One of the biggest misconceptions is that players care

One of the biggest misconceptions is that players care about transfer fees. For a player, they do not care at all. They do not care if they move clubs for one million, 10 million, or 100 million Euros. That is just something a player leaves to his agent and the clubs.
Andrea Pirlo
You’re younger, you might want to go to clubs and kick it, but as you get older, you start seeing that life has more meaning to it. The people that you love are the people you want to start trusting and start wanting them to trust you and start respecting them.
R. Kelly
I sat in at every club in New York City, jamming with musicians, because it felt right – and because it felt right and we were having fun – the people dancing and sipping their drinks in the clubs felt it too and it made them smile.
Ray Conniff
I think I had set-backs, but I still always had that belief that I was going to play for Tottenham Hotspur. Even when I went out on loan to clubs, it was always to come back and be a Spurs player.

The Punch Line is one of the best clubs in the world. It’s an intimidating place if you’re a younger comic, but the community is so lucky to have a place with such a high threshold and standard.
Moshe Kasher
Lots of clubs showed an interest in me, but United just felt right; the whole club, the set-up. It wasn’t the fact that it was United, it was that I walked in here and met people, the staff and physios et cetera, and it just felt right.
Phil Jones
I love all the clubs I play for.

Britney Spears

Ben Webster
The jazz clubs wind up having only rich tourists – the kids can’t come. If they do, then they spend their entire monthly allotments on a 45-minute set.

Allen Iverson
There is definitely a difference when you are fighting for a title against clubs like United or Real Madrid or Barcelona. They are so used to winning, it means that you have to have a different frame of mind when you challenge them because that’s the only way to overcome them.
David Silva
Some memorizers arbitrarily associate each playing card with a familiar person or object, so that the king of clubs is represented by, say, Tony Danza. The grand masters associate each card with a person, an action, or an object so that every group of three cards can be converted into a sentence.
Joshua Foer
My generation put in a lot more hours playing football after school than kids today. These days, all the football these kids play, they play at their clubs, so the clubs need to work seriously on the basic skills.

Neve McIntosh

Etta James

Wesley Sneijder
It’s funny, actually… a few clubs called when I was in preseason with Hull in 2017, but I wasn’t really that interested. My missus was pregnant, and we were in the process of getting everything ready for our big arrival – that was our top priority, like any expectant parents.
Andrew Robertson
I was a huge bookworm, total nerd, so I was a victim in

I was a huge bookworm, total nerd, so I was a victim in middle school. I was in three academic clubs, so I was an easy target.

Rachel Tucker
I never like the TV or movie Harvard characters. The fact of the matter is that most people who go to Harvard went to public schools and weren’t in final clubs. I didn’t even know that final clubs existed until I was a senior.
Lawrence O’Donnell
Everything I do comes from the clubs. If I lose that, I’m done.

Young Jeezy

Jeff Dunham
The big clubs will always talk about the same names such as Ancelotti, Mourinho, and Wenger. Louis Van Gaal is always in there as well. He has his own style and is a very determined man. He knows exactly what he wants. He’s got direction, the ability and experience at big clubs such as Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
Peter Schmeichel
I love football and it’s the sport I would really like to play. I’ve said on national television here that I would really love to play for one of our football clubs when I finished my tennis career.
Novak Djokovic
At Real, psychological pressure on the players is much more serious than at United. This is good. At many clubs, you don’t know the consequence of playing badly.

Fred Armisen
I chose China because I needed something new. Other clubs in Europe and Qatar were also a possibility, but the adventure at Guangzhou was the most interesting.
Mousa Dembele
It strikes me that these days, clubs don’t even want players who can truly play any more; they just want athletes, quick guys who don’t have a football brain, can just run and run; some of them, Jesus. I can never imagine acting like that.
Robbie Fowler
I’m always making tracks. I find that when you make tons of tracks, you stumble upon genius. You can’t always turn the drum machine on and right away there’s a hot track. Sometimes you luck out. But it can take a lot of time between thinking about the artist, listening to music for inspiration or going to clubs.
Scott Storch
When we signed our deal in 1974, we’d already been together for six years. When they lowered the drinking age in Ontario in 1971 to 18 years, we went from playing two or three high schools in a month to playing clubs two or three times a week.
Alex Lifeson
If Milan agrees to let me go, and if there’s an agreement between the clubs, I would love to play for Madrid.

I used to spend a lot of time at football training, but that time was later spent in amateur acting classes and my local youth theatre, in plays at school and after-school clubs. That filled the void.

I’ve been through the entire gamut of the music industry – I’ve been playing in clubs since I was 14, and I’ve been on Warner Bros, on Sony – I’ve had lots of successes and some serious times of struggle.
Vonda Shepard
I left school and couldn’t find acting work, so I started going to clubs where you could do stand-up. I’ve always improvised, and stand-up was this great release. All of a sudden, it was just me and the audience.
Robin Williams
PSG are amongst the top eight European clubs. They want to go to the next level in the Champions’ League; it is a very big club that would attract any player.

I joined Liverpool in 1978. I was the record signing between English clubs.
Graeme Souness

Roberto Carlos
I grew up in a place where everybody was a storyteller,

I grew up in a place where everybody was a storyteller, but nobody wrote. It was that kind of Celtic, storytelling tradition: everybody would have a story at the pub or at parties, even at the clubs and raves.
Irvine Welsh
Some players are bought by other clubs with an eye to them developing into something special in a few years’ time. Whereas there’s a bit more pressure on some of the other clubs to bring in players who are going to be hitting the ground running and top players verging on world class almost immediately.
Ed Woodward
It’s not enough to just have talent at Atletico Madrid. At other clubs it is, but we can’t sign superstars and have to look for players with a good work ethic.
Diego Simeone
Comedy clubs are sacred ground. That’s where anything goes.
Tracy Morgan
I’ve had three or four Scottish Premier League clubs contact me about going there and doing something. A couple of those clubs couldn’t be further away from London so I’d have to seriously think about it, but it’s nice to be sought after and nice to be wanted.
Adebayo Akinfenwa
I did three club tours before I started playing concert halls, and the clubs were half full the first time around.
John Prine
I always really loved soul music but all my friends were into the new romantic scene. I’d go to new romantic clubs and then go home and listen to soul music. I was sort of ashamed of listening to disco and soul music!
Lisa Stansfield
Clubs shouldn’t be counting on an owner just as a benefactor.
Shahid Khan

Pepe Reina
Champions League football in the Premier League – you’re talking about the top, big, massive clubs, and it’s not something I think I’d get linked with.
Chris Coleman
I am a bit of a control freak. If I get married, my wife isn’t going out. No way. She’s staying at home. She’s not going out to clubs without me. I’ve already decided the rules, whoever she is.
Jermain Defoe
There are not many better clubs to play football for than Liverpool.
Xabi Alonso
I played a lot of tough clubs in my time. Once a guy in one of those clubs wanted to bet me $10 that I was dead. I was afraid to bet.
Henny Youngman
The locker rooms that Donald Trump is in are not at the cut-rate gym with the broken treadmills – they are at his swish golf clubs. They are places of stature.
John Dickerson
People make relegation out to be a fate worse than death but that’s nonsense. If the infrastructure is right, clubs can bounce back.
Jamie Carragher
I would have been happy to play in Holland for a big club, but I can see the point of selling me to an English club. It’s very simple: Dutch clubs are not going to spend £16m on a player like me.
Vincent Janssen
NHL clubs don’t like having to shut down at a critical part of the season and disrupt our season for anything, let alone a situation where we’re not given an opportunity to promote our presence.

Neal Brennan
Most of the clubs I have had, they have been in a precarious situation when I have taken over and I have had to change it, even going back to Scarborough and all that.
Neil Warnock
Without being disrespectful to Leverkusen, playing for Liverpool helps me more because I am playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world, and I have no regrets making this step.
Emre Can
Don’t get me wrong: it’s unbelievable getting linked with big clubs. That’s where you want to go; of course it is.
Andrew Robertson
Cape Town’s beaches are superb and while the water on the Atlantic side is damn cold, it’s very pleasant on the other side. Bring your golf clubs if you play – Cape Town has some fabulous golf courses.
Wilbur Smith
No it wasn’t at the time cause you have to remember, I had been playing clubs since I was 13.
Steve Brown
Zizou has been a leader wherever he has played. He was the captain of France, a World Cup winner and been a winner in all the clubs he played for. So he has enough experience to handle and manage a group. More importantly, he is a man who everyone respects.
Roberto Carlos
When I was younger, I was an avid science girl. I was all about, ‘I’m going to be a doctor.’ Even when I graduated, I was like, ‘I’m going to be a doctor.’ Even though I did acting and I was in plays and drama clubs in high school and college, I still didn’t think I was going to take it on as a career.
Retta
Your man Daddy Yankee, some black and white people who know what’s going on in the ‘hood and the clubs are supporting him and loving him. But he’s speaking Spanish, and he’s speaking directly to the Latino people, and the people who know the language really dig it.
Fat Joe
When I was young, I would go to youth clubs after schoo

When I was young, I would go to youth clubs after school, run by my teachers and there were places to go where you could talk things out or enjoy sport with kids from different areas so territorial barriers were broken down.
Ashley Walters
I have lived my dream and played at the finest of cricket grounds across the globe, and I want to thank the groundsmen, clubs, associations, and everyone who painstakingly prepare the arena for our performances.
Virender Sehwag
When I was in Enschende, beside my apartment there was a field with cows grazing in it. Then, I’m in Milan and discover Fashion Week, the restaurants, the clubs and only beautiful women.
Marko Arnautovic
It is very tough in England. Every away game is hard, of course. And normally, if you’re a big club like Chelsea, you’re supposed to win games at home against smaller clubs. But in England, that’s not the case. We must play well every game.
Thibaut Courtois
I want to make people dance, I want to make people smile, and I want my music to get played in clubs.
Mabel
My goal is to become a key player in one of the ten best clubs in the world and become a leader there.
Granit Xhaka
Music became my focus. At 13, I was jamming with my mates. At 15, I was playing clubs.
Bryan Adams
I first realised I was good at football when I started getting scouted by United, Liverpool, Everton; clubs like that had a lot of interest at an early age, and you kind of know then you’re on the right path. I was about six years old and had to sign a contract at nine.
Jesse Lingard
I was 14 when I arrived at Real Sociedad. No team wanted me in France. I trialled for around eight clubs, and then Real came.
Antoine Griezmann
I cycled when I was at high school, then reconnected with bikes in New York in the late ’70s. It was a good way of getting around the clubs and galleries of the Lower East Side and Soho.
David Byrne
I definitely wasn’t cool in high school. I really wasn’t. I did belong to many of the clubs and was in leadership on yearbook and did the musical theater route, so I had friends in all areas. But I certainly did not know what to wear, did not know how to do my hair, all those things.
Dianna Agron
Man I mean, the great thing about playing clubs in Harlem is people have an appreciation not just for the music but for the history of the music.

Frank Rijkaard
Debating clubs among boys are very useful, not only as affording pleasant meetings and interesting discussions, but also as serving for training grounds for developing the knowledge and the qualities that are needed in public life.
Annie Besant
I’ve never been one to throw clubs, break clubs, or use bad language on the golf course. I’ve played with golfers who’ve done that, and I really hate to see it. If I did something like that, my dad would come get the putter and hit me upside the head with it. I knew better.
Lucas Black
You can never know if there will be a second Cruyff, someone with a great personality who can grow up and make it into the squad of the club they love. But what is certain is that, in the Champions League, there will be big clubs producing these players forever.
Philipp Lahm
Credit to all the clubs, if there are incidents anywhere I think the clubs are very quickly on that and are banning supporters who are making racial comments. I think clubs are very much on top of what they see.
Chris Hughton
I’ve never gone to comedy clubs.
Don Rickles
‘The Dante Club’ was one of America’s most important book clubs, as their Wednesday night meetings ultimately led to our country’s first exposure to Dante’s poetry on a wide scale.
Matthew Pearl
That’s where it all started for me, in clubs and bars, and I don’t ever wanna outgrow that.
Cole Swindell
When I first was trying to play the clubs around Houston to start playing my own songs, songwriters like Eric Taylor and Vince Bell and Townes Van Zandt and Don Sanders were just really encouraging to me and would let me sit in with them during their sets and introduce me to the person that owned and booked the club.
Lyle Lovett
As a footballer, you want to keep testing yourself and you also want to be playing at the biggest clubs possible.
Kemar Roofe

David Trezeguet
Big clubs with one rich owner have been one of the main changes in football since I started playing.
Diego Forlan
The Supreme Court ruled that disabled golfer Casey Martin has a legal right to ride in a golf cart between shots at PGA Tour events. Man, the next thing you know, they’re going to have some guy carry his clubs around for him.
Jon Stewart
Some players like to change clubs around the green to hit high or low shots. I play all of my short-game shots with my 54-degree sand wedge and change my ball position to hit it higher or lower. I think it’s easier to learn one club than four.
Ernie Els
Before I came to Italy to play for Milan in 2007, I saw in the papers that my name was mentioned in connection with some English clubs.
Alexandre Pato
I’ll answer as many questions as I can, but when people have a contract at other football clubs, I think it’s wrong to talk about them.
David Moyes
But between sets I'd sneak over to the black places to

But between sets I’d sneak over to the black places to hear blues musicians. It got to the point where I was making my living at white clubs and having my fun at the other places.
Stevie Ray Vaughan
When you have good players in your squad that means other clubs are looking to them as well. For me, it is a normal situation in football.
Marco Silva
When Atletico tried to buy me back, I did everything I could to make it possible. I had offers from clubs in France and Italy, but I would not have left Chelsea for any other side – only for Atletico Madrid.
Filipe Luis
When I’m in bars or clubs, it gets to the point where I feel I’m obliged to streak. It’s not a problem.
Mark Roberts
I’d been DJ-ing in these clubs in N.Y. and I hated everything that was coming out. So I decided I would make it myself. People were making mash-ups or remixes, but I was extra bored, so I actually started remaking these records from scratch.
Mark Ronson
I am delighted to have signed for Manchester United, one of the most famous clubs in the world.
Edwin van der Sar
Clubs have always wanted to buy me during the summer but I have always stayed loyal because I wanted to stay at Arsenal.
Freddie Ljungberg
Ultimately, playing at international level, at all age groups, is good for a player’s development, and that is good for clubs, too.
Gareth Southgate
I’ve met a lot of military men in my time. After they retire, they are still extremely game. They dress perfectly and have impeccable manners. They always end up as secretaries of golf clubs. I have great admiration for them.
David Jason
There’s not many Premier League clubs as big as Sunderland, with their fanbase and stadium and facilities.
Chris Coleman
In England, there are five, six, seven big clubs, and you can never be sure who will win the title in the end. It’s very exciting.
Mario Gotze
When I started in the clubs, I had to work places where didn’t nobody else want to work. I had to do clubs where street gangs were, had to do motorcycle gangs, gay balls and things of that nature.
Bernie Mac
Jose has managed at some big, big clubs, and at all of those clubs, there is pressure, it comes with the territory. But he has a wonderful way of dealing with that pressure, and when you manage these sorts of clubs, you’ve got to be used to that.
Chris Hughton
If he’s got golf clubs in his truck or a camper in his driveway, I don’t hire him.
Lou Holtz
There are lots of big clubs, and having played for Arsenal, they are also one of them. It’s a huge club, and I was there.
Alexis Sanchez
The only thing I could do was play music, because I’d studied classical guitar, trumpet and piano at the American School in Alexandria. So I started out with two other boys in little clubs in Athens. I became a singer by default when our lead vocalist was late one night. Someone had to sing.
Demis Roussos
I grew up in the West End, so my whole background was living among theatres and musicals and the West End’s coffee bars and clubs. It’s kind of obvious that one day I should do something like that.
Cat Stevens
I made my name and reputation DJing in hip-hop clubs in New York. ‘Celebrity DJ’ is a term that I hated. To me a celebrity DJ is someone that’s on ‘Big Brother’ or in some kind of B-movie who gets a gig to DJ even though they’re not talented enough to do it.
Mark Ronson
The swimmers ask me all the time ‘is it going to be on telly more?’ They want their families to watch them. Not every family can afford to go to Rio or Budapest. And it is nice for the clubs and coaches as well to see the people they have brought up.
Helen Skelton
‘Hairspray’ was my first Broadway show. In the meantime, after the show was over, I would go down and do gigs at these clubs that I wasn’t even old enough to get into. That continued on, and I think what ended up happening was that I just got these incredible opportunities on Broadway.
Laura Bell Bundy
There’s a lot of open mics, a lot of comedy clubs. Whatever money I could make was OK with me. As long as I could pay the rent, eat food, and tell jokes, doing it was good enough for me.
Jo Koy
I’m not suited to Bolton or Blackburn, I would be more suited to Inter or Real Madrid. It wouldn’t be a problem to me to go and manage those clubs because I would win the double or the league every time. Give me Manchester United or Chelsea and I would do the same, it wouldn’t be a problem.
Sam Allardyce
What they call ‘alt-comedy’ now is basically what comedy was like in the ’80s. People tried different things, and everybody went to the clubs; there was no other place. Then somehow, the clubs became infiltrated by Dice Clay and Carrot Top types.
Jen Kirkman
I’m 6′ 6”. It’s hard to find golf clubs that fit you right and work right.
Charles Kelley
When I go to clubs, I don’t have to wait outside.
Fetty Wap
I get recognised, but I’m not the sort of person who frequents popular clubs. I try to keep out of that.
Emilie de Ravin
I started doing stand-up when I was 15 and doing Letterman when I was 20. So I’ve been doing stand-up comedy and clubs for over 30 years. That’s a long time.
Bobcat Goldthwait
It’s funny shooting movies because you get to see clubs during daylight hours, which no one should ever see – it’s not pretty; there’s a reason the lighting is dim in there.
Gillian Jacobs
If success is about winning the league, there will always be 19 disappointed clubs.
Roy Hodgson
Managers lose more than they win until they get to the big 10 clubs; then, they start winning a bit more than they lose.
Clarence Seedorf
You can’t get in the top four if you can’t beat the clubs who are in the top four.
Christian Eriksen
I approached work very seriously. I never went out. I c

I approached work very seriously. I never went out. I couldn’t fathom people who could go out to clubs… I mean, if I had a 6 A.M. call, I had to be prepared. I had to be in bed at a certain hour.
Winona Ryder
At Arsenal and the so-called big clubs, you always know that there will be a bigger spotlight on every single position.
Lukasz Fabianski
The only way I survived at school was by doing impersonations of teachers and pupils. That led to me winning a talent competition when I was 16; the prize was three or four gigs in working men’s clubs. I was just showing off: at the time, I thought that’s what acting was.
Douglas Hodge
When I left Liverpool, I could have stayed in England but that would have meant joining clubs that didn’t play football – just a long-ball game.
Ryan Babel
Chelsea are known as one of the biggest and most successful clubs around.
Willian
There’s actually a song called ‘Vegas Lights,’ which I wanted to be an anthem for Vegas, that represented how I felt when I went to the clubs. I felt this weird energy where everybody was having a good time, and it didn’t matter. Dancing like nobody’s watching. It was kind of beautiful.
Brendon Urie
To be respected as an actor it doesn’t help to be seen out in the clubs.
Ed Westwick
When the big clubs, and Manchester United is one of the biggest clubs in the world, is interested in you, it’s an honour and it’s a kind of an acceptance of what you play – so it’s a good thing.
Mats Hummels
I’ve never done any vocal warm ups, ever. As a matter of fact, I learned to sing playing three sets a night in smoky clubs.
Eric Carmen
Everyone hates the best clubs, it is as simple as that.
Phil Jones
As a player, you’d rather be up against Barcelona, Real Madrid, or Bayern. Big clubs. Great atmosphere. Real excitement.
Lothar Matthaus
It used to be that in comedy you had to play the clubs and work your way up, but now, before you do the clubs, you can put something up on the Internet. It’s public access times a million.
Trevor Moore
Being in a club – clubs are, like, not my favorite thing.
Brian Tyree Henry
I started doing stand up when I was 19. Because I was underage at the time, at certain clubs I would be forced to wait outside until it was my time to go on stage. Then I would do my set, walk off, and be kicked out again.
Anna Akana
People talk about loyalty of players to clubs. But in the everyday world, you don’t see people being loyal to their company when they’re getting offered considerably better deals elsewhere.
Brian O’Driscoll
I think doing more live stuff’s made us feel a certain way about that particular point. I quite like small clubs. I don’t really like playing in big clubs, and I think I’m really into the idea of a few people being together.
Sean Booth
I was like, 18 and it was in West Virginia because I was allowed to get into the clubs in West Virginia, not Pennsylvania where I was growing up. And we went in and there was a drag queen on stage and she was huge and beautiful, but she was lip syncing to a song. I was legitimately stunned.
Alaska
I never ceased to be surprised when southern whites, at their homes or clubs, told racial jokes and spoke so derogatorily of blacks while longtime servants, for whom they quite clearly had some affection, were well within earshot.
Walter Cronkite
I spent my whole teenage life trying to get to London and go to dance school, but when I got there, I couldn’t wait to get to the clubs on weekends. I knew I wanted to make music.
FKA twigs
Most of our players come from the Championship; Chelsea can get more or less anyone from around the world. Some clubs in this division have owners who say it doesn’t matter what they spend. I don’t know what happened to Financial Fair Play but it didn’t exactly level the playing field.
Sean Dyche
I used to go salmon fishing with the late Jim Slater, the renowned investor, and he would give me tips. He told me to buy shares in football clubs, so I invested in Manchester United before its shares went through the roof.
Chris Tarrant
I don’t go to clubs and stuff like that, so I don’t have to put up with it in there. And normally, because obviously I could hurt somebody, and if I look at it that way, I have to back off.
Bubba Smith
You can’t not have feelings about country clubs, whichever side you’re on.
Harold Ramis
I tell people all the time, men don’t talk to me. Even before I was a household name or whatever, when I went to clubs, people were scared to come to me because of the way I looked.
Stefflon Don
I almost never hit a shot all out, and I make a conscious effort to swing my long clubs just as I do my wedges. Keep this in mind when hitting your fairway woods.
Ernie Els
I love the smaller clubs. I love the theaters. I love the festivals. There are things I don’t like. At certain theaters, people can’t get up and dance.
Sharon Jones
I need to improve my shorter stuff with my irons, from 100 to 175 yards. If I can hit a few more greens with those clubs and tighten up the proximity to the hole, that would help a lot.
Jason Day
Making a breakthrough at the big clubs, a lot of it is down to luck with your timing.
Danny Drinkwater
When I was a younger guy doing comedy, it was a big struggle. Promoters canceled me out of clubs left and right when I called somebody a dummy or a yo-yo. Then they realized I was different.
Don Rickles
I am not a supporter of juniors increasingly going to top clubs.
Wesley Sneijder
The European leagues have been there a long time, the coaches have been there, the clubs have been there, there’s history to the teams. There’s already that football support culture.
Christen Press
An Oklahoma girl like me wouldn't even know how to be a

An Oklahoma girl like me wouldn’t even know how to be a diva. I’m just a person who has a cool job. I love to be at home. I rarely go to clubs… and I always wear underwear! I just know I’d fall down, and that’s not for everyone to see.
Carrie Underwood
Neil Etheridge in goal and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, they’ve both come from lower league clubs and done brilliantly.
Neil Warnock
I used to hang out a lot in jazz clubs, and the groups took to a kid like me who wasn’t afraid to get up and sing with a jazz band. Then I started to hang out in rock clubs and learned to carry off different styles.
Eric Burdon
We will not go. The only way to get us there is to come in here with clubs and knock us on the head, and drag us out and take us down there dead.
Morning Star
I think that when people join clubs as simple as a sorority or a fraternity, a football team, a baseball team, it’s just – you want to be in a group. You want to be around people, you want to be with people.
Theo Rossi
There is no winter break, and I think that is the most evil thing of this culture. It is not good for English football. It is not good for the clubs or the national team, and I think you should change it.
Louis van Gaal
Decision making is always top of the tree when it comes to the big football clubs and where it takes you.
Mike Phelan
I win at golf. I’m a club champion many times at different clubs. I win at golf. I can sink the three-footer on the 18th hole when others can’t.
Donald Trump
When I was growing up, I would go hang out with older guys at night in blues clubs.
Gary Clark, Jr.
Strong women together create a special vibe and special power, we are told; thus the ongoing existence of all-female schools and clubs at a time when any remaining all-male organizations are in the crosshairs.
Heather Mac Donald
Every time I’ve done comedy in, like, traditional comedy clubs, there’s always these comedians that do really well with audiences but that the other comedians hate because they’re just, you know, doing kind of cheap stuff like dancing around or doing, like, very kind of base sex humor a lot, and stuff like that.
Aziz Ansari
Watching soccer is my main hobby, really. I’m no tactician or coach, but I enjoy watching the free flow of it, the different styles, and the histories behind clubs. Like Barcelona vs. Madrid – it’s not just a soccer game; it’s a geopolitical struggle. There are great storylines and no commercials.
Andrew Luck
I don’t belong to any clubs, and I dislike club mentality of any kind, even feminism – although I do relate to the purpose and point of feminism. More in the work of older feminists, really, like Germaine Greer.
Jane Campion
I don’t like going out. I hate clubs. I hate being around too many people.
Britney Spears
That is what I always tell service clubs: If you hear of somebody who is very young and talented, pick them up and give them that little assistance to make sure that they get to the professional stage.
Maureen Forrester
The buying power of clubs is very different. You can’t sign players if you don’t have money, and if there is no money, that’s it. As a player, there’s nothing you can do.
Pepe Reina
Outside the golf course, I feel the pressure, and I feel what everybody else is feeling. But on the golf course, it’s just the golf ball and clubs. And when I have that, it just puts a lot of pressure off of me. It just makes me very calm looking at it, yeah.
Inbee Park
Brooklyn is where I primarily developed. I had an opportunity to make records and perform in clubs here and there, and I started networking with the right people in the right places.
Busta Rhymes
Logically, if there was a chance to improve and go to a bigger club, it would be a good opportunity, although there are few clubs bigger than Liverpool.
Pepe Reina
I know that a lot of German clubs are unhappy with the Premier League clubs’ spending, but I think it is something good for all clubs in the end.
Thomas Muller
Arsenal’s past appeals to me – I like clubs with a history.
Alexandre Lacazette
With big clubs, it’s always very demanding.
Ernesto Valverde
I would move back to Italy, but only to Napoli. I speak with respect for all of the clubs I played for, but all of my family and those who know me already know that this is where I left part of my heart.
Edinson Cavani
When I hit my 20s, I struggled to make it. I got married at 19, and my daughter, Je’Niece, was born a year later. I worked blue collar jobs during the day and comedy clubs at night, and I was earning about $25 a year doing stand-up.
Bernie Mac
There’s a tacit understanding among clubs that a good player shouldn’t miss out on the big break of his career or a chance at exponentially improved earnings.
Tim Howard
Just because a coach does not get out the clubs after a match but instead focuses on what he says, that’s not an indicator of cluelessness.
Niko Kovac
Sometimes innocence is a good thing but I think life, experiencing different situations, different clubs, gives you a lot of knowledge.
Bojan Krkic
Disco is the first technology music. And what I mean is that ‘disco’ music is named after discs, because when technology grew to where they didn’t need a band in the clubs, the DJ played it on a disc.
will.i.am
When Dream Theater first started, we were touring in a van and playing clubs.
Mike Portnoy
Chelsea is one of the best clubs in the world, so I don’t see why I would think of leaving.
Oscar
A lot of clubs have lost the perspective of what is a football club.
Edwin van der Sar
Of course we all dream about doing big, playing for big

Of course we all dream about doing big, playing for big clubs, but I wanted to play football because of the love for the game.
Edin Dzeko
Most clubs would actually like homegrown players because they’re a lot cheaper.
Gary Lineker
With the big clubs embracing women’s football and the professionalism you see at the likes of Liverpool, Birmingham, Arsenal and my club Chelsea, it’s really impressive. We’re making great strides.
Eniola Aluko
I don’t listen to music, actually. Obviously I go to clubs; I stand in elevators; a lot of my friends are musicians; I hear music all the time. But I don’t have my own collection of music.
Natalia Kills
If I wasn’t in the entertainment industry at all, I would be a miserable human being serving pancakes at Denny’s. I’m also a singer, so maybe I’d be singing at dark jazz clubs in Brooklyn.
Miranda Rae Mayo
I was surrounded at the time by about a dozen of the enemy, whose clubs rattled upon me without mercy, and the strokes of my sabre were rendered uncertain by the energetic pushes of an attendant who thus hoped to save me.
Richard Francis Burton
I chose Chelsea because I always wanted to play in Europe for one of the biggest clubs. And I’m glad I did.
Oscar
My freshman year of high school I joined the chess and math clubs.
Eric Allin Cornell
One of the reasons I had moved to London to pursue my career was that I could go to the clubs in the evening and maybe meet my heroes, people like Donovan and Bert Jansch and Dylan. I actually did see Dylan in a club one night.
Leo Sayer
On a personal level, I have no hard feelings towards the clubs that didn’t want me.
Antoine Griezmann
I had offers from other English clubs – Manchester United, City and Chelsea, who were the club that more rapidly resolved my transfer and the one that showed more interest in me.
Pedro
For me, I’m a fighter and I like to play for big clubs because that’s where you improve yourself. Every day at training you have to give a hundred per cent to be picked by your manager.
Kolo Toure
Juve are one of the most important clubs in the world. Who would walk away from that?
Fabio Quagliarella
For clubs, free movement plays a big role in transfers and players’ contracts. Players from the E.U. can sign for U.K. clubs without needing a visa or special work permit, making it quicker and easier to secure top talent from across Europe to come and play in our leagues.
Karren Brady
When you wear the jersey of some clubs, you have this pressure every day. It’s not the case in Tottenham.
Hugo Lloris
I’m doing naughty things, I’m drinking too much, I’m going to clubs. It really didn’t matter to me, other than the fact that some parents wouldn’t let their kids hang out with me.
Macaulay Culkin
Throughout all my career, I have been an honest person, responsible, and respectful of my team-mates and the clubs that I have played for and the countries I have lived in.
Javier Mascherano
I was doing clubs when I was 16. I grew up in New York, so back then, you could do that.
Joe Satriani
I’ve been in big clubs, but I want to achieve titles with Valencia.
Michy Batshuayi
I had criticism in different clubs I played for. When i played in Corinthians, Tottenham and Barcelona there was some criticism but I always did my work, trying to do my best.
Paulinho
Any of the the 30 ball clubs have a chance at success, and the fans know that. It keeps everything exciting.
Curtis Granderson
Bayern is one of the biggest clubs in Europe.
Ivan Perisic
I don’t think the authorities realise how much fans in general invest in their clubs.
Neil Warnock
I gave my first interview when I arrived at Chelsea in 2004, and I had said that it had been my dream to play for one of the best clubs in the world and in the best league in the world – this came true, and I am very pleased my dream will last.
Petr Cech
Any club is important. All Latin music movements are born in clubs. There is no better research than going to a club. If your music works, it will bounce up.
Daddy Yankee
The best gift I was ever given was the arts. My mum gave me those on a silver platter. Growing up, her and my grandmother would take me to ballets, classical concerts, even smoky jazz clubs I wasn’t supposed to be in!
Jill Scott
One of my favourite scents in the world is the ‘Brown’ candle from Hotel Costes in Paris. It smells like naughty nights in corners of clubs.
Poppy Delevingne
As much as only playing clubs can become tedious, performing in huge venues can also become off-putting. To go from one to the other feels great. And sometimes playing clubs can be even more stressful, because you really have to think about what you’re going to tell the audience between songs.
Stromae
I am always flattered to hear my name linked with different football clubs. That is good for your ego, but at the same time, I am happy here.
Patrick Vieira
You are always flattered when big clubs are interested in you.
Rio Ferdinand
My dad and my brother took me over to England a few times to train with various clubs. My brother basically ended up sending a CD to a few clubs of me playing football. That seems like a long time ago now, but it ended up signing for Reading.
Gylfi Sigurdsson
Football clubs need to have a better understanding of w

Football clubs need to have a better understanding of what the club stands for and how they go about thier business.
Nigel Pearson
We are no more free agents than the queen of clubs when she victoriously takes prisoner the knave of hearts.
Mary Wortley Montagu
There’s a tendency to make more money at concerts. That’s from a financial standpoint. Night clubs have a better feel, better contact between the artist and the audience.
Al Green
Every time we play our music in clubs, there’s such a strong reaction.
Little Louie Vega
Life changes when you have a child, when you have your own family. You become more careful about what you do. You’re not going to be out late, going out to clubs, hanging out with your friends. You’re going to be at home, taking care of your daughter, playing with her.
Paul Pierce
If you goin’ to work, you gonna put my album on. If you happen to be makin’ an hour-and-a-half drive, you gonna put my album on, because people spend more time in their car then they do in clubs.
Big K.R.I.T.
My posture is changing constantly with different length clubs. I have to. Whether it’s subconscious or not I’m still changing. That’s going to put another variable. I said, ‘Why can’t we make the lengths all the same?’
Bryson DeChambeau
I’m prepared to spend the rest of my life playing clubs, if that means I’m playing music that I believe in.
Billy Corgan
You don’t see me in the clubs unless I’m throwing a party for Fashion Week.
Kimora Lee Simmons
In all my years in show business – on stage, clubs and TV shows – my audience has been 75 percent white. In Las Vegas and Atlantic City I look out at the crowd and only see a few black faces here and there. But I can’t allow myself to be conscious of the race factor. I couldn’t perform my best under those conditions.
Nipsey Russell
I really enjoy the immediacy of the ‘knife and gun clubs,’ as they’re so callously called. Emergency is a great place to learn about people.
Ethan Canin
Rich clubs, where money doesn’t matter… such clubs don’t interest me.
Jupp Heynckes
Most of my players have come through academies with clubs. That’s not a bad thing, but it’s very different to what I grew up with.
Sol Campbell
The Old Firm clubs are not easy clubs to manage and sometimes I think frustration comes in that, in the end, make you happy to be leaving.
Walter Smith
I think you have to refresh the squad every year, and I have done it with all my clubs.
Louis van Gaal
I’ve used Nike clubs since I was 13.
Tommy Fleetwood
I have to get used to international management. The players will go back to their clubs, they will all be playing at the weekend, they will all be thinking about other things.
Steve Clarke
At first, I was only interested in music, but I spent so much time in the clubs and seeing fashions change. So naturally, I developed an interest in it.
Tiesto
I think the comedy clubs tend to homogenize the acts a little bit, because they force them to be palatable in way too many environments.
Bo Burnham
Book clubs, both online and in person, have become a large percentage of the reading public, and many of them won’t consider reading books in hardcover.
Christina Baker Kline
I don’t go to clubs and throw money and pop bottles. That’s not my thing, no disrespect.
Yelawolf
I was in 30-plus clubs when I was 14 years old.
T-Pain
As much as we love playing the small clubs, we’d really like to get ourselves in front of a larger audience. I’m not talking about arenas or anything, but nice theaters and larger clubs.
Chris Frantz
I love playing the Hard Rocks; they’ve got a great stage, great lighting, great sound, and not so humongous; its more intimate, so we love playing theaters and clubs where the audience has a really good chance to see and hear the group and where the acoustics are good. I like it when we can hear what we’re doing.
Mike Love
You know, fame is a funny thing, man, especially, you know, actors, musicians, rappers, rock singers, it’s kind of a lifestyle and it’s easy to get caught up in it – you go to bars, you go to clubs, everyone’s doing a certain thing… It’s tough.
Eminem
Competitions are great. Unlike a lot of other creative industries they are a great way of climbing the ladder early on. If you win a comp you get on the big clubs’ radar. Some people are not great at competitions, so it doesn’t work out for everybody, but it is certainly a good way of getting seen by industry people.
Joe Lycett
When I played for Stuttgart, I met Manchester United and Chelsea. With United, I immediately think of the duels with Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes and with Chelsea, it was John Terry. Those players are symbols of their clubs and the success they had at that time.
Philipp Lahm
I have played lots of clubs since I was 14, but I always did my own music.
Vonda Shepard
I’m sure any player will tell you that to play with Real Madrid is a dream come true. I dreamt of playing here when I was young, at one of the biggest clubs in the world.
Emmanuel Adebayor
I want to move to one of Europe’s best clubs if I leave Rotterdam, just like Robin van Persie and Kuyt did before.
Georginio Wijnaldum
They wanted to play me central midfield when I was at Aston Villa, so that’s why we left. Things were going good at Coventry, but then scouts from Manchester United and different clubs around England were watching me, and I don’t think Coventry liked that.
Daniel Sturridge
My kids are in school and in all these clubs - chess cl

My kids are in school and in all these clubs – chess club, fashion club, you name it. When my dad came home from work, it was late, and when he left, it was early in the morning. On my days off, I’m still taking my kids to school and picking them up. I do what I have to do to keep that relationship.
Omar Dorsey
I don’t go out to clubs. You’ll never see me on a table at a bar, jumping up and down.
Lea Michele
I always want my old clubs to do well. But I have only one love in my life in football – my home club Chivas, in Guadalajara. The other clubs are my girlfriends.
Javier Hernandez
When I started on the London circuit in 1989, nationwide there were about 150 to 200 people that were what you could call alternative comedians – that weren’t club comics. Now, last year when the Laughing Horse chain of clubs held a new acts competition, a thousand people entered. So, there are 800 people more.
Stewart Lee
When it comes to female fan attention, I’m married, so obviously I avoid the places where you might get unwanted female attention – clubs and social environments, bars and public spaces.
Simon Bird
In bridge clubs and in councils of state, the passions are the same.
Mason Cooley
I want the good players of other clubs to stay in the Bundesliga.
Arjen Robben
When you are in the biggest clubs, and you are fighting for the best players with a lot of money, maybe the work of a sporting director is not so difficult.
Manuel Pellegrini
It’s true there were a lot of clubs interested in me – I had talks with some of the biggest clubs in Europe.
Matteo Guendouzi
I’ve always enjoyed interleague play. It gives you a chance to see different clubs, to go to different places. It gives you a good chance to see where you are, where you stand with other teams.
Jim Thome
I started working at clubs when I was sixteen, which is young. I would not want my kid doing that, but I did, and that’s how it went.
Joe Manganiello
I have dreams of playing in major clubs in Europe.
Fred
As with Cesc Fabregas, some players who go and play for foreign clubs improve on a cultural level. It makes them grow on many levels; intellectually, because you have to learn a new language and adapt to another culture, and on a footballing level too.
Vicente del Bosque
What Tupperware has stood for all these years is the independence of women, allowing women to work from home, earn a living – and that what this Boys & Girls Clubs of America program, the SMART Girls program, is about.
Brooke Shields
There’s a bootleg album that was recorded when I was 14 or 15, a compilation of things live at different clubs. Songs like Girl from Ipanema and Cry Me A River. I don’t know what the title of it is.
Edgar Winter
That is football. In the end, all clubs spend money.
David de Gea
I must have played every college and university at least three times, and that goes for most of the clubs. I’d be on the road six days a week, go home and change bags, and then be gone for another six days.
Richie Havens
I didn’t want to be 40 or 50 years old and still playing clubs, I didn’t feel like I was making any progress, and I actually gave the band notice at one point. I began to have doubts about my abilities.
George Strait
In the Premier League the big clubs can lose and drop points. Games that are supposed to be easy are never easy.
Filipe Luis
At clubs with constant media attention it is harder.
Raul
A lot of people talk about clubs but if something happens the club will know and will inform me. If one club wants to buy me we will have to sit together to take the decision.
Abdoulaye Doucoure
There is money to be made giving trick-shot shows at schools, clubs, tournaments, and even shopping centers. Pool shows on television almost always include a few fancy shots.
Robert Byrne
I was in three academic clubs, a huge book worm and the teacher’s pet. I was kind of an easy target for bullies.
Nicole Gale Anderson
I have played for many clubs, and for many managers, and been through many highs and lows. But one thing has never changed. And that’s the feeling of scoring a goal.
Mario Gomez
I’d been gigging since I was 14, doing little competitions and pubs and clubs and old people’s homes.
Jade Bird
I don’t go out that often. I’m not going to clubs or anything.
Kevin Dillon
You gotta do both. You’ve got to be on those big tours, and you’ve got to be in the clubs.
Jon Pardi
I thought I could go into Cardiff, but different clubs have different cultures, different playing styles and philosophies. I’m more suited to the other jobs I’ve had.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
We don’t have the money of the Manchester clubs or Chelsea. Arsenal builds its team through training, through recruiting players who can become something. Arsenal has less money than some other clubs, so we have to fight with other values.
Olivier Giroud
There have always been card schools at football clubs and always will be.
Peter Shilton
I enjoy my solo career because I get to play smaller places like clubs and theaters, and the interaction with the audience is much higher quality. It also sounds better than a baseball stadium. Everybody has a good seat, and I don’t have to play a specific part like I do in the Eagles.
Joe Walsh
When I went up to Glasgow University in 1967, student l

When I went up to Glasgow University in 1967, student life was dominated by 13-hour debates on Fridays, when one of the student political clubs would form the ‘government’ for the day and attempt to push through a piece of legislation, which the other clubs either supported or opposed.
Andrew Neil
It’s weird watching games and being apart from it but seeing teams that could use you in certain situations. You see where you could help different clubs in different ways.
Jamal Crawford
If you look at Keith Richards’ hands, from the Rolling Stones, they’re these gnarled, arthritic – it looks like people beat his hands with clubs. It’s amazing there’s so much character in his hands.
Tim Miller
Every coach wants to train Manchester United; it’s one of the biggest clubs in the world.
Louis van Gaal
There were plenty of clubs wanting me but as soon as my agent Lee Robinson told me Derby were interested I had a good feeling.
Harry Wilson
I like the small clubs.
John Lee Hooker
I run an academy in Spain for young footballers who are released by their clubs and who, in my opinion, deserve a second chance. It is a rewarding job for me, but one that also reveals many of the faults in the English game.
Glenn Hoddle
I don’t want to go into the situation of the other teams, other clubs, other managers. Every single club decides their own strategy.
Antonio Conte
Most clubs say they will not tolerate any forms of discrimination – that cannot be something that is just said. It needs to be acted on.
Eniola Aluko
When I was five, 10, 15 years old, I always dreamed of being in the best league in the world, playing with some of the best clubs.
Bernardo Silva
I’d say a lot of black comics were forced to do the black comedy circuit. I’d go into black comedy clubs and see what they’re going through, which is different because they’re almost made to be in another world.
Sinbad
We always play clubs. It’s not something that I feel above. Those are my favorite shows because they’re intimate, they’re tight, their sweaty, they’re hot. You’re close to the people. Those are my favorites.
Joan Jett
When I have signed for clubs, I have always spoken a long time with the CEO or with the owners, not only at United, but also at Bayern Munich and Barcelona, and I have the faith that they always support me.
Louis van Gaal
One of my brothers, Serge, was at a couple of professional clubs on trial, including Palace when they had Ashley Cole on loan. He was a winger, though left-footed, and I learned a lot of my skills from him.
Wilfried Zaha
I have respect for all the clubs I used to play for.
Carlos Tevez
Most recently we’ve been working in concert situations rather than clubs. because there aren’t too many rooms there like Ronnie Scott’s, that are pure music rooms, where people come specifically to listen to music.
Chuck Mangione
In the very beginning, we went on tours with Rammstein in really small clubs. We didn’t even have a record out. We played in restaurants and pubs in the south of Germany.
Till Lindemann
I have played for Ajax, Liverpool and Besiktas in Turkey – all massive clubs in Europe.
Ryan Babel
I’ve always been a big advocate of making shows affordable because a lot of these bottle-service clubs and events are geared toward really expensive experiences. Club music is for everyone, and it drives me crazy that people are getting priced out.
Kaskade
People bring camera phones into comedy shows and clubs and concerts, and sound bites never come out right.
Tracy Morgan
If people would’ve heard what we were doing back in the clubs in the late ’90s, they would be really shocked to find out how country our sound really was back then.
Jay DeMarcus
My father gave me some Jack Nicklaus MacGregor clubs when I was six years old. He cut down some of the shafts, but they were men’s clubs, so they were heavy.
John Daly
We have never seen a sport as a business, and we have this great passion for football. QPR are not a trophy asset. If we had wanted a trophy asset, there were more glamorous clubs we could have bought.
Amit Bhatia
Golf has become so manicured, so perfect. The greens, the fairways. I don’t like golf carts. I like walking. Some clubs won’t let you in unless you have a caddy and a cart.
Robert Redford
I’m a very recent convert to the gay scene. I went to a party a couple of years ago and met a very nice man who took me under his wing and started taking me out to clubs. It was a revelation.
Matt Lucas
At the beginning, there was no chance I’d get published so I thought I’d give it a go live. I had to perform in rock band places and working men’s clubs, where you wouldn’t expect to find poetry. I ploughed a lonely furrow.
John Cooper Clarke
Atlanta is a very good scene for the type of music I’m making. The biggest radio stations are all trap or rap stations. All the clubs are just based around this music and just the southern sound, that’s what I really love about the city.
Murda Beatz
I was sold by Middlesbrough to Liverpool for a record fee between two English clubs and then won European Cups at Anfield, but I couldn’t have been prepared for Rangers. I was a fan as a kid and attended a lot of European nights at Ibrox. I knew the club were big. But not how big.
Graeme Souness
People get DUIs, people get in fights with their boyfriends, it happens, life happens, but it’s about being accountable for your actions. I don’t know. I’m just not that girl, I don’t go to clubs. I’m a pretty normal girl.
Leslie Bibb
I go to screenings, then plays, then after-parties, then clubs.
Michael Musto
There are so many memories for me in Manchester. Everywhere I go, I think, ‘I used to have boutiques here, clubs there, restaurants in that area.’
George Best
If people perceive you as a good actor then they'll wis

If people perceive you as a good actor then they’ll wish for you to be a good actor and they’ll root for you when they watch you, but if you come out and you’re going to clubs every night people don’t root for you anymore.
Shia LaBeouf
I am a huge fan of the Premier League, but do you think it will maintain its attractiveness if the Champions League is only an affair between English clubs and one or two others?
Frans Timmermans
It’s incredible to watch how our cricket clubs depend on volunteers.
Andrew Strauss
When my kids were young, we could move and experience different countries and, in my case, different clubs and different football, but there is a moment when they need some stability.
Jose Mourinho
So it just goes to show you that it was always the Hells Angels first. They were the originals and all other clubs try and imitate what the Hells Angels have already done.
Chuck Zito
All my future plans are related to Real Madrid, and there are no other clubs on my mind. I’m so happy here along with my family. Few players have ended their career here, Zidane being one of the exceptions. I’d like to be one of those players, too, but time will tell what the future holds.
Luka Modric
As a model, I look at clubs like Brighton and the success they’ve achieved gradually on a sustainable budget. I want to take a similar approach.
Andrea Radrizzani
It is not so easy to turn yourself into one of the big clubs in the Premier League and also the Champions League.
Ronald Koeman
The darkness of clubs makes me feel much more secure, and you can hide behind smoke and lights.
Oliver Sim
I wake up late, say 10 or 11, because we’ve usually been out and about town until 2 or 3 A.M. listening to music at the jazz clubs or hitting the jazz clubs post-theater.
Tamara Tunie
Whether people like it or not, you have to say the Old Firm are a major part of Scottish football. I know there is a lot of resentment from other clubs about that, but it’s a fact.
Walter Smith
I like clubs, I like sweat, I like people right up in my space.
Kim Shattuck
The Washington black community was able to succeed beyond his wildest dreams. I mean, we had our own newspapers, our own restaurants, our own theaters, our own small shops, our own clubs, our own Masonic lodges.
Ed Smith
At all big clubs, there is pressure. They all want to win and expect to win.
Aleksandar Mitrovic
No, I did night clubs right here in Los Angeles. My partner, Phil Erickson, put me in the business, a guy from my home town, a dear friend who we just lost a couple of months ago.
Dick Van Dyke
I’ve seen tennis clubs close in Manhattan and garages put up in their place, and I’d sure like to be part of reversing that trend.
John McEnroe
As a manager, you know you’re going to take the brickbats from other clubs and their fans. But I do enjoy making my own fans happy.
Neil Warnock
I don’t want to look out and perform in front of people who are drunk. I did that when I was playing little clubs.
Anne Murray
‘The Good Guy’ is a totally differently-looking New York than ‘How To Make It’ portrays. ‘The Good Guy’ is all about Wall Street and that culture, which ‘How To Make It’ touches on, but ‘How To Make It’ also is downtown, Lower East Side loft parties, cool clubs, Brooklyn and that world.
Bryan Greenberg
Instead of hoping that some day the boys’ club will open its doors, we can form our own clubs, define ‘worthy’ our own way, and celebrate the books and voices that we decide deserve celebration.
Jennifer Weiner
In some of the L.A. clubs, people can act too cool to get into your music. That can get to be a bit much.
Chad Smith
It’s marvelous when you visit Tokyo: they have these clubs, and they’ll have ‘Motown Night’ or ‘The Beatles – Totally Authentic and Live!’ You know it’s shrunk, but at least there’s some sort of youthful figure to it. Whereas, the blues scene in Europe is more like, ‘Here we go again.’
Robert Palmer
I’ve been to some great clubs, great people, watched them training, getting a different view on football, and really enjoyed it.
Paul Lambert
There is no denying that the English league is perfect for me, but there are nice clubs elsewhere, too.
Romelu Lukaku
I have played in big clubs for many, many years. When you win, it is good, but when you lose, nobody is going to be happy, and the pressure is going to be there.
David Luiz
I started growing my audience in small clubs through word-of-mouth. I started making music that isn’t necessarily commercially viable, and it’s not necessarily marketable to my peers to a certain extent.
Kat Edmonson
Playing clubs is the ultimate – you see the faces; you hear the ‘clicking’ glasses – I love all that atmosphere and seeing people’s mouths singing the words to the songs.
Vonda Shepard
I don’t remember what was going through my mind, but what was going through my body was fear and terror. I had been on the road with Johnny and working gigs and playing a lot of the organ clubs.
John Abercrombie
I actually had the chance to sign for Newcastle before I went to West Ham; I didn’t in the end because they had got rid of their reserve team. There were a few clubs interested but I liked what West Ham had to offer and never regretted signing for them, I loved it straight away.
Michael Carrick
‘Vanity Fair’ caught me at a very exciting time in my life filled with night clubs, international fashion shows, celebrities and lots of cash to go around. Sometimes things just fall into place. ‘Vanity Fair’ was one of those things.
Jeremy Jackson
I started at Benfica: not as big but one of the biggest clubs in Portugal. I’ve played for Real Madrid. Then I moved to Manchester United, from a giant to another giant.
Angel Di Maria
Today, the biggest clubs in the world, they buy the pla

Today, the biggest clubs in the world, they buy the players they need for whatever way they think they have to play.
Peter Schmeichel
My time at City and at Bolton was wonderful. I met a lot of good people at both clubs.
Nicolas Anelka
If you want to maintain the unique character of our sport in Europe, which is of great importance to millions of people, you need to be able to put associations in a position to protect the weaker clubs.
Frans Timmermans
Man United is one of the biggest clubs in the world, and we’re going to attract the best players.
Jesse Lingard
Any great club needs the mentality to go on and achieve things – it is what clubs like United have.
Gareth Barry
When the great jazz and blues clubs closed – joints where the cash register rang loudly and there wasn’t ESPN on TV over the bandstand, and people smoked cigarettes and drank whiskey and hollered ‘Play on!’ – When those places closed, I was pretty much done.
James McBride
Always the Premier League has several clubs fighting for the title.
Park Ji-sung
I don’t go to comedy clubs unless I’m working. And when I do work, I come in, I do my time and I leave. I don’t hang out.
Ralphie May
I’ve had the joy of representing some fantastic clubs, all of whom have helped to shape me in their own varying way.
Robert Green
Given the amount of money circulating in the sport, European taxpayers and supporters are entitled to know how their clubs are being managed.
Frans Timmermans
I’ve never really socialized; I’ve always been anti-social and preferred to be at home. I was never, even my late teens and early twenties, into clubs and parties and stuff like that.
Megan Fox
I started out in the 1940s, singing around the clubs of Cleveland, Ohio, where I grew up. There was a woman in showbusiness, a contortion dancer called Estelle ‘Caldonia’ Young – she was named after the song Caledonia Caledonia.
Jimmy Scott
When I was growing up in comedy, there were maybe 10 comics in the whole country. Everyone had a day job. You worked free for years in little clubs, then you got your big break and became a star.
Elayne Boosler
People go on about my style of play. But I tell you what I do – I go into football clubs, I try to find out what systems suit the players and I try to get the damnedest out of those players. That’s what I’ve done everywhere I’ve been.
Tony Pulis
Singing is not indulged in by Rotary clubs of some countries and all clubs are given full privilege to do as they please about including it in their programs.
Paul P. Harris
Pressure, responsibility – I’m used to playing in big clubs.
Richarlison
I was going out dancing in clubs around New York, and that helped create ‘Supermassive Black Hole.’ Franz Ferdinand would have done it very well with that dance-type beat going on mixed with alternative guitar, and I’ve always wanted to find that.
Matt Bellamy
There’s so much you can learn from being on a big tour and so much you can learn from being in the clubs.
Jon Pardi
Well my dad was a pretty good player at one stage and my two older brothers played golf as well. So there were always golf clubs flying around the house.
Retief Goosen
Now I get exposure first with people directly in the clubs. This is a unique situation for me.
Roy Ayers
We know the English market is quite high and I think that sometimes puts clubs off. I think there is a lot of hype around the Premier League.
Glenn Murray
Political scientists after World War II hypothesized that even though the voices of individual Americans counted for little, most people belonged to a variety of interest groups and membership organizations – clubs, associations, political parties, unions – to which politicians were responsive.
Robert Reich
I don’t shout from the rooftops or blow my own trumpet. But I take a lot of satisfaction from the players and staff at clubs who recognise what I’ve done.
Steve Clarke
Chelsea is one of the most important clubs in the most important championship in Europe.
Maurizio Sarri
Managers come to clubs bringing players with them and they want to pick them at all costs – whether they are any good or not.
Kolo Toure
My earliest memories are at the Blue Note here in New York or backstage at different theatres or different clubs, dressing rooms.
Elisabeth Moss
After more than 30 years in the dugout I have come to realise there is a need at many clubs for someone who can act as a link between managers and owners.
Neil Warnock
Why can I cook for tourists that come and visit L.A. and are so excited to see the Kogi truck? Because I cooked at country clubs and Embassy Suites hotels.
Roy Choi
When I got old enough to go to night clubs to hear that music at the age of 15.
Johnny Winter
I’m essentially starting at the bottom of the food chain and playing the small clubs and intimate shows.
Jax Jones
English, Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish football gains so much from being in Europe. Clubs and fans all benefit from European action, laws and funding.
Karren Brady
Sometimes when you make mistakes at big clubs you get p

Sometimes when you make mistakes at big clubs you get punished. With Arsenal, people always seem to blame the defence for defeats. But I feel really safe behind them.
Emiliano Martinez
I’ve been driving in the city for years because, as a stand-up in N.Y.C., you can perform at more comedy clubs a night if you have a car. Getting from club to club by subway is too slow at night and too expensive by cab. So, many comics live far out from Manhattan and drive in every night.
Judah Friedlander
The way those clubs shift against Ted Williams, I can’t understand how he can be so stupid not to accept the challenge to him and hit to left field.
Ty Cobb
Obviously, there are many clubs that make me dream, like Real Madrid or Barcelona.
Franck Ribery
In the clubs, it’s all out and you can say whatever as the character. TV has standards.
Jay Pharoah
She used to drive me to clubs for engagements and when I was 16 I got a job presenting a TV show in Newcastle. My mum didn’t really like driving, but she carried on. Once I remember we got stuck in a snow storm, but she carried on to get me there in time. She was an amazing, incredible person.
Lisa Stansfield
You try and learn from clubs where you have been or actions clubs are taking to grow in certain markets, and that, for myself, is also important.
Edwin van der Sar
Those who can keep achieving results are the big players at the big clubs. If you cannot get the results, you just can’t play and move away.
Shinji Kagawa
It’s not an easy challenge picking up players in January, I’ve always found it tough. Clubs don’t want to release their better players.
Neil Warnock
I am telling you, Lebanon was fun. I played for 5,000 people in a sold-out venue. The clubs there don’t even open until 4 A.M. If a bomb goes off, people don’t get excited. They live every day like it’s their last because it could possibly be.
Eddie Griffin
Liberal democracies like ours seem, for the most part, to have learned how to avoid meticulously planned mass-casualty plots with the complexity and scale of 9/11. But they don’t know how to keep their citizens safe at night clubs and concerts, in supermarkets, on beachfront promenades, from truck drivers.
George Packer
Even for great players, things don’t go well at certain clubs and that’s normal.
Thiago Silva
I am a regular for one of the biggest clubs in Europe, and I want to progress still further.
Granit Xhaka
I came to London with a girl. We lived together and split up very quickly. I was on my own in London so started going to comedy clubs.
Lee Mack
The way I view comedy clubs is, people are drinking, they’re ordering food, they’re out for the night, and there’s also a person onstage talking. And with the theater, they came to the theater, and they’re waiting to hear what you say. So you’d better have something to say.
Mike Birbiglia
There is hope to catch up, as long as Leeds get to the Premier League. I feel with a project an idea and people of quality we can close the gap on clubs with a different budget.
Andrea Radrizzani
It’s not like I played my first football match in England. For me, football is pretty much the same everywhere; the ball is round, but maybe tactically, things are different than at other clubs I’ve played for.
Granit Xhaka
Growing up in New Jersey, teen clubs were your life. I’m not kidding! That was it. I was literally tied up five days a week with teen clubs; my parents would drop me off. Like, I didn’t even drive.
Michelle Visage
In terms of comedy, I never did five-minute sets or clubs or anything. I just started doing shows. Coming from that theater background, it never crossed my mind that I should start doing five-minute sets.
Tim Minchin
Myself and Cameron Lickle travel around North America in an RV and we conduct tennis clinics in clubs.
Mats Wilander
I want to do this for a long time; I want people to be saying, ‘What is he doing still playing in clubs?’
Cole Swindell
Variety shows didn’t disappear; it was the caliber of the artists, the classic vaudevillians that have passed on. They are gone, so there’s a different caliber performer that’s come along that hasn’t had the time to work in the small clubs and get the experience.
Flip Wilson
I’m very happy to have been a one-club man, but I wouldn’t shoot down guys who have gone off and played in multiple clubs either because, essentially, it is an earning that people are after.
Brian O’Driscoll
Where do you go from Real Madrid that’s better? There’s one or two clubs up there but none better.
Chris Coleman
The best managers out there at the moment are Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho but they are at other clubs – Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Gary Neville
My own life values were shaped in great part by my mother, who instigated women’s clubs in my village. Women were able to organize and stand together. What inspired me most about their work was the power it gave them to assert their rights and the rights of their daughters, be it education or property inheritance.
Winnie Byanyima
Both casual, unthinking discrimination and deliberate, malicious homophobia erode self-confidence and undermine mental health. Both are far too common, not just in our schoolyards or online but in sporting clubs, in the outer and even in our national parliament.
Bill Shorten
It certainly is dangerous that there are only a few clubs left in Europe that can afford to pay millions. At the end of the day however, the spectators decide the rates of pay – by watching the games and consuming the goods and services advertised on sports TV programmes.
Angela Merkel
I came here knowing nobody. I worked clubs as a singer and even the doors a few times before I landed some TV roles.
Chazz Palminteri
I act for my fans. I expect them to enjoy my performance rather than starting fan clubs.
Navya Nair
Among the clubs that most wanted to recruit me were Marseille and Leicester.
N’Golo Kante
I don't feel any great need to dress in funny-looking c

I don’t feel any great need to dress in funny-looking clothes and be recognized as a star, nor do I get that much satisfaction out of hanging around all the main clubs so people can see who I am.
Billy Squier
I used to not be as good at taking time off and hanging the clubs up.
Justin Thomas
Growing up doing those Kiwanis Clubs, doing those Cub Scout banquets, doing those church shows, I learned to find that sensibility that most people could laugh at – that all ages and demographics could laugh at.
Jeff Dunham
I’m very comfortable with tweeting, I have a very active author Facebook page, I Skype book clubs all over the world.
Cathy Marie Buchanan
I think you always want to see your former clubs doing well.
James Milner
Even when disco went out, I could still make hits. Once I had so much success, every idea became concentrated. I had so much confidence. I knew how the bass should sound, what rhythms would work. The tempos I knew: 110 to 120 BPM. I knew they would dance in the clubs in New York or anywhere.
Giorgio Moroder
As much as you act like everything is programmed or calculated or researched or numbers, spins, radio, and clubs, it’s still human beings out here you can reach with music.
No I.D.
I love the shows that are in dingy little dark clubs, smoky, no production whatsoever.
Pink
I’m very fortunate to have worked at two unbelievable clubs, Manchester City and Barcelona, and I feel like I’ve really changed the way I look at football from being around and in those environments, so I feel really privileged.
Toni Duggan
Clubs don’t change managers unless there is something wrong.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
I still love touring rock clubs around the world, and that’s something that’s really a part of me. I love making albums, and I’m a wedding singer on the side; that’s my parallel career. So I love all those aspects of making music.
Jens Lekman
Celtic are one of the great clubs of the world. There’s a pressure here that’s different. You have to win every game. There’s not a club in England that has that.
Brendan Rodgers
The Premier League is just a really cool league, the most interesting in the world, but you must always respect other big clubs and leagues.
Emre Can
If you’re playing the clubs, you’re either on your way up or your way down.
Al Madrigal
I love looking out at a sea of people. It’s mind-blowing. But I also like playing clubs.
GRiZ
When we were doing shows in the mid-’90s, the audiences were 95% black. What’s happened now is the gentrification of hip-hop. A lot of cities passed ordinances that made it hard for black audiences to gather in large groups. Clubs are more open to hip-hop now ’cause it’s the same crowd that goes to rock shows.
Boots Riley
I actually don’t mind a bit of football banter from opposing fans. In fact, I quite like getting hammered by supporters of other clubs. But it’s when you get it from your own fans that it’s not nice.
Jack Grealish
My intent when I moved to L.A. was to get in good with the comedy clubs and, eventually, try to break into Comedy Central and have my half hour special.
Nico Santos
Having been at big clubs, when you sometimes don’t produce, then don’t expect the fans to understand. They will boo.
Tite
Journalists should think of themselves as outside the Establishment, and owners can’t be too worried about what they’re told at their country clubs.
Rupert Murdoch
I love being around gay people, going to gay clubs.
A. J. Pritchard
The important thing for the future is that our schools and clubs have more and better coaches and teachers to ensure that all that enthusiasm, spirit and talent is harnessed and developed.
Lynn Davies
To tell you the truth, man, we spend most of the time travelling in hotels, in festivals, in concert halls, clubs, airports. The most unenjoyable part is all the security at airports.
Hugh Masekela
I’ve been trying not to think too much about the rumours of clubs being linked with me.
Radamel Falcao
In football, in football clubs, there are many decisions that don’t make business sense. Yes, there is always a lot of emotion involved.
Frank Lowy
We went from playing small clubs to quite big stages quite quickly, and a lot of the time, I felt like I was trying to catch up with myself. Figuring out how to take up space was an interesting journey.
Lauren Mayberry
I’ve been to Philadelphia a lot of times over the years, playing the old Celebrity Room and most of the other clubs around there that don’t exist anymore.
Don Rickles
Thinking back to how it fell apart for Mourinho at Chelsea, I do have some sympathy for him. At most clubs it is the manager who determines the long-term stability of the players but at Chelsea it seems very much the other way round.
Eniola Aluko
In the German football team players from different clubs need to get on with each other both on and off the pitch. In the grand coalition Christian Democrats and Social Democrats sit in the same boat and need to pull in the same direction.
Angela Merkel
Top European clubs are always progressing with what they can do off the field. Training is getting more scientific, and we are constantly getting more educated on nutrition.
Andrea Pirlo
Through hard work, passion and determination my teammates and I transformed TFC and made it one of the best clubs in MLS and in North America.
Sebastian Giovinco
I feel very settled. I'm not running in and out of club

I feel very settled. I’m not running in and out of clubs at 5 A.M. anymore.
Jamie Dornan
I spent my career at big clubs.
Roberto Carlos
There were a lot of clubs interested in me – a lot, really. But Manchester United appeared and didn’t go away. They absolutely wanted me, and it happened.
Angel Di Maria
I feel completely contented at Bayern – one of the biggest clubs in the world.
Jerome Boateng
It’s only a matter of time before the English clubs become a lot more competitive in Europe, if not dominant, because our league is, by far, the richest league in the world.
Gary Lineker
