VIDEO: Liverpool loanee Lloyd Jones answers fans' questions

15 January 2015

Cheltenham Town's on-loan defender from Liverpool Lloyd Jones answers questions from Cheltenham Town fans: 

Which player or players have given you the most advice since you came to Cheltenham Town?

At the moment, the skipper Troy Brown and Matty Richards, who helped me through against Oxford when I got booked early on, telling me to stay on my feet.

Which team did you support growing up?

Plymouth Argyle, but my second team was Liverpool funnily enough because my brothers supported them, so it runs in the family.

Who is your best friend in football?

I’d say Jordan Ibe, who is on loan at Derby County, and Ryan McLoughlin.

What are your initial impressions of League Two football and how does it compare to Under-21s?

Physically it’s a lot harder. If you give the ball away, you expect to be defending very quickly, with the ball going over your head. But I like it because it’s a new challenge. Under-21s football is a lot more on the floor, but I am so happy to be playing Saturday football.

What’s your favourite film?

Wolf of Wall Street.

Do you play any other sports other than football, for fun?

I like rugby and basketball.

Who is the best player you’ve played with?

I have trained with Steven Gerrard, but in a game I’d say Martin Škrtel, who was fantastic to play with. We played together in pre-season away at Brondby.

Who is the best player in the world at the moment?

Definitely Cristiano Ronaldo.

Who do you think is the best centre-half in the world at the moment?

My favourite is Sergio Ramos, but I’d say Thiago Silva is up there as well.

What’s your favourite match played in so far?

I’d say occasion wise, one of the pre-season friendlies for Liverpool’s first team. For the Under-21s, we went to Chelsea last year and ground out a 1-0 win. I’d also say the win at Oxford on my Cheltenham debut.

Who is the toughest player you’ve faced so far?

A guy from Sporting Lisbon called Carlos Mane. He had the better of me last season, but it won’t happen again!

Can you play in any other positions other than centre-half?

I played right-back for Wales youth a few times, but really I am just a central defender.

What is your favourite box set at the moment?

I am on Suits at the moment, having previously enjoyed Breaking Bad and Prison Break. 

Would you rather block a potentially match winning goal, or score a match winning goal?

I’d rather make the block to help us grind out a result!

What’s your perfect Sunday?

After a game I like lying in bed, watching Suits and relaxing, maybe have a go on the PS4 with my mates, chilling out.

Do you play FIFA ’15?

Yes I do. I am on NBA at the moment, but FIFA is my all-time favourite game. Jack Dunn is probably the best of us three Liverpool lads here on loan, but I am definitely second!

How pleased have you been with your performances for Cheltenham Town so far?

I think I’ve had two good games so far. My debut was tough, getting to grips with things. I know it was a poor result at Hartlepool, but I thought I did okay.

How much are you looking forward to your home debut against Morecambe?

Yes I have been looking forward to it a lot. I want to show the fans what I am all about and what I can do on the pitch. Hopefully we can get another three points and get up the table. 

What attracted you to come to Cheltenham on loan?

First team football and I knew the manager was good with young players – Alex (Inglethorpe) bigged him up to us.

What went wrong at Hartlepool last week?

Conditions and pitch were horrible, but it’s no excuse. They were better at second balls and picked up more.

What is your ambition in football?

To win as many trophies as I can!
