Player Of The Month May 2018
EVERY MONTH THE ARGYLE LEGENDS WEBSITE WILL FEATURE AN INTERVIEW WITH A PLAYER. THIS MONTH WE ASKED MAXIME BLANCHARD 20 QUESTIONS. READ HIS ANSWERS BELOW.
Q: What was your most memorable match?
A: League debut against Barnsley
Q: Who was the best Argyle player you played with?
A: Nicky Marker
Q: Who was your toughest opponent?
A: Tony Mowbray at Middlesbrough
Q: You must have an amusing story you could share with us about your time at Argyle?
A: Chester away, an argyle fan kneeing me in the private during my goal celebration. Still feel the pain.
Q: Now you are no longer playing football how do you occupy yourself?
A: Spending time with my family and watching lot’s of football on TV. C,mon the greens!
Q: Can you recall your most embarrassing moment?
A: Many, but too embarrassing to describe!!
Q: How has football changed over the years?
A: A lot, as everyone states, it’s now more about money and a lot of clubs are finding it hard to stay afloat. Also the top players are very high profile and have to live under a microscope much more than before, but the football’s still great. (hopefully they will clarify the phased off side rule)
Q: Who was the best manager you ever played under?
A: David Kemp – he gave the opportunity of a life time, and was always trying to help me develop.
Q: What was your pre-match routine? E.g. lucky item, superstitions.
A: Didn’t really have one, but following a good performance I used to try and follow the same routine, which could be things like eating the pre-match meal, or watching the same programme
Q: Do you keep in touch with any of your former Argyle teammates? If so, who?
A: Unfortunately not.
Q: Do you think PAFC will do well this season?
A: I hope so. The championship is only one league away from the Premiership! I’ve been in this position before as you well know. Hopefully they can get on a run and pull away from the relegation zone
Q: If you could choose any player in the world you would have liked to play with, who would it be?
Q: Do you follow Argyle’s progress or attend any of their matches?
A: Unfortunately I don’t attend any of the matches as yet, but definitely follow their progress.
Q: Do you now have a day job outside of football?
A: I work as a HR Manager for City & Islington College.
Q: What would be the highlight of your time at Argyle?
A: Crikey! honestly, the whole experience of venturing to a new place to play professional football, the fans, the people, the area. You tell your family stories about how nice it is in Plymouth, but they experienced it for themselves when we were invited to the Ipswich game.
THANK YOU FOR TAKING PART
