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.

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.
THANK YOU FOR TAKING PART COLIN.
