Signed for a team in Japan:

Always thought he was a half-decent player and did a good job for us and he came to us with lots of plaudits. Surprised he's not really prospered more in the Football League - perhaps the language and settling might've been an issue?

He had a fantastic January until the end of our promotion season, but aside from that he seemed to be used sparingly and never got a look in once OGS brought his Scandinavians into the club. Signing for Wigan probably didn't help as they were in free fall when he joined them so a move closer to home is a good idea so he can restart his career. Shame though.

His headed equaliser against Man Ure was one of the highlights of our Premier season.

I'd say his run and cross for Gunnarsson's goal against Man City was another.......

I was fond of his goal against Blackpool the season before not least because of the opposition and that it gave us a 10-point lead at the top but also because I celebrated like a lunatic on my own in a pub in Farringdon while watching it.

He was best player on the pitch that night.

His technique was great but Malky seemed to think he was too lightweight for the first half of the promotion season and OGS never really played him, if memory serves me correctly

As listed above, he gave us plenty of memories and will go down as a bit of a cult hero 15 years from now when looking back on the promotion season.


This assist against Hull on the final day was fuc*ing phenomenal!
