1) How did you start supporting Crewe and what was your first game?

Despite being born and raised in Bolton, my dad is from Crewe (well Nantwich) and has been a life-long fan. My mum, 2 older brothers and sister also followed the trend. I forget my first home game but my first away game was Huddesfield in the mid-90s - I beieve Rob Edwards scored

2) What's your most memorable moment as a fan?

Either beating Bolton at the Reebok 3-1 or beating Blackburn at Ewood 1-0 on my birthday - both special.

3) Sum up your time as a Crewe supporter...

Fantastic!

4) Best player you've seen pull on the red & white?

Danny Murphy or Dean Ashton, maybe Rob Hulse.

5) What is your all time Crewe Alex 11?

6) What are your predictions for the coming season (09/10)?

Have a bit of a rocky inconsistent start but then start to pick up round Christmas time and break into the playoffs. However the last few weeks we begin to lose our way and end up just missing out the play-offs.

Oh and Zola will get injured.

7) Where do you realistically see the club in three years time?

L1

8) One player you'd sign [realistically] if you were manager?

I don't know the budget or wage structure so not easy to say. I'd try and get a centre half in though ASAP

9) You're in control, what's one change would you make at the club?

Better marketing at kids/famlies to get them in and get them loyal. With so many big more attractive clubs around the only way youngsters are going to support their local team is if they actully go to games so special ticket offers or free replica shirt with children season tickets etc need to be done

10) Gudjon Thordarson: The right man for the job?

Hard to say but I am not one of the ones who won't give him time. For me people are judging him far to fast. He took on an incredibly hard job last year and nearly kept us up. I agree the way we fell at the end was worrying but he needs TIME to really stamp his authority.

11) Next season's League Two Champions will be...

Bradford City - far to big a club for this league!
