Thanks for the kind words mate. Getting more and more confident each week although still need to brush up on a couple of techniques. The players openess makes it so much easier. the challenge would be if its a player who gave short answers, how can I get more out of them? I am learning though.

Another good one, enjoyed that.

You can see the increased confidence is having an impact. I like how you're picking up on things they say that are potentially interesting and then asking questions on the hoof instead of just sticking to the scripted questions.

Mind you, about 15 minutes of that interview must have been pauses for Howson's thinking time. I don't know how you judged when he'd finished his answer or when he was just thinking of his next sentence!

Appreciate it mate. Yes it was difficult to tell when he had finished his answer but I guessed most of the time. Really appreciated his honesty and openess. Most of the squad are young so its good to have somebody with as much experience and wisdom share this with us all. Honestly hope they show certain parts of that interview to players in the various academy groups we have as so much they can learn from that.

Once again I have to note how impressed I am at your skill at making these folk feel at ease. It's interesting (to me at least) how much he stops touching his head and face as the interview progresses. Congratulations again Yusuf.

Cheers for that mate. Honestly just learning each week and it was tough at times as he didnt really wamt to go into much about what he is like off the pitch so have to respect that. His thorough answers were brilliant and I could just listen to him all day.

Then you're obviously learning quickly and well. More power to you.
