I remember Sonny Pike appearing on the Big Breakfast with his big hair doing keepie-ups in an Ajax kit. Next England superstar guaranteed, they said.
He was on Soccer AM doing the same around the same time, late 1990s.

I seem to remember Joe Cole being spoken of in a similar way when he was about 15, and though he didn't turn into a superstar he did have a pretty decent career.

He ended up at Waltham Forest according to Wikipedia, so your joke above is out of plaice.
Sorry, I got my info off my mate Ray, but then he always was a bottom feeder. I don't like to cross him mind , cos he does carry some muscle and is a great double bass player.

Certainly done me up like a kipper hasn't he!

Dont get to excited its Carlton Cole (me thinks)
I would get excited by that as that is exactly what we need tbf
However he had offers from championship clubs that he has refused so I think that is highly unlikely

Yeah that didn't even make full sense. It's less a load of fish puns shoehorned into a sentence than the other way around.

Plus you've taken most of the good ones, very shelfish of you.

That'd be just the icing on the fucking cake, wouldn't it?

Well, let's just see who it is, it's bound to be someone on his last fluid-filled knee, shin-splints and a last pay day gleaming in his eyes.

After this thread, whoever it turns out to be will be a comical letdown. My money's on Clive Platt.
