Took 3 months to get him fit enough to get through 90 minutes, then his loan ended the following month. Hoped he'd extend, but wasn't to be. We knocked him into shape, then he fooked off to Turkey instead. Probably came down to money. Milan sold us just after Drenthe left.

Looks like he hasn't played much since he left us.

 

Turned out to be a decent signing for the short stint he was here. Bit of a waste of a career for him though, looked the real deal when he was younger and got his big move that most of us could only dream about.

Agree. 

Possibly the best of the meat crispy snacks since Burtons Piglets.

Burton's beef puffs were the best :biggrin:

He retired in 2016 to concentrate on his rapping but came out of retirement to help Sparta Rotterdam get promoted last year playing 32 games. Now plays for an amateur team......kinda sums his career up that!

Took an age to get him on the park and when we did within a month he was gone. Looked at times a cut above the rest of the team. Probably should have had a much better career but sure he made his money at Real.

Came in at the end of the MM era when we were absolutely skint. Everyone thought he would be a car crash based on reports from Everton, Reading etc but he was really decent. Worked harder than I thought he would do, seemed to enjoy his football here. Just vanished one day to a random team if I remember correctly. 

No complaints about his time here at all really.

This pretty much sums it up.

 

Was class and gave his all. If we have have had a pot to p1ss in we should have kept him. But we didn't, was just gutted at the time as if DC had given Gray that money a bit earlier we could have got him perm.
