    I think Rohan needs to get fixed.

    Interesting, but one does get a bit tired of his constant self-promotion.

    This seems very similar to Richard Eckersley's situation, maybe he should play in League 2 if he does not want to stay in Canada. It might be less money but definitely not worth the headache of going across Europe looking for a shot to be handed to you.

    This article is almost like a warning to other players.

    Interesting read. I don't mind its attention seeking ways because he always provides an entertaining story. Can somebody explain this to me though?

    Ricketts was let go at Arsenal (and joined us at Spurs) for stealing from team-mates. (Allegedly)

    Rohan Ricketts in the Independent
    http://www.independent.co.uk/news/pe...s-2360592.html

    Toronto (MLS 2008-09)

    My home now. I loved the culture and lifestyle. That's where my media career took off and I met my significant other.

    Rohan's been all over the papers with his return to Tottenham in the Europa League. So many "where the f*** have you been" stories.

    hehe I like his interviews, they are good craic.

    especially when his story changes slightly between them..

    From the Sun:
    "t was nuts. The players were welcoming but smoked in the changing room and drank four or five bottles of beer before games."

    From the Independent:
    "It was hot. I met some cool people but it was a horrendous experience for the most part. Some players used to drink before training."
