Worst Taste in Music: Seeing Stokesy said me, i imagine his tastes are the opposite to mine, so i have to say him

Worst Taste in Music: Ian Browne again, lost in a time wharp somewhere back in the 70’s
And...Who's the longest in the shower: Definitely Meehan, although Sebo is physically the longest in the showers but he has to moisturise, apply fake tan, pose etc. so we let him off!
20 Jan 2011 - Team mates with Dan Garrod
|Best Trainer: Only been on a couple of occasions but GEO, looks like he puts alot into it. Reminds me of an older Ryan Giggs
Worst Trainer: Joe Stokes-He's ginger and a uni boy, he's been at both sessions but yeh ill go for joe just coz hes ginger
Most Skillful: Herberts got some skills but im guna go for me, got a new trick that ive learnt in my 9 week suspension, im preparing to use it in the warm up
The Joker: Some might say me and Barnard, but ill go for Mitch and Shiels, One Direction boys have got pretty decent banter
Fastest. ASIA? Like a young Keith Gillespie
Most Intelligent: ....................Billy Rayner seems pretty switched on so ill go for him
Least Intelligent: Barnard is close, but my vote goes for BIFF,solid player but not a clue whats going on, puts his head anywhere, nutter.
Worst Dress Sense: Tough one, dont wana insult anyone too much so ill go for Browner, fat clothes and normally pretty dull, maybe coz hes getting old?

20 Jan 2011 - Team mates with Joe Stokes
|Name: Joe Stokes
Date of birth: June 20 1989
Previous clubs: Worthing United, Worthing Town (Sunday) Goring Rangers FC, Clymping FC (glory days), EP & Wick Youth
Best Trainer: Neil Giovanni Francis - a model pro, no messing about!
Worst Trainer: Myself - can't stand it, although Ian Browne is terrible.
Most Skillful: Paul Brown - tremendous touch. David Herbert - great on the ball.
The Joker: Jan Miller (off pitch) - hilarious in everything he says. Dom Di Paola (on pitch) - not a natural player...
Fastest: Asa Nicks - when he fancies it. Richy Moss - can't usually stop, once he gets going.
Most Intelligent: Dom Di Paola - but it was slim pickings.
Least Intelligent: Asa, Mitch, Joe Shiel, Tone etc
Worst Dress Sense: Ian Browne - should take this accolade down easily.
Worst Taste in Music: Neil Giovanni Francis - for such a great bloke, his music is bloody rubbish!
And...Who's the longest in the shower: Aaron Meehan/ Paul Brown
20 Jan 2011 - Team mates with Ian Browne
|Name: Ian Zidane Browne
Date of birth: 15/11/1928
Previous clubs: AC Milan, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Ajax
Best Trainer: Depends, no one wants to win more than myself in the training games, but as far as all that running around bollocks, Biff Shelly, Sam Corkill and Aaron Meehan usually put in a proper shift when in comes to all that running about lark.
Worst Trainer: Without question, Dave Herbert. Most of the time I think he arrives at training after just hearing his dog has just "curled its toes".
Most Skilful: Not sure about that one as it appears none of them could control a fart let alone ball mastery (that’s what it's called in the trade)
The Joker: Jan Miller, mainly because he looks stoopid. Although Danielle James Garrod is mental... In the NHS secure padded cell sense of the word.
Fastest: Well reaction times. It’s myself. Running, that's a close one. Asia Niggleson is fast over 20/40 yards and Richie (wolfman) Moss is fast over 1/15yrds. Either way you’d want them on your relay team.
Most Intelligent: Gio wears specks and has grey hair, so on that basis I’ll go for Gio.
Least Intelligent: Hmmm, this is tough as I really don’t think if I melted down the brains of the whole 1st team squad to mould one brain, I doubt I would get one that is any better than 6 year old child’s brain, and I think there’s a lot 6 year old children out there that would be unhappy with that comparison. But to go for just one, I’ll say... Sam (sowee Sam).
Worst Dress Sense: Sebo. Anyone who wears, what can only be describe as gloves for your feet needs a mention in this category.
Worst Taste in Music: Dom, he listens to all sorts rubbish. Joe “weasley” Stokes and Steve (briefcase wan….r) Phillips as well, just because they're dirty students who need to have a wash and get a proper job rather than sponging off us tax payers...
And...Who's the longest in the shower: Gav or Meehan.
