The ever lovely Lisa Smith has an interview with Carlos Cuellar in the Mercury online today. The Spanish central defender says he won't read the papers after games as only one persons opinion matters, the gaffers. 'I am not worried about what the newspapers say about me. I just worry about what the gaffer says. It is his opinion that really matters.' Adding, 'There is so much news about transfers and players and I don’t like it. Even when we win or when we lose I don’t like to read it.' Oh and he says his taste in reading is more like Mens Health and the great GQ (subscribed to it for years, really is a cut above most mags!)
