This month's interviewee harks (nowadays) from the mainland, from the west of London, but was originally one of the 'Bap pastie' brigade - it's the outspoken Sin!
Location: Ealing, London
Years in Exile: Since last September. What took you away from the Blues: A woman. Describe your typical Saturday afternoon: Saturday afternoon you will find me in and around Ealing, checking out the local 2nd hand record shops. Twitching away as I’m not at the match.
How do you follow Linfield’s progress: On the net and my old man. What do you miss most: I miss watching the Blues, decent Ulster Fries (though she’s learning), my old man shouting out his views on Radio Ulster’s commentaries (much to the amusement of those around us) my seat in the South Stand and bap pasties.
How often do you get home to see the Blues: I was hoping to get back at lest once a month, but it looks more like once every two months now. My next game should be Celtic in November.
Favourite exiled moment: Coming back from last years Irish Cup Final, with a big smile on my face and having a bottle of Blackbush under my arm.
Worst exiled moment: Every match day I’m not there.
Do the locals know of the Blues? Not really, I think my neighbours do, as I give them a selection of songs after I’ve had a few beers too many. One of the lads in work has decided to take the scum as his team in a strange effort to wind me up, if any thing, it brighten ups the working day.
What’s the biggest change you’ve noticed about Linfield in recent times compared to when you lived there? : I haven’t been away long enough for there to be a real change at the club.
Which was your favourite Linfield team: How can you answer a question like that, I’ve been lucky enough to see many successful teams at the Shrine. At a push it would have to the great set of players we had from the early till mid 80’s.
Favourite former player? Current player? : Only one man stands out above many other greats for me and that’s Peter Rafferty. He led by example and should always be the bench mark for any Linfield captain. Although he is coming to the end of career, Noel Bailie has always impressed and still impresses, I’ve no idea how we are going to fill his boots when he hangs them up.
Favourite local team? None at the minute, though I’m toying with the idea of going to see Brentford this season.
Cult hero? Martin McGaughey, do I need to say any more, than Buckets was a God.
Anti-hero? Paul Mooney, he never really recovered from that own goal, did he?
Have you ever seen the Blues abroad, and if so, where: No.
Would you move back home if you had the chance, and why (not): Yes, I’d get to see the Blues. No, because I’ve a created a good life for myself here and I get to see more of the bands I want to see here in London, a highlight would be seeing The Who twice in the space of three months, you just don’t get that in Belfast.
If you could have a word in DJ’s ear, what would it be: Let’s be seeing more of the young lads in the team and keep on winning.
Linfield’s future is… In safe hands I believe, as long as we keep improving our youth policy.
