No more epic McKain own goals:(

17 Jun

Sad news for fans of the Wellington Phoenix, Jon McKain is off to Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr. McKain is fondly remembered amongst the Vuvuzela Venting crew for his epic own goals as well as occasionally putting the ball in the back of the correct net. In fact, he scored one more goals (2) than attacking midfielder Michael Ferrante (1), not that this is much of an achievement! Interesting tid bit, he will be one of only 3 non Saudi Arabians in the Al-Nassr squad.

We all wish McKain well in this endeavour since he played awesomely for us and isn’t going to another A-League club, unlike Shane Smeltz who deserted us for the warm weather and big pay packet on the Gold Coast. We don’t hold grudges…honestly…

Ahh McKain, you've done it again! Farewell!

      Dunno, I’m philisophical about people following the money when it is to another league, got to look after your faimly etc.

      If he was going to play for the Melbourne Heart on the other hand, he would be black listed for life…

      But they had Denílson as a player – the man with the most stunning CV in history (if stunning implies money hungry and obviously lazy).
