On Tuesday we have an ex centre half who was signed by Steve Bruce and on the Fan cam two people who work for West Midlands Police Football unit.
Special Guest this week
Our guest this week is Martin “Tiny” Taylor. Born in Ashington 9th November 1979, he started his footballing days playing at Cramlington Juniors before signing for Blackburn Rovers. In 1997 he signed his first full contract and went on to make over 350 professional appearances.
During his initial years, loans at Darlington and Stockport were completed in order to gain game time and build confidence. During 2002, he went on to play in all League Cup games and ending with a win over Spurs. The following couple of seasons he was being primed as a replacement for Henning Berg however this didn’t work out. In 2004 Rovers accepted a £1.25 Million bid from Blues.
Brought to Birmingham after recommendations from David Dunn and Damien Johnson, Martin was known for his composure. His Blues debut was during a 3-0 win over Everton and then in his next game went on to score his 1st goal in a Blues shirt. Martin went onto make 99 appearances for Blues before moving to Norwich on loan and then permanently to Watford. One further permanent move was completed to Sheffield Wednesday before retiring after a loan move to Brentford in 2013.
Leighton Webster Fan Cam
This week on the Fan Cam we have two guests. Colin Barlow and Stuart Ward from the WMP football unit join us to discuss the fantastic work they complete. We have asked the normal questions to Colin as Stuart is actually a Baggies Fan ( Not his fault :-0). The guys are joining us to talk about the great work they complete and you can read more about this in our latest article https://tiltontalk.com/a-catch-up-with-our-friends-at-west-midlands-police-force-football-unit
What was your first game ?
I remember it was a midweek game very early 80’s under the floodlights at St Andrews vs Ipswich Town- September 1981 and it ended 1-1, went with my old man
Who has been your favourite player ?
I have seen many great players over the years but for me it has to be Christophe Dugarry – He was different class, the back heel at Charlton away, his overall performance at home to Southampton and Liverpool.
Who is your favourite manager ?
Barry Fry, his whole charisma, he had a bond with the fans, him running up and down the touchline when Blues scored and he had a fantastic squad when they won the double. I never missed a game home or away that season.
What’s your Favourite game ?
This was a tough choice. It has to be Villa in the first season in the Premier League, very hard to choose between the home and the away game, probably the away game shades it for me.
What’s your favourite Pie ?
Sorry Nick but again I have to agree with other fans and say it has to be the Chicken Balti
Tuesday night is going to be another great show and we are all looking forward to it
