Team mates

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS -

Best mate at the club? Barry Fuller. It all started when we were on the verge of hav­ing a fight. He started shout­ing at me af­ter con­ced­ing a goal against Ac­cring­ton and didn’t back down. I re­spected him for that, even though he knew I would break him! We’ve been mates ever since. Last to buy din­ner? Mark Phillips. He’s part of my car school with Ade Azeez and he’s never of­fered to buy me any­thing when we stop off for petrol. At least Ade has bought me a Lu­cozade. The Fifa king? I’m the king, but there are a lot of whip­pets vy­ing for my ti­tle. Props has to go out to Craig Tan­ner, Ade Azeez and Joe McDon­nell – I’m think­ing of set­ting up a mini-league for them to see who gets to play me. I have three con­trol pads all with dif­fer­ent colours; the blue one is the one I use when I’m a bit wor­ried and I’ve never used it. Worst dressed? Jake Good­man. He’s one of those guys you don’t even have to speak to about how badly he’s dressed. You both know how bad it is and you both ac­knowl­edge it but never say any­thing. The dress­ing room DJ? Mark Phillips is known as DJ Phillo but he’s the worst DJ I’ve ever heard. You would ex­pect him to at least have his own CDs for the car. In­stead we just lis­ten to the ra­dio. Our real DJ is the physio, Stu­art Dou­glas. The most skil­ful? Craig Tan­ner calls him­self ‘the sup­plier’ but he hasn’t sup­plied me with any­thing all sea­son. He’s the best drib­bler at the club though, so I’ll give it to him. Late for train­ing? Me. I’m not even go­ing to of­fer any ex­cuses – although I do have five kids! They have to tell me to ar­rive at places an hour early be­cause I’m that bad. Teacher’s pet? James Shea. He’s the nicest guy you would ever meet and he gets along with ev­ery­one. Best cook? I make a mean chicken dish, but of the newage cooks I’d go with Ge­orge Fran­comb. He rus­tles up a lot of fish. First on the dance­floor? Deji Oshi­laja thinks he can bust a se­ri­ous move. He calls it ‘the wave’. I’m not too sure about it but it’s dif­fer­ent. Most likely to dis­grace them­selves at the Christ­mas party? Jake Reeves. He showed me some videos of his past in­dis­cre­tions and if he did that at our Christ­mas party he would be get­ting some se­ri­ous beat­ings. I’m sure he has po­ten­tial to be prob­lem­atic. The worst tat­too? Ge­orge Fran­comb. He has his sur­name across his fore­arm. What’s that for? Just in case he for­gets it? Never puts their phone down? Me, I can’t stay away from so­cial me­dia. Even if I have a num­ber two, I’d prob­a­bly share it with my fol­low­ers! The boss has had to ban phones in the chang­ing room oth­er­wise we wouldn’t talk to each other. Go­ing to make the best manager? I’d be the best but I don’t want to do it! I’d make the lads call me the Spe­cial One. Barry Fuller has the at­tributes. He trains just how he plays.
