Player Of The Month August 2019
A. This is an easy one for me if you consider everything about a game of football. It is the home game v Cardiff and we were 3 down at half time. I came on early in the second half with Lilian and the game finished at 3-3 and I got 2 assists (admittedly one was an assist from an own goal). Amazing game of football, amazing support, it was a brilliant day and one I will always remember.
A. Barry Hayles had everything as a player. He was strong, he never stopped, he was technically excellent and he was very easy to play with. His reading of a game was also superb. He is also a great guy.
A. Mikel. Do I have to tell you why? Haha. A real talent and such a great attitude to the game.
A. One day Tony Pulis arranged for the defenders to start a session at 10am and midfielders / strikers to start at 1030am. Nuno Mendes did not turn up at 10am as he was supposed to and Tony called him and really told him off and told him to come in immediately as he was late.
Q. Nuno arrived at 1025 and announced to everybody, “today I am a striker”
A.He wasn’t at the club very long after that.
A. I run Grund FC which is a football academy in Budapest. I hope to forge a relationship with Plymouth so that I can send youth players over for the club to look at. So far they have been very kind to take 3 of my boys (2 are with me this week). Maybe, Plymouth would like to send youth teams over to Budapest for tournaments?We have some great talent in our club and it would be a dream for me to see another Hungarian pull on the green shirt of Argyle.
I am also the father to 2 lovely girls and a partner to Diana. I also develop properties in Budapest.
A. I scored an own goal at Home Park early in my Plymouth career to put us 1-0 down. I tried all of the game to make up for it and was so, so tired after the game. I cannot even remember who it was against
A. Yes, absolutely. My father is a football coach and we worked together from when I was very young to become a professional footballer.
A. I had some good managers that I could mention but Ollie has to be the best. He was so enthusiastic and he treated his players like his family.
I was also coached by Jose Mourinho and he was a great communicator and man manager.
Q. What was your pre-match routine? E.g. lucky item, superstitions?
A. Just to focus very, very hard on the next 90 minutes. No superstitions.
A. Maybe VAR, ask me in 6 months.
A. Without doubt, my father. He introduced me to the game, he taught me everything about football and he insisted I use both of my feet (something I am very grateful for!). We practiced free kicks for many many hours too. He made me concentrate on the techniques of the game too.
Q. If you could choose any player in the world you would have liked to have played with, who would it have been?
A. David Beckham.
