A Chat With Danny Francis

5 years ago By Elliot Mercer

Name: Daniel Francis
Position: Striker

Who is your footballing idol?

Wrighty man. Ian Wright.

What team do you support?


Who is the best player of all time?

Zinedine Zidane sprung to mind.

What is your most memorable match?

I'll have to drop this one. For my country against Barbados. 20,000. 1-1. Emerson Boyce on the wing. Probably my most memorable game to be fair.

What is the best ground that you have played at?

Highbury when I was there at youth. It was really nice.

Who is the best player you have played with or against?

I'll say against, it has to be Scott Parker. It was at Stortford a couple of seasons ago. I was told to man-mark him and I find his movement, to be fair, is unreal.

Who is the hardest worker at the club?

I'll have to say myself, I work hard mate! But besides me, Cutler works really hard to be honest.

Who is the biggest moaner at the club?

Meady is the biggest moaner unfortunately. He's my mate and I love him but yeah.

Who is the most and least intelligent?

Most intelligent? Something says to me that Westy seems like quite an intelligent lad. And the least... have to go for Rimmers because he's the model! All he's got to do is stand up there you know what I mean. Just stand up there and pose. Love you though Rim!

Who is the biggest joker?

Waters. Aaron's a big joker he is.

Who's got the worst dress sense?

It's hard because we ain't all been out, all the lads have we? All I can go by is Bombay when we went out for a meal for an Indian. Worst dress sense would be... that's a hard one man... mate you've caught me there! You actually caught me with that one and I don't get caught very often! I need to think of one. Can't be beaten... Crooksy! I'll give it to Crooksy. Safe bet.

And finally, who is the longest in the shower?

Longest in the shower is myself. Besides me it's going have to be... who's in there with me? Forbesy man. Forbesy takes a long time in there.

Anthony Mercer: Is it not Ben Crooks in the showers?

Yeah it is! Change my answer. Change it to Crooksy.
