TEAMtalk: How did you come to support your club and what are your favourite memories from your time as a fan?

Jamie: My step-dad got me into Man Utd when I was a kid and I’ve been labelled a glory hunter ever since. One of my fondest early memories was beating Arsenal at Old Trafford to end their “Invincibles” run. I thought Rooney was a God!


TEAMtalk: Who have been your biggest heroes during your time supporting the club?

Jamie: I was a huge fan of Van Nistelrooy back in the day. He seemed to never run but always bagged a goal. Life Goals. Although it’s blasphemy now, I loved Tevez as well. Just seemed like he was always running and chasing back.


TEAMtalk: What do you make of the current team? What are your hopes for the (rest of the) season?

Jamie: At the moment I’m just waiting for the board to either back Mourinho or sack him. At the moment we’re stuck in a limbo where the squad depth isn’t good enough because we’ve blown huge amounts of money of big signings that were probably not essential at the time.


TEAMtalk: Everyone has a soft spot for another team. Who’s yours and why?

Jamie: I like Fulham a lot. Whenever I’ve been to Craven Cottage it’s been a pretty relaxed day. Even the diehards are pretty relaxed. None of these testosterone filled shouting fights.



TEAMtalk: What’s going on with the band/for you as an artist at the moment?

Jamie: We’re currently on an EU tour with Ash for the month. Then gearing up to release our debut album “Be Content” on March 8.
