TEAMtalk: How did you come to support your club and what are your favourite memories from your time as a fan?
Tom: I started supporting Manchester United because my cousins in Ireland supported them. Since the day I was born I was in a United baby grow. My favourite moments and earliest memories are watching Paul Scholes & Ryan Giggs. I just fell in love with both of them and when Ronaldo came to United, seeing this young player boss the line and using tricks that I hadn’t really seen being used in the Prem before…
TEAMtalk: Who have been your biggest heroes during your time supporting the club?
Tom: Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Rooney, Beckham
TEAMtalk: What do you make of the current team? What are your hopes for the rest of the season?
Tom: Currently it’s OK, not brilliant but OK. I think defensively we’re pretty all over the place. I think we need a Nemanja Vidic character to boss the back four. For the rest of the season I’d like to stay second in the table and win the FA Cup.
TEAMtalk: Everyone has a soft spot for another team. Who’s yours and why?
Tom: My soft spot would probably be Crystal Palace. For years when I was younger I used to go with my friend to Selhurst Park and the atmosphere inside that stadium is always so good.
TEAMtalk: What’s going on with the band/for you as an artist at the moment?
Tom: Right now I’m about to go on a UK tour which I’m buzzing for. My album is out in a few months and I’ve just announced a Brixton Academy show on the 16th October so things are really good at the moment, I can’t complain and I’m so excited!
