The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS -

Putting the pub­lic and pri­vate lives of play­ers un­der the spot­light


Po­si­tion: Mid­fielder Date of Birth: 30/08/1990 Mar­i­tal Sta­tus: Sin­gle. Girl­friend: In­die Former Clubs: West Brom, Shrews­bury (loan), Chel­tenham (loan), Tran­mere, Torquay (loan) Car you bought? Mercedes ML 250, it’s all right. I like 4x4s, it’s bet­ter than the C Class I had. CD you bought? I think it’d be Craig David, he’s my guilty plea­sure. Goal you scored? My last game for Torquay against Brad­ford. It bob­bled up nicely on the edge of the box and I stuck it in the cor­ner. Time you were sent off? Against Notts County two years ago for Tran­mere. We ended up win­ning 1-0 and I kicked some­one off the ball, I thought I’d got away with it but the ref saw me. In­jury? I did my me­dial lig­a­ments in my left knee ear­lier this sea­son. It wasn’t too bad – I was out for about five weeks. Tro­phy won? Academy player of the year at West Brom in 2007. I don’t think I’ve won any­thing since then!



Tea or Cof­fee? Cof­fee, it’s just stronger and gives you more en­ergy. Beans on toast or pasta? Pasta’s a bit bor­ing, so beans on toast. You can put ketchup on it and I have ketchup on ev­ery­thing. Caribbean with the mis­sus or Ma­galuf with the lads? I’ll say Caribbean with the mis­sus – I’ll be in trou­ble oth­er­wise. Eas­ten­ders or Cor­rie? Eas­ten­ders. Be­ing a south­erner, it’s closer to home. Big Brother or XFactor? X-Fac­tor, I’m a big fan. Me­gan Fox or Jes­sica Alba?

Me­gan Fox.


Who did you sup­port as a boy? Ar­se­nal, but I only went to High­bury once. I al­ways looked up to Ian Wright and Pa­trick Vieira. Who is the best player you have played with? Kevin Phillips at West Brom. I only played with him in pre-sea­son but he was al­ways one step ahead of ev­ery­one. Who is the loud­est man­ager you have played un­der? Prob­a­bly Mark Yates at Chel­tenham. He’s never fright­ened to have a word. What three words best de­scribe you? Loyal, com­mit­ted and joker. Which news­pa­per do you read? The Sun, my mum al­ways bought it. Which TV foot­ball pun­dit makes you cringe? Mark Lawren­son. He seems really ar­ro­gant. And who do you really lis­ten to? Gary Neville and Jamie Red­knapp. They both know their stuff. Do you have any su­per­sti­tions? I al­ways put my right shin­pad and boot on first and then I stick my shirt on last. What are your hob­bies? Plays­ta­tion. I’m a big FIFA man. A few of the lads play me but I’m the best. Ju­lian Kelly and Krys­tian Pearce try but they just don’t com­pare. Which five peo­ple would you in­vite round for din­ner? David Beck­ham, Ian Wright, Pa­trick Vieira, Lee Evans and Barack Obama. The first three are my foot­balling idols, Lee would bring some ban­ter, and Obama could talk about some pol­i­tics.


Who is the worst dressed player at the club? Enoch Showunmi. Some of the stuff he wears is aw­ful.
