    One of the great characters in the game, had more clubs than tiger woods but a likeable fella.
    He always struck me as someone who thought he was playing with his mates when he played, always smiling and happy.

    Good player. Still remember that goal against us and the goal he scored for us!!!

    His podcast is a good listen and doesn't take himself too seriously.

    Also this is one one the best replys ever on twitter

  4. Yup, seems a thoroughly decent and likeable bloke.

    Wouldn't mind seeing him given a chance at punditry.

    The lads had a good career out of the game, and a lovely wife.

    Top man, good professional and no ego. A lot to like about him summed up by his response to the question, "So Peter, if you weren't a footballer, what do you think you would be?". His reply "A virgin". Brilliant

    Always remember him for his reply when he was asked what he'd be if he hadn't been a footballer.

    His reply? "A Virgin"!

    It also looks like he's already feeling the pinch, having to appear in adverts for mobile phones to bring the money in.



    EDIT: beat me to the "virgin" tale! Damn!

    Neither possible in theory but somehow it came to be.....

    Very underated player who had a great career
