#SydneyFanChat Transcript With Rhyan Grant


Fresh from inking a new deal, Sydney FC’s Rhyan Grant hosted the live Twitter chat today ahead of Saturday’s third instalment of the #SydneyDerby. During the forty five minutes we learnt how he’ll celebrate if he scores on the weekend, his favourite act at Listen Out and his preferences for a statue outside Allianz Stadium.

Joey Crews: Rhyan, if they built a statue of you outside Allianz Stadium, would you let The Cove design its haircut? Only if it’s the mop! #SydneyFanChat

Glen Buterol: Congrats on the new deal mate. What does Sebby think of your aspirations to make the RB spot your own? It’s always good to have competition for places & obviously Seb is a good mate but we’re both professionals. #SydneyFanChat

J: Hey Rhyan I’m going to try and win your charity shirt. Sitting here with my daughter in ICU at SCH atm  Good luck, it was great to see you guys last week! Hope all is well! #SydneyFanChat

skybluesamurai: Did Seba or you sign the extension first and did either of you have an influence on the other?  It was a 2 for 1 package 😉 #SydneyFanChat

Luke Glanville: Who has the best banter at sydney fc? Terry McFlynn for sure! #SydneyFanChat

SkyBlueSyd: Are there any odd superstitions any of the players have before each game? & good luck for the weekend  I don’t have any, but a few of the boys have the usual ones. #SydneyFanChat

Matt Coleman: Mate, when are you going to get the boys back together? #RGG  There’s still a small few that come to games. I always try to catch up with them after the match. #SydneyFanChat

jonathan zalunardo: Hey Rhyan, who was your favourite act at listen out last year? Chet Faker for sure! I’ve seen him live 3 times. Never disappoints! #SydneyFanChat

Marcus: Who do you dislike more, WSW or MV? Be honest, Seb was 😉  Wanderers. #SydneyFanChat

Jonathan Ilinkovski: Congratulations on your new contract! What’s your personal goal that you aim to achieve by the end of the season?  Thanks mate! Just looking to get back into the starting XI & stay injury free! #SydneyFanChat

Evan Sieff: Your mum sat with us in GA for the 3-2 derby – even had a photo after! Please tell her she’s welcome back in Bay29  That would have been a laugh, she’s quite vocal when watching. Even when I wasn’t playing! #SydneyFanChat

CHRISTOPHER: Hi Ryhan, who’s the toughest player you’ve played against? Marco Rojas was always difficult but I’m sure there’s others. #SydneyFanChat


The Iron Ghost: Does Nick Carle offer to take you to the tanning booth?  It’s all natural, but Sebba has been known to go a few times which I’ve declined. #SydneyFanChat

Marcus: Rhyan do you have aspirations to play overseas or would you like to stay a one club man?  If the opportunity came I’d love to try my luck but if I stay in the @ALeague it’s only @SydneyFC for me! #SydneyFanChat

James Stillone: We all know you have bad hair. Have you been offered any hair stylist sponsorships?  No, but I’m open if anyone wants to help me out. Hagi used to cut my hair when we lived together though. #SydneyFanChat

Marcus: We know u only score avg goals like last wk 😉 if u scored a similar one infront of the RBB this wkend how would u celebrate?  I’d forget the RBB and run straight to The Cove! #SydneyFanChat


Scott: Have you forgiven your parents for spelling your name so badly? It’s always a punish correcting people, but at least I’m a little different! #SydneyFanChat

Marcus: Who’s the clown in the dressing room and what’s the best prank played this season?  There’s always a few boys playing pranks. @IvanNecevski is always a suspect as well as a few other young boys! #SydneyFanChat

Graham Linton: Do you think you’ll surpass Terry in becoming the most capped player for Sydney FC?  That’ll be hard to do, but I’d love to try. Tezza is a Legend! #SydneyFanChat

Anthony Vescio: Hi Rhyan. What starter Pokemon did you choose?  I don’t remember, I couldn’t tell you, but I loved Onyx! #SydneyFanChat

YUMNA: Hi,Rhyan who was the best player you’ve ever played against..??  I was lucky enough to play against @Robbie9Fowler at Nth Qld Fury which was great cause I’m a @LFC fan! #SydneyFanChat


Simon: What are your thoughts on your song? do you ever have a sing a long with the cove? I love my song! I always sing along when warming up, hard not to! #SydneyFanChat

Jake Campbell: Rhyan, how on earth did u score THAT goal?!??!? Is it @CoreyGameiro coco pops? I’m still not sure, wasn’t @CoreyGameiro’s coco-pops though. Maybe I should have some to score a few more! #SydneyFanChat

Francesco Strati: Do you enjoy being used as a utility or would you prefer to play in one position?  I dont mind playing wherever I’m asked, but Arnie has said he sees me as an RB so i’ll concentrate on that for now. #SydneyFanChat

John Smith: Rhyan. Can you make your hair shit again so we can sing songs correctly? It’s not great at the moment so it’s halfway there 😉 #SydneyFanChat
