Jabba's Comments

When Wilko signed former hod-carrier Vinnie Jones at the start of the 1989-90 season, it sent out a message to the world: "We're going for promotion and it's going to be a kick, elbow and bite drive. Nothing will stand in our way." And such it was: Vinnie's fearsome reputation from Wimbledon may have caused a few sleepless nights for Division 2 attackers, but in that season he controlled his aggression to perfection, only picking up a couple of bookings as he stood firm in the centre of midfield. With promotion secured and Gary McAllister signed, it was clear that there would only be limited opportunities for Vinnie in the first team, so he was sold at a profit to Sheffield United and has always had a great reception whenever he returns to Elland Road. He finally retired from the game to concentrate on his acting career after the success of his appearance in "Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels", and his main sporting interest these days seems to be greyhounds, with his dogs making the final of the Greyhound Derby in 2000 and 2001.

Louisa Mason says: I think that Vinnie, is the fittest footie player, to ever step onto a pitch!

Emma says: I think that Vinnie is the best. He woz phat at football and I've watched all the films he's been in and I think he makes an excellent movie star.
