British players abroad

There are some Brits playing in some pretty obscure countries I've noticed....no less than Rohan Ricketts...remember him?(ex Spurs, Coventry)? what a mad situation he was in. Luckily he just managed to get out of there.

Worth a read.....

Seth Burkett, young English left back playing in the lower leagues of Brazil

Gary Martin (IA Akranes, Iceland)

Jordan Stewart (Xanthi ,Greece)

Maurice Ross (ex Rangers) - Beijing Goan - EDIT: back in Scotland

Kenny Miller (Bursaspor)

Carl Robinson (Red Bulls NY)

I'm sure there are other obvious ones.....

Beckham obviously.

Do you mean Maurice Ross? He's back in Scotland at Motherwell.

There's a handful of Scots in Australia, like ex-Ross County forward Steven McGarry of Perth Glory, & ex-Hibs man Grant Brebner at Melbourne.

Mark Burchill, ex Celtic & Sheffield Wednesday, is at Enosis Neon in Cyprus, & ex-Champ Manager legend Mark Kerr is in Greece with Asteras Tripoli.

There was one at Real Betis but he's left to move to Scotland as he was only really involved in their B team, Ryan Harper, while his wee brother Jack is 15 & involved in the Real Madrid setup apparently. Bet nothing comes of that.

ah yeah , i meant him ...I'll edit that...didn't know he was back

Kris Thackray (Reggina, Italy)

Scott Sutter (BSC Young Boys Switzerland)

Eric Dier (Sporting Lisbon)

Lewis Holtby (Schalke/Mainz)

Though the latter ones are clutching at straws I guess having lived abroad most of their lives, esp Holtby. I heard the last 2 have claimed they want to represent England if possible.

He's a class player, but was surrounded by losers.

I'm surprised he managed to catch that!

At least he'll have Kenny Miller for company.

Kenny Miller is the pride & joy of an increasingly pathetic footballing nation, I was referring to yourself

If Bastin returns, I'll start panicing about a timewarp

Amazed Fowler is still playing. Can't be getting much cash in Thailand can he?
