Good to see international recognition BUT would prefer he had the Summer off and came in fresh next season.

Agreed Gordonsleftboot, as he is one of the players who hasn't lived up to the price tag and wages yet, so really want to see him fit and raring to go in the new season. Maybe this will help though, keep him fit and get him firing?

Jesus, the RoI must be awful if he gets a game. Used to keep eye on them in the days of Staunton, Townsend, Houghton and God, especially WC1994. Looks like they've plummeted since then.
