I used to dream about taking the ball ’round the keeper, stopping it on the line, and then getting on my hands and knees and heading it into the net. When I scored against Benfica in the 1968 European Cup final, I nearly did it. I left the keeper for dead, but then I chickened out.

David de Gea
It’s not the mistake that’s important; it’s how you recover from it. If you recover instantly, in that second, it’s gone from your mind. You play on and don’t make the next mistake, and that’s the sign of a top keeper. Joe Hart certainly is one of those guys.

B. B. King
I prefer playing up front, really, because I feel like if I make the right run, or if I get the ball at the right time, I can just be one-on-one with the defender, and then if I manage to get past the centre-back, it’s one-on-one with the ‘keeper.

I had my whole life to write a bunch of crappy songs and then play them in front of people and think, ‘All right, that one out of these seven is really good; it’s a keeper.’ But on this second album, to be honest, I probably wrote about 50 songs where I was just trying to write a hit.
