Can’t be having Psycho as a foreigner.
Of course he's a foreigner. Despite playing for Wales, he's Belgian.

Would Kevin Sheedy be classed as a foreigner? And for that matter any Rep of Ireland player playing for us prior to him? What is the definition of a foreigner in this case?

Strictly speaking, Yes. The Republic of Ireland is not strictly a home nation as such, but personally, I don't really consider an Irishman to be foreign. I don't know whether that's because Liverpool as a city has such strong Irish links, but I've never really considered the Republic of Ireland as abroad.

You can tell he’s not Belgian by the fact we never heard a peep out of his old fella.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

To complicate it even more, Sheedy was actually born in Wales.

Not really had much luck with Dutch players since Ray Atteveld.

I think I would swerve anything Dutch . Piss poor League and National team . All that tippy tappy total football stuff has left them soft as fuck and not up to the standard needed for the Premier League .

And on top of that, their food is bland and their women imperious. Lax drug laws is the only thing they have going for them.

Haha, great word 'imperious' 👍🏼

No more Klassen's thank you. Cruyff would have been OK though. Any more fancy names out of the top hat?

Is there some kind of immutable forum rule that there should always be at least one rambling head the ball at all times?
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.
