David Seaman retires from football at the age of 40.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/foot...ty/3394397.stm

I would like to thank Seamo for his contribution to football, for england, and the clubs he has played for, especially for Arsenal. He had helped Arsenal to manyh titles, and now retires a true legend!

How will David Seaman be missed. My memory of him is having two testimonial matches and not giving a penny to charity.
Maybe now he'll have time to cut that pony off!

I take it you're not an England fan (at least not a true England fan)...

you mean the true england fans that threatened him and called him a "****** ******" about a million times after he let that goal in against brazil...then acted as hooligans in the streets?

And obviously not an arsenal fan, or a fan of any of the other teams Seamo played for.

Shame we remember him for all that, otherwise it would just be the Nayim lob and the outstanding Euro 96!

shame.... he was a great keeper for the Gunners and England... does anyone remember that save against Sheffield Utd in the FA cup semis last season?

altho probably good he retired when he did - best to go out on top.

I've seen a better save from Schmeichel but the fuss was made due to his imminent departure. Nevertheless a quality save, maybe he should've gone out earlier but at least now he can concentrate on his beloved fishing. He has a net fetish methinks...

true he should REALLY have retired after the FA cup final... but at least people still sortof remember him now........ it's not like he's ending in the 3rd division or has made lots of gaffes in the last few months.

Suppose now young Casper Schmeichel might get a game or two for City... if he can be as good as his dad City will have a huge asset.

I don't reckon that anyone who saw that save would ever forget it. I so thought that that was going in, and then out of nowhere, Seamo's hands came and scooped the ball out! Brilliant!

Well i wasn't surprised.
He used to be a great player, but he is way past his best, and has to have time to concentrate on his sports related TV career!!!
