What Terry Venables said about ...
- (-)

"If history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same thing again."

... taking over at Leeds United (The Times)  2002

"For the first time I'm at a club where I believe I've got a chance I can win it (the Premier League)."

... Danny Blanchflower ...  July 1963 (Charles Buchan's Football Monthly)

"There was one player in particular who captivated me; entertainment value apart, it was a sheer education to watch him perform.  He was Danny Blanchflower.  What a model for any budding young wing half ?  In watching Danny, I realised that soccer is an art.  His cultured play and powerful influence on the rest of the Spurs team were an inspiration to me."

... supporting Spurs... July 1963 (Charles Buchan's Football Monthly)

"It was a fair journey from Dagenham to Tottenham when you are a schoolboy.  But I made the trip regularly by train.  For I was a Spurs supporter and for two seasons I hardly missed one first team match at White Hart Lane. 
I was really 'sent' by Spurs in those days.  Yet when the time came for me to join a big club, I chose Chelsea.  Spurs were interested, but I was looking ahead.  Because Spurs' glittering array of talent I felt opportunity might be limited for me at White Hart Lane."

... Terry Fenwick's second drink-driving charge ... ...  ()

"The spirit he has shown has been second to none."

... his own ability when at Barcelona ... ...  ()

"A lot of people seem to think I'm a slippery Cockney boy with a few jokes.  It has taken one of the biggest clubs in the world to acknowledge what I can really do - coach."

... who is one his side ... ...  ()

"Certain people are for me, certain people are pro me."

... on joining QPR ... ...1969  (Goal magazine)
