WHAT THEY SAID
Slaven Bilic: "Everything I do, whether before a game or half-time, I do it deliberately.
"Even if I want to smash a table a little bit or whatever, I do it with a plan. Sometimes they are calm, sometimes they are less calm. But that's the way I do it. So yes, I've had my moments.
"How many tables have I got through? We have to go to IKEA!"
David Moyes: "I'm definitely hurting and I'm certainly not enjoying the feeling of being down here. But part of football management is that you don't always get it good.
"I've had some really good times and at the moment, it's sore. I don't enjoy losing every Saturday and going home to the family."
