1) What made you become a Gashead?

The Tote End.

Marcus Stewart was sad to see him leave would of loved for him to come back as player.

As it stands DC having achieved 2 promotions on a shoestring budget deffo a manager to watch in the future but Gerry Francis also sticks out having won the league.

5) Favorite current and former Rovers player?
Billy Bodin the player is certainly one to watch and I can see a lot of clubs sniffing round him in the future. Jamie Cureton Rovers worse mistake selling him on the cheap.

To early to voice an opinion deliver the new stadium first.

None really the players I wanted to leave have already left.

9) What do you think we need in the transfer window?
Deffo 2 Strikers and a 2 keepers decent centre back to start with.

10) In your opinion will the New Stadium happen?
I`d like to think it will happen but who knows a lot of off the field politics involved still need sorting out.

11) Who was your first footballing hero?
Kevin Keegan.

12) What do you expect from Rovers this season?
Play offs a must.

13) And finally, your stuck on a desert island. You can pick one person to be with, who would you choose?
Tricky one that to choices 1) If it was possible my late partner would love to spend those precious moments with her again 2) Matty Taylor so I could spend all day giving him a slap for being stupid by joining the rift raft.
