    If anyone deserves to play in a team like we have now, it is Ledley. Legend.

    I knew a rep called Mandy Roan. Her nickname was Randy Moan.

    What a good representative for the club. I'm so pleased that he is still here and now learning under Mourinho.
    After the cruel curtailing of his playing career, it'd be lovely to think that he could still have a part to play in success for the club that has been involved in so much of his life.

    On work Zoom conference with King being interviewed...

    few snippets:

    dinner lady scouted him and recommend him to her husband

    Judas was an early inspiration showing a young black lad could make it

    Was jealous of Chelsea lads telling stories about Mourinho in England get together

    best manager - loved Jol and Hoddle, credit Ramos for actually delivering a trophy but Harry’s was the best team he played in.

    current player - would have loved to have played with Kane.

    The pitch-side seats at Stamford Bridge are a joke. The coaches eyes are below knee level, they can't see a thing without standing up.

    glad the club gave him a role. not sure how good is he though - never seen him on interviews though he seemed to be a good leader and captain of the average football club we were back then.

    He commented on a couple of our games on itv4 when we were in the Europa league and was pretty awful.

    My favourite ever player I love him, he is not a natural in the studio. He did read the game well as a player which gives him half a chance the rest would be whether he could get across what he means to the players.

    Yeah agreed. As a pundit, he’s dreadful. Think he’s a bit of a shy lad so being on tv probably doesn’t suit him. Doesn’t mean he isn’t a good coach though.

    He would be more in his natural environment as a coach, which I'm sure would suit him better than a TV studio.

    Met him a couple of times (in his ambassador role), very shy, takes a while to warm up.

    I actually think he knows the game extremely well, the story he told was with all the injuries, he spent a lot of time watching the game, watching what happens/positioning/etc. and he feels that impacted/improved his ability as a player.

    He reminds me of Paul McGrath actually which is funny because, as a player, he’s had that comparison too because neither trained properly and they were still brilliant most weeks.

    McGrath was very nervous doing punditry. Apparently he was bricking himself so badly doing it that John Giles had to say “Paul, just say this when you’re prompted and I’ll say ‘that’s a great point Paul’ to settle you down”. Think he also no-showed for the BBC in the 2002 World Cup. I believe Ledley liked a drink and was photographed a few times looking all over the shop although McGrath’s problems were an awful lot worse. Here’s a man who, according to his autobiography, drank Domestos.

    He was a great player who when he left Utd was talked about coming here, i guess we will never find out why it did not happen although it was said the bright life of London was to much of a risk ( social wise), he left Utd after several problem with his drinking etc.

    Met him a few times now, dating back to 2005. Once he warms up he is a great laugh. Soft spoken yes, but very knowledgable. What a defender eh?!!!! Jesus...
