Hi guys its me again, James Lupton, and I’m back with another interview this time with the former Chelsea man Dave Lee. He was kind enough to take the time to take part in my interview. Its a must read for all Chelsea fans.

Firstly I would like to hear your opinion on gay footballers, would they be treated like 70s style racism or will players be respected for coming out?

DL: My opinion on gay footballers is the same as gay people , entirely up to them what they do in there life , I think players would be respected for coming out.

Second question for you Dave is this, is football now becoming more of a business and less of a sport filled with passion for the game?

DL: Football is now a industry with all these massive fees. Owners are billionaires so money is no object to them.

The greatest footballing debate, who is the best player to ever grace the pitch?

DL: Greatest player ever In my opinion was the Brazilian Ronaldo as he's more my era and I saw him play live.

Wow, no Pele or Maradona! But see what your saying, one of the finest finishers ever! A proper striker!

On a personal note who was your footballing hero growing up?

DL: Ok so footballing hero Glenn Hoddle. Was privileged to play with and against and be managed by Glenn Hoddle. A sublime talent. 

Fantastic player Dave! One of my idols to!

And finally my personal favourite question, who would make your best ever eleven?

DL: Neville Southall, Cafu, John Terry, Bobby Moore, Paulo Maldini,  Graeme Souness, Glenn Hoddle, Gazza, , Ronaldo, Pele, Diego Maradona   Subs: Gianfranco Zola, Leo Messi , Franz Beckenbaur, Paul Scholes and Cristiano Ronaldo. My manager would be Cloghie! 

What a team that is! Even named me a subs bench to! That is a frightening team, Thank you very much Mr Dave Lee. 

And as always a massive thank you to you the reader, it is a pleasure to write for you all, feel free to follow me and my progress and all my blogs on twitter @lupto_blogger
