#ASKONEILL

4 November 2014

Thanks for all your questions for Luke O'Neill via Facebook, Twitter and email. Here is the defender's answers:

@DanielHenry91 – Who do you call before and after a game?
I call my missus and my dad after a game. I know Daniel and he wants me to say him but I’ll tell him now that I’m not gonna (laughs).

@Blackers93 – Do you think there’s a chance of you making a permanent move to the Iron?
I don’t know really, I’m obviously contracted to Burnley at the minute and want to fight for my place there but I’m enjoying my time here. I just want to get some games at the minute and that’s what I’m doing but I guess you never know what can happen in the future.

Nobby Hillier – Do you think your performance at Gillingham was your best so far?
I would say that the Gillingham game and Coventry at home are probably the pick of the bunch so far since I’ve been here. It was a really good display from the lads, we were very clinical in front of goal so yeah, it’s definitely up there.

Aron Montford – Are you into video games or anything like that? 
I am, yeah, I’ve just bought a PS4 so I’m on that quite a bit at the moment. I’m mainly playing FIFA 15 on there since I got it so that’s definitely giving me a bit of entertainment. 

Adam Tomlinson – What was it like in Leicester City’s youth team when you were growing up?
It was hard but it was a very good experience and a learning curve. I got to grow up with some really good, really talented players that play in the Premier League right now so it was definitely something that I think was vital for me.

James Willis – Are you into any sports other than football?
Yeah, I’m sports mad really. I like a bit of golf, boxing and things like that and I’m even into things like go karting, which is great for a laugh with your mates.

Kevin Sutton – What’s the best and worst thing about being a professional footballer?
The best thing is definitely that is doing something that you love and enjoy for a living and there aren’t too many negatives for me personally but I suppose the worst is when you lose really. That’s not a good feeling for a footballer.

Archie Lee – What do you think of Facebook and Twitter?
I think they’re both great and I use both. You’ve obviously got to watch what you say a bit when you’re a footballer in particular because you can get in trouble and we’ve seen that plenty of times, especially on Twitter but yeah, I think if you use them correctly then they’re great to keep in touch with friends, players and fans.

Pete Johnson – What’s your routine on a matchday?
I don’t really do anything special to be honest. On a matchday, I get up, eat some cereal and the like just like anybody does and after that, I just try to get in the zone and focus on the game really and how we’re gonna get three points on the day.

Sue North – What type of music are you into?
I’m into a lot of stuff really but on the whole, R&B is probably what I would say that I like the most. I’m into the likes of Usher and Drake. I went to see Drake live a few years ago and would definitely recommend going to see him to people. He was brilliant.
  
Richard Thomas – How important do you think that loan spells are to young players?
I think they can be really important to be honest. You’ve seen Callum (Howe) go out on loan, it’s a good experience for him and when I was at Leicester I had a few loan moves too. I went to Tranmere, I went to Kettering and it really does help to play men’s football rather than playing reserve games and Under 21 football, it’s a complete step up, especially when it comes to the physical side of the game.

Rich Brown – How do you relax?
I just relax my being with my little daughter really in between training and matches. That’s the main thing that I’d say I do really.

Steve Simpson - Do you plan on growing a moustache for Movember over the coming month?
I’d say possibly, it’s not something that I’ve really thought about it to be honest but yeah, I guess I can’t rule it out and we’ll see if any of the other lads decide to do it.

Michelle Carter - How are you finding Scunthorpe so far?
It’s great, I’ve not really been into the town centre because I obviously don’t live here but  it’s really good here and I’m enjoying it. It’s a great club and a great setup and all of the lads have made me feel welcome.  

Liam Weathers – Who is the toughest player you’ve played against so far in your career?
That’d be Gael Kakuta when I was at Leicester City back when I was younger. He’s always very tricky to play against and I’ve come up against him quite a few times at club level and also at international level with the England Under 19’s when he was playing for France.
