Team mates

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS -

Best mate at the club? The goal­keep­ers’ union at Brent­ford is very tight, so Jack Bon­ham and David But­ton. There are lit­tle cliques in ev­ery dress­ing room and we’ve def­i­nitely got one in ours. They’ve got their own sense of hu­mour, they can be a lit­tle odd if I’m hon­est, so I’m more like the older brother of the group. Last to buy din­ner? Me, ac­cord­ing to most of the lads, but I think that’s harsh. I play on it a lit­tle bit, but deep down I’m gen­er­ous! Worst dressed? Nick Proschwitz has a pretty dodgy dress sense. He loves a la­bel and comes out with some out­ra­geous stuff some­times – it’s a bit of a ropey Euro­pean style. But since we made the Cham­pi­onship ev­ery­one has def­i­nitely stepped up their game. The dress­ing room DJ? We take it in turns, but you can al­ways iden­tify who it is that’s put the tunes on. An­dre Gray likes pop and rap and things like that, or at the other end of the scale is Jonathan Dou­glas who is a bit mel­lower. I def­i­nitely pre­fer it when Dougie gets his way! The most skil­ful? Alex Pritchard is very good, as is Jota. They’ve both got tricks but it’s more the speed at which they do it. They are both small lads with low cen­tres of grav­ity, and the speed at which they move the ball is amaz­ing. Jots has also scored some crack­ing goals al­ready this sea­son and re­ally ex­cites the fans. Late for train­ing? Tommy Smith will AL­WAYS get into the train­ing ground with about two min­utes to spare. We give him a bit of stick about it, as he clearly doesn’t want to be at the train­ing ground any longer than he needs to. But no-one is too bad re­ally. Gen­er­ally we have quite a good cul­ture for that at the club. Teacher’s pet? Harry For­rester re­ally stood out be­fore he moved to Don­caster. Tony Craig acts as our spokesper­son though; if we ever need any­thing said to the staff, it’s through him. He’s the bridge be­tween the play­ers and the man­age­ment. Best cook? No-one can cook! Most of them are sin­gle lads, prob­a­bly hav­ing ce­real ev­ery night. First on the dance­floor? Moses Odubajo has got a lot of moves. He re­ally stands out when he dances. We had a lit­tle trip abroad re­cently and he was show­ing some po­ten­tial on the dance­floor. Worst tat­too? Jack Bon­ham. His brother’s a tat­too artist and es­sen­tially Jack let him prac­tise on him. He’s got aw­ful tat­toos all over the place, es­pe­cially on his thighs. I don’t even know what they are. Par­tial to a sunbed? Sam Saun­ders is al­ways un­usu­ally bronzed. He gets a bit of stick for it, but he em­braces it. He’s a good look­ing kid who dresses well and that’s what he’s about. He loves get­ting the stick re­ally. Go­ing to make the best manager? Tony Craig or maybe Kevin O’Con­nor, who has al­ready made the step to­wards coach­ing. They are level-headed, emo­tion­ally in­tel­li­gent and love foot­ball more than any­thing.
