For Dave, it's the togetherness that the game brings between supporters that's incredible. This can certainly be felt, as he follows his beloved Stoke City home and away.
Nothing compares to following your team, whether that be the 10 or so minute journey to The Brit for a home game, or a 500 mile round trip to Bournemouth on a Tuesday night.
The togetherness that the game brings between supporters is incredible, as for just 90 minutes, everyone forgets about life’s problems and focuses on one thing, football.
What is your favourite Copa90 video and why?
The Eurofan Signature Series Review episode, purely just for the moment where Tom Deacon gets absolutely rinsed by Thierry Henry.
What is the best football game you have seen and why?
The FA Cup semi-final against Bolton in 2011. It was my first time at Wembley following Stoke and we went into the game as slight underdogs against a slowly deteriorating Bolton side. The game however, finished as a 5-0 Stoke victory with even the ‘laziest man in football’, Kenwyne Jones, getting on the scoresheet.
A day I’ll never forget.
What is your favourite football snack?
There are two essential snacks for me when it comes to a match day.
Firstly, the morning has to start with oatcakes. A Staffordshire delicacy with my personal favourite fillings of cheese and bacon, they’re a perfect way to start any match day.
Once I’m at the ground, it’s a Wright’s chicken Balti pie and a Bovril.
Who is your footballing idol?
Ricardo Fuller. A pivotal figure in our promotion campaign and early Premier League days providing vital goals as well as the occasional moment of madness.
