Under 9 Red
Team you support ?
Manchester United & Bohemians.
Favourite player ?
Wayne Rooney. Always gives it everything on the pitch.
Favourite stadium ?
Childhood hero ?
I suppose going to Dalymount as a kid, you wanted to become a footballer. You were so close to the action that I always admired the likes of Jackie Jameson and Rocky O' Brien. Further afield, I loved to watch the United team of the 70's and 80's with the likes of Coppell, McIlroy and Albiston.
Favourite tv show ?
Breaking Bad. No contest.
Favourite movie ?
Heat & Gladiator ( great action movies )
Favourite music ?
I'm a Bertie Basset when it comes to music. Allsorts. Though I do love the 80's.
A Place you would like most to visit ?
New York. I'd also love to go Whale watching in Norway.
Best place you have been ?
I love Rome. I got married there. Been back a few times but couldn't find the priest to get the marriage annulled.
( Only joking Adrienne )
Your favourite ever game ?
Has to be the Champions League final 2 years ago between Bayern Munich and Dortmund at Wembley. I was lucky enough to go with my son Glen.
Funniest club member ?
Easy. Dave Reel and Derek Nulty. Dry wit. We have some laughs on our whattsapp group text which we use for looking after the website.
Biggest moaner ?
Yeah, Derek Nulty falls into that category too. Poor Fiona.
Best player you shared a pitch with ?
Dave Reel probably expects me to say him, but the truth is he was a nightmare on the pitch, always trying flicks and turns in the box. Our box. I played for a pub team called Blackhorse Celtic with Dave. We'd a few young lads who hung around with Richie Partridge. He was on loan from Liverpool with Coventry at the time. He played for us out in Ballyfermot once. Pure class. He just tore the pitch up.
Favourite club player ?
Iv'e supported Bohs since I was very young and to follow them all over the country has it's good times and bad. It was great to be supporting them in 2001/2002 when they did the double. Glen Crowe was part of that very successful team so it's fantastic to see him every week back playing in Mochta's colours. I love to watch Dodge and Fitz on the wings. Their pace is fantastic.
Have you met anyone famous ?
I once met a player who was in his time a top goalkeeper who went by the name of Karol Jozef Wojtyla. When I met him he went by the name of Pope John Paul ll. After we got married in Rome, all the couples attending the mass and we all got to meet him afterwards.
What's the funniest moment you've seen in football ?
I suppose it would involve myself. When playing for Blackhorse Celtic at half time I started to argue with the ref. He gave me a yellow card for dissent. When he asked my name, he didn't believe my answer as it appears as two first names. So he gave me a second yellow and a red. When he checked the team card he realised his mistake and let me back on.
Best advice you ever received ?
I rarely listen and mostly go with my own instinct. Doesn't always work out though. Though my Dad, as a long time union man, has always said, sit down and talk to work things out.
See, That's why I moan, you never listen.
Person you most admire ?
My mother. She is always there to give advice and listen too. Oh and the wife too. She's not into football, but now that we have 3 sons playing for the club, she doesn't have much choice.
Most treasured possession ?
Apart from my family, it would probably be my camera. You can't beat capturing a good shot. That moment in time that can be enjoyed forever.
If you could invite any five people to dinner who would they be ?
There'd have to be a few footballers, as they always seem to have great stories and then a few few musicians for a sing song afterwards. Always the perfect way to end a good night. Gazza and Giggs would have some great stories. ( Not for everyone though ) Glen Hansard, Guy Garvey from Elbow and ED Sheeran. I hear he likes an after party.
What aspect of the club do you like ?
I love the direction the club is going in. There is a lot of passion there. I love watching the Senior team and to be honest, my three sons won't let me " not go to a game ". It's great for them to watch the Senior team and aspire to play for them someday too.
If you could be a spectator at one sporting event in history what would it be ?
1999 Champions League final in the Nou Camp. Knowing me I'd have have probably left at 90 minutes.
Proudest moment in the club ?
Iv'e only been involved with the club for about 3 years now so on a personnel level as a coach, I'm very proud of the team we have built. As a parent it has to be watching my eldest son Sean winning the McCrory cup 3 years ago, managed by Derek Nulty and Dan O' Connor. The kids were only 9 but it was special. The Moore Cup final last season with the seniors was also an incredible moment, and of course the trip to Lee side.
The greatest ever player ?
Modern day, Messi. Past, Maradona.
Desert island companion ?
Laura Whitmore. I'd say she would be good fun !
