Well at the end of the day he wasn't playing, he didn't want too, so we might aswell have the money which we got for him and which we will save from his wages.

what a ****in liability he woz! if he touches the ball 10 times; one will be a magnificent cross, 8 will be ok moves and then finally he'll do something DISASTROUS. my favourite was the penalty he gave away at the begining of the season, classic elokobi! rather the money any day we've done wolves big time if its 500000
