Our cult hero archives continue with the inclusion of one Mr Jonathan Woodgate. @ the age of only 31 its uncertain if Woodgate has got another season left in him. Plagued by injuries throughout his career, Woodgate has been restricted to only one appearance in the last year. A fantastic defender, who has played for some big big clubs in the footballing world. The likes of Real Madrid, Leeds United, Newcastle United & Tottenham Hotspur.
Woodgate signed for Spurs for £7 million in January 2008 and became an instant cult hero @ The Lane with his match winning performance & goal against Chelsea in that seasons Carling cup final win. Since his arrival @ The Lane Woodgate has struggled with injuries but has still managed to make over 65 appearances for the North London team scoring 3 goals.
An England international Woodgate has 8 cap's to his name, although if it wasn't for injury & bad luck you could easily add another 50 to that 8. During his time @ Leeds Woody was tipped by many including Kevin Keegan to become a future England captain.
Woody's last appearance for Spurs came @ The San Siro. A game which has been labelled "Spurs greatest performance of modern times". Spurs won the game 1-0 with a late Peter Crouch strike.
With his contract up @ the end of the season it's unclear what the future holds for this talented player.
