I'm a Cockney Malteser 👑
Just finished a Q&A session with Ledley, again organised by the Yorkshire Supporters' Club.
People dialed in from all over - Romford (!), Amsterdam, Cleveland, Boston and somewhere else in the USA, and Malta. The lady in Amsterdam is Les Bennett's great-niece (he played in the '51 side). Also, the owners (Charlie and his son) of the Cyprus flag that we see at The Lane participated.
We were advised only to ask questions on his career, so I asked him who his favourite partner at the back was - I loved that he said Daws, Ledley said that he really cared about the Club and he gave his all in every game.
He thought his best manager was Glen Hoddle in terms of tactics and ideas, but most enjoyed playing in Harry's side. His best game was the Chelsea final. Most embarrassing game was the Man City cup game, which we lost at home after being 3-0 up. Best player he played with at Spurs - Gareth Bale. Best player with England - Gerrard.
Someone mentioned that there is a statue of Ledley in Mile End Park, something that I will have to go and find when lockdown over.
Someone else who dialed in was a young boy called George Hearson. He was a mascot when we played Newcastle in 2012, and he mentioned that he had just signed up with Bradford academy, the club that Ledley scored the fastest goal against. He's a left back/wing back, wouldn't it be funny if he ended up playing for us - it's his ambition. Ledley said that although he didn't really care about the record whilst he was playing, he enjoyed the attention once he retired, and was gutted when he lost it.
He mentioned that he was at home with a three and a five year old, who were running him ragged.
Great way to stay in touch with the Club during lockdown. I hope they do more.
