THE LAST...

Car you bought? A black Audi TT five years ago and I still drive it now. CD you bought? Drake’s last al­bum six months ago. Goal you scored? A penalty against Port Vale for Da­gen­ham. We were 2-0 down and I put it to the keeper’s right but then we lost 3-2 Time you were sent off? For As­ton Villa re­serves against Read­ing about five years ago. That has been my only red. In­jury? I’m in­jured now. I had a knee op­er­a­tion eight weeks ago. I’m two weeks from full fit­ness. Tro­phy won? A League Two win­ners medal with Brent­ford four years ago. I was on loan from As­ton and it was great to come in for the last 15 games or so.

THE JURY’S OUT:

Tea or Cof­fee? Nei­ther – only wa­ter. Beans on toast or pasta? Pasta. It’s my pre-match meal. Caribbean with the mis­sus or Ma­galuf with the lads? Caribbean. I pre­fer a chilled out hol­i­day af­ter a hard sea­son. Easten­ders or Cor­rie? I’m a Lon­don lad so Easten­ders. Al­though Lucinda does tend to watch Cor­rie a lot. Big Brother or XFac­tor? Big Brother, be­cause it’s good, easy watch­ing. Me­gan Fox or Jessica Alba? That’s a tough one. Jessica Alba, be­cause she has tanned skin.

TIME ADDED ON:

Who did you sup­port as a boy? Manch­ester United. My Christ­mas pres- ent was go­ing up to Old Traf­ford on the train with my dad Ge­of­frey. Who is the best player you have played with? Gary Cahill. He had pace, ex­pe­ri­ence, skill. I al­ways knew he’d go all the way. Who is the loud­est man­ager you have played un­der? Wayne Bur­nett at Da­gen­ham. He is very pas­sion­ate, if you were do­ing badly he let you know. What three words best de­scribe you? Pas­sion­ate, thoughtful and de­voted. Which news­pa­per do you read? Daily Mail. They cover all sorts of things. Which TV football pun­dit makes you cringe? John Barnes. For such a great player he comes out with things that don’t make much sense And who do you re­ally lis­ten to? Jamie Red­knapp and Gary Neville. Both bril­liant play­ers and they know what they are talk­ing about. Do you have any su­per­sti­tions? If I have a good game, I won’t clean my boots so the same mud is on them next game. What are your hob­bies? The cin­ema. I’m also get­ting in­ter­ested in prop­erty de­vel­op­ment. Which five peo­ple would you in­vite round for din­ner? David Beck­ham, aside from my dad he is my big­gest hero. Rus­sell Brand as he’s a ge­nius and a great co­me­dian. Al­bert Ein­stein is an­other ge­nius you could learn a lot from. Michael Jor­dan, one of the big­gest stars in the world and David At­ten­bor­ough would add some­thing to the con­ver­sa­tion.

AND FI­NALLY...

Who is the worst dressed player at the club? He’s not here any more but Mark Ar­ber has got no dress sense. He thinks he looks good but he looks ter­ri­ble!
