Here's a fact or two you missed off.

Reneged on a five year contract.

Abrogated on the responsibility of being the club captain at a time when the club, the management team and the fans needed him to step up and be counted. All he offered was sullen silence.

The man is not to be trusted.

Big Vic is waiting for you in the first game of the season. I expect you'll be on the bench though so he'll have to find a meal somewhere else.

One last fact - do not, ever, want to talk about this self serving piece of **** again, ever, for all time, eternity.
