Other players with a promising future:
I know lots of players with a promising future but the one's that comes to mind are Gerard O'Kane and Joe Keenan. Gerard is the greatest captain I have played under and there is no better. He can play anywhere on the pitch with great success. Joe is a brilliant man marker.
I have never seen a forward get the better of him I would watch out for these two players.
I hate people that laugh at their own jokes and people that chew loudly
Bit of everything

Britney Spears but if she isn't available I'd settle for Kelly Brook

As a player that kept his feet on the ground and never got ahead of himself. A player that gave his best everytime he lined out on the pitch
