Player Of The Month November 2014

EVERY MONTH THE ARGYLE LEGENDS WEBSITE WILL FEATURE AN INTERVIEW WITH A PLAYER.

THIS MONTH WE ASKED COLIN SULLIVAN 20 QUESTIONS. READ HIS ANSWERS BELOW.  

 

Q: What was your most memorable match whilst at Plymouth Argyle?

A: Playing Leeds United in FA Cup at Elland Road.

 

Q: Who was the best Argyle player you played with and why?

A: Steve Davey – great natural ability, very good in the air. Always confident and should have played at a higher level with his ability.

 

Q: Who was you toughest opponent and why?

A: Laurie Cunningham – two good feet and very fast – could beat you down the line or cut inside and have a shot at goal.

 

Q: You must have an amusing story you could share with us about your time at Argyle?

A: Leaving Tony Ford behind after playing at Bolton – It was 20 minutes before he was missed then the bus had to return to pick him up.

 

Q: Now you are no longer playing football how do you occupy yourself?

A: Working as a Landscape Gardener. Playing golf in my leisure time.

 

Q: Can you recall your most embarrassing moment?

A: None come to mind.

 

Q: How has football changed over the years?

A: The introduction of signing overseas players has brought many changes and hasn’t helped the ‘home grown’ players nor the international team.

 

Q: Who was the best manager you ever played under and why?

A: John Bond who signed me for Norwich City FC – he was a very good coach and always made training interesting.

 

Q: What was your pre-match routine? E.g. lucky item, superstitions?

A: Put my shorts on last then being the last player to leave the dressing room.

 

Q: If you could change or amend one law of the game – or introduce a new one to benefit modern-day football, what would it be?

A: No substitutes should be allowed after 90 minutes on the clock and stop the time wasting.

 

Q: Do you think argyle will do well this season?

A: Yes – I’m hoping so.

 

Q: If you could choose any player in the world you would have liked to have played with, who would it have been?

A: George Best.

 

Q: Do you follow Argyle’s progress or attend any of their matches?

A: Yes I follow the results every weekend and attend matches when it fits in with visiting family in Cornwall.

 

Q: Who was the worst dressed player during your time at the club?

A: Ronnie Brown.

 

Q: What would be the highlight of your time at Argyle?

A: First team debut and later the league cup run.

 

Q: Who was your favourite player while growing up?

A:  Terry Cooper of Leeds United.

 

Q: What was your favourite ground?

A: Goodison Park.

 

Q: If you could go back and do one thing differently, what would it be?

A: Not listen or take any notice of the abuse and barracking from the crowd.

 

Q: What advice would you give to any young player coming into the game?

A: Always be confident of your ability and work hard.And finally. What are your views on agents in the modern game? Ban them – they have too much power and take too much money out of the game.
