David Moyes quotes

I don't know what you mean by 'decision'. I've got a four-year contract so I don't know what you're talking about 'a decision.feedback

Whether we were in the Premier League or the Championship, there were always going to be players leaving due to loans or whatever their contractual situation may be. I'm going to sit down with Ellis and Martin and have a talk with them over the coming days and weeks. We now know we have to put a plan in place, and I have to look and see there's a plan to get us bouncing back up.feedback

When you come in, you use the word 'rebuilding', and I don't think anybody should really be changing that word. But what happens is that time doesn't always give you an opportunity to rebuild because you are judged on results automatically. I think most people are aware that there is more to do from top to bottom.feedback

It's not nice and I feel worse because I've let people down, that's the disappointment. But a lot of good managers have been relegated. I'll use it as something to motivate myself with.feedback

To think about it and talk about it now is just too quick. They're questions for a week or two down the line - I'm not sure it's for now. I'd like to make sure we get Sunderland back in the Premier League. I'm really disappointed. This is my worst day in football. I feel for the supporters. They put their heart and cash into the team and my thoughts are mainly with them. I know what a Premier League team looks like, a Premier League squad looks like, and we have looked short of that bit of quality.feedback

I'll sit down with Ellis and Martin in the next week or so and speak about it but I'm more concerned about the people who follow the club. My emotions are with the people in this area, they're the ones I feel for.feedback

I would say that I would make that decision at the end of the season because, at this moment in time, it would be the wrong time to say that. That's not a seismic change in position, I just have a situation where we need to see how things are at the end of the season. It's me saying I will assess the situation at the end of the season.feedback

It was getting a wee bit naughty at the end there so just watch yourself. You still might get a slap, even though you're a woman. Careful the next time you come in. I deeply regret the comments I made. It's certainly not the person I am and I accept it was a mistake. I've spoken to the BBC reporter who accepted my apology and hopefully we can now move on.feedback

There's nothing we can do about what they do. We can only make sure we try to remain a Premier League team.feedback

It's not nice when you're not winning. You come into football to win, but at the moment we're not winning most weeks. That's hard to take.feedback

As a manager you look at yourself before anyone else. I will always question myself to see if I could have done better but I've had a lot of really good times in football and I'm 100% the same manager I was when I was winning at Everton.feedback

There's still a chance and while there's a chance, we're going to try to take it. We're not stupid, we're near desperation but we're in there fighting and we still think we've got a good chance. I would actually say I'm better now because of the experiences I had with Manchester United and in Spain. Losing does affect you but I know we will turn things round and the wins will come. It will definitely get better. I believe it will change this season.feedback

You have to win trophies at Manchester United and Jose has a trophy under his belt quickly. I lost to Sunderland on penalty kicks in the semi-final. It's small margins at times which can change things. That's what I'm talking about now – if we can get a small margin to go our way, it could alter things. But I think winning is a big thing at a club like Manchester United and you quickly learn that.feedback

I don't think you ever get offered the Manchester United job if you're a bad manager. You only get that position if you've had something to show previously.feedback

You have to win. They will be up there competing every year. Every manager needs a bit of time and whoever is at Manchester United needs a bit of time to understand the club, the size and how it works.feedback

The hardest thing as a manager is losing and we're losing a lot. The players care and want to do well and we're not doing as well as we should be.feedback

I don't want to blame referees for my position and us losing. The result was helped by the referee. Manchester United were playing well but it was a decision that went against us. We were hanging in the game and staying in the game and trying to do our best. We gave away a poor goal and I thought we needed to get a lot closer. When we went down to 10 men it made it a lot harder. We do some good things but just lack a bit of quality but it's not for the want of trying. The boys are doing everything they can.feedback

We keep going. We have another home game next Saturday and we have to try and win it.feedback

It will be very tight for them this season but I think United have to be in the Champions League. You have to win trophies there and Jose has a [League Cup] trophy under his belt quickly.feedback

We keep fighting, we keep going. We need to give the supporters and everybody else here that little bit of hope. Scoring goals is a problem but no, I don't think the players have accepted relegation. We'll keep going until it's mathematically impossible to stay up.feedback

But we will only accept relegation when it becomes mathematically impossible for us to stay up. We're not there yet and we fight on.feedback

We were in the game and it was key that we remained in the game. I think it changed that. I don't want in any way to blame referees because our position is where we are, we're bottom of the league, I want to make that clear. It's nothing to do with referees, but I didn't think it was a good decision.feedback

I've been surprised in many ways, but I've done my job with the players, got them prepared, organised them, got the best team out we possibly can. I think it was great that you get that support from the club, and I expected it.feedback

I don't see it as being something which is in my character. It is something which is out of character. As I said, I've apologised to the girl… I've done what I needed to do. It's the sort of thing you expect down the local pub, not the kind of thing you get from a professional football manager.feedback

It was dreadful, absolutely appalling. This is a woman, in a very small minority of sports journalists, trying to go about her job and being threatened.feedback

I profoundly regret what I said. I have spoken to the girl, who I apologised to, and she accepted it. I rang her on the Monday morning, she was fine and accepted it.feedback

It was getting a wee bit naughty at the end there so just watch yourself. There will be anger about this and I deeply regret what I've done. It was the heat of the moment. The business we're in, sometimes you only have seconds to think and answer. So, you know, it was the wrong thing to do. I spoke to [chief executive] Martin [Bain] immediately after it happened. I spoke to Ellis about it on the Monday morning as well. They were aware of it two weeks ago, but for some reason it has come out now.feedback

He's a top young goalkeeper and now beginning to look like a top senior goalkeeper. If he keeps up his form there'll be few keepers who can produce what he can.feedback

I always felt I had that [security] from the day I came in. It was always said that there is a bigger job to be done and that it might take a bit more time. If you say that then you want to stay with it. You will have seen quite a lot of half decent managers come through the door here, maybe it's not just the managers. As managers we take the rap, that's part of the job. If you are not winning then you will always get criticism. When you're winning it's easier.feedback

He is a fantastic professional, a brilliant player and a lovely boy. It's a horrendous injury, but if anyone can recover from something like this... He will do everything asked of him and more. The good thing is, with the way medical science has advanced, I'm sure he will be back. I think everyone in the game hopes so because nobody ever has a bad word to say about Seamus.feedback

Players at the top peak at the right time to win leagues or win cups and Manchester United had a great habit under Sir Alex of timing that well. I think Sunderland have got that great habit of timing it well so that they aren't relegated. We don't want to be in this position but we are here and we need to use every bit of experience we have got to get out of it.feedback

When you're in it [danger at the bottom of the table] every day, you see the levels go up. We've got games coming up - we don't have to show it, we have to do it. We tried to make chances. The one that hits the post and comes out, maybe that'll hit the inside of the post and go in next time. I hope our players understand the position that we're in, but we're not panicking.feedback

When you are trying to build a club, sometimes you have to sell a player along the way, but I would hope it would not be Jordan because he has been really exceptional this season. The best thing for Jordan is to keep on progressing. The good thing for Jordan is that he has proved that you can break into the England squad, and become an England player, playing here at Sunderland. Of course, part of it is because you are getting worked but more importantly he is here playing games in the Premier League. We don't have a problem at the moment. We have got no interest in selling him.feedback

I hope Jordan goes on to have the same kind of career as Joe Hart, because Joe has been excellent.feedback

I liken Jordan to Joe Hart a bit, in terms of his career, although Joe came from a different level with Shrewsbury. But they have a similar kind of stature, the way they look, even their attitude.feedback

Just getting a wee bit naughty at the end there so just watch yourself. You still might get a slap even though you're a woman. Careful the next time you come in.feedback

It was in the heat of the moment. I deeply regret the comments I made. It's not the person I am. I accept it was a mistake. I spoke to the BBC reporter who accepted my apology. Sunderland have known about it for two weeks. Sometimes these things happen in the heat of the moment. If you look at my character and personality it can't be further from the truth. This can happen. We are in an industry where sometimes you don't always answer things the way you want to. It is difficult when you are put in front of the camera so soon after the games.feedback

It was getting a wee bit naughty at the end there so just watch yourself. You still might get a slap even though you're a woman. Careful next time you come in.feedback

You'd have to give the manager credit for doing what he's done to get the best out of the players. Whoever he plays with, Aguero is a threat. It would be good if he wasn't playing, that's for sure.feedback

I think we've got the players ready and focused for this one. They know the job at hand. It's a big task. But I think it's one that we are all relishing. I think it's the sort of games that United over the years have been involved in and had a good record and we're going to have to try and do that again.feedback

We go into the game knowing on our day we are as good a side as any, we have to show it more often than we have done, but I have great belief in the players I have said that from day one and it has not changed.feedback

My future is not changed one bit, I have got a great job. I know exactly the direction I want to go in. It has not been the season we hoped we would have at this present time, but I have got ideas what I want to do, I am going to put in place when the time is right. But the most important thing just now is to get the Olympiakos game played, hopefully get through in that competition.feedback

I am just surprised that I didn't see that level of performance coming, I didn't see that. But I have to say I still don't think we were necessarily two goals worse off in the game, we have a shot which gets deflected. But we didn't offer enough on the night to create a goal.feedback

The players know; the players are hurting as well. They know how they performed. But it's a team here, it won't change and we will stick together and as I said earlier there is a second game to come at Old Trafford. And Old Trafford has seen some great games in the past and I am looking forward to hopefully seeing another one.feedback

Its the job, we won 5-0, we won well, we played well with some outstanding performances and I think I said it before, to come to Germany and to win 5-0, I think they have a great record here in Leverkusen so that puts it into perspective as well.feedback
