Play Your Cards Right

Posted on 27 October 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Kasey Keller pulls a seat around the card table for our Q&A feature 'Play Your Cards Right'.

What's it like being recognised?
Better than not being recognised, I guess. That's what people say. Don't take things for granted - if you have to sign 50 autographs, take it as sign of pride. The problem comes when people stop recognising you. Yes, it's nice - although it wasn't as nice after last weekend!

Who is the worst dresser at the club?
It's all relative. Clothes don't make the man!

What is the best concert you've been to?
Too many to count. AC/DC tonight might be. I was on the side of the stage at Metallica, which was impressive. Iron Maiden are always good. So many.

What would you be if you weren't a footballer?
Who knows. This is my 13th season. I wanted to be a professional athlete and it's tough to say. Would I have gone into the family business, agriculture? I doubt it.

What is your favourite aftershave?
Whatever my wife buys me.

What is the best film of all time?
It's hard to pick one. I enjoy horror films, action adventure, drama. Something the The Shawshank Redemption is a great film, The Green Mile and then through to the original Friday The 13th, Indiana Jones, Star Wars - I like films a lot and I'm a fan of different things.

Who would you most like to meet?
I always like to open up that question. If you could have a dinner party, who would you invite? I'd start with Jesus, Allah, put them all in one room together and sort this thing out once and for all and then people might stop killing each other over it.

What is the best trainer of all time?
Who cares? Whatever you like, whatever fits you the best.

What is your favourite holiday destination?
Hawaii. It has a bit of everything. Mountains, sea, beach, golf courses, weather. I've not been able to beat Hawaii.

What would you wear to a fancy dress party?
When I had long hair I went as Jesus. When I was at university, hadn't shaved for a while, had long hair, a couple of guys came up to me and said 'you look like Jesus'. I took it on from there.

Do you read magazines?
Metal Hammer and Kerrang.

Medals or money?
The thing is, medals aren't going to pay for your kids education. You have to find the balance between the two. I've never been motivated by money but over the last 10 years, if you haven't been at Arsenal or Manchester United, you haven't been chasing medals. It isn't your choice. Only a few players can choose to go to teams where you will definitely win medals. You have to be the best at what you do and hopefully you pick up a few medals along the way.

How is the golf going?
I'm breaking to many clubs! The five wood is rocking but I had to drop a few clubs off recently to mend a few shafts. I'm not too worried at the moment, I don't have the time to work at it.
