Team mates

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS - Dean Lew­ing­ton Mil­ton Keynes Dons de­fender

Best mate at club? Dave Martin. I’ve known him since we were 13 play­ing in the youth teams and we’ve al­ways got on well. He moved away for a while but we kept in con­tact, so since he’s been back it’s nice to have some­one from your youth around. Last to buy din­ner? Tom Flana­gan al­ways some­how dis­ap­pears when it’s time to pay. Danny Green is an­other one who shies away if he can. The FIFA king? I don’t play it my­self but I be­lieve Dele Alli is one of the bet­ter play­ers and Ge­orge Bal­dock is up there. It tends to be the young guys living away from home who play a lot, but we’ve got a young squad so there is a bit of com­pe­ti­tion. Worst dressed? Dave Martin, be­cause when he was younger he weighed more than he does now but his clothes haven’t changed, so they’re al­ways a bit baggy and dated. Dress­ing room DJ? This year it’s Samir Carruthers but I don’t know why be­cause his mu­sic is ter­ri­ble, though the young guys like it. I think he’s the only one with the code for the speaker sys­tem! I don’t even know what it is – I would go for more rock or indie but there’s not many who like it, so I get out-voted. The most skil­ful? Dele Alli can look a bit awk­ward be­cause he’s so tall but he’s very skil­ful and does it out on the pitch as well. He says he’s up to about 25 nut­megs this sea­son. He tries it on in train­ing but that can cost him when it doesn’t go down too well with some of the older play­ers. Dele has his lit­tle scores that he keeps. Late for train­ing? Antony Kay, though to be fair he does come in from up north by train so he de­pends on them run­ning on time, which isn’t of­ten. He does man­age to just sneak in, but we have a fines sys­tem and he’s pay­ing quite a bit to­wards team nights out. Teacher’s pet? Dele Alli, with­out a doubt. He was a young lad com­ing through when the gaffer joined and now he’s the teacher’s pet for ob­vi­ous rea­sons be­cause he’s one of the best play­ers at the club. Worst cook? Kyle McFadzean can’t even do toast! Some of the guys have had to cook for him be­cause he’s a bit of a cave­man. Most likely to dis­grace them­selves at the Christ­mas party? Tom Flana­gan is a li­a­bil­ity. We’ve got a good group here so it’s usu­ally a de­cent night out, but Tom will al­ways get him­self into some sort of trou­ble or on an adventure. He strug­gles with his beer so gets a bit dizzy. The worst tat­too? Dave Martin has got two solid black dragons on his back. Ac­tu­ally they are more like li­on­scum-dragons sim­i­lar to the Peu­geot

crest. Never puts their phone down? Daniel Pow­ell likes his phone. He’s just had a baby so is of­ten on FaceTime with his fam­ily. Go­ing to make the best manager? Dar­ren Pot­ter re­ally stud­ies the game and has got his UEFA B li­cence. He’ll make a good manager – he’s a bit quiet so he might need an ag­gres­sive num­ber two but I think he’d be quite cre­ative.
