Reo-Coker – world class?

reocokerhat.jpgThere’s nothing like a warm welcome but Villa’s Stiliyan Petrov seems to be clouded by claret coloured spectacles in his praise of new signing, Nigel Reo-Coker.
Petrov said without a smirk, ‘Nigel is a great player, and I was surprised that West Ham let him go because he’s one of the top midfielders in the world.
‘He’s the type of player who has a great heart, superb ability and he never gives up. To have someone in our team like that is great.
Riiight, is this the same Reo-Coker that only scored a single goal last season, was blamed for West Ham’s early laurel resting and showed his ‘never say die’ commitment by promptly handing in a transfer request?

    Reo-Coker revealing his shock loan move to CSKA Moscow????

    Are you sure these drug testing procedures are correctly enforced? Because I want to know what Petrov’s been smoking these days!

    Petrov’s a Bulgarian. Perhaps something has been lost in translation, or he was in a fit of myopic drunkeness.
