The way we play at Liverpool is with high-intensity football, pressing high up the pitch, winning the ball back quickly, and counter-pressing.

Kevin A. Ford
Between 2007 and 2016, I had a large white rabbit called WillyFred. I was happiest pressing my ear to his fur and hearing his heart beat.
Toyah Willcox
I am in the process of trying to decide whether I can make a substantive and productive contribution to the policy-making process. I was always there because I wanted to work on the pressing issues of the day – I’m interested in energy, I’m interested in the climate bill and technology policy.

The Citizen’s Petition reflects Vermont’s spirit of pragmatism and across-the-board cooperation. I applaud the ‘Campaign to Fix the Debt’ for calling attention to one of the country’s most pressing problems, our ballooning national debt, and for urging policymakers to find practical solutions.
Peter Welch
President Obama believes that income inequality is one of the most pressing matters facing the nation. If we are going to be a country that provides ladders of opportunity and believes in a thriving middle class, then we have to raise the minimum wage.

But most of these are growing despite, not because of, help from governments.
Geoff Mulgan
You’ve got to try to find ways to dominate in any way – it ain’t about getting sacks, it’s about making the big plays. If that’s pressing the quarterback, making them throw a pick – whatever you’ve got to do to try to dominate the game.
Aaron Donald
There was a disc and two bone spurs pressing on my spinal cord. If anyone’s had spinal cord problems or disc injuries in their neck, they’d understand what I went through.

If you think dealing with issues like worthiness and authenticity and vulnerability are not worthwhile because there are more pressing issues, like the bottom line or attendance or standardized test scores, you are sadly, sadly mistaken. It underpins everything.
Brene Brown
I hear that Brooke Ashley is also pressing charges. I don’t know how she can prove anything. How can they prove anything, whether it’s true or not, that I’m the one that infected her?
Marc Wallice
You want the book to be special, and they are not always going to be special, but at least you want that to be the ambition. So the only way that happens is if you are not pressing to write a book.
Michael Lewis

Katharine Viner
I have no wish to go back to being frustrated by a character. It’s really just part of being on an ongoing series. You’re constantly hoping the next episode you get, something will happen for you. You’re on the edge of your seat all the time, pressing your hands together and hoping that something cool will turn up.
Tom Payne
As a long-termist, I acknowledge there are more pressing causes than the abolition of private property.
Ash Sarkar
There is so much interaction in a football match: between you and your team-mates and how you support each other, work for each other, make runs. But I also enjoy the other aspect: the pressing and how people work so hard to recover the ball.
Roy Hodgson

Joichi Ito
I try to play in one way all my career and here, with high pressing, but it is different in England. Many times the ball is more in the air than the grass, and I have to adapt.
Pep Guardiola
The role of a goalkeeper in Pep’s team is like the 11th outfield player on the pitch, in terms of the build-up, the pressing. I think it’s more difficult. There is a bigger responsibility because you can’t afford to make any mistakes. If you do, it probably ends in an opposition goal.
With a more intimate understanding of our world, we can begin to eradicate some of our most pressing challenges – even hunger and the availability of drinkable water.
Tae Yoo

A number of non-banking finance companies have entered the rural microcredit market. Many microcredit agencies have been charging interest rates not very dissimilar to those charged by moneylenders. Borrowing then becomes more to meet pressing consumption needs, rather than for farming or small-scale enterprises.
M. S. Swaminathan
At first sight experience seems to bury us under a flood of external objects, pressing upon us with a sharp and importunate reality, calling us out of ourselves in a thousand forms of action.

Clare Short
Hollywood is a boys’ club, and that’s something I thought was a stereotype – and it’s not. That really shocked me. Still shocks me. Everyone’s helping their buddies out and pressing their buddies and playing tennis with their buddies and making movies with their buddies, and that grosses me out.
Emily Ratajkowski
I’ve embraced comfortable, but still chic, footwear. I don’t know who I was wearing heels for – as much as I love the way they make my legs look and the power I feel when I choose to wear them – but I can do a longer and more pressing day if I’m in a shoe I can walk in.
Catherine Reitman
United are capable of setting up a low block and making it difficult, but they’re also capable of coming out and pressing high.

Tiffani Thiessen
When I look at the chaotic and volatile debate right now, both in Germany and around the world, my impression and concern is that the daily barrage of proposals and political statements is making markets and consumers even more nervous. Still, Brussels is pressing for a joint European approach.
Peer Steinbruck
You’ve got two veins; one carries blood directly to the body, one carries blood to the heart. That tumor was growing and was pressing on that vein. That vein was getting skinnier and skinnier.
James Conner
I want the ball for 90 minutes. When I don’t have the ball, I go high pressing because I want the ball.
Pep Guardiola
I’m all for greater co-operation between Europe and America because I think that sometimes we’ve missed out on the benefits that transatlantic trade could give both continents, and I’ve been pressing this since 1997.
Gordon Brown
I think some people like me because I’m different. I don’t think like everybody else. People are so tied up in the worst parts of technology these days. They live a life pressing buttons. They don’t use their imaginations.
Iris Apfel
Making films can be very lonely, and that’s the part I don’t like. I don’t want to feel like I’m pressing ‘pause’ on my personal life to make a movie. I want to feel like I’m still creating relationships and things are moving forward.
Jessica Chastain
In the stadium when you’re playing, you feel the negative vibe going around for not playing the ball forward, or for not pressing.

Assessing any possible threat is one thing, but pressing into a full investigation without facts of a crime or national security threat violates standard procedure.
Dan Bongino
House and Senate Republicans are now united in adopting earmark bans. We hope President Obama will follow through on his support for an earmark ban by pressing Democratic leaders to join House and Senate Republicans in taking this critical step to restore public trust.
John Boehner
There is no sense in meddling with the extinction of polar bears, not when so many more pressing human problems await. Until there’s ironclad proof of how and why extinction works, and how much evil we’ve done to hasten it along, I’m going to save my emotional anguish for dying and suffering members of my own species.
S.E. Cupp
The political solutions to the refugee crisis may be complex, but that does not mean we should abandon our humanity. We should not close our hearts, retreat behind walls, real or imagined, or ignore the pressing moral imperative to provide assistance and sanctuary for some of the world’s most desperate people.
Katharine Viner
My confidence has been really building since my time at Espanyol. The two coaches are actually very similar on the pressing side of the game. They spend a lot of time on that side of it, and it’s a lot of hard work.
Philippe Coutinho
The Japanese people, though largely united in recognizing the threat of global warming and rising sea levels, are likely to face hurdles in reforming their energy policy, including some resistance from young people who say the nation faces more pressing problems, like the economy.

While certainly no pressing threat to Gordon Lightfoot, I knew it was simply a matter of time until I was going to be a star.
Dan Hill
Codes and signals are as important as explicit messages, and the two are linked. The bore pressing someone to tell them ‘where they’re really from’ will see themselves as different to the aggressive stranger barking at someone to ‘get back to their own country,’ but the subconscious, if not explicit, message is the same.
Dawn Foster
Part of the western movement is this desire that we, Americans, have to keep pressing on.
Beau Bridges
I think shows being sent out this way – pressing a button and 10 episodes can go out to the U.S.A., and the U.K. and Germany, it’s very cool.
Jeffrey Tambor
When Ralf Rangnick was in charge, you could see he was out to force a pressing game.
Dietmar Hopp
