Has to be Jake Livermore, now scoring for fun with Hull. My mate snorted when he heard he was my hero, but I said that Livermore was not to be sniffed at.

Gareth Southgate was mine :/ because I never got to watch football when I was a kid until Euro 96 and he represented Villa... He followed it up with some great Pizza adverts.

Duncan Ferguson for me. The man could win games on his own when in the mood

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.

Got into football in 2002. The 2002 World Cup was the first football I properly watched and I went around telling everyone that I was an England fan and that I didn't support anyone else. So my first hero was Michael Owen and that moved onto Thierry Henry when I got into football properly when I was 10 in 2004.

Eric Cantona for me, as my dad is a United fan so I obviously grew up watching him on the telly.

Either Kevin Keen or Mark Robson. Had some great wide play in the 1992/3 promotion season.

Bryan Robson for me. When people talk about great players he's massively underrated
