Giving a more in depth look at some of our (previous) star players of LFC.Name: Andrew OâSullivan
Tell us about your first footballing memory
I focused on rugby until i was about 15, but always kicked a ball around with my dad in the parkâŠ iâve got a lot of fond memories of that. He selectively gave up playing sport with me as I got old enough to beat him and now only plays golf (and scrabble).
Others clubs you support other than LĂ„ngholmen
Plymouth Argyle. My home town. You can see the stadium from my back garden and can hear the roar of the goals going in on a Saturday afternoon.
Your most memorable game in a LĂ„ngholmen jersey
Individually there has been highs and lows. Scoring four in one game in Div 5 vs Stuvsta, and breaking my leg in a 3-2 win last season both memorable for different reasons. My favourite team performance would possibly be our last game of last season and the 3-2 win away against the leagueâs runner-up ĂsterĂ„ker. It was played in some terrible conditions, a good old fashioned mud bath, and some very amusing moments culminated in a team âpile-upâ when Deri scored the winner in the last 5 mins. Classic LĂ„ngholmen.
If you could play alongside any player in the world who would it be and why
Zidane and Cantona stand out as the best players from my eraâŠ but iâd rather play up front with Micky Evans. Heâs from Devon.
If you could have dinner with any famous person in the world who would it be and what where would you eat .
Iâd have a dinner party at my place and invite Tony Blair, Dawn French, Martin Johnson, Elvis, Roald Dahl and Hitler. Iâve got questions for them all.
Name: Colm âThe King â Kenny
Age: A young 28
Highest amount of goals you have scored in a season
34, but I was injured for some of that season
Favourite other clubs apart from LĂ„ngholmen
I used to be a Villa fan, but if you mean Sweden I like Kalmar for some reason
The player you would most like to play aside past or present
Georgie Best, great player even better drinker
What would you cook Angelina Jolie for dinner if she came back to your place ?
To be honest if Angelina was back at my place we probably would not be fixing food, but if she demanded a bite to eat it would be my special Chicken Fajitas.
Which person would you most like to have a pint with ?
Seth McFarlane the creator of Family Guy. Legend
If you could choose another occupation than your present one what would it be ?
Chairman of LĂ„ngholmen FC seems like a very easy job with a nice office
What is your present occupation ?
I run after kids all day at a pre school and try and learn them how to be good citizens
..................................................................................................Name: Robbie Graham
Favourite other club apart from LĂ„ngholmen?
Favourite player as a schoolboy and why?
Andy Cole, I suppose because unlike Eric Cantona and Giggs and the like, he wasnât perfect, but still brilliant.
Most memorable match in a LĂ„ngholmen shirt?
So many but Iâll go for ViksjĂ¶ at home in 2008. We won 3-2 and got our fight for survival on track.
Biggest influence during your football career?
Probably Nick Short, our former manager. I never really played football seriously before joining LĂ„ngholmen and he taught me so much over the four years that we worked together.
If you had the chance to go out for a couple of pints with anyone in the world who would it be and why?
I would have a table of four. It would be me, Roy Keane, Stevie Wonder and Nelson Mandela. They are 3 people from different spheres of life that I inspire me and Iâm sure that we could find a lot to talk about. Mostly women, Iâd imagine.
Which position will LĂ„ngholmen finish in the league this season?
I think, realistically, we will be looking to get in the top 4 and take it from there. It will be a challenge but we have a strong talented squad that play for each other and want to progress so it will be a good challenge.
Name: Billy Harkness
Billy you chose to come from a club higher up in the league system, what is the main difference in the standard?
Since coming to Sweden Iâve noticed that there is a very rigid Swedish way of playing football, and that seems to be the same even after dropping down 2 divisions. Teams like Ăngby, EkerĂ¶ & Boo play exactly that same type of football as most of the teams in div. 2, however the biggest difference is the overall fitness of players and the quality in the final third.
What is your other favourite club apart from LĂ„ngholmen FC ?
Ha ha, apart from LĂ„ngholmenâŠ is there such a thing? Seriously though Iâm a true Mancunian so itâs Manchester United for me all the way.
If you werenât playing football on a Saturday afternoon what would you be doing?
Oooh now thatâs a tough one! Before I came to Sweden Iâd spent 5 years travelling the world, and one of the most tempting reasons (aside from my girlfriend Anna of course) for settling down again was to start back up playing football. So Iâd like to think that if I wasnât out kicking a ball around in Stora Essingen then Iâd have convinced my missus to join me on a beach somewhere in Central America, Asia or Australia! Iâd still be kicking a ball around on that beach though of courseâŠ Iâm sure Anna would make a top goalie!
Who has been the biggest influence on your football career to date?
My old fella, heâs the one who had me kicking a ball when I was still in nappies and the one who passed on the religion of Manchester United to me. He wasnât the most gifted of players himself though, a no-nonsense centre half, so I reckon I mustâve got the sport gene from my mum who was a very good athlete in her teens.
If you had the chance to have a pint with anybody in the world who would it be and why?
If the girlfriend would let me then it would be Kate Beckinsale, just to hear that gorgeous English accent for a while. If that was called off limits then my second choice would be King EricâŠ I was going to say Eddie Izzard but imagine the rumours if a transvestite comedian was my second choice!!!
Do you have any particular match day ritual you go through. Like for instance maybe you like to wear pink underwear on the way to a match ?
Well apart from the pink thong I do have a few other things I always do on match days. I eat a bowl of pasta and pesto 3 hours before kick-off, I have a strict getting kitted up routine, and I always start my warm up with this strange little right foot-left foot (in the same movement) passing thing.
What has been your favourite LĂ„ngholmen moment so far in your short time at the club ?
We were 2-1 up away to bottom of the pile Bromsten and cruising, but we switched off at the start of the second half and then gave away a penalty. The referee had no choice but give our keeper Edwin his marching orders and from looking like we were on our way to a routine win, it felt to me that if they were to level the scores with the penalty then we were in for an almighty struggle and possibly our title dreams in tatters. With no substitute goalie on the bench we had no choice but to put the player in goal who could fill up as much of the net as possible, step up Stu Lascelles who then pulled out a wonderful diving save to his left and turned the penalty around the post. We regained our composure shortly after and went on to win the match at a canter even with 10 men, but for me that penalty save could turn out to be a defining moment in our push for the title.
