He's loving it here. I'm moving to within 2 miles of the Tampa Bay Rowdies ground next month so will be going to games.

He's the captain and playing excellently - although at 3rd division level.

But he lives in an amazing town.

This article has some mistakes but it's more about his life in Florida

Quite right Tel , and for that reason , wrongly , a lot of people always had him down as a gooner .

Always has been a Chelsea nut though . He was in my eldest boys class for a while , before he was packed off to Lilleshall I believe.

He was a great footballer and a joy to watch. He doesn't come across as the smartest of individuals though. With that thought in mind, I would keep him away from teaching

I think it's always difficult for those who are blessed with natural gifts to try and coach/teach people who are less talented.

Frank Lampard for example worked and trained himself into the the player he is. I was watching and interview with Eddie Hearn the other day and he was at the same school as Frank. He said that even as a kid he was training after school and doing shuttle runs and repetition drills.

Someone like Lampard would know exactly what it takes to make it as a player through training and could impart that onto young lads (although I'm not suggesting as a West Ham coach but it's an example).

Joe Cole was a naturally gifted lad who had that ability to think quickly and do something with the ball that was not necessarily coached but he'd been doing since he was 5 years old in the garden.

Gazza, Maradona, Best, Marsh or whoever could do what they wanted with a football but I'm quite sure would wonder what the fuck was going on with a bunch of lads who struggled to dribble around some cones.

When Glenn Hoddle was England manager he was running freekick drills. I think it was Jamie Redknapp that told the story but Hoddle just could not fathom whey the players at his disposal could not regularly dispatch the dead-ball into the top corner. Apparently he did not coach them how to do it, he just curled three in himself and said "That's how it's done" then ditched the drill.

Anyway, I'd imagine that someone like Jack Collison who has had his career cut short and has done his coaching badges would have a lot more to offer than Cole.
