Who was your first United hero?
“I loved Bryan Robson when I first started supporting them, as all United fans did, but I think my first real hero was Ryan Giggs. He was unplayable when he first came on the scene. His pace was terrifying, he could go inside or outside and he wasn’t ever intimidated by opposing full-backs. No matter how much they kicked him, he kept demanding the ball and going at them. Real wingers like him just don’t seem to exist any more.”
Are the rest of the band Reds?
“They are not. I’m sorry to say that we have a Liverpool fan in our ranks. I suppose everyone has a weird family member, and he’s ours…”
Do you have a favourite United shirt, past or present?
“The black away shirt we had from 1993-95 was a particular favourite, I’ve still got my replica from that time. In terms of home shirts, I think the mid-late ‘80s adidas shirts are pretty hard to beat.”
