    Harry Kewell coming back to the UK, probably to Blackburn. Lets hope he gets the Elland Road welcome he deserves if he doesn't feign an injury as he normally does. Even better if he gets pulled into the Kop.

    Can he even walk any more? Be interesting to see how many games he manages to play, and what they pay him (I'd imagine he won't be on a pay-as-you-play deal).

    Before checking Wikipedia my guess is... 31. But he's always had injury problems.

    He is a month and a half away from his 34th birthday.

    They will end for good if he sets foot in Elland Road. I am hoping he scores in front of the Kop, jumps on the advertising boards to celebrate like Cantona, because this time he will be pulled in and I seriously hope he doesn't make it out alive.

    Not after he signed for Galatasaray despite being there when Chris and Kev were murdered, receiving the death threats in the middle of the night despite police telling the hotel not to put any calls through to the players at all and needing a police escort to get onto the pitch, where there was no minute's silence.

    No, I think most Leeds fans quite rightly hate him for what he did.

    That wasn't a very clever move for sure..

    Well, I didn't think England sent their strongest U23 side due to Euros, injuries or just managers protecting players.

    Micah Richards was horrific with the ball at his feet. What a waste of a senior position. Sadly, the Welsh were the most effective in the squad and that's saying much when you send a 32 year old Bellamy and a 39 year old (!) Giggs.

    If Ramsey had gotten the second penalty in, it would have been a moot point but whatever. I'm just not sure why I keep investing myself into watching England and now Great Britain - it's like a battered wife syndrome.

    But hey, they did better than Spain yeah? :bored:

    No words, it's so sad that England/Team GB feel like they deserve to win stuff just by entering the competition.. We are slowly becoming the laughing stock of the world, this 'novelty' team they put together (which I think also had to do with Hodgson not wanting to pick black players) was one big joke!

    England has already won a World Cup so w/evs, we got nothing left to prove

    Can't take anymore of this sour grapes.
