It was inevitable his return there would be a failure. What a sad end.
We could all see last season he was simply not up to it anymore. If he had an sense he would’ve just hung around here and gradually transitioned into more media work. It didn’t seem like we forced him out, rather just accepted he was a club legend and would have to wear his wages for a season while he sat on the sidelines. He said in an interview before his first Birmingham game that he took a big pay cut to join Brum, so I guess he just has a really, really misguided view of his ability, which I guess you can’t blame him for.
His book comes out Thursday. Can't wait.
Will there be anything we don’t know in it ?
This could be his last season as a player unless he goes back to Walsall (who could be a non-league side by then). Sad to have to retire at 33 but quite a few players have to do that at that age and younger.
That depends, were you aware he was once in prison?
And slept in missing a trial etc .
I hadn’t heard that. What about Arsenal? Does he have any strong views about them?
I expect he will have a full chapter about not having the 'COJONES' to take him on.
