"It was a fantastic night - in fact it was one of the best nights of my career. It wasn't easy for me to play after a few bad games but the fans were brilliant. The lads were fantastic as well. Everyone gave me confidence and they didn't let me down. There is something special about this club and the boss told me before the game that I don't yet know or understand how special our fans are. He told me they would make sure I wasn't walking alone and I saw that for myself. It was so emotional.
The boss said to me 'I know you don't really want to play and you want to rest, but if you have a car accident then the sooner you get back into the car the better'.
I saw Salif Diao after the game and he had a red shirt on under his top which said 'Jerzy - You'll Never Walk Alone'. I've never known anything like that before. It's fantastic."
Dudek on the reception he got against Ipswich on 04.12.2002.
"He has been brilliant, absolutely sensational. People talk about him being the best since Clemence and I wouldn't disagree. He is certainly the best I have seen in a long, long time at Liverpool. I was surprised when they sold Westerveld but Dudek has been a great signing. The thing I like about him is the alertness he shows. He stops things before they happen by coming out for crosses and taking control of his area. He has been first class."
Roy Evans May 2002
"He's the loudest snorer you'll ever hear. It's unbelievable. We were away at Southampton and I think someone sleeping in Newcastle complained about the noise. What you see is what you get with Jerzy though. He's a great man and a brilliant professional."
Chris Kirkland on Dudek
"I still have two years left on my contract so yes I will stay at Liverpool. But I admit that there has been a lot of speculations on this issue, but the coach must buy another goalkeeper. I am not afraid that the new goalkeeper will make problems for me. Every year it is difficult to be in the line-up and it will be the same next season."
Jerzy Dudek in June 2005 on Jose Reina's arrival
"Before the penalties, Carra came up to me like he was crazy - as always! He said: "Jerzy, Jerzy - remember Bruce (Grobbelaar). He did crazy things to put them off and you have to do the same".
Liverpool hero Jerzy Dudek reveals the 'wobbly legs' in Istanbul
"He did a much better job than I did. He looked like a starfish with jelly legs to me but it worked."
Grobbelaar on Dudek's tactics in Istanbul
"My brother phoned me in the morning and said: 'Have you seen it on TV again?' "I said no, I hadn't, and he said you need to see it; the rebound, the second Shevchenko shot was the 'Hand of God' because, from nowhere, came your hand to save the goal.
"I said I didn't know how I did it."
Dudek on his miracle save from Schevchenko
"We are all disappointed for Jerzy. He was distraught in the dressing room afterwards and apologised to us all. I think it's hurting the lads even more because he's such a nice fella as well as being a top class goalkeeper."
Jerzy Dudek had a particular horror show against Manchester United at Anfield on 1 December 2002 giftwrapping a goal for Diego Forlan. Jamie Carragher, was very sympathetic towards his teammate.
