My Select XI

We’ve pulled in a mixture of questions from the good old football programmes of yesteryear, along with the sort of questions we’ve put to sports professionals over the last few years. What is the best description of yourself you’ve heard?
That I’m a suprisingly decent bloke for a computer geek. The kettle’s on, what are you having?
A muddy coffee.

here Favourite chocolate bar?
Boost. Always a Boost.

Favourite TV programme?
Only Fools and Horses gets funnier with the years. Now that Breaking Bad is done, out of the current offering it has to be Homeland. I quite fancy being a spy in another life.

Favourite film?
Life of Brian.

Favourite player?
Bryan Robson.

If you could change one thing about your favourite sport, what would it be?
With seven substitutes having a player sent off doesn’t penalise teams in the way it should. Instead when a player is dismissed, they are replaced by a randomly drawn member of crowd. The fan has to play in what they are wearing, in that position, and they cannot be substituted.

Who is worth a follow on Twitter?

What is most likely to annoy you today?
Probably the new energy efficient light system in the office, unless you do a star jump every five minutes it plunges you into darkness. On the plus side it’s keeping me fit.

If a film was made of your life, who would you want to play you and why?
I’d like to think Ricky Gervais could work but I am honest enough to admit is more likely to be Karl Pilkington.

Tell us something we don’t know about you?
I have seen Susan Boyle in her pyjamas.
