Answer: Alex Ferguson

Alex Ferguson was accused of playing 'mind games' when he suggested in an interview that teams such as Nottingham Forest would not make as much of an effort against Keegan's Newcastle as they would against Manchester United. In a Sky Sports interview after Newcastle had beaten Leeds United 1-0, Keegan stated that Ferguson had gone down in his estimation, and ended his interview with the above quote. Newcastle drew 1-1 with Forest. Keegan resigned as manager in January 1997 and was replaced by Kenny Dalglish, who had also replaced him as Liverpool's number 7 in their playing days.

Answer: He was capped several times for Scotland

Get IN!" was the commentator's reaction when Kevin Pressman scored a penalty against Wolves in the 1994-1995 FA Cup, after saving although Sheffield Wednesday still went out. He also scored penalties against Watford and Grimsby Town. Wolves were also the team against whom he was sent off, and a Millwall fan invaded the pitch and told him he would not be leaving the ground alive after Wednesday's defeat of Millwall in the 1995-1006 League Cup.
