Never forgive Hoddle leaving him out of the France 98 squad . Was on holiday in Turkey when the news came out . Was in a right mood for days and the Mrs had a right go. ….
Him and Ince were magnificent getting that draw away in Rome to get us into the finals . Even if he didn’t start having Gazza in the bench rather than Merson would have given us something different .
I also remember for few months in 2002 there was talk of him making it back in the squad . He went on a decent run of form for Everton culminating in him tearing apart the O’s in the cup. Think he then got injured , got on the sauce and Sven laughed the idea out of town .
He doesn’t really watch footy I heard cause there are no players that he is really fussed about . He was an unbelievable player . Utter genius . Proper fruit loop though, poor chap
