Whats the deal with people criticising Lee Bowyer for his past. Did ge get convicted, no, did he get punished for a crime no, was it an injustice, no as everyone predicted he would walk away with nothing. I believe this too. Lee Bowyer has made mistakes in his past (joining West Ham a big one) but so has everyone, people who criticise him, can you honestly say u aint made a mistake in your past. No, so lets hold it against you, lets hold your mistakes against you for the rest of your lives. Why not do it? thats what the country is doing to Lee Bowyer. Get over it, Lee Bowyer might have changed or he might not have but he deserves a second chance to prove one way or the other. He's a great football player, he is pure quality, lay off him. Newcastle fans and Leeds fans did it, why cant the rest of the country, instead, laugh at Michael Duberry.
