James Lupton is our resident blogger and this week, he was very lucky to catch Lee Dixon for an interview just before he set off to wembley for the England’s 3-1 victory over Slovenia.
Question One: What are your thoughts on the white card proposed by Sepp Blatter? This would mean any players protesting to the referee would be sin binned for ten minutes.
LD: I definitely feel that a more rugby like respect for referees would improve the game. Managers would be tougher on players if they were sat on the sidelines for ref abuse. I think it should be tested out.
Question Two: In your opinion will the Indian Super League be a success for football globally?
LD: I have not taken much interest in the Indian Super league to be honest. Anything that expands the football world to increase its popularity in traditionally none football areas is surely a good thing though.
Question Three: As a child growing up who was your footballing hero?
LD: Colin Bell of Manchester City. I used to play inside right/striker when a boy( believe it or not!)
Question Four: What eleven players would make it into your all time best team? And who would manage that team?
LD: Best 11 I have played with would be David Seaman Lee Dixon(biased)Tony Adams Steve Bould Nigel Winterburn David Rocastle Patrick Vieira Emmanuel Petit Marc Overmars Dennis Bergkamp Ian Wright. Yes Thierry Henry would be on the bench! Manager would be George Wenger! A bit of both George Graham and Arsene Wenger.
Question Five: Who do you think is one for the future, who has the greatest potential?
LD: I do like Ross Barkley. A lot of work to be done still. I do like Nathanial Clyne too. Fullbacks are my thing!
Hope that’s okay, I’m off to wembley now!
