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.
