Nick Evans

Nick EvansNick talks about mullets, quiffs and mohawks and why you’ll be hoping he never changes his boxers this season.






Name: Nick Evans
Age: 24
Height: 6’00” with a quiff
Previous clubs: South Park, Capel Wasps, Dorking FC, FC Dynamo.
How long have you played for Albion: Since August 08’.
Club you support: The mighty Crystal Palace.
Favourite food: Fillet Steak, Medium-rare or Sausages and Mash.
Favourite film: Scarface, Anchorman, Napoleon Dynamite
Favourite TV programme: Lost, Heroes, Peep Show, I’m Alan Partridge.
Favourite player: Ian Wright.
Player you are most like: Hmmm, tough one. I would’ve said a Gary Lineker type player (does nothing but pops up with a tap in the last minute) but sadly I’ve turned into an Alan Smith (plenty of effort but couldn’t hit a cows arse with a banjo) in recent months.
Heroes outside of football: Jeremy Clarkson or Will Ferrell.
Do you have any non Albion nicknames: Evvo originally enough, and also rooster for a while when I had a big blonde mullet and mo-hawk at uni that people said made me look like a chicken. Not a great look in hindsight.
Best subject at school: History.
Superstitions: If I play well on Sunday I try to ensure I am wearing the same boxers the next week. This was derived from a similar technique when out on the pull in my singleton days which proved equally unsuccessful. I’m thinking of scrapping it to be honest.
Who is the UK’s hardest TV presenter? Danny ‘Football Factories’ Dyer, Ross ‘on Gangs’ Kemp, Vinnie ‘Toughest Cops’ Jones, or Chris ‘Elite World Cops’ Ryan: What a ridiculous question. I’m not sure, but I would like the other three to gang up and kick seven shades of shit out of Danny Dyer.
Career highlight: Either winning a county cup at U14 level or scoring a header from a corner a couple of years ago, something I hadn’t done before and won’t likely do again since as I am awful in the air.
Favourite music: I don’t claim to be cool musically and am happy listening to anything from funky house to indie. I’m partial to a bit of inferno’s style cheese when plastered on a night out too.
Other job: Recruitment Consultant.
How do you psyche yourself up for Albion games: By waking up late and having to run to the common to avoid a Jade Barker bollocking.
If you had a sister, which Albiones would you not you let her date and why: Although he’s probably one of the more gentlemanly lads in the team it would have to be Will, purely as he is a Brighton fan and my family are all palace so it would cause severe family division.
Best piece of footballing advice: Don’t be afraid to run at players.
Favourite football game of all-time: Crystal Palace 4-3 Liverpool in the FA Cup semi final in 1990. Generally accepted as the best semi final of all time. They beat us 9-0 earlier in the season and nobody (especially the scousers) expected we would beat them.
Favourite drink: Generally anything with Caffeine or Alcohol in.
Pre-match meal: A banana and a cup of coffee if I’ve woken up on time.
Worst football pundit: I hate Andy Gray. Who died and made him the ultimate authority on all things football? He epitomises everything that’s wrong with the Sky-driven premier league billionaires club.
Most annoying Southern Sunday ref: I’m not familiar with all the refs yet, but I don’t like the guy that looks like he sleeps under a bridge and bottled it in the Nolans game when they were kicking us to pieces earlier this season.
Pin-up: Keeley Hazel, Kelly brook, Katie Perry and my girlfriend Sophie.
Pick your all-time greatest team: Banks, Roberto Carlos, Moore, Beckenbauer, Baresi, Rivaldo, Zidanne, Maradonna, C. Ronaldo, Van Basten, Ian Wright
