane explained why he had refused to attend the unveiling of Ferguson’s statue at Old Trafford. “I think I did [get an invitation], yeah. But I don’t think he invited me. It was probably his committee or his son or whatever, but why would I go to that? That was all power and control to him. So he comes in and we’re all standing there [gesturing sycophantic applause] and he’s: ‘I’ve got you where I want you.’”

Finally Roy, if Dancing Queen by Abba is the wrong song for the dressing room, what’s the right song?

Strangely enough, the music didn’t bother me in terms of getting motivated. So I don’t think I have a song that I could throw at you that would get me going. But I don’t think it would be Abba.

Hang about, your first single was Karma Chameleon?

[Pointing angrily] I was 12!

“I thought I knew what the group might need, that we didn’t need a big team talk. It was Tottenham Hotspur at home. I thought please don’t go on about Tottenham, we all know what Tottenham is about, they are nice and tidy but we’ll fucking do them. He came in and said: ‘Lads, it’s Tottenham’, and that was it. Brilliant.”
