Every week on www.finnharps.com in association with the main club sponsor McGETTIGANS we will invite a Harps supporter and a Harps player to share their wisdom on the burning sporting and world issues.

We also ask them to give their predictions on the weekends sporting fixtures. This week’s head to head is Harps legend and current captain Kevin McHugh versus 12 year old Harps fanatic Christian Dullaghan from Ballybofey.

Harps Captain Kevin McHugh

Harps Supporter Christian Dullaghan

CHRISTIAN DULLAGHAN

1) Which Finn Harps Jersey is your favourite of all time?

O Neills 99 Cup Final jersey…

2) Which League of Ireland player from another club do you most admire?

Owen Heary, for his consistency alone. It’s easy to have 1 good season not so easy to have 10-12 great seasons. Also, Mark Farren and Gary O Neill to get a special mention, coming back from a serious illness to play again takes some guts and mental strength.

 

3) What is your favourite Film and why?

The Gladiator, faultless film.

4) What other sport do you most enjoy watching and who is your favourite sports star outside of football?

Like to watch and play Golf. Miguel Ángel Jiménez, great character.

5) If you are in an argument with a woman, should you a) Argue your case? b) Just stay quiet and nod your head? c) Admit she was right all along and apologise for wasting her time?

A. If they want equality, they need to be shown how to argue like a man :-> 

6) Who should Man UTD choose as David Moyes successor?

I’d let Fergie have a 2nd go, enjoying watching the “model” club mess things up on and off the pitch. Arrogance personified.

 

 

7) If you had a time machine , where and when would you go back to?

In a Harps context, I’d go back and play with Brendan Bradley, Con Mc Laughlin and Speakie in their prime… all great players and great fella’s as well.

Otherwise, I’d love to have seen George Best in his hay day live.

8) Which Teams do you think will win the SSE Airtricity Premier Divison, the EPL and the Champion league?

Cork / Liverpool / Real Madrid

 

9) Favourite away ground?

Turner’s Cross

10) What can you cook?

Spag Bol…

11) Is there a television programme you just cannot miss?

True Detective, some show.

12) Have you one idea that would add to the matchnight experience at Finn Park?

Invite 3/4 players from a Donegal club side each week for cross bar challenge to try and win a set of jerseys for their club…

13) What is your favourite football memory?

Winning the League in 2004 in a packed FP

14) What four teams will reach the World Cup semi-finals and who will win it?

Brazil / Uruguay / Spain / Argentina and Brazil to take home advantage.

15) What is the best thing about Finn Harps?

It’s hard to put my finger on it, think it’s a Donegal thing really, people love their soccer in this county and take a lot of pride from Harps playing in a national competition. Past players always have good things to say about their time at FP and always look out for results, think that says it all really.

1) Which Finn Harps Jersey is your favourite of all time?

Probably the one that we wore when we won the League in 2004 or the black one.

2) Which League of Ireland player from another club do you most admire?

I think it has to be Ciaran Gallagher as he was a good Harps player.

3) What is your favourite Film and why?

Would have to say Stand By Me as it is one of the all time greats.

4) What other sport do you most enjoy watching and who is your favourite sports star outside of football?

Boxing. Jason Quigley.

5) If you are in an argument with a woman, should you a) Argue your case? b) Just stay quiet and nod your head? c) Admit she was right all along and apologise for wasting her time?

C.

6) Who should Man UTD choose as David Moyes successor?

Roddy Collins 🙂

7) If you had a time machine , where and when would you go back to?

Finn Park 2004. I have watched the League winning season on DVD 100s of times.

8) Which Teams do you think will win the SSE Airtricity Premier Divison, the EPL and the Champion league?

Cork, Liverpool and Bayern Munich

9) Favourite away ground?

The Brandywell – just for the derby atmosphere.

10) What can you cook?

Nothing, unless your looking for burnt pancakes.

11) Is there a television programme you just cannot miss?

Match of the Day and A League of Their Own.

12) Have you one idea that would add to the matchnight experience at Finn Park?

More fans, more noise, more flags and more colour.

Doing mascot for the first time in Finn Park. I ran out with Eloka.

Christian doing mascot in 2007 aged 5. Pictured with Johnny Minnock and Eloka Asokuh

Supporting your local club and knowing the boys from the team.
