4 February 2015

Midfielder Answers The Questions

Having made two Blackpool appearances so far, Connor Oliver sat down to answer ten quick questions.
 
Who was your sporting hero growing up?
Alan Shearer. Even though I don't play in his position, being a Newcastle fan he was a local hero.
 
What is your career highlight so far?
Probably making my debut in The Championship. Also playing at St James' Park when I was playing for the under-21s was good. I was playing for Sunderland against Newcastle.
 
And the worst moment?
I've had three knee operations and was out for about three years all together.
 
Who was your first junior football club?
Wallsend Boys Club. It's a local team up in Newcastle.
 
If you could change one rule in football what would it be?
Getting booked for celebrating. Jumping in the crowd or taking your top off is just passionate, and I think the fans like to see that.
 
Who is the best player in your position in the world currently?
Toni Kroos. He is brilliant all round at the moment, and obviously Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard previously.
 
What is the one programme on TV you can’t miss?
Family Guy. I watch it every night before I go to bed.
 
If you could have dinner with three famous people who would you invite?
Leonardo DiCaprio, Drake and Cristiano Ronaldo
 
What is your trademark dish in the kitchen?
Spinach and ricotta pasta with broccoli.
 
In a film of your life who would play you?
Bradley Cooper, I'd like to think I was like him.
