‘Dreamteam’ or ‘Footballer’s wives’?

Best Goal Scored
Newcastle v Swindon in 1992, a Kevin Sheedy corner kick was cleared but Kevin Scott hooked the ball back in, it was flicked on and then came over my head I caught it on my right foot, flicked it onto my left thigh, and then hit a right foot volley over Fraser Digby in the Swindon goal.

Funniest Football Incident?
I was sub for England under 19’s and Bobby Robson, who at the time was the full England manager, was also managing us. It was an away game in Uruguay, and one of our players, I think Paul Ince, went down injured in the first half. The manager told me to warm up, which I did, it was only when I began to take off my tracksuit top that I realised I was only wearing my ‘t’ shirt and I’d left my England shirt in the changing room!! Luckily Ince, or whoever it was, recovered and I wasn’t’ needed. Half time couldn’t come fast enough and the first thing I did was pull my shirt on.
 
16.
You’ve won the league, you’re celebrating, you’ll have… mineral water, pint, short, or a babysham?
Well I used to stay clear of alcohol, but not I’m retired I’d have a glass or two of champagne.
 
17.
You’re single, dream date?
J Lo
 
18.
Best transfer at any of your clubs?
Ruud Gullit, he made a big impact on the club, a great player who had everything, the signing was also a statement that Chelsea were going places.

To play regularly in the top flight with QPR and to beat my dad’s playing record of 595 appearances and 106 goals (I did)
 
20. Biggest inspiration?
My dad, a perfect role model! He was always encouraging without being pushy, always there with advice. He used to say to me that he was living a second career through me.
