I don't know what to say really.Three minutesto the biggest battle of our professional livesall comes down to today.Eitherwe healas a teamor we are going to crumble.Inch by inchplay by playtill we're finished.We are in hell right now, gentlemenbelieve meandwe can stay hereand get the daylights kicked out of usorwe can fight our wayback into the light.We can climb out of hell.One inch, at a time.Now I can't do it for you.I'm too old.I look around and I see these young facesand I thinkI meanI made every wrong choice a middle age man could make.I uh....I threw away all my moneybelieve it or not.I chased offanyone who has ever loved me.And lately,I can't even stand the face I see in the mirror.You know when you get old in lifethings get taken from you.That's, that's part of life.But,you only learn that when you start losing stuff.You find out that life is just a game of inches.So is football.Because in either gamelife or footballthe margin for error is so small.I meanone half step too late or to earlyyou don't quite make it.One half second too slow or too fastand you don't quite catch it.The inches we need are everywhere around us.They are in ever break of the gameevery minute, every second.On this team, we fight for that inchOn this team, we tear ourselves, and everyone around usto pieces for that inch.We CLAW with our finger nails for that inch.Cause we knowwhen we add up all those inchesthat's going to make the differencebetween WINNING and LOSINGbetween LIVING and DYING.I'll tell you thisin any fightit is the guy who is willing to diewho is going to win that inch.And I knowif I am going to have any life anymoreit is because, I am still willing to fight, and die for that inchbecause that is what LIVING is.The six inches in front of your face.Now I can't make you do it.You gotta look at the guy next to you.Look into his eyes.Now I think you are going to see a guy who will go that inch with you.You are going to see a guywho will sacrifice himself for this teambecause he knows when it comes down to it,you are gonna do the same thing for him.That's a team, gentlemenand either we heal now, as a team,or we will die as individuals.That's football guys.That's all it is.Now, whattaya gonna do?Better if you can get pacino into to it for youhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WO4tIrjBDkk

First is First, Second is Nowhere!The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible.A wise man will make more opportunities than he finds.Goals are the fuel in the furnace of achievement

"The darkest moments of our lives are not to be buried and forgotten,rather the are a memory to be called upon to remind us of the unrelentinghuman spirit and our capacity to overcome the intolerable.""I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is the moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious""The real glory is being knocked to your knees and then coming back. That's real glory. That's the essence of it.""Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence." The legendary Vince Lombardi.

"Take your points and the goals will come" - said a thousand times."go in there a poach a few goals get us back into it" said to me at the second half of an intervarsities hurling match where we were losing by at least 18 pts and I had no intention of going near the ball. In the managers defence, he said it tongue in cheek !
