Yup, I've gathered all the stray interesting quotes from recent MLSS feature interviews and here we are. Unfortunately, I thought I had a couple sitting on my notepad for the Bibert Kaghado article, cleared my recorder and then came to see I did not actually have any of his extra comments saved.

I have been dealing with a minor thumb sprain this week, but did manage to knock out this feature with AZ/USMNT forward Aron Jóhannsson.
