Premier League - Ancelotti expected Chelsea meeting
Managerial reaction from around the Premier League, with Carlo Ancelotti not expecting to be sacked by Chelsea.
Everton 1-0 Chelsea
David Moyes on Jermaine Beckford's goal: "Roy of the Rovers lives on! It is the sort of thing you would read in one of the magazines - get it in your own box, pass three players, get up there. Okay you get a wee bit of a ricochet and it bounces for you and the keeper just gets his hand on it but it spins inside the post. It really epitomised the whole performance. We played well with 11 and did well with 10."
Carlo Ancelotti before being sacked: "I am now on holiday - but I am not sure how long my holiday will be! We haven't arranged any meeting but I think in the next week, now the season is finished, the club can address my job and they will take a decision. I have to wait and see what happens. I don't have to say anything to the club - they can judge me on my job for two years."
Man Utd 4-2 Blackpool
Alex Ferguson: "Looking back over the years, none has been more dramatic than this. Apart from the excitement, there have been all those last minute goals. It is the nature of our club to do it that way. They epitomise the spirit of Manchester United. There have been a lot of great performances. All that nonsense about this not being a great Manchester United team. It is a great feat."
Ian Holloway: "The fat lady has finished singing and I do not like the tune. The Premier League have rung me up and said 'we really love you Ian Holloway'. But they have never helped me. It is a great league. But the people who run it shouldn't. There should be people above them telling them what to do. Nobody has to hear from me for another 12 months but hopefully I will get the chance to tell them about how they do things."
Tottenham 2-1 Birmingham
Harry Redknapp on Spurs' critics: "I haven't heard anyone moaning. They are idiots aren't they? What kind of idiot picks up a phone to ring a phone in. They are idiots and I don't listen to them. We have had an amazing season - it won't get any better, enjoy it. This is good as it can get. Where do they expect us to be - above Man Utd, Man City, Arsenal, Chelsea?"
Alex McLeish: "I'm obviously pretty gutted. When we got a goal I thought we'd done it but then there was the Wolves' comeback and their late goal. You'd expect them to come back - but the way it's happened to us is devastating, losing the battle to avoid relegation. When we got the equaliser I thought things would go for us - but lady luck has avoided us."
Wolverhampton 2-3 Blackburn
Mick McCarthy: "We were in it, then we were out of it. We were up and then we were down. I was getting messages every couple of minutes on bits of paper. Some had swear words on, others said happy days. I said all along that it would come down to May 22 and it might even be goal difference or goals scored. I do not even know the exact outcome now. All I knew at the end of the game was that we had stayed up."
Steve Kean: "We have produced seven positive results from our last nine games. The team have come together as a group really well. We will be a better team and a better club for it."
Stoke 0-1 Wigan
Tony Pulis: "We took the first half and it was really disappointing that we didn't come in winning the game. They rode their luck a little bit in certain areas and there were some generous decisions that also went their way - but I've got to be careful not to incur the wrath of the FA. In the first 20 minutes of the second half we were poor. We started as if the game had already been won and it was all over."
Roberto Martinez: "It's like winning a trophy - that's the way I feel. I'm extremely proud of this group of players and their achievement is phenomenal. We haven't chosen the easy route and it's a great feeling because this squad has been written off so many times in this campaign. We knew we had the talent but in the last two games we had to show more than that. We were 2-0 down against West Ham and we needed a reaction and people with real responsibility and bravery."
Bolton 0-2 Man City
Owen Coyle: "I felt we were terrific in the first half. We had great opportunities to get in front. We were more than a match for them. The second half did not live up to the first half but I know we have players running on empty as we have not had strength in depth."
Roberto Mancini: "It is a strange competition. We are a good team but maybe we need other players who have played in it and have experience. Every game is a hard game and if you don't have many players you can change in the Champions League and Premier League it would be a really hard season. For this we need good players, many players for these competitions. In football if you don't spend you don't win."
Fulham 2-2 Arsenal
Mark Hughes on Zoltan Gera's red card jeopardising their chance of winning the Fair Play league: "It won't have too much impact because it's factored over 38 games. It is some achievement this season - eighth is an achievement and European football counts as an outstanding season. There is the intention and the will to do well in the competition."
Arsene Wenger: "It was an average game and in the end we felt the disappointment with fourth place because three weeks ago we were in the position to win the league. Of course we didn't lose our top three place here, we lost it last week and that is why in the end we have to go through a qualifier."
Aston Villa 1-0 Liverpool
Gary McAllister: "(Ashley Young) wasn't coming off waving goodbye because we want to keep him. We have to keep trying and a couple of signings here or there might help. I am sure there is interest because there has been a lot of speculation around Ashley for a long time now."
Kenny Dalglish: "We did not qualify for Europe because we lost a game today, it was because we had a bad start to the season. If you start as badly as that you are lucky to be sixth come the end of it. To get so close is a great complement to the players. I'm disappointed we didn't finish on a high as they've (the players) done fantastic to get as far as they have done."
Newcastle 3-3 West Brom
Alan Pardew on transfers: "We have started that process. But we had so many first-team players missing today and we need to make sure they are fit and healthy. These big players are important and we want to add to that. We want to take out three or four players and bring in four who are of the same quality."
Roy Hodgson on Somen Tchoyi: "When I came, he had hardly played. He had had a couple of games - he started the season late because he had problems getting his work permit, so really I inherited a person who didn't have many games behind him. But it was an opportunity for me to give him another opportunity and as you saw, he took it absolutely brilliantly. No doubt he will go on holiday thinking I couldn't spot a footballer if he bit me on the nose."
West Ham 0-3 Sunderland
West Ham caretaker Kevin Keen: "I think my audition for the job started as soon as I got it. I have conducted myself well since then and I hope they take that into account. I love the club. I played for them for nine years. It's in my blood. I feel I can really take the club on and contribute. If you ask the players if they want me to take the job, I think you'd get an affirmative answer from the majority of the players."
Steve Bruce: "Let's all enjoy the next week or so but after that it`s back to work and the question is can we improve again? That's what we`ve got to try and achieve - getting the squad bigger and better."
