Le TGV is now plying his trade for Borneo in the Indonesian Liga A

I always liked Faubert. He would be great in our current set-up

"great" :lol:

His loan to Real Madrid was one of the strangest things I have seen in football. Him having a short nap when he was on the bench was the cherry on the cake.

I'll always love him for the blatant foul on the goalkeeper against Millwall that everyone saw apart from the officials. Good times.

Based on my username I too was a massive fan of his.

I even got a moody Real Madrid shirt with his name on the back for my 6-aside team as a laugh.

Would have him back at RB if he was still fit enough!

He still has a deep-rooted love for this club. Constantly posts about us on social media and seems to follow our games from the other side of the globe.

He was a strange one, his main asset was his pace which he lost after his achilles injury. Turned himself into a competent hard-working right back for us. He always gave 100% for us did Vin Diesel.

Wasn’t there a story that he kept getting his Lamborghini re-sprayed different colours to make it look like he had more than one? :lol:

That injury really did him in.

Typical West Ham style, picked the injury up in a pre-season friendly after some early glimpses of what he could do.

The best worst crosser ever, so flat, still provided this great moment, one of my favorite goals

I remember us signing him and his debut was in a friendly and scored he after 10 seconds or something crazy. I thought "Oh yeah, this guy is going to do the business". Anyone remember who it was against?

There was also the time he didn't come back on the pitch after half time and someone had to go and get him. Again - cant remember who we were playing. Championship I think.

Fairly sure that was because he was caring for his mother/father (cannot remember which) at the time. Did a **** load of travelling from what I remember.

Scored the day after their death against Hull didn't he, and you could tell it meant the world to him.

Not the first Hammer to have his career messed up by a bad injury.

He had a blinder that game. Scored and put through a sublime assist for Carlton, shades of '06 Kaka. :D

A player I quite like.

Stayed with us during a very ropey period for the club, assisted in getting us promoted, and left on a free transfer. I always felt the expectation was too great for a man who came with an excellent reputation, but was probably not really know by too many of us. The fact that we were willing to put in money for Ljungberg and Dyer even after he was signed was slightly telling (notwithstanding the serious injury)

When you watch it back that was an unbelievably good goal, and played out from the defence.

A genuine question. Was he black, or was he white? I could never decide

He is of Martiniquais descent, I think Thierry Henry is too. So, kind of?

That explains it. So his forbears were from Martinique ?

Regarding Julien's superb moment v Millwall has anyone spotted that prior to the Reid goal the one and only Harry Kane was involved in clearing the ball which was of course punted back in for Julien to flatten Forde? The only surprise is that Kane didn't claim he got a touch on Reid's piledriver! :lol:
