Class 5CS at Broad Oak Primary asked their class teacher the following questions…
What sport, other than football, do you like and why?
I’m a huge fan of Ice Hockey and, if I could be anywhere, I’d be at Madison Square Garden watching the New York Rangers. It’s a fantastically skilful game played at high speed and, if you get a chance, head down to Altrincham and catch the Manchester Storm in action. You’ll be hooked!
Do you think players like Neymar are worth the money they cost?
Yes. Neymar, Messi and Ronaldo are at the pinnacle of the sport and have attributes that very few other players have ever displayed.
The economics of football (the world’s most popular sport) are crazy but it isn’t the players’ fault that they are able to demand such high salaries and transfer fees.
Who is better, Messi or Ronaldo? Please give your reasons.
This is a tricky question but my favourite is Lionel Messi. His ability to glide past opponents as if they are not there is mesmerising as is his first touch. His goal for Argentina against Nigeria is a fantastic example of how to control a ball – WOW!
Which do you prefer – the Premier League or The Championship and why?
The Premier League – It’s where every club (including Derby!) want to be!
If you didn’t support Derby County, which team would you support and why?
Whilst, I support Derby members of my family follow other clubs in the East Midlands. My Dad is a Leicester City season ticket holder and my Mum and Sister are both huge fans of Nottingham Forest.
Thus, I do have a soft spot for both Leicester and Forest – there aren’t many Derby fans that can say that!
