Got injured today against Sunderland and it will put him out for the rest of the season. As it stands he's played his last game as a professional footballer. So I ask you this question: Did big Al make the most of his career for club and country? I say no. One of the best strikers that England has ever produced has one medal sitting in his cupboard. IMO he should have gone to Man Utd for a few seasons, won a few things then moved to Newcastle. As an England player he was good when he was good but most of the time he was keeping Robbie Fowler out of the team and sending crosses in from the wing. He didn't retire a moment too soon. Thoughts?
