Since Brucie put him over on the left flank he has been simply outstanding, with his technical ability and first touch (as good as I have seen in a sunderland shirt) it just got me thinking why did this lad never get the chance to play for a top top club (ie big four, clubs performing in europe etc..). Sure you lad a few quality seasons down in london with Fulham, then went to spurs and had another successful spell with them. My only guess would be his fitness as many have stated he is a smoker (not sure as I have no evidence to prove) but what is true is that very rarely he will last the 90 minutes, with that said though he can last the entire game but Brucie tends to take him off around 60-70mins.
My question is why do you think he never got a big move?
Not that i'm complaining, STTTTTTTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD DD
