After a potentially damaging defeat, and the realisation that I have another long day of work ahead of me, I have resorted to using Derby's plight as a means of cheering me up:
"I don't like losing. If you ask anyone who has been around me, I am probably one of the biggest losers."
"For those standing up there will be free seats in a minute as many people will be leaving for Pride Park. For those of you going to Pride Park I want you to remember the following - it is not the winning that matters, it is the taking part that counts."
Train manager on the 13.23 train to Derby for the game against Sunderland.
Both of these have been shamelessly lifted (as ever) from the BBC's Quotes of the Week page.
