Everyone goes on about fans hating other clubs, is it the same for players when you face some sides?

Mark Clark, Leeds

As an ex-Aston Villa player I’ve never liked Birmingham City – even now I don’t!

When I played, it was more the club than the particular players and yes, I do understand the feelings of Villa supporters because of Alex McLeish coming across the city. My father-in-law, a lifelong Villa fan, says there has been a big loss in support.

When I was playing, we had some lads who went from Villa to Blues and if we were playing against them it wasn’t a case of saying: ‘Sod you, I’m not going to speak to you ever again.’ They were my mates but during derbies you kicked lumps out of each other!

At Leeds, I’ve got to say I didn’t like Millwall and their crowd were just a bunch of animals!
