Those words will sound in my head the rest of his life. I think my place will be on the weaker man, he would not be able to withstand all. It felt as though my head was put on the guillotine and lowered the hook that holds the blade at a height. All my relatives were crying at the time - and a wife, mother and father, and even friends. Particularly badly affected by the words Houllier on my grandfather, who almost died from the pain caused by his family.
