Making his way up from the youth team in Leeds United’s Premier League days, attacking midfielder Simon Johnson witnessed an interesting mix of music favoured by some of his big name teammates.
In his playing days Chris Bart-Williams was part of an era for Sheffield Wednesday which fans still remember very fondly, although his musical taste didn’t quite have such pride of place in the dressing room at Hillsborough.
Although Nottingham-born, former defender Michael Johnson represented the nation of his heritage, Jamaica, during an 18-year career and he believes the country’s renowned love for music is unrivalled.
As the 18-year-old in 2002 who scored the winning penalty to secure Birmingham City’s promotion to the Premier League, Darren Carter has taken music with him throughout a career which had such a soundtrack-worthy beginning.
In 1997, Brazilian stars Juninho and Emerson helped Bryan Robson’s Middlesbrough side to two cup finals, leaving a lasting impression along the way on the local lad in goal, Ben Roberts.
