Team mates

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS - Gboly Ariy­ibi - Chester­field winger

Best mate? I would prob­a­bly have to say Mani Dieseru­vwe be­cause I live with him. I have known him since he came to the club and he’s got Nige­rian her­itage like me, so we share a few in­ter­ests. Last to buy din­ner? I’m not sure who is the last, but Sam Morsy paid for our Nando’s the last time I went out with the lads for food. He is a good cap­tain and a top guy so he de­cided to step up and pay. He looks af­ter us well. FIFA king? I am cur­rently locked in a bit of a com­pe­ti­tion with Mani, but I don’t re­ally know who plays out of the rest of the boys. I will have to or­gan­ise a tour­na­ment to get a bet­ter idea of my com­pe­ti­tion. Worst dressed? Some of Aaron Chap­man’s gear can be ap­palling. One time he was wear­ing just a gilet with no top un­der­neath, show­ing his bare arms. He comes up with quite a few sur­pris­ing choices. Dress­ing room DJ? Ol­lie Banks plays a few DJ mixes, some RnB and house mu­sic in the dress­ing room. It is hard be­cause ev­ery­one has dif­fer­ent tastes, but Ol­lie does a pretty good job and the mu­sic is gen­er­ally pop­u­lar. Most skil­ful? I would like to say my­self, or pos­si­bly Jay O’Shea. As a winger I like to throw in a few step-overs when I play, but I haven’t yet got the Yan­nick Bo­lasie-type stuff, so I’ll have to work on that from now on in train­ing. Late for train­ing? No one stands out as we are all quite pro­fes­sional here. Peo­ple tend to ar­rive on time as man­ager Dean Saun­ders runs a tight ship. Teacher’s pet? I think the man­ager has a good re­la­tion­ship with all the play­ers. Maybe he likes the strik­ers bet­ter be­cause he was one him­self, but he cer­tainly does not make it too ob­vi­ous. Worst cook? No one re­ally cooks for any­one. I’m for­tu­nate enough not to have ex­pe­ri­enced any ter­ri­ble cook­ing from my team mates yet. Nu­tri­tion is quite im­por­tant so I’m happy to steer clear of their at­tempts! First on the dance floor? It used to be Sam Clu­cas when he was still here but Myles Wright came out when he turned 18 and was bust­ing some moves. Most likely to dis­grace them­selves at the Xmas party? Ev­ery­one here is pretty cool and lev­el­headed. Tommy Lee is a funny guy, he is lively and has good chat so he is usu­ally the life of the party, but I am yet to see him dis­grace him­self. Worst tat­too? There could be a few, but I am not go­ing to name names. I don’t want to em­bar­rass them! But there are one or two about so they prob­a­bly know who they are. Never puts the phone down? Aaron Chap­man is al­ways ac­tive, mes­sag­ing away, but I’m also on my phone quite a lot. I will let some oth­ers off be­cause they are very at­tached to their girl­friends. Par­tial to a sunbed? None that I know of, but they prob­a­bly wouldn’t ad­mit if they were. They keep it sub­tle be­cause they would prob­a­bly get a bit of a rib­bing for it. Go­ing to make the best man­ager? Ritchie Humphreys comes to mind straight away. Ian Evatt would also be a good man­ager.
