RUFC - Q & A Session with a Shrew!

RUFC - Q & A Session with a Shrew!

Rotherham United travel to Shrewsbury on Tuesday night and Vital Shrews Ed has kindly answered some questions for us.

So, here we go

What is your name and how long have you supported your team?
Adam Calverley. I have supported Shrewsbury since I moved there when I was seven-ish. My dad used to take me to Blackpool games and tried to get me to be a Pool fan. But after having a season ticket from aged 12, there was no real choice for me!

Has your season gone the way you expected it so far this season?
The season so far smacks of us. Inconsistent. One moment we can be playing great football and the next we can be losing at home to Staines and Port Vale. I am sure we will be around the play-offs at the end and we are up there at the moment without really performing amazingly well.

How do you think your team will line up against The Millers?
I would like to see us go all out against you lot as I watched you at Vale Park recently and I think you can be got at easily. I would like to see this line up. On loan keeper David Button in goal, Dean Holden, Graham Coughlan, Kelvin Langmead, Cansdell-Sherriff, McIntyre, Fairhurst, Dunfield, Robinson, Hibbert, Elder. 4-3-3 and victory ensues.

Who is your best player?
Our best player this season has been Dave Hibbert. A surprise as he is only just starting to bang in the goals in his third season at the club and he has managed to net around 10 so far. We also have Graham Coughlan who is secure at the back and our captain supremo, I am sure you know about him though as he was with you for a period before we signed him.

Who is the best player you have ever seen in a Shrews shirt?
The best player ever is a hard one. If you go for a 'where are they now?' view, it would have to be Joe Hart as he made his debut for us when he was 16. For cult hero it would be Peter Wilding, who once marked a young Wayne Rooney out of the game as we knocked Everton out of the FA cup. Ian Woan was here towards the end of his career too.

Is there anyone at the club you would gladly do without?
Yet to be decided and it would be harsh to single anyone out. But, without being boring, I dont think Steve Leslie would be playing for us if he wasnt local.

What is the best game you have ever seen involving your club?
That game Wilding had Rooney in his pocket. 2-1 against high-flying Everton at Gay Meadow in 2003 and two great goals from Nigel Jemson. We got relegated in the end though, despite the cup run.

Who is the best opposing team you have ever seen?
Same cup run, Chelsea came to the Meadow and battered us. Zola was on fire that day to mention just one of their many talents that were on display.

Which are your favourite and least favourite grounds?
Favourite ground would have to be Aldershot. It is a very quaint little place and one of the oddest in the league. The worst would be The Don Valley! It lacks an atmosphere for obvious reasons and just does not work as a football ground. Sorry. I can't disagree with you about DVS

Finally, what is the best thing you have ever eaten at a football match?
The best thing would have to be a lovely Meat and Potato pie that I had at the Port Vale v Huddersfield match on Saturday. Purely because I didn't pay for it and it is fresh in the memory!

So, we need to find out why you didn't pay for your pie!
Thanks for taking time to answer our questions, Adam. Enjoy the rest of the season - after Tuesday of course!

I didnt pay for it due to the journalism gravy train! Unlucky last nigt, 2-0 flattered us really and it was a terrible game.
