Peter Owen

NAME -
Peter Antony Owen

BIRTHPLACE -
Cardiff

PREVIOUS CLUBS -
Cardiff City Table Tennis Club, Hereford County Darts, Radyr Rangers FC, Radyr GC. Probably a sign of a misspent youth but I did play a lot of pool and darts. I was selected to represent Wales at darts, but only as a reserve - I still have the medal packed away somewhere

CHILDHOOD CRUSH -
Don't really remember (it was a long time ago) but I would probably say Elizabeth Montgomery from Bewitched in the 60's and 70's. I really liked that show and the way she wiggled her nose!!

FAVOURITE PROFESSIONAL PLAYER OF ALL TIME -
Ronnie Bird, Cardiff City winger in the late 60s

FAVOURITE ODIAXERE CLUB PLAYER AND WHY -
Sergio, because he just gets on with the game, has a no nonsense style of play and does it with a smile

MOST DIFFICULT ODIAXERE CLUB OPPONENT -
Again Sergio, because it's so difficult to get passed those long legs

MOST MEMORABLE MATCH -
10th March 1971, European Cup Winner's Cup Quarter Final, Cardiff City 1 Real Madrid 0. More recently the infamous defeat of Leeds Utd (sorry John) in the FA Cup in 2002 and the 2003 Division Two play-off final that took place at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium

BIGGEST THRILL -
In footballing terms it is probably watching the mighty Bluebirds in the Premier League, FA Cup final and League Cup Final, somethings I never thought would happen in my lifetime. Also the experience of following Wales through the Euro 2016 tournament in France is something I will never forget

JOHN LENNON OR PAUL MCARTNEY -
Never saw Lennon live so probably McCartney, who I did see with Wings in 1975 and a couple of times since

OASIS OR BLUR -
Don't like either. Never really got the Britpop thing. More into soul and reggae

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT -
In football it was the 3-2 defeat to Blackpool, in the 2010 Championship play-off final. What made it worse is that we had to return to a hotel full of Blackpool fans...

Cuba

FAVOURITE FOOD -
Ham, egg & chips or Lancashire Hot Pot

FAVOURITE ACTOR -
James Gandolfini

BIGGEST INFLUENCE ON CAREER Delwyn Hamer, Manager of NatWest Hereford Branch in the mid 80s. In banking terms he was years ahead of his time

BIGGEST DRAG IN SOCCER -
OK this is where the GOM kicks in.....diving, drawing a foul from an opponent, dissent, foul throws, feigning injury, goal kick rule changes, VAR, 'tippy-tappy' football and whatever happened to the obstruction rule?

WHAT ONE ITEM WOULD YOU TAKE WITH YOU TO A DESERT ISLAND -
Apart from my lovely wife, probably my Sony Walkman.
WHICH PERSON IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO MEET One of the two Michaels......Portillo or Palin
