GOALKEEPERI

Marek Stech – Yeovil Town I played with him at Yeovil and he is a keeper who has the po­ten­tial to do re­ally well – I was re­ally im­pressed with him. He’s also a very funny lad. He has a funny ac­cent which makes a lot of the lads laugh but there is no doubt about his talent.

DE­FEND­ERS

Dale Tonge – Torquay United He’s at Torquay now but I was with him at Rother­ham and in our last sea­son to­gether we linked up re­ally well down the right. He’s pri­mar­ily a right back but can play any­where across de­fence. He used to just give me the ball and sit back and cover me, it was great as I never had to run back. Pablo Mills – Bury Pablo’s an­other I played with at Rother­ham who was a great talent at the back. He can play in mid­field too and is a great player on the ball. He’s a great guy to have around and a re­ally good leader of the team. Leon John­son – Wy­combe Wan­der­ers He’s mainly in the team be­cause he is the best look­ing lad to have ever played a foot­ball game – well that’s his claim. But I’d say I’m the best look­ing player, of course. He’s a re­ally good team player and a good laugh.

RIGHT MIDFIELDI

Filipe Mo­rais – Steve­nage The first 20 min­utes of the game he would be at Cham­pi­ons League level and then af­ter 20 min­utes you won’t see him again! He has also got one of the best set of tricks in the game, up there with Ronald­inho. It’s just that he goes miss­ing af­ter 20 min­utes...

CEN­TRE MIDFIELDI

Do­minic Blizzard – Ply­mouth Ar­gyle We live to­gether and travel into train­ing to­gether. He’s the best player I have ever played with – he’ll like me for say- ing that. In all se­ri­ous­ness, since he has come back into the Ply­mouth team he has proved what a player he is and he’s great to have in the mid­field.

CEN­TRE MID­FIELD

Yous­souf Mu­lumbu – West Brom I played with him when I was at West Brom and he had a bad case of short­man syn­drome. He was this ag­gres­sive Con­golese kid who would go around har­ry­ing you in mid­field. He is just so pow­er­ful though and great to have in front of the back four. Danny Rose – Ox­ford United We’re both from Bris­tol, and I’ve played with him since I was 10 years old al­though we have never played a Foot­ball League game to­gether. He is just a qual­ity player, he started out at Manch­ester United and I still see him quite a lot and watch out for his progress.

LEFT MIDFIELDI

Jerome Thomas – Crys­tal Palace We played to­gether at West Brom and he was some­one who re­ally im­pressed me. He has strug­gled a bit with in­juries, but with his abil­ity he should be a big­ger name in the Pre­mier league than he is.

STRIK­ERS

Lee Thorpe – Re­tired He was a sea­soned vet­eran when we were both at Torquay, he had played so many league games and was such an ex­pe­ri­enced player. I was on loan there at the time, just 17, and he would take the cen­tre half out with an aerial chal­lenge to give me space. He was a re­ally nice guy. Akos Buzsaky – Ferenc­varos I played with him at Ply­mouth. When I had first signed as a pro­fes­sional, this guy showed me a level of foot­ball I had not seen be­fore. His skills and his tech­nique and the things he did re­ally im­pressed me. He went on to play in the Pre­mier League with QPR, which was well de­served.
