This week we've got a cocky David Moyes, a slightly bizarre victory routine from Phil Taylor, and confirmation that Marouane Fellaini is a figure of female desire.

"People keep asking me how did I celebrate? I tell them I stood with my trousers and pants down trying to have a wee while a big bearded bloke stared at me."
Phil Taylor apparently had his drug test conducted by famous comedian Jethro after winning the World Darts Championship.

"If I ask you for a grand out of your pocket you can't give me a grand."
David Moyes mocks the relatively low salary of his interviewer.

"I was recognised too much and sometimes women would suddenly climb all over me."
Marouane Fellaini, Everton attacker and babe magnet, explains why he had to get out of Merseyside. Worth noting Phil Neville remains in Liverpool.

"It could be billed as the man vs midget. Let's get it on! You small stiff idiot."
Tyson Fury shows his trash talk is even worse than his boxing as he challenges UFC heavyweight Cain Velasquez to a fight.

"I think Michael Bisping is a first class pr**k!"
Fury again, hiding behind Twitter as he calls out fighters who would wipe the floor with him.

"I was afraid my brain was going to melt and start to dribble out of my ears. It was like someone detonated a nuclear bomb of boredom in the arena."
Bisping this time, describing a fight that could well have been Fury's dire last outing against Kevin Johnson.

"He has the body of a lion but the legs of a chicken and the heart of a chicken."
Bisping got "Vitor Belfort" when playing Articulate at Christmas

"He's like Jonah Lomu was to rugby."
Phil Taylor then got "Michael van Gerwen" in the next round.

"It was typical English! Unbelievable celebrations for 15 or 20 minutes then everybody goes home and shoots off."
Martin Jol clearly missed the Amsterdam way of doing things on New Year's Eve.

"I'm not allowed to speak to Joe. Are you trying to get me banned by the FA or something?!"
Harry Redknapp sheds light on why it would have been bad for Joe Cole's international career if he'd become England manager.
