Saw him at Roots Hall the other week on his way in to watch our game. Isn't he coaching a foreign team?

Was sacked by Indian team Kerala Blasters after four consecutive defeats in October.

Yes that's not bad at all, saying that, he was playing in the Southend Vet's league when he was in his 50's and he still had it then.

He was pushing a pram with his wife when I saw him, it was either one of his grand children he was pushing or HE'S REALLY GOT IT :stunned:

Yes he's 63 (a year younger than me).I can remember playing against him in the youth league when he was with Canvey.:cricko:

And there you are hobbling about and Peter is running up and down hills; so often ex footballers get fat and lazy with "broken" joints but he has obviously looked after himself.:Worthy:

Oi less of the "hobbling" about.While it's true that I partially ruptured my achilles tendon about 18 months or so ago, I'd say I've made a pretty good recovery from that-after spending an hour in the gym doing physio every day for 6 months-certainly much better than when I saw you last.

Ah my bad.Knew he was more my younger brother's age (Not RobNoxious the other one),who's nearly two years younger than me,rather than mine.:cricko:

You don't mention that Spud played for Canvey boys.He turned out a couple of seasons for them in the youth league.In the same team as "Ticker" Lamb,who went on to play a few first team games for us.

I know he's been helping out over CIFC with training over Christmas. Maybe he's just keeping himself busy these days.

The FA couldn't do any worse than ask him to help out with the under 21 squad and G Southgate, I'm sure GS could use the experience of PT around him. PT was very successful with the under 21 team.
