Team mates

Best mate at the club? I get on with ev­ery­one – we have a good group of lads. If I had to choose any­one it would be James Collins. He’s my room­mate so I spend the most time with him. Last to buy din­ner? We had din­ner last week and there were six of us. We asked the waiter to put all of our cards in a hat and pick one – who­ever it was had to pay. It ended up be­ing Tyrone Bar­nett and he had to spend about £100. The Fifa king? We don’t re­ally play Fifa but I guess I could say Mark Hal­stead be­cause he is pretty good at play­ing those games. Most of us would rather play Call of Duty – we are all just big kids. Worst dressed? I’m go­ing to have to say Matt Too­tle. It’s Oc­to­ber, it’s freez­ing and he came in the other day wear­ing grey shorts, a grey hoodie and flip-flops. He has had some stick from the lads. Dress­ing room DJ? Tyrone Bar­nett, as he plays a mix­ture of mu­sic like RnB and House. It is good, to be fair. Most skil­ful? Jor­dan Clark. He is a small lad but he has fast feet. He is hard to catch once he gets go­ing down the pitch. He has great feet and is fan­tas­tic to watch. Late for train­ing? Jer­maine Gran­di­son is al­ways late... Teacher’s pet? Abu Ogogo as he just doesn’t seem to put a foot wrong. The gaffer (Micky Mel­lon) re­ally likes him. He is a great lad and we all like him but he can­not put a foot out of place. Worst cook? I think there are a few who are rub­bish. Dar­ren McKnight is ter­ri­ble. He’s only a young boy and doesn’t know what he’s do­ing. Pasta and pesto is all he knows, he makes it all the time. First on the dance­floor? It would have to be Jor­dan Clark and Scott Ver­non. When we have a night out, we will all have a few drinks – you have a look up and those two will be on the dance floor be­fore you know it. Most likely to dis­grace them­selves at the Christ­mas party? Def­i­nitely James Collins, be­cause of last year. We were out on a Sun­day in fancy dress and he was ar­gu­ing with a cou­ple of Birm­ing­ham play­ers. He then ended up some­how fall­ing over in his fancy dress out­fit. It was quite funny to watch. Worst tat­too? There are only a few lads who have tat­toos and no-one has any par­tic­u­larly bad ones. Ob­vi­ously, I have the best ones, though. Never puts their phone down? All of them. There will be about eight or nine play­ers in the dress­ing room and they are all sit­ting there on their phones – not even talk­ing to one an­other, just star­ing at their phone screens. Par­tial to a sunbed? I’d have to say James Ca­ton. He con­stantly looks like one of those peo­ple who have a year-round tan. He is tanned from head to toe and you look at him and think ‘how can that be pos­si­ble?’ Go­ing to make the best man­ager? Ob­vi­ously, it is me. I am the only one of them all do­ing my coach­ing badges at the mo­ment with the club, so I will def­i­nitely make the best man­ager!
