Quote of the day

"I want to be a good role model and, one day, a good father to my children. Being a man is not just about standing up for yourself and saying, 'I'm a fucking man.' Being a man is how you deal with things; how you give your kids the tools that I've now got without them making the mistakes I made."

The words of ASBO, as dictated to an Esquire journalist, and reported in the press today.  You can read the full press report here, including some interesting comments on his younger self.  Reading the article, you get the feeling that ASBO has turned the corner, and realised firstly how to deal with being a premiership footballer, and more importantly how to deal with being a grown adult.

Given the form he has shown for much of the season, hopefully he'll continue his learning curve in a black and white shirt. 

Next lesson: Not slagging off England players (however much they deserve it) if you ever hope to play with them for the national team.
