Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread - Where attempted murder happens
to be fair neville never had injuries similar to what johnson has had when he was just a kid. it would be much easier to get your head turned when you're not doing what you love consistently. what you've quoted is correct in general, but from what i've read johnson's only gone 'off the rails' when he started regularly missing football.
and that's the only thing i'll say in his defence. i can't imagine how hard it would've been for a kid to go through the injuries he's had. it's just annoying to see it happen.
