Probably an unpopular opinion but this just seems to reflect how he was when he was playing, thought he was better than everyone else when he wasn't. He always came across as lazy and arrogant and I think he does again here, but adding the mental health part means he is "brave".

Hence the white boots.

One of the nicest players, I have ever met on and off the pitch, very sad to hear another person suffering from this awlful illness and hope he can become a good ambassador for Mental Health

Never saw him as lazy in fact the reverse a player who gave his all, but maybe not the most gifted in the game, but then there are many in the game who make a living

All the best Drewe

I remember they were good mates , in fact they called themselves Batman and Robin coz they used to knock about together.

I bumped into a crest fallen young Kights who had just been refused entry coz of his age to a nightclub in Chelmsford that i was going into. Luckily i knew the bouncer so got him in + he bought me a beer ( Kights, just broken into our 1st team was on soft drinks)
When I told him that i had a £20 bet with a mate that Kights would score more goals for us than Drewe that season , Kights was amazed i had that much confidence in him ( I lost the bet !!! )
