The most anti-social member of The Social Club, Conor's disdain for human interaction even stretches to Twitter where, having resisted signing up until as late as August 2012, he now regularly punishes his followers with wince-inducing puns and an inexplicable fascination with Match of the Day's score graphics. These days, the lifelong Cliftonville fan can be found waffling in Sunday Life and The Belfast Telegraph - but, whisper it quietly, when it comes to international football, Conor's the only member of the panel that supports 'that other lot' and even has an FAI Season Ticket to prove it!
