On the Spot

On the Spot…with Josh Carson

FANS’ favourite Josh Carson is next up on our popular ‘On the Spot’ series as the midfielder answers a series of different questions…

1. Occupation?

Semi-professional footballer.

2. Favourite player of all time?

Cristiano Ronaldo.

3. Favourite meal?

Sirloin steak (medium rare), chips, onion rings, tobacco onions and pepper sauce.

4. Pre-match breakfast?

It varies, but recently I had scrambled eggs, bacon, beans and toast.

5. Any lucky traditions?

No, not really.

6. PS4 or Xbox?


7. What teams do you support?

Manchester United and Rangers.

8. Three guests for a dinner – dead or alive – who do you pick and why?

George Best – he is a legend and he would have a lot of good stories.

Roy Keane – he is controversial and it would be nice to hear about his opinions on VAR.

Mike Tyson – he is an animal and another controversial character.

9. Favourite movie?

Hangover (the first one) or Step Brothers.

10. Your favourite moment as a Coleraine player?

Although I wasn’t involved in the final, my favourite moment was winning the Irish Cup as we had a phenomenal season and we deserved to win a trophy.

11. If you were deserted on an island, which Coleraine player would you choose to be with and why?

Aaron Traynor – he’s always talking, he would keep you alive and you certainly wouldn’t be bored. Don’t know how the pair of us would survive without food, but we get on like a house on fire.

12. Who is your room mate on European trips?

Aaron Traynor – it’s good but you sometimes struggle to get to sleep.

13. If you could be a Coleraine player for one day who would it be and why?

Steven Douglas – I would love to be inside his head for a day to see what madness goes through it.

14. What other sports do you play?

I tried my hand at golf but I didn’t have the patience or temperament to play at a decent level.

15. Who is your best mate at the club?

I have loads of friends at the club and it’s difficult to pin-point one. I travel up and down the road with Aaron Traynor, the first player to message me when I was signed was Lyndon Kane, but there’s also Adam Mullan, Ian Parkhill, James McLaughlin, big Skinner, Stevie O’Donnell and Stevie Lowry.

16. What was it like representing Northern Ireland at senior level?

The Holland game sticks out as it was an unbelievable experience playing against such high quality opposition. Me and Sammy Clingan played central midfield that night and we were up against the likes of Nigel de Jong, Mark van Bommel and Wesley Sneijder.

17. Your favourite ground you played at during your spell in England?

I was on the bench against Arsenal in the Carling Cup, but unfortunately I didn’t make an appearance at The Emirates. Therefore, the best ground I played at was Villa Park and it’s a fantastic stadium.
