The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS -

Putting the pub­lic and pri­vate lives of play­ers un­der the spot­light


Po­si­tion: De­fender Date of Birth: 18/05/1984 Mar­i­tal Sta­tus: Been go­ing out with my girl­friend Neve for nearly five years Former Clubs: Wim­ble­don Car you bought? A black Audi A3. CD you bought? Teenage Icon by The Vac­cines. Goal you scored? scored a free-kick against Wal­sall last sea­son. Their goal­keeper had just been sent off so it was their right back in goal, but I don’t think the keeper would have saved it ei­ther! Time you were sent off? Swin­don away this year for an al­leged el­bow. In­jury? Four years ago when I strained my an­kle lig­a­ments and I was out for about a month. Tro­phy won? The League Two ti­tle with the Dons in 2008.



Tea or Cof­fee? I hate them both. Beans on toast or pasta? Pasta. It’s ei­ther that or a bit of scram­bled egg or chicken pre-match. Caribbean with the mis­sus or Ma­galuf with the lads? Caribbean with the mis­sus. I’m get­ting old now so it’s time I started set­tling down. Eas­ten­ders or Cor­rie? I don’t really watch ei­ther. Big Brother or X Fac­tor? My mis­sus watches Big Brother so I end up watch­ing it oc­ca­sion­ally. Me­gan Fox or Jes­sica Alba? I’d prob­a­bly go with Jes­sica Alba. Who did you sup­port as a boy? I was a bit of a glory hunter. It was Liver­pool but that changed to Man United when they started get­ting good, in about 91. And from then on, it de­pended on my dad. I fol­lowed Palace, Brent­ford and Ful­ham. Who is the best player you have played with? I played with Didi Ha­mann to­wards the


end of his ca­reer. And Keith An­drews was bril­liant for a sea­son with us in League Two be­fore he moved to Black­burn. Who is the loud­est man­ager you have played un­der? Martin Allen. He’s a lot more sen­si­ble than peo­ple give him credit for but he is very sur­real. He’d put dance mu­sic on in the dress­ing room in­stead of do­ing a warm-down. He can lose his tem­per quite eas­ily and he lets you know when you’re not pleas­ing him. What three words best de­scribe you? Hon­est, re­li­able and solid. Which news­pa­per do you read? I don’t really read a pa­per be­cause it’s all on­line. Which TV foot­ball pun­dit makes you cringe? Mark Lawren­son. He says some weird stuff. And who do you really lis­ten to? Gary Neville speaks a lot of sense, as long as you can ig­nore the ac­cent. Do you have any su­per­sti­tions? I went through a stage of not clean­ing my boots when I was younger, but it was just an ex­cuse to get out of clean­ing them! What are your hob­bies out­side of foot­ball? I’m quite into my golf. Which five peo­ple would you in­vite round for a din­ner party? Je­sus, be­cause I’d like to hear what he’s got to say. Elvis, be­cause I’ve al­ways re­spected his mu­sic and I’m sure he’d have a few good sto­ries. I like Johnny Cash and I’ve got a lot of his records so I’d have him too. I need some­one funny so I’d in­vite Micky Flana­gan. And then I’d have Mila Ku­nis just to make it a lit­tle bit more at­trac­tive.


Who is the worst dressed player at the club? There are quite a few con­tenders. Prob­a­bly Ian McLough­lin. He’s about six foot four but he thinks he’s a size medium.
