Fucking pay me!!!
Couldn't agree more with this. Way too slow for what top level football requires nowadays - big old unit but unfit with it. A shame because I think with better mentality and conditioning could have been an awesome player. Even so his passing could be awesome and scored a few incredible long-range shots like in the 3-3 NLD. Basically I think he was, overall, good, but also had a lot of unrealised potential.
I recall towards the end of his tenure he came back from a long term injury leaner and fitter than we'd ever seen him and he was on a blinding run of form before succumbing to one last injury, struggling then leaving.
On his day he was magic to watch.
