1. ex striker ? Yeboah, Viduka, Hasselbaink, Chapman or Cantona.
If it's limited to those five mentioned, Viduka. If not, John Charles.

2. one actor/actress complete film collection ?
Great question : Humphrey Bogart because I'm kinda doing it now anyway.

3. Where, how, when did you meet your partner ?
I'm single. The last woman I dated I met dancing to old soul in a cellar bar ..

This season's Championship Play-Off Final at Wembley.

5. Staying at a top hotel and you can have anything up to six items on your breakfast plate, what 6 do you go for ?
Salmon and poached eggs on a split bagel, an apple and two cups of strong black coffee.

6. Which sport have you played to the highest standard ?
Football, to local Sunday league Div 3 or 4 - can't remember. Pretty ropey anyway.
My grandfather played crown green bowls for England and my dad took a frame off Joe Davis at snooker in the 60s when he was world champion.

9. What was your favorite decade ?
1950s. I would've loved to have been a teenager just as things started getting interesting in about '54 ..

10. Other than Leeds what other football teams do you like ?
I keep an eye on foreign teams I've seen play, in particular LOSC (Lille), Orlando Pirates (South Africa), Hamburg, AC Milan and Sporting Lisbon. In the UK I always look out for the results of friends' clubs but other than Leeds I have a soft spot for Everton as I've been there the most after Elland Road and Southampton (who I don't like mainly to wind up everyone I know).

Chapman - Arguably the most similar to Wood, so would fit into our 4-2-3-1 system easier

Anything with Roxanne Pallett in it.

Work, apparently I used to talk about her constantly when me and the lads went to the pub every Friday lunchtime. A friend got that frustrated with it he told her, and she gave him her number for me as she felt the same. It's the 14th anniversary of our first date this coming Monday.

4. If you could get tickets for any major sporting event in the UK what would it be ?

Good question, probably a major boxing event.

Football.

Late 80's. Had just started going out with the lads on nights out - crazy times thinking back now.

Have a bit of a soft spot for Liverpool, but don't really 'like' any others.
