Team mates

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS -

Best mate at the club? I’ve prob­a­bly got two in Mat Sadler and Jer­maine Gran­di­son. I travel to train­ing with Mat ev­ery day and we get on very well, whereas with Jer­maine I have a lot of things in com­mon. We both like the same mu­sic and have gone on a few nights out to­gether with the other lads. Last to buy din­ner? That could eas­ily be me, and if it’s not, then I’m def­i­nitely up there. I have to know ex­actly where my money is go­ing and who is get­ting it be­fore I get my wal­let out! The FIFA king? We aren’t a group that re­ally plays com­puter games, but I know Mat Sadler and Nathaniel Knight-Per­ci­val are keen on FIFA, so they must be pretty good at it. Worst dressed? There are quite a few con­tenders, but I would say Jayson Leutwiler. He of­ten comes to train­ing in a lot of bright­ly­coloured cloth­ing and gets quite a bit of abuse for it. Dress­ing room DJ? It used to be Ty­rone Bar­nett, be­fore he went on loan, and Andy Man­gan has prob­a­bly taken up the man­tle now. Ty­rone used to play a lot of my kind of mu­sic, such as R&B and hip-hop, and Mangs – well, I’m not sure what you call it – it’s not re­ally my type of thing, but the boys seem to like it. Most skil­ful? I can’t de­cide be­tween Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro and Lar­nell Cole – they both have some se­ri­ous skills, so it’s go­ing to have to be a tie. Late for train­ing? Jer­maine Gran­di­son turns up late on oc­ca­sions, but there isn’t any­one who is a re­peat of­fender. We are a pretty good group. Worst cook? I’m go­ing to put my­self up there for worst cook be­cause I never stray from any­thing that isn’t sim­ple. I just play it very safe with things like pasta. First on the dance floor? Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro. He’s a good mover and he loves his mu­sic, so he is al­ways the one to get up there and lead the way. Most likely to dis­grace them­selves at the Christ­mas party? I would say our goal­keeper, Mark Hal­stead, be­cause he loves a drink. He’s a bit wild, any­way, when he’s sober, so imag­ine what he’s like when he’s got a few in him! Worst tat­too? Ian Black has a tat­too of the Scot­tish flag on the bot­tom of his back and the word ‘Scot­land’ above it. I sup­pose his pa­tri­otic spirit is ad­mirable but the tat­too is truly hor­ren­dous. Never puts the phone down? Zak Whit­bread. He likes a good chat, on or off the phone. Par­tial to a sunbed? Jayson Leutwiler matches his fash­ion with his pretty-boy im­age, so he’s al­ways look­ing a bit bronzed. Go­ing to make the best man­ager? Mat Sadler. He’s into all of that and he’s do­ing his coach­ing badges al­ready. He is very sen­si­ble, too, so I reckon man­age­ment will suit him.
