I got a first hand perspective of some of our players the other week and I've been meaning to share it with my fellow blues.
I was stuck in work a few Saturdays back. My work buddy used to be in Morecambe FC's academy and at the time became quite pally with Terry McFlynn, who now captains Sydney FC.
My mate was really chuffed when I told him his old pal had lined up against Everton earlier that day and sent Terry his congratulations in a text.
McFlynn, who seems a smashing bloke by all accounts, texted straight back to say he was currently cutting up the dancefloor with Phil Neville! Wow! I never had our skipper down as a budding John Travolta.
I badgered my mate to text McFlynn again and ask who impressed him from the Everton team. Again he texted back saying that Distin was the biggest fucker he's ever seen, absolutely massive and also unbelievably quick! He also stated that Arteta was an absolute legend and none of their boys could get anywhere near him.
Nothing there none of us didn't already know. I should have asked him about Phil Neville's dancing skills... haha!
