Our weekly collection of the most ridiculous sporting quotes takes in Bradley Wiggins, Carl Froch and John Terry...

" If I was going to snap, I would have snapped long before."
Let's see how many players will try and make John Terry lose it this season after this comment

"I don't know whether Chisora is mentally ill or unstable."
Carl Froch questions Dereck Chisora's state of mind

"I think by round four you will be blowing it out of your backside."
Unstable or not, Del Boy is certainly deluded - as David Haye claimed an easy win on Saturday night

"I say they're just f*****g w*****s. I cannot be doing with people like that." Bradley Wiggins takes offence to those who suggest the leading lights in cycling must be on drugs

"If I felt I had to take drugs, I would rather stop tomorrow and work in Tesco stacking shelves."
Looks like Wiggins never really had any aspiration to be a doctor or a lawyer

"I want to see a bit of mongrel."
Australia may boast cricket pedigree, but coach Mickey Arthur wants a bit more fight from his side

"If you want loyalty get a Froome dog...a quality value..although being taken advantage of by others!"
A Froome dog clearly has plenty of mongrel in him, but his girlfriend Michelle Cound feels he should be able to play more
