I think it was his goal for Wales that he lived off.
That's the one I was referring to.

I would despair at that to be quite honest.

Quite likely and they've probably said that to him.

Neither he nor us could get anyone better so .......welcome our new signing the welsh wizard ...... ;D

Has been better than many have suggested
Put a much higher work rate in than plenty players that get lauded
Scored some crucial goals on the way up

Weeeeeeeee had Kanu, robson Kanu
And overall I think we suited each other .
If youre going to get told off, get told off for doing something not for doing nothing..

Agree 100%. He was offered a contract he accepted not his fault who on here would have refused? Always did his best(not good enough) but tried always had a go and never let anyone down. Robson-kanu I thank you and wish you all the best.

HRK symptomatic of our horrific recruitment at that time and has conned a living out of this sport. A forward who averages 4 goals a year in his career.

Not sure him “trying hard” warrants any emotional parting with the club- it was time to move on a couple of seasons ago to be honest.

Personally would like to see us be more ruthless with players like this.

Wish him well whatever he does next though.

Don't absolutely hate him; but he did completely mess up by petulantly getting sent-off against Derby ahead of of our play-offs. As things transpired; we were very stretched for attacking players; even if it was just to come on and take a penalty.

should never have been signed but got into Pulis's team because he worked ard and that's about all he has offered except the falling over,  bad touch and constantly being offside.

He’s got outside interests such as a few of his own businesses. HRK is one of the brighter ones who has invested his generous earning into laying foundations for a future. Unlike many ex-professionals who find themselves labouring on site including our own Super Bob.

Lee Naylor will take some beating though, prior to 1st lockdown he was skint and back at his moms in Walsall.

You’re correct. I tend to remember he was involved in the benefits of Turmeric as a benefit to to joint problems.

The term 'legend' is banded about all too often, given his business interests outside of the game I'd be surprised if HRK ever joins forces with 'Play with a Legend'......

It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

Well, HRK might have finished at top level as a player but what a great performance this afternoon as a BBC pundit!

Very distinct verbally and flowing with none of the ‘You know’ comments in fact the best of the three on the panel.

Well done Hal.

He's so posh isn't he. Not a major shock I suppose, any footballer who sets up a business while still playing has something between their ears.

Might not rate him as a player but he is a clever bloke who has done well for himself away from the game (as well as in the game)
