Famous Quotes

Apparently it is 25 years ago today that Barry Davies exclaimed when GB's hockey team scored against the Germans "Where were the Germans but frankly who cares!" , of course there is the iconic "They think its all over ... it is now!"

My favourite is when Germany equalised in Euro 96 semis and Barry Davies (I think) just screamed "Kuntz!" ... not sure he meant the players name!!!

    Remember watching that hockey match (think it was also the one where the miniature of sport ran on the pitch) then setting off to Norwich (we won 3-1).
