The Moors Index: James Curtis

James Curtis is next to try his hand at The Moors Index, so we’ve had the skipper answer a selection of our random questions and try to entertain us with his answers! Let’s see how he got on…

6 How do you like to celebrate a good win?

Haha, I thought you were going to ask me how I like to celebrate after a goal, and I couldn’t tell you! After a good win though – just get a few good songs on in the changing rooms so we can have a bit dance around, take the Mick out of a few people and then get back in the Clubhouse for a few pints. I am no party animal anymore so I would probably go home and have a few drinks with the missus.

40 What would be your specialist subject on Mastermind?

Oh no, honestly, I am absolutely terrible at quizzes. I don’t even think there is anything I could pick for this. I don’t know if it’s to do with my memory going now I’m 40 but the lads will be there reeling off line after line from different films and I am just wondering how they remember them all. What about the lyrics to Club Tropicana? I can tell you all of them!

100 If you could be an animal for the day, which one would you be?

Well, I will take a break from being a giraffe, eh? I would like to be able to run fast, you know? So maybe like a cheetah! Aye, I have maybe been a bit slow over the years so I would really like to win a race for a change so being a cheetah would be ideal for that, I imagine.

4 If you wrote your autobiography what would you call it?

Haha, this is a tricky one. It would probably have to have something to do with a carrot because the lads love calling me carrot due to my ginger hair. What about just ‘The Life & Times of the Tall Carrot’? Haha. I think that’s a good title.

29 If you won the lottery, what would you buy first?

It would probably have to be a new car, I would say. I know that’s probably an obvious one for this question. I am not even massively into cars really, but I would buy a nice one and then probably have a nice holiday somewhere. And not a holiday village with the kids, somewhere I want to go instead! Haha!

17 Did you pass your driving test first time?

Yeah, easy. I am an all-rounder, aren’t I? Ha! I think it was seven minor faults at the time, but I did it easy. Not like young Charlie Watt who reckoned he had one driving lesson and passed his test – I am not having that!

53 Who would you call first in an emergency?

It would have to be my wife. I’m not sure she’d be able to sort everything out, but I would definitely ring her first – just to let her know, and then I would ring someone else, like my dad! Haha!

76 Did you ever star in the school play?

Do you know what, I did! I have a photo at home still because I was ‘The Wind’. I can’t even remember what the play was, but my mam had me dressed up in full on white vest and tights and some white crepe paper. I didn’t have a speaking part, I just had to run around as if I was the wind! I looked class and that’s probably the best role I’ve ever had!

96 Which of the squad would you let date your little sister?

Absolutely none of them!! Well, only my mate, Glen Taylor. He would be okay, but it would still be wrong, like. The rest of them – no chance! What a horrible bunch! Haha!
