11.
Best fans (other than own clubs)
For passion it has to be the Newcastle fans. But it’s easy following the big teams, but when we went down to Swansea in April 2004 we beat them 2-1 and they gave us a standing ovation as we left the pitch. A few days after the game we received a letter from their fan club wishing us all the best for the rest of the season and hoping that we'd stay up. When it was read out to us, we just sat there and couldn't quite believe it. They reminded us that football is as much about the fans as it is about the players. It's not every day that players are lost for words, but every player in that room will always remember the Swansea supporters as being something special.

Best Match and Why?
I was playing for Leeds Youth and we were being hammered 4-0 at half-time against Liverpool. In the second we socred fiev without conceeding any...that's what I call a come back.

Worst Match and Why?
There's been a few this season, but after doing all the hard work to get to Cardiff, apart from the atmosphere and occasion, the LDV Final was a big disappointment.
 
14.
Best advice given?
I've probably heard every bit of football advice in world from 'Pop' Robson and Dick Bates at national level, but I remember being told 'watch the best, study and learn from the best'.

Best goal scored?
I hit a volley and scored for Leeds Youth team from over head 30 yards out.
