‘Selling him was the start of the demise of Coventry City’

first_img1 Each week a leading band or musician takes our Starting XI Q&A. This week, it’s the turn of The Enemy’s bass player, Andy Hopkins…Who would be the most rock ‘n’ roll signing your club could make?Difficult one as there aren’t as many characters in the game as there used to be. I would say someone like Zlatan because he literally smokes a cigar when he plays. An absolute baller!!!If your club was a song or a lyric, what would it be?My club is Coventry City, so over the last few years probably Status Quo’s ‘down, down, deeper and down’. Haha! Lately, though, Tony Mowbray has got them firing so maybe ‘The Only Way Is Up’ by Yazz. Old skool tunes but the sentiments are bang on.Which football stadium would you most like to play a gig at (that’s not your club’s home ground)?I always hear bands like Oasis, who have youred South America. saying those stadiums are insane. Having seen Boca Juniors games over there and how mad the fans are, let’s dip out toe in there and do a show!Which footballer has the most potential to be a rock star?Leighton Baines is having himself for that. He’s got good taste in tunes and to be fair he rocked the barnet for a bit, too. I will give him the title for now.Brit award or Premier League trophy?Difficult one. I will have to say Brit Award as it’s  more realistic!When you were a kid, which football and music posters did you have on your wall?All Coventry City stuff. Music posters, I had Blink 182, The Clash and Oasis stuff.Elvis was the king of rock ‘n’ roll, Michael Jackson the king of pop… Who’s the king of football?I think it’s impossible to pick one, isn’t it? If you look at Man United, who dominated British football in my childhood years, Eric Cantona was the catalyst, wasn’t he? And they call him King Eric. He had the lot. And he was madder than a box of frogs!If you were in charge of your club’s dressing room stereo, what tunes would you put on before a big game and why?I would put ‘Definitely Maybe’ by Oasis on full volume and challenge any man not to let that record stir some sort of passion in their bones!Which signing got you most excited and which player’s departure broke your heart?When Coventry signed Robbie Keane I was incredibly excited. I felt like we could go to another level at that point. When we sold Dion Dublin it was a very sad day for he club, and ultimately what turned out to be start of the demise of Coventry City..Which footballer would you refuse complimentary tickets to one of your gigs?Nicky Summerbee for breaking Steve Frogatt’s leg and ultimately finishing his career. Steve Frogatt is a lovely guy, so Nicky…  YOU’RE BARRED!What’s the best/worst football song ever recorded?Best: New Order – World In Motion. Worst: Dizzee Rascal and James Corden – Shout Out For EnglandThe Enemy release title track ‘It’s Automatic’ from their upcoming album of the same name. Both will be released on October 9. Watch the video for ‘It’s Automatic’ here The Enemy last_img read more
