"I enjoyed it at Newcastle, but it was difficult playing there. I was a young man and struggled to deal with the level of adoration. I just wanted to play football, go home and go out with my mates.

"When I went out, some punters would say, "Well done". That was fine. Others wanted to hold court with you.

"I could be having a meal with my missus and people would come up and want to get involved in the conversation. It did my fruit in.

"I loved my football at Newcastle, but I felt trapped. And the more goals I scored, the worse it got. From the milkman to the bloke in the paper shop, everyone wanted to talk about football, football, football."


You f*cking ungrateful tw*t!

I can understand where he's coming from. For an introvert that must be exhausting.

Oh, man up jon, or put your lass on (if youve got one  :D)

These feckers are living lives of old riley with their mansions and fleets of bentleys, challenge them to live YOUR life for a week that'd give them something to whinge about, crawling out of a skip every morning, and heading for the nearest park bench armed with their LIDL carrier bag full of cans of cider theyve nicked the night before, spend the day intimidating passers-by and swearing at parked cars.

Just the fact that they complain about such trivial matters when they have riches above our wildest dreams should be seen as an insult to our comparatively shallow existence and therefore they should keep it to them F*CKING SELVES and just accept that it is all part and parcel of being f*cking FAMOUS!!

OK, you can run along to your skip now jon.... pleasant dreams lad   :lol:

For the last time, if you are an introvert as Cole is, that sort of attention can be exhausting.

Think i share a birthday with him, but anyway get the introvert thing and why it was a chore for him but at the same time you're a well paid supposed professional footballer, and should get some perspective. In his position i don't think 'man up' is that harsh.
like Scoot has said, for me he's always seemed like a d*ck. Find him totally uncool and the juxtaposition of that and him trying to be cool, awkward.

don't get me wrong i feel foe people with shyness and that, but us buggers suffering with rent arrears and final demands for council tax find his comments demoralising, this man has wealth beyond our dreams and has no idea how it feels to worry about keeping a roof over your head or affording food for your kids to eat, he's never known none of that,...ever"

facking ungrateful c*nt!!

He's allowed respite. He's also allowed to say it wasn't perfect. People need to get over themselves. Imagine being a plumber and people only wanting to tell you about their leaky toilet.
