Super Geoff

For the many of you who hate football and/or footballers, this guy is one of those glorious exceptions to your rule. He's an old chum who has been through the mill, and then some.

The line about not being in the porn industry is of the kind of pricelessness that few footballers of any real wit could come up with. I think he's fantastic, and I only wish he'd signed for Hull City when the chance came...

I didn't realise he had taken the Assistant Managers role at Port Vale. I'm glad to see he's back in the game after all he's been through.

From memory during his loan spell at Leeds, the handful of post-match interivews he gave me the impression that he had never forgotten his roots and actually was very intelligently spoken. His interiew seemed to be a break from the norm of the calibre of interview given by other players who played for Leeds during that season of disappointment (you'll probably remember it well Matthew as it was joy for Hull City avoiding relegation from the Championship at the expense of Leeds United).

I actually feel saddened at the way he left the club (if you believe the story that Ken Bates put out in his programme notes at the time).
