Quote: Played (and scored) at international level, how harder can you get then that. sammy.luke..................... But out of 20 games at international level, he has only scored 3 goals, that isn't a very good record, is it.

Who cares, if he has a good international record or no, if he's good enough to play in the Premiership, that is good enough for me!!!!!!!!!
