Best mate at the club? Conor McLaughlin. I have known him the longest, we are about the same age and we both signed for Fleetwood at the same time. Last to buy dinner? We don’t eat together that often but David Ball isn’t keen on dipping his hand in his pocket – that’s the rumour from the guys in his car pool, Conor, Jimmy Ryan and Stevie Jordan. The FIFA king? I would be up there – I’m a bit of a computer geek – but there are a few of us. Jamille Matt, who has just gone on loan to Stevenage, Conor again and Amari’i Bell are all pretty good. We did a tournament last year and I won but never got my money! Worst dressed? It’s bad when you start thinking of yourself for these! It’s going to have to be me – I dress for warmth and comfort, not for fashion. Dressing room DJ? Conor McLaughlin is very fond of Justin Bieber at the moment. I saw that story about Southend on Twitter and tagged him in it – it could have been us! He is playing nothing but Chris Brown and Justin Bieber but it goes down pretty well. Most skilful? David Ball has got pretty good feet and showed what he can do to get a nomination for the Puskas award. I don’t take much notice at training so I’ll go with him. Late for training? We are all pretty good for time but I would say our new signing Dionatan Teixeira. I don’t think he has the right time on his watch, put it that way. Teacher’s pet? Bobby Grant shares his opinion a lot and the manager likes that. Jimmy Ryan is up there too, but everybody loves him because he’s just a good guy and a good pro. Worst cook? I honestly don’t know. All I know is I’m the cook in my house. I live with my missus, Bethany, and I don’t let her near the kitchen because she would burn the house down. First on the dance floor? There are three of us – it’s me, Conor and Jamille. Conor thinks he is Chris Brown. We go out when we can but it’s not very often during the season. Most likely to disgrace themselves at the Christmas party? Everyone is actually quite well-behaved. I have definitely been in worse teams, where we would get into a lot of trouble. Ask me again in two weeks when we’ve had our Christmas party! Worst tattoo? Declan McManus has a terrible tattoo on his backside from Magaluf a few years ago. It is so bad, you can’t even tell what it
is. Never puts the phone down? You are lucky to get a word out of Jack Sowerby. He is always texting somebody or doing something else on it. Partial to the sunbed? It used to be Mark Roberts but he’s not here anymore and noone has followed in his footsteps. It’s definitely not my thing. Going to make best manager? I think Nathan Pond would be good. He has got great experience and he has a lot of knowledge of what is expected from players at this level.
