The Star Of Berlin 1936 ..
The 1936 Olympic Village, on the western edge of Berlin, lies forlorn and forgotten.
Around 4,000 athletes – including Great Britain’s 208-strong squad – took part in the Games in the summer of 1936.
Adolf Hitler looked on with delight as his German ‘supermen’ lived up to his dreams of glory, winning the Games with a medal count of nearly 90.
Great Britain came tenth with just 14.
The only real slap in the face for the Fuhrer was the success of America’s black track-and-field athlete Jesse Owens.
He won four gold medals and was the star of the Games in the world’s eyes – even if Hitler regarded him as inferior because of his colour.
Ironically, Owens’s tiny room – No. 5, in block 39 – is the only athlete’s room that has been renovated.
It’s a simple space that reflects the modesty of the humble man who stayed there – a man who, paradoxically, enjoyed more freedom in Nazi Germany at that time than he did in his segregated US homeland.

The ball is like a woman, she loves to be caressed.
( Eric Cantona )
I know that some people have sought to perpetrate a myth that I am a naturally defensively-minded manager.
However, this is a case of certain people not letting the facts get in the way of a good story.
Having played in an Aberdeen team that got used to winning trophies regularly – including the European Cup Winners Cup – and having steered Rangers to seven trophies in three seasons, I can assure you that my appetite for attacking, winning football is second to none.
We all know that football is an unpredictable business but I would like to think that my time here as manager will be a long and rewarding one.

When you’re comfortable, and you think you’re comfortable, it’s uncomfortable.
( Roy Keane )
There were two quick goals.
Bang, Bang, Bang.
( Alvin Martin )
We want to win the match in 90 minutes, even if we have to go to extra time to do it.
( Alex McLeish )
Everyone is sitting on the fence on the edge of their seats.
( Alan Smith )
We have to reduce our expectations of England and we have the players to do it.

( Mark Viduka )
