Stephen Ireland

Stephen Ireland made an impact in Newcastle – at the bars and clubs. Soon after his arrival from Aston Villa on loan, he was pictured in a local nightclub on the night before a game.

He played two games and didn’t score – meaning the time he spent on nights out was probably more than the time he spent on the pitch.

Ireland is now semi-rehabilitated with Stoke City, for whom he has played 34 times.
