Vital Gas Interviews:Langford Gas

Vital Gas Interviews:Langford Gas
1) When did you become a Gashead and why? .I think it was when I was an egg, though my earliest recollection is 1961 introduced by my Father and Grandparents.

2) What is your opinion on the season so far?
Surpassed my expectations
3) Best moment(s) of this season so far?Definately the takeover

4) Worst moment(s) of this season so far?
Accrington at home when we sponsored the game and we couldn't pick a M.o.M

5) Do you expect any arrivals before the loan window shuts and IF you could bring in a player or two, who (realistically) would you opt for?I think we could expect two arrivals who I would have no idea but I hope for an out an out winger and someone to play alongside Gaffney.

6) What is your opinion of Darrell Clarke now he has been in charge for nearly two years?I think he is one of the best we have had and potentially the best since Fred Ford

7) Early days I know, but what is your opinion on Wael Al-Qadi
and Steve Hamer so far?
WAQ I think is a very genuine and honest man and I have 100% faith in him. Steve Hamer I think is a very good communicator and always knows the right things to say

8) What do you expect from the new owners and if you could give them one bit of advice what would it be?In the first instance I would like them to keep us solvent, debt free and in the football league, and would suggest that they learn the history of the club and exactly where it fits in our lives as a piece of advice, only then will they know how to run this club.

9) If you could have one thing from the new owners, what (realistically) would it be?Solvent, debt free and in the football league

10) Now Nick Higgs has gone, what is your opinion on his reign as Chairman?.Made mistakes like we all do but think this sums it up perfect ;
It's not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or when the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worth cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at the worst if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.

11) Where do you see us in 10 years time?Top half of the Championship and in a new stadium

12) Favourite current player? Gaffney

13) Favourite former player/s?Harold Jarman, Alan Warboys,David Williams, Barry Hayles

14) If you were stuck on a desert island with one person who would you most and least like it to be?Most; George Best Least; Cotteril

15) And finally, have you looked where Jordan is on the map?I've been there so yes.
