RUFC - Q&A with A Hatter!

Scotty, the Luton ed, has kindly answered some questions for us

Rotherham United travel to Luton Town on Saturday - weather permitting and Scotty let us know a few things about his time following The Hatters

How long have you been following the Hatters?
51 yrs man and foetus!

After the kick in the pants (being polite here!) the FL gave you, do you think you will still be in the League next season
It's touch and go. I think we'll do better second half of the season but it obviously will depend on other teams results as well as our own. Also it would help if one or two went into admin and lost ten each!

Who are your key players?
We have been without two key players for most of the season in Pilkington and Nicholls but in their absence Ian Roper has been awesome after a poor start. I would like us to keep Craddock on loan and Mickey Spilane has been a really good signing on loan from Norwich

And who would you glady get a taxi for!
No one who is at the club currently, although if Dean Morgan comes back after a loan to Orient I'd gladly drive the cab myself!

Who is the best player you have ever seen in a Hatters shirt?
Gordon Turner in the 60s - if you gave him a yard of space it was in your net. More recently I liked Malcolm MacDonald, Paul Walsh and David Moss, and of course the legend that is Mick Harford.

What is the best game you have ever seen involving your club?
League cup final 1988 against Arsenal.

Who are the best opposition you have ever seen?
Having been in the top division a couple of times since I started watching them, the Liverpool team of the 80s was awesome and one game at Anfield where we played out of our skin led and ended up 3-3 was a great game of football with Luton's team being the best they have been.

Best ground you've ever visited?
There have been a few. I like Stamford Bridge, Anfield and Goodison, but for atmosphere and a great surface I'd go for Hillsborough

Who do you see as your biggest threats in League Two?
The FA and the Football League! Since most teams are already out of our reach we must target Bournemouth, Barnet and Grimsby, and anyone who goes into freefall as one or two teams nearly always do. 'I was very tempted to just leave the first sentence on this!' Caz

Is there anything you would change about your club?
Yes! I'd give them back their 30 points!

Thanks for this Scotty. We like playing at Hillsborough too - we tend to win!!! After Saturday, I hope you do really well - wouldn't it be great if the three who started on minus points this season could stop in the League and say 'nah, nah, nee, nah, nah' to the FL!
