I winder how much money Matt Rowson is losing out on from people who, like me, were thinking of buying his book and now don't need to?

Don't worry he'll get royalties from every article published on this board.

That's true probably a nice little earner.

Would have Tommy back in a flash. The guarantee would be 100% commitment every game, someone in the squad who could get down the wing beat his man and get over a pin-point cross from the by-line, would be back in his own box clearing certain goals off the goal line and would give you 10 - 15 goals a season! Sign him up!
