  2. A player shadowed by injuries in recent years. Feel sorry for him. Congrats on his ambassador role though.
     
  3. Huge shame, he could of been an England legend if not for injuries, good luck with the ambassador position though.
     
  4. sucks. not as sad as edge being forced to retire though
     
  5. Poor guy. One of the greatest CB's to ever play our game. His injury wasn't only Tottenham's loss but England's too.
     
  6. IMO he was like the next level up to Ferdinand a great centre half with such good composure on the ball. A horrible shame with his knee issues but this is probably for the best, he couldn't even train properly could he? Plus I'm guessing the issues would have caused him a lot of pain.
     
  7. Apparently King did "light training" twice a week, and did plenty of swimming.
