Twenty Questions: Peter

Twenty Questions: Peter
Name? Peter O'Hanraha-hanrahan



Age?30



Location? Liverpool



Why support Crewe?Local team, first taken by a bloke who lived on my road when I was about 10



First Crewe game attended?Crewe 2 Bolton 1, Division 4, circa Feb 1988. Chris Cutler scored the winner with a couple of minutes to go.



Season ticket holder?No, for the first time in about 18 years. Probably wont be next year either, although I tend to go most of the games anyway.



Best player you've seen pull on the red & white?Probably Danny Murphy or Dean Ashton, although Neil Lennon and Dave Brammer were more influential when fit.



Worst player you've seen pull on the red & white?Danny Noble was particularly bad, but as he normally wore green as a keeper. I'll go for Andrew Barrowman for that miss at Stoke



Best memory of supporting the Alex?Luton away in the play-offs was fantastic. West Ham away in the F.A. Cup is up there too, despite the result.



Worst memory of supporting the Alex?The announcement saying how it was the fans' fault the players weren't going to do a lap of honour at the end of last season summed up everything that is wrong in the club's attitude towards the people who are most important.



How was the 07/08 season for you? Terrible.



Where do you see us going next season (08/09)?I cant see it being any different. It will just take place in front of even less people.



Where do you realistically see the club in three years time? The only way out of this hole is to have a miracle batch of youngsters come through together or radically change the way we attract people to the ground. Cant see either happening in the next three years, so I'll say mid-table League 2.



One player you'd sign [realistically] if you were manager? A 28 year old ish, large and commanding goalkeeper with a decent clean sheet record from a League 2 or Conference club.



Steve Holland: Stay or go? Stay but buck his ideas up. Can we attack please Steve? You dont have to model the team on the way Dario played in his last 3 years. Lets have attacking midfielders, overlapping fullbacks, people getting in the box and some shots on goal, like we used to.



Season ticket prices: Fair or unfair? Neither fair or unfair. Just unrealistic. What's the point of having a 10,000 seater ground with 3,500 people in it. Reduce the prices as far as it takes until the ground is full.



Pop Side, Gresty Road End or neither? Either as long as its full.



Standing or sitting? Standing.



Opposition you dislike the most?Do Stoke still count as opposition? No? OK, take your pick from Bury, Stockport, Oldham, Port Vale, Wrexham, Gillingham, Wigan, Leeds, Sheff Utd, Birmingham, Cardiff.



Next season's League One Champions will be...If I was having a bet I might have a nibble on MK Dons if the price was decent.
