Team mates

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP RESULTS - Si­mon Cox - Southend United striker

Best mate at club An­ton Fer­di­nand. I’ve played with him at Read­ing and we’ve been to­gether for the past three years now. Last to buy din­ner An­ton, 100 per cent. He’s one who gets up and goes to the toi­let when the bill comes around. We go for a lit­tle lunch on Fri­days af­ter train­ing. We did it pretty fre­quently last year and we had a rel­a­tively suc­cess­ful sea­son. But I’m pretty sure he only bought about four lunches. FIFA king I don’t play my­self th­ese days, but we get a few boys who come down af­ter din­ner and say ‘I’ve beaten you, I’ve beaten you and I’ve beaten you as well’. I’d prob­a­bly say Theo Robin­son is king at the minute. Worst dressed Ben Coker has loads of stuff that has holes in it. I don’t know if he’s got some fash­ion tips off some­one – maybe a home­less per­son or some­thing. Dress­ing room DJ I’ve taken it on be­cause when we went away pre-sea­son I took a speaker and I was play­ing nor­mal tunes. It was Ryan Leonard last year and peo­ple were not very happy with some of the tunes. Most skil­ful An­thony Wordsworth has some tricks when he’s do­ing keepie up­pies. Late for train­ing Nile Ranger is al­ways late. We don’t re­ally get a lot of it, to be hon­est. I don’t like to be late. Man­ager’s pet There’s only one – An­ton. It’s a re­la­tion­ship no­body can get in be­tween. I think they come as a pair. It’s quite amus­ing but we’ll leave it there. Best/worst cook That’s dif­fi­cult be­cause we all eat at the club and not many bring their own food in. There’s a few who claim they’ve got a bit. An­thony Wordsworth fan­cies him­self in the kitchen. First on the dance­floor Michael Tim­lin has a few moves which are in­ter­est­ing. He likes to go for some happy feet moves. He likes his space as well so he puts his el­bows out. He needs about a me­tre around him. Most likely to dis­grace them­selves at Xmas party I don’t know about the new lads but Tim­lin gets to a point where you can­not talk to him. Af­ter he’s torn up the dance floor, he keeps quiet so maybe him. Worst tat­toos An­thony Wordsworth. Some of his stuff is dot­ted around all over the place. He’s got a colonel, which is bizarre. Theo Robin­son has some bad ones on his leg. I can­not get my head around Woddy’s (Wordsworth’s). Never puts their phone down An­ton loves a good chat. He’s one of those peo­ple. If you get him or you ask him a ques­tion he’ll just go off and you’ll be on the phone for about 25 min­utes at least ev­ery time. He’ll tell you about his day and more. Par­tial to a sunbed I think a lot of peo­ple do it around Christ­mas. Most have got the Es­sex com­bover but no one is ul­tra-tanned apart from the man­ager, Phil Brown. Go­ing to make the best man­ager I think Michael Tim­lin. He’s very straight, very hon­est. He doesn’t mind get­ting into ar­gu­ments with play­ers and he doesn’t take no for an an­swer.
