Calum Macdonald had regained a regular place back in the Blackpool starting line-up prior to the current enforced break.

Having made 19 appearances since joining the Seasiders from Derby County, here he reveals some of his favourite things and interests: 

Who was your sporting hero growing up?

Ronaldinho. Those two years when he was at the top of his game with Barca were when I started getting into football.

What’s the best bit of advice you’ve taken on board?

Everything is always your own fault. You can only fix things yourself.

Do you have any pre-match superstitions?


Favourite goal you’ve scored in your career so far? 

I scored one for Barrow in the 96th minute against Wrexham. It was an equaliser.

What would you have been if not a footballer?

A golfer. My handicap is four.

What music do you like to listen to before a game?

A bit of old school R ‘n’ B.

What is your favourite TV series?


What is your favourite film?

The Wolf of Wall Street.

Favourite moment of the season so far?   

Probably my first league start against Peterborough.

Alongside yourself, name another four players who would make up your ultimate five-aside team. 

David De Gea, Virgil Van Dijk, Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldinho.
