Cracking player on his day, looked good when on loan to us as a youngster, could break with speed and control.

Yeah you could see he was a great dribbler and of course loved a long range effort. I hope he gets back in the Premier League for a couple more seasons. He's good enough.

You can hate it, and that's fine but who knows what issues may lie outside of football. There is always a bigger picture.

Of course as spectators, fans, lovers, etc of the sport (and many other sports) we can become very selfish in our wishes of those participating. It could simply he feels that at 29/30 he has done his bit for Wales at that level. Career aspirations (other than the few pro footballers who win trophies on an annual basis, something we've been sensitised to thanks to ever encroaching media exposure) for an elite athlete, HR-K has has a successful career so far;

Played at the highest domestic Club and International level. He's done alright.

Hal Robson Kanu is nowhere near good enough to be a premier league starter, which is why he has had a long and distinguished career largely spent not being a premier league starter

You donít half talk some nonsense sometimes

Anyway, he needs to retire so he can focus more on becoming a crypto currency mogul

Fair enough.He's done all right but there are players that would give anything to play for their country...It's disrespectful is all I'm saying not arguing that's it's down to individual choice.

Agree ! How does he (and Cahill plus Vardy) know theyíll be picked again anyway ? All three debatable if they are top of the pecking/picking order.

I suspect a number of things have happened behind the sciences from what may have appeared as a piece of journalism, which I have not read THF.

So my take on this is I am glad they have declared their desire to retire graciously from Int Football. I as alluded to it above I suspect that conversations between club managers the players concerned and GS have or should have been conducted professionally and properly.

Letís face it, when your all sat glued to the box pouring over every minute detail of the England team, squad selection, performanances, positions etc the last thing any of the players want for themselves and the team is a pisspoor performance and everyone, again nit picking and criticising and saying they are to fucking old.

How many sportsmen and women carried on well past their prime and failed to deliver? Loads is the answer. You only have to see the team GS put out for each WC game to see who was 1st in the pecking order. Right decision, right time as the Euros start soon. Young blood, make way for new faces to show what they can do.

Of course you're right in not knowing what the trigger was for retirement.

But at 29/30 if you can't still perform to your highest level then there's something wrong.

I always interpret it as 'I'm not good enough to get in now, but don't want the embarrassment of not being picked'. Which as said it's probably wrong in some cases, but not in others.

I'd imagine he might have a fit missus, and doesn't want Giggs getting near....

Tbf, he isn't even playing for his country. He's playing for his Grandmother's country. Bet his Dad was well pissed off when he chose Wales over Nigeria. That's probably more disrespectful. Alas, we don't know the full story.

I didn't realise you were a fucking football scout. Better get back to scouting. Dick.
