HELLO and welcome to another Big Interview! This time it’s with Mr Terrence Gibson.
Now, I know Terry well given that we have both covered Spanish football during our careers, with Terry having become a respected co-commentator for Sky Sports since his playing days ended. But I was delighted that, during the course of our chat, I was still able to learn from him.
For example, in Part One of this Big Interview, Terry tells me about what – or who – scared him most when he was coming through at Tottenham; he describes what it was like to play in the infamous ‘Friday kick ups’ at Spurs, brutal games which took the place the day before big first-team matches; and he speaks honestly about how it felt to leave the club he has always supported.
Terry is very, very funny, but there is still frustration in his voice as he recounts a trying time at Manchester United under Roy Atkinson and then Sir Alex Ferguson, a manager with whom Terry had a massive fall out before moving on to have success at Wimbledon.
This was fun to record and, I’m sure, will be entertaining to listen to. My conversation with Terry is free, with this month’s Big Interview with Jermain Defoe available exclusively at patreon.com/grahamhunter.
