VIDEO: Liverpool loanee Jack Dunn answers questions from the fans

8 January 2015

Cheltenham Town's on-loan striker from Liverpool Jack Dunn answers questions from the fans

From Solihullkev:

Describe the feeling when you scored your first league goal?

Really happy. It got us on level terms and on a bit of a roll. We started to control the game and it gave everyone a lift. Personally it was a great achievement.

What do you consider the strongest aspects of your game?

I think my runs in behind. I am quite quick and smart, so I create that little space of three yards to make runs in behind and my speed is one of my main attributes. 

What areas of your game do you consider you most have to develop?

Definitely, I am only a rookie in the game of football and I have plenty more years to keep learning. I need to work on everything not just my finishing, but my hold up play and my passing too.

From Longmover:

What’s the biggest difference between the standard you have been playing and League Two?

I’d say the physicality. In Under-21s you are playing against lads your age. Playing against men is a more physical game, so I’d say that.

From CS85:

If all goes well during this month would you be happy to stay on loan for the rest of the season?

I am just concentrating on the next few games ahead because we have four big ones that hopefully we can win. The plan is to get these out of the way, go back, reassess and go from there.

From NorthCotRobin:

Has anyone in particular impressed you in training at Cheltenham?

All the lads have. We train at match tempo, with a really high intensity and not one of them has shown a bad attitude. Everyone has a winning mentality and while nobody has stood out in particular, everyone has been impressive.

From London Exile:

Are you a red or blue boyhood fan?

Definitely a red! It's been for a long time now because my dad used to take me when I was five or six.

Who was your idol growing up?

I have a few, but mainly Lionel Messi or Diego Maradona. I’ve read books about them and watched videos of them on YouTube over and over again and they are my main inspirations. Liverpool wise I’d say Robbie Fowler because he has taught me so much.

What were your first impressions of Cheltenham Town?

It’s been great so far, everyone has been welcoming, including all the lads and the gaffer have been very welcoming, so we have loved it so far.

From CTFCTweets:

Who is the best player in the world?

Lionel Messi.

Which player has given you the most advice?

Everyone really. Because I am new to League football, they’ve all been giving me advice on how to play and what to expect. They’ve all been helpful.

At what age did you join Liverpool?

I have been there since I was seven, but I signed at eight.

From Oli Fell:

How is life different in Cheltenham compared to a city?

It’s different and it’ll take some getting used to because I’ve always lived in Liverpool. It’s a nice change, not frantic or anything like that.

Can you ask Steven Gerrard to stay at Liverpool, please?

All my family and friends are devastated. Me personally I am too, but it’s a great opportunity for him to continue his career so I wish him all the best. It’s been an honour to train with him and learn from him because he's one of the world’s best players.

From Laurie Cleevely:

Who is the best player you’ve played alongside?

I've not played with Luis Suarez in a match, but I have in a training game, so if that counts it’d definitely be him.

From Matt Addinall

If you could partner Robbie Fowler, Luis Suarez or Michael Owen in attack, who would you choose and why?

I’d go with Robbie Fowler. We are both Toxteth boys, so the link up would be good! He comes in with Steve McManaman and Rob Jones, giving us tips. Robbie concentrates on the strikers and tells me how to finish and where to finish. He’s been really boss.
