I think we all know the history of the great Spanish international Marcelino, who was a big money signing and played as often as he fancied … which wasn’t that much!

Kieron Dyer has injury problems, and he had them when he arrived. Making him a big liability to Freddy Shepherd and the club.

He has had more comebacks than Staus Quo and rumour has it Fat Fred would gladly get the player fit and ready … and try and off-load him to get him off the books.

Arsenal have long been interested, but they also know his injury history.

As for Glenn Roeder, I’m sure he is of the opinion … a fit Kieron Dyer is an asset to any team … but an injured player on £50,000 a week is as much good as a chocolate fireguard.


Glenn Roeder: ‘Kieron Dyer is having an extended period of rehab and is working really well at the moment, flat out. We’re not expecting him back at the training ground until the end of August, but we’re monitoring his progress.’
