In this weeks interview we are talking to Brede Skahjem Tokvam, a 20 year old Leeds United fan from Oslo, Norway who is currently studying "Coaching and Sport Psychology" at the Norwegian School of Sport Science.
How long have you supported Leeds?
All my life, basically, as I can remember. My father did a great job providing me with new shirts, both birthday and Christmas! As the die hard Leeds fan he is, there was no way his son was gonna grow up supporting the scum.
What is your favourite memory?
Easy; Bristol Rovers at ER, 8.may, 2010! I was not there, but me and my dad watched it on the TV at home. The worst and best 90 minutes of my life!
Favourite player past and present?
Despite being too young to remember the Revie era, I have to say King Billy Bremner! I've read so many books and watched so many movies and clips about that team, and his never-say-die-attitude, leadership and of course skills does not stand back to any great captain and player in the history of football! Rest in peace, Billy! ..
Of the current players it's Tom Lees for me. Local lad, commited, down-to-earth, performing week-in-week-out. Great so see him for Stuart Pearce's U21's!
If you could bring one player from any era back to the club, who would it be and why?
I think we're quite thin up front, so the Sniffer, Alan Clarke would've been great to see in the 11! Great finisher with both feet and also a great header of the ball.. Who can forget his diving header in the 72 FA cup final?
Best goal scored by a Leeds player?
Tony Yeboah - Liverpool.. No doubt
What are your thoughts on the potential takeover? Will it happen and how important do you think it will be?
As soon as possible, so we can focus on the most important thing, the on-field-action. I'm sick of reading the TOMA-post on Waccoe and the takeover-thread on the Norwegian Leeds page, www.leedsunited.no ! I think it will happen yes, and its gonna be important so Mr.Warnock can bolster his squad in January!
What are your thoughts on LUST and what they have done so far?
I think their meaning is very good, and I appreciate the way they try to keep us informed at all times. I hope, in the future, that they can work closer with the club and its new owners, to avoid misunderstandings like the one with David Haigh last week.
Which player has impressed you most this season?
Sam Byram! Wow - that boy's got potential! Hope Elland Road is where he'll stay, and where he'll develop! Stay away, Norwich!
Who would you like to see us bring in on loan?
A striker with the eye for goal, and a proven record of course. I'd say Jermaine Beckford a month a go, but then he went to Grayson.. I have no specific and realistic players I can think of, sorry.
If the takeover is completed, which two players would you like to see join us in January?
James Milner & Aaron Lennon! As if...
How would you describe our current team?
Vulnarable, but solid! Our starting 11 is good and can, on its day, beat any team in the league. But the depth of the squad isn't as good as I'd hoped before the season. I'm looking forward to seeing Hall in action if he comes off the bench against Sheff Wed. Might be a good addition to our squad!
Which game are you most looking forward to this season?
Peterborough and Blackpool at home, February 16th and 19th, when I'll be there with my dad!
Score predictions for the Sheffield Wed and Charlton games?
Sheff Wed 1-3 Leeds United & Leeds United 2-0 Charlton
Anything else you would like to add?
Marching on Together - Norwegian Whites
