Some quotes on Giggs

Some quotes on Giggs

“This is embarrassing to say but I have cried twice in my life watching a football player. The first one was Maradona and the second was Ryan Giggs” – Alessandro Del Piero.

“His talent is God-given. He will have wonderful skill even when he’s got his bus pass, because that sort of ability never deserts you.” – Brian Kidd

“Maybe one day people will say I was another Ryan Giggs.” – George Best

“Ryan makes you believe there is a football God.” – Ron Atkinson

“I can’t remember exactly how old I was but I remember pretending to be Ryan in the back garden.” – Tom Cleverley

“I think it will only be when he hangs up his boots that people will realise just how remarkable a player he is and just what he has achieved.” – Rio

“ There have been so many outstanding players I’ve had as team-mates, but if I had to choose I’d choose Giggsy, he can do anything.” – Paul Scholes

“I was almost in tears watching him perform.” – Alan Smith

“Ryan’s amazing. His energy, his work-rate, his passing and his movement are unbelievable. It’s a privilege to play with him.” – Wayne Rooney

“The first time I saw Giggsy, he was playing for Salford Boys against United’s apprentices. He was thin and wiry but he just glided past four of our apprentices as if they weren’t even there, then he put the ball in the back of the net. I just thought ‘This kid’s an absolute natural’.” – Bryan Robson

“When Ryan runs at players he gives them twisted blood. They don’t want to be a defender anymore.” – Sir Alex Ferguson

“Eric Cantona is a great player, but he’s not as good as Ryan Giggs.” – Johan Cruyff

Try To Reach Out For Others

One stormy night many years ago, an elderly man and his wife entered the lobby of a small hotel in Philadelphia, USA. Trying to get out of the rain, the couple approached the front desk hoping to get some shelter for the night.

“Could you possibly give us a room here?” – the husband asked.

The clerk, a friendly man with a winning smile, looked at the couple and explained that there were three conventions in town. “All of our rooms are taken,” the clerk said. “But I can’t send a nice couple like you out into the rain at one o’clock in the morning. Would you perhaps be willing to sleep in my room? It’s not exactly a suite, but it will be good enough to make you folks comfortable for the night.”

When the couple declined, the young man pressed on. “Don’t worry about me, I’ll make out just fine,” the clerk told them.

So the couple agreed.

The next morning, the elderly man said to the clerk, “You are the kind of manager who should be the boss of the best hotel. Maybe someday I’ll build one for you.”

The clerk looked at them and smiled. The three of them had a good laugh. As they drove away, the elderly couple agreed that the helpful clerk was indeed exceptional, as finding people who are both friendly and helpful isn’t easy.

Two years passed. The clerk had almost forgotten the incident when he received a letter from the old man. It recalled that stormy night and enclosed a round-trip ticket to New York, asking the young man to pay them a visit.

The old man met him in New York, and led him to the corner of Fifth Avenue and 34th Street. He then pointed to a great new building there, a pale reddish stone, with turrets and watchtowers thrusting up to the sky.

“That,” said the older man, “is the hotel I have just built for you to manage.”

“You must be joking.” – the young man said.

“I can assure you I am not.” – said the older man, a sly smile playing around his mouth.

Moral Lesson- This young clerk never foresaw the turn of events that would lead him to become the manager of one of the world’s most glamorous hotels. Don’t be afraid to reach and touch someone’s life, you never know who’s heart you may be touching.

Laugh Out Loud

Akpos and Musa were caught in a Northern African country, sharing a smuggled barrel of beer. They were arrested and taken to the Sheik’s palace for questioning and judgment. Akpos lied that Musa smuggled and forced him to drinkthe beer! Both were initially given a death sentence but, as it was a national holiday, the Sheik decided they should be released after some lashes of the whip. As they were preparing for their punishment, the Sheiksaid, “It’s my first wife’s birthday today and she asked me to allow each of you 2 wishes before your whipping, but you cannot wish not to be whipped!” Akpos thought for a second then said: “Please tie two pillows to my back before whipping.” And my second wish is that you flog me only 20 strokes of the whip. He was whipped, and luckily for him, the pillows helped to make the pain of the whip lesser. Musa saw this; thought for a second, then said: “Thank you, most royal and merciful highness for the wishes. My first wish is to receive 100 lashes with the strongest, toughest whip available.”, Akpos laughed and thought Musa was a fool…The Sheik replied with apuzzled look on his face,” and your second wish?” Musa replied “Tie Akpos to my back!”

what is FEAR exactly

I loved this image for a couple of reasons. The acronyms are sheer genius, but second and even more important – it reinforces and recognizes the choice we always have and the power we ALWAYS have. How we handle fear will determine who we are. Fear will determine the relationships you do or do not have, the places you go or don’t go, what you can and can’t handle, what you say yes or no to, your ability to seize opportunities and your able to learn, do, try and become something new. POWERFUL STUFF!!

Make fear your friend. Make fear the best thing to ever happen to you.

Make fear put you on a path of achievement and power.

Make your ability to ‘rise above’ fear, the foundation for your confidence, self esteem and self image.

And always remember that FEAR is nothing more than False Evidence Appearing Real!


What is fear to you?

Sexy breasts and nipPLES are more valuable than brains and princiPLES, these days. And that’s why more Nigerians on DSTV watched Big Brother Africa than CNN. And that’s how we got here.
That’s why you pay for VIP for a D’Banj show and think that a class or book is too expensive.
She wants a sound and responsible guy, she’s fine, she has a wardrobe of designer clothes, but no library or a book of her own.
And then, we stumbled upon CNN while searching for MTV, and I asked her if she knows what’s happening in Syria, and she asked me, “do you mean cereal”?
I’m coming..
I asked my cousin the last time he read a book, and he said “before the ASUU strike”.
U can buy Q10, Iphone, different types of hairs, clothes, jewelries…. But when it comes to EMPOWERING yourself, U go price am like pepper Hmmmmm! I pity U oooo
And that explains what’s happening…
No matter what you have, you are what you value more
America is the entertainment capital of the world, with trillions of dollars in debt. China is the industrial capital of the world with the fastest growing economy. America or China, which is the model?
We can get it right:
Trust me, there’s a huge potential here, even in a growing country of over 160 million people managed by mediocre and leaders of nuisance value, if ONLY you and your team can stand out, we can go further ahead as we’re building minds, businesses, people and brands.
The revolution is here.

Inspiration Wednesday

There was once a man who was ship-wrecked and stranded on an island. Every day he prayed asking God to send someone to rescue him, but to his disappointment, no one ever came.

Months passed and this man learned how to survive on the island. During this time, he accumulated things from the island and stored them in a hut that he constructed. One day after hunting for food and returning back to his hut, much to his dismay he saw that his hut was on fire along with everything else he owned!

All of his possessions were going up in smoke! The only thing he had left were the clothes on his back. Initially he was in shock, and then he was consumed with anger and rage!

In his fury he threw a fist into the air and began cursing God and yelling, “God, how could you let this happen to me? I’ve been praying everyday for months about being rescued and no one has come, and now everything that I have is on fire! How could you do to this to me! Why did you let this happen?”

Later the man was on his hands and knees weeping heavily when he happened to look up and catch sight of a ship coming in his direction. The man was rescued and as they were heading back to civilization the man asked the captain, “How were you able to find me?”

The captain responded, “We were voyaging across the ocean when we noticed on the horizon a column of smoke going up. We decided to go check it out and when we did, that’s when we found you!”

Moral Lesson- In life we are going to be confronted with challenges, problems, and disasters. But keep in mind that what the devil has meant for bad, God can transform into your good! What is a catastrophe can sometimes be a blessing in disguise. “The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.”

Always Be Thankful

A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet.  He held up a sign which said: “I am blind, please help.”

There were only a few coins in the hat.

A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat.  He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words. He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy.  That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were.

The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, “Were you the one who changed my sign this morning?  What did you write?”

The man said, “I only wrote the truth.  I said what you said but in a different way.” I wrote: “Today is a beautiful day but I cannot see it.”

Both signs told people that the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people that they were so lucky that they were not blind. Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?

Moral of the Story: Be thankful for what you have. Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively. When life gives you a 100 reasons to cry, show life that you have 1000 reasons to smile. Face your past without regret. Handle your present with confidence. Prepare for the future without fear. Keep the faith and drop the fear.

The most beautiful thing is to see a person smiling. And even more beautiful, is knowing that you are the reason behind it!

Tribute To My Mother

A tribute to my mother

Just like yesterday i was with you in the hospital i did some laundry for you, till when Yusuf came so that I could go home and rest, just for me to get a call from Yusuf to come back to the hospital for the laundry I did, when I saw your bed gone my mind went blank. I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to you, to tell you that I loved you, to say what now must be one long unbroken cry of pain. Mum your death come as a surprise when the family needed you the most but I am grateful to God for the 21 years that you have being part of my life building and developing me, how comes they call it goodbye it pains to say goodbye its one of the saddest word I have to say.

Death is like a car that disappears around a curve,

Like an ancient custom that we’ve failed to preserve.

The car continues going even though we cannot see it,

And the custom just remains itself, outside of memory.

Death is a relation to a certain time and place;

To eternity it’s nothing in line of endless grace.


When you lost someone like your mother is like learning to living with amputation, I have to adjust to so many things mum, like living without ur advice, eating junk food from restaurants, God has being a faithful teacher just like He said “I will be the father/mother of the fatherless/motherless” He has teach me to trust Him and He has since being faithful to me. Mum I love and wish you are still to share in my good will and to be a part of what God has done for me.

Mum Shangapani is doing well he got promoted, Ruth has given birthday to a son his name is Dedan, I, Yusuf, Philip and Hamsatu are all grown ups now and doing well. Your legacy will live through. You will always be remembered and I will choose you to be mother if I have a chance of being given birth to again with an option of choosing the mother.
