Once regarded as the hottest property in the country, he suffered injury after injury and his big-money move to Leeds from Sunderland never sparked his potential. Newcastle gave him a spell at St James' Park but, just like at Elland Road, he never produced his early promise.
We hope he finally gets it right at Carlisle. How can we at TOTT forget his anti-Mackem songs in Vaults (in the Bigg Market) when he used to go on the raz with Clarky? All the very best to him.
