Quote of the day

"Coming up here has completely changed my life.

I grew up in north London, in Wood Green and I got into trouble. It all starts with just messing around with friends and jokes that go too far. I started running with a gang in the area. We were convicted of street robbery in Muswell Hill. There was a weapon but we didn't use it.

They were cracking down on street crime so I got sent down. I wasn't with a professional club at the time and I didn't really realise what I was risking.

There were seven of us charged and four of us were convicted. Jail was pretty rough but it taught me a lot. The most important thing I learned is that I never want to go back.

Nile Ranger on his, ahem, chequered past, as quoted on .com. His comments almost had me reminiscing fondly of Bobby's Borstal Boys (Bellamy, Bowyer, Dyer etc). Almost.
