Birthplace: London

Overview of your club:

Favourite thing about your home ground:  Peter Osgood statue outside the ground

Favourite match played by your team & why:  Champions League Final against Bayern- of course!

Favourite player of all time who played for your club:  Peter Osgood

About our forthcoming match against you:

Your favourite current player in your squad and why?  Hazard – always a goal threat

Player in your squad we should most fear and why? Kante – can literally create something out of nothing (as you guys will appreciate).

Player in our squad you most fear and why?  We don’t fear anyone.  Vardy is usually a threat, but supposedly coming back from injury and supposedly not enjoying his football there at present, so the players we most admire in your squad currently are Maguire and Maddison

Up and coming prospect in your squad?  Andreas Christensen – sad to say he is injured for this game though (pulled hamstring v Bournemouth in midweek).

How do you think you’ll do against us?  Win 3-0

General Questions:

Where do you think you'll finish this season? 3rd

Which three teams do you think will be relegated? Fulham, Huddersfield and Cardiff

Who do you think will win the league? Man City, with Liverpool giving them a good run for their money this time.

A bit about you:

Name: Terry Mansfield

Current home town: St Albans

Birthplace: London

How long have you supported your team? 47 Years

Overview of your club:

Favourite thing about your home ground: Nothing about Wembley – new Stadium looks amazing though, I just hope we can create a better atmosphere than many have when they’ve redeveloped or moved.

Favourite match played by your team & why: In recent years it has to be the 2-1 win v Chelsea in the 2008 Football League Cup Final – purely because it brought a trophy to the club.

Favourite player of all time who played for your club: I can’t just name one e.g. Steve Perryman for his 854 games, Jimmy Greaves for his 266 goals, not to mention class from Glenn Hoddle, Osvaldo Ardiles, Paul Gascoigne, Gary Lineker, Teddy Sheringham, Jürgen Klinsmann, David Ginola, Gareth Bale & Harry Kane.

About our forthcoming match against you:

Your favourite current player in your squad and why?  Harry Kane – pure class

Player in your squad we should most fear and why? Heung-Min Son – on form

Player in our squad you most fear and why? Would have been Vardy but now he is injured I’ll go for Maddison as I think he has been an excellent buy for you.

Up and coming prospect in your squad? Kazaiah Sterling

How do you think you’ll do against us? 3-0 win

General Questions:

Where do you think you’ll finish this season?  3rd

Who do you think will win the league? Sadly the gap to Man City and Liverpool is too great.  I think Man City will win the league as Liverpool will run out of steam.

Which three teams do you think will get relegated from the Premiership? Fulham, Burnley and Cardiff

Any other comments? Yes we did come third in a two horse race!
