Emile Heskey rolls back the years with latest miss
This week marked the fifth anniversary of Emile William Ivanhoe Heskey signing for Aston Villa in what Martin O’Neill considered the transfer that would see us over the line in the push for Champion’s League spot. Well, we know how that worked out. Despite almost 100 appearances for Villa, Heskey failed to notch up double figures in terms of goals in a three-year period. You’d probably have had to have been a season ticket holder to witness an actual Heskey goal at Villa Park. I still can’t get his shot against Manchester United that went off for a throw in.
Anyway, this week playing down under for his current team Newcastle Jets, Heskey added yet another spectacular miss into the You Tube archives. It’s good to see the big man hasn’t lost his majestic touch. UTV
