When he made his debut he was hailed a genius. I begged to differ and was roundly lambasted. His performance was spectacular apparently, he was unquestionably the Man of the Match seemingly, and an old adversary from the Org, Wrongy Shanghai, got up on his high horse and declared that, with his armoury of coaching badges, he could confirm this guy was the real deal. Well who has been proved right again exactly?
The Boffmeister is no more. He has departed, ceased to be a West Ham keeper, has quit the green and pleasant land of Newham to return home, his reputation in tatters. Not so much a genius it seems as a GCSE goalkeeping failure, fourth choice behind Green, Henderson...and Henri Lansbury no less.
It's all such a terrible shame for the headline writers of course. Boffin was named to be a star, especially at West Ham under Sullivan and Green, destined it seemed for a glorious professional career whilst studying Porn Movies at East London University. And that's why that debut was hailed to the heights of course, and stupidly West Ham fans who think they know a bit about football and who profess to hate the journos, lapped it all up like Pussy Galore in one of Sugo's movies.
Goodbye and good luck Ruud, I'm sure you will find a berth at a top Belgian second division club.
