Sinclair: lives in Dubai

Sinclair: lives in Dubai

Sky Bet

Gracing the orange sofas this week will be a former England international, a Hollywood actor and one of the biggest hip-hop groups in the world.

Kicking things off in the studio will be Trevor Sinclair!

The former Queens Park Rangers, West Ham and Manchester City midfielder will always be remembered for the stunning overhead kick he scored in QPR's 3-2 FA Cup win over Barnsley in 1997.

The outrageous effort from the edge of the area was named goal of the year and earned him a number of admirers, in particular from East London and West Ham. A year later he joined the Irons where he became a firm fans' favourite, scoring 37 goals in 177 games.

He also earned his first England call-up while playing at Upton Park and was brought into the 2002 World Cup squad as a late replacement for the injured Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy.

Sinclair played in four games at the tournament and was widely regarded as one of England's better players as they reached the quarter-finals before being knocked out by Brazil.

Following West Ham's relegation from the Premier League in 2003, Sinclair opted for a move back to his hometown and signed for Kevin Keegan's Manchester City side.

He spent four years with the club before joining Cardiff City in 2007. In 2008 he brought down the curtain on an 18-year career after just one season with the Championship club.

These days he spends all his time in Dubai where he lives with his family, and Helen and Max will be finding out how he has been spending his days away from football on his first ever appearance on the show.

Our second guest this week was known as 'The Most Electrifying Man in Sports Entertainment' during his days as a professional wrestler.

Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, made his name during a distinguished eight-year career in the WWE, before inevitably Hollywood came knocking on his door.

Since then he has forged a successful career as an actor starring in blockbusters such as The Mummy Returns, Scorpion King and Get Smart. He'll no doubt be telling us about his upcoming projects and of course that very famous eyebrow!

Completing this week's line-up will be American hip-hop stars D12.

The Rappers, who are also known as The Dirty Dozen, hail from Detroit, Michigan where they formed in the '90's.

They achieved mainstream success after Eminem, who is also a member of the group, rose to international fame and established himself as a solo artist.

Their albums, Devil's Night and D12 World, both reached number one on the Billboard charts in America, while their singles Purple Pills, Fight Music, My Band, and How Come were all huge hits.

The group are currently in the UK touring and they will be dropping into the studio on Saturday morning, just hours after their final gig in London!

So that wraps up all the guests, but as ever we'll have all your usual favourites too, including, Small Talk with Baby Elvis, Swindon's Skill Skool, Crossbar Challenge with Scunthorpe and Luton's fans in the Luther Blissett stand, including chairman Nick Owen ahead of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final on Sunday.

Plus, Sam Allardyce will be the subject of I Love Football, Terry Nutkins gives us another match prediction, we visit Our Man in a Caff, Razor Ruddock tries his hand at becoming a Press Officer at Coventry and we see how Tubes got on when he joined Sway in the recording studio!

And there's more! Accrington Stanley boss John Coleman Takes One for the Team, Geoff Shreeves will be joining us from Ewood Park ahead of Blackburn's clash with Tottenham and we get an update on The Golden Shoe, Espadrille and Glove!

So tune in to Soccer AM, 9am, Saturday, on Sky Sports 1 and Sky 1 and see all the gang including this week's Soccerette who is a Mansfield Town fan!
