The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS -

Putting the pub­lic and pri­vate lives of play­ers un­der the spot­light


Po­si­tion: For­ward Date of Birth: 12/01/1988 Mar­i­tal Sta­tus: Sin­gle Former Clubs: Crys­tal Palace, Old­ham (loan), Mother­well (loan), Mill­wall, Brent­ford, Rother­ham Car you bought? I’m buy­ing a car this week – a Mercedes. It’s a nice car. CD you bought? I haven’t bought a CD in years. I’d say Kanye West. Goal you scored? Against Portsmouth I think. It was just a cross, it fell to me and I put it in. Time you were sent off? I’ve never been sent off. In­jury? I broke my wrist in 2010, but it wasn’t too se­ri­ous. Tro­phy won? I have a play-off medal with Mill­wall when we got pro­moted in 2010. The year be­fore we were run­ners-up so it was ex­tra spe­cial.



Tea or Cof­fee? I don’t drink ei­ther of them of­ten but I had a cof­fee re­cently. Beans on toast or pasta? They’re both ter­ri­ble – pasta if I had to choose. Caribbean with the mis­sus or Ma­galuf with the lads? Caribbean with the mis­sus, ev­ery time. Eas­ten­ders or Cor­rie? Again they’re both ter­ri­ble. Let’s say Cor­rie. Big Brother or X Fac­tor? Big Brother. I find it a bit cringe­wor­thy watch­ing peo­ple sing. Me­gan Fox or Jes­sica Alba? Me­gan Fox.


Who did you sup­port as a boy? Liver­pool. I al­ways used to like Rob­bie Fowler and Steve McMana­man. Who is the best player you have played with? Andy John­son when he was at Crys­tal Palace and they were in the Pre­mier League. He was very good at us­ing his pace and scor­ing. Who is the loud­est man­ager you have played un­der? Steve Evans at Rother­ham. That’s the way he gets his points across. What three words best de­scribe you? Re­laxed, se­ri­ous... jokey. Which news­pa­per do you read? I don’t really read news­pa­pers, I’d prob­a­bly lis­ten to Sky News. Which TV foot­ball pun­dit makes you cringe? On The Foot­ball League Show, Leroy Rose­nior says things that that make me think: “I’m not sure if he knows what he’s talk­ing about.” And who do you really lis­ten to? Ob­vi­ously Gary Neville on Sky Sports, but any­one who is hon­est and says their hon­est opin­ion and has played the game at the high­est level really. He’s a good ex­am­ple. An­other is Alan Shearer – I don’t mind lis­ten­ing to him. Do you have any su­per­sti­tions? No. I have a rou­tine be­fore games, not a rit­ual. If I didn’t do it I wouldn’t be wor­ried. What are your hob­bies? I like films and I’m quite in­ter­ested in fash­ion. I’ve got a few friends who make films so I fol­low what they do. Which five peo­ple would you in­vite round for a din­ner party? Floyd May­weather, he’d pro­vide some en­ter­tain­ment. Ge­orge Clooney, I’d in­vite him see what he’s got to say. Mike Tyson would be in­ter­est­ing. For the younger gen­er­a­tion a guy called A$AP Rocky, he’s a new rap­per, and for the fifth per­son, Jay-Z.


Who is the worst dressed player at the club? Marc Pugh. He’s got a non-ex­is­tant dress sense.
