Meet the family

Twenty questions to a 'Usual Suspect'


Real Name Paul Looby
Location Camberley
Occupation Own Audio Visual Company, Sports & Remedial Massage Therapist, Ageing Rocker

Movie(s) The Blues Brothers
TV Programme(s) Don't do TV
Book(s) Just finished The Last of the Irish Males by Joseph O'Connor. Side-splittingly funny.
Music Vast range from Irish folk, through the Moving Hearts thing to reasonably heavy rock, Linkin Park, Sum 41, Avril Lavigne, etc.
Radio Station(s) BBC London mostly. I'm a bit of a Danny Baker fan.
Food(s) Food generally. Never knowingly under-fed! So long as it is cooked well, it will be eaten well.
Drinks(s) Any selection from AG, red wine, white wine, lager, bitter, cider. Don't really do spirits but you get the drift. Ambition seriously exceeds ability these days though.
Place(s) to visit Riga, very interesting place. Being totally westernised, so worth a visit now, even if only for the Vernasache night club. It's awesome.
How long supporting LI? 3 years or so, complete newbie.
Best ever LI game (Excluding 2002 cup final) Any that we win but especially those that we win whilst playing well.
Favourite LI experience off pitch (Excluding 2002 cup final) I've never been on the pitch! (for the Pros anyway)
How did you start supporting LI? Armchair follower stirred into action by the Cup semi double header at the Madstad. The rest as they say ...
What are your non-rugby pastimes? You mean there's something outside rugby? What is it?
Any Irish connection? Yes, born in Tipperary (yes, I know!) moved to leafy Surrey in 1988, at the tender age of 21. Lured into lots of bad ways by English people!
Most likely to say? Mine's a pint!
What have you broken this time? (To my Clients, mostly)
Least likely to say? Come on you Quinsaaaaaaaa/Bath
Tell us something about you we don't know. I've never had a canary!
Used to race VW Beetles.
