James saves best until last
IT’S nice to see David James has kept his feet firmly rooted to the ground following the World Cup – much like he did when Germany stuck four past him.
James was widely tipped to move to a Premier League club following Portsmouth’s relegation from the top-flight – and so baffled everyone when he moved to Championship also-rans Bristol City.
And it turns out, BBM wasn’t the only one surprised by the move – the man himself was too, claiming he thought it was a joke.
“I thought someone was trying to pull my leg initially,” said the in-the-closet star.
“I’d just had a stag do and it was 10 o’clock in the morning and I was certainly the worse for wear. If it hadn’t been Steve (Coppell) I’d have ignored it straight away. But City’s finish last season was decent and the manager is someone I have a high respect for.”
