Stan Collymore Interview Extract…

FOX: What were your first impressions of Leicester when you first turned up for training?

SC: Well that’s interesting because the first person I bumped in to when I walked in to the canteen was Ian Marshall and he was reading a paper and he barely looked up and just grunted when I said hello and I thought aye, aye my reputation is preceding me here and this is going to be difficult. I imagine a lot of the players had thought what’s he gonna be like, we’ve heard a lot about him, is he gonna be a bit ‘big time’ and I knew there was a bit of scepticism around at the time. But I knew Robbie Savage from his Crewe days so I didn’t feel like a complete stranger. My first training session was on a Friday morning and Steve Walford came out with a bag of balls and said “Right, f**king hurry up lads, you can have a five-a-side and then I want to get down the pub!” and I had just come from Liverpool and Aston Villa where training was very regimented but this was unbelievable, everybody was laughing and it really was fun. I started looking forward to training but don’t get me wrong, it was organised and sometimes hard work but you could see that Leicester players at the time were enjoying it and genuinely looking forward to coming in every day.
