not sure what the big fuss is about here, 1995 wouldn't have seen many englishmen in Cross, other than squaddies.

Journalists tend to put words in your mouth so that people hear what they expect to hear. The quote is a bit off as it suggests that this programme  could not have been made 20 years ago,which is not true.

Give us a few match reports tomorrow so we can see how he gets on...Could end up playing for Armagh, we may have found Jamie Clarke's partner in FF line... :P

He was a good player but didn't fulfil his potential. I think he was signed by Spurs for 17million at one stage. He has played for England and a few times.
 
Id imagine he would have no problem fitness wise for Gaelic football but general knowledge of the rules and ball handling skills will be his biggest problem i would say.

He was a prima donna who thought he was the second coming of Beckham, flattered to deceive and possibly one of the biggest let downs of his generation, lacked pace and more interested in his looks. Great striker of the ball though.

That quote above reminded me of a guy called Lynch who ended up working in a Bookies shop in Lurgan...(minus the great striker of a ball ;D)

I'd say he will struggle with the physicality. Might pop over a few frees though.

On the contrary, any time I've ever seen him interviewed he always came across as down to earth and humble.

Clarkey is at wingback these days, so maybe he could knock the ball into Bently in theft forward line.
