Vincelot holds no grudges over Albion exit

The Argus: Romain Vincelot had his contract terminated at Albion by mutual consent Romain Vincelot had his contract terminated at Albion by mutual consent

Romain Vincelot has no complaints about his Albion career turning sour and says he is in the "best job in the world".

Vincelot has linked up with Leyton Orient under former Seagulls chief Russell Slade after his contract was terminated by mutual consent.

The French utility player has only good memories of his 18 months at The Amex, depite dropping out of first team contention and being invited to look for another club.

Vincelot, 27, told The Argus: "I had a great start, then I had a problem with my shoulder and I played all season with it. My injury and also sometimes my versatility worked against me.

"I had a good chat with the manager at the end of last season, just after my operation. He said I could stay if I wanted to or look for another club. I told him I would look for something else to get more games, then I was no longer in his plans which was fair.

"This is the best job in the world. There are always things that are a bit bad or hard but you are a footballer, so you cannot complain too much. There are sometimes things you are not happy with but you have to look at the bigger picture."

Top guy.Like he said,best job in the world.Most men would do it for free.Thats why i hate vile freeloaders that make nothing of it.Like the Leeds player that said in the sun this weekend."Most footballers don't know how lucky they really are."He also said,fans have a right to get on players backs,and give them a hard time.They pay their wages at the end of the day.100% spot on.

You're unsurprisingly wrong - most men could not afford to do it for free. How would we put food in our kids' mouths? But still, good to see a player appreciate the decent hand he has been dealt.

Agree to a certain degree. Vincelot is certainly a top professional and behaves in a immaculate fashion. Good player too I always thought. As he said, versatility can be a double-edged sword.

The key word in the rest of your comment, Freeloaders, is "most". Yes, most fans would play football for free, lots even pay for the privilege. But, not all. There must be some players out there that simply see it as a job just like us normaltons! This possibly could effect performance in some way but, if a player is talented enough to make up for any downfall, I don't see a problem with that. Surely, thats like anyone else in any other walk of life.

As for giving players of your own team a hard time, I guess we do pay their wages in a way and therefore entitled to have an opinion, but can't see it ever helps! No player goes out to play badly. It's not in their interest even if they don't want to fight for the club they are with.

Are these the friend of mine that you claim 100% FACT to not exist? But answer the question - how many blokes do you know (actually KNOW) who could afford to be a full-time footballer without any financial remuneration?

PS: I couldn't, but then the days of my being paid to play football have passed. Still, I love the game enough to keep playing for free, but I have to have a proper job too to put a roof over my family's heads etc.

Im with VileFreeloader on this. Romain did nothing wrong at our great club,other than not be the,right player at the right time. Personally i thought he had enough scope to cover a lot of positions,all credit to a superb athlete,trying to ply his trade.

I wish Romain and his family all the very best for the future,with the knowledge that he will benefit any club he joins. UTA

I don't recall ever claiming to STILL be earning money from playing. It IS possible to still need proper training without earning anything from playing an actual match. To be honest I would have expected you to respect the fact that I am no longer taking anything financial out of the game? (Best to reread posts before incorrectly quoting them.)

Wow, almost word for word what you posted in the other thread. Bored, much?

And since when has it been a truism that only those making money out of the game know anything about it? Some of us have lives that encompass things other than football. Astrophysics in my case. (Look it up in a dictionary.) And family. Oh, and my own business.

Still, nice for you to finally admit you are yourself a 'vile freeloader'.

I still wince at the memory of poor Romain, having just dislocated his shoulder, having Casper trying out a bit of homegrown medical intervention by pulling on it sharply before our medical team could get to him. I thought at the time that would have stung a bit. Bonne chance Romain.
