Interviewer: If there was an act you were forced to send a Valentine’s card to, who would it be?
Noel: An act… Liam Gallagher’s a pretty good act to give a Valentine’s card to, I think.
Interviewer: I think that’s frowned upon by many cultures, Noel, but I admire you for your pluck.
Noel: … It’s not a Mancunian culture, but… well… I’m in London now, aren’t I?
Noel about Liam: ‘I’ve kind of learnt that instead of arguing stuff out with him and ending up in a fight, I work on his psychology and he’s completely freaked out by me now. He’s actually frightened to death of me. I can read him and I can fucking play him like a slightly disused arcade game. I can make him make decisions that he thinks are his but really they’re mine. Without fighting. It’s an art I’ve learned’.
