Bolton Wanderers Message Board
That is the problem I think -- Hide is a *GOOD* player and not a FANTASTIC player. Perhaps he has realised this and thought that it would be better to retire while he is at the top of his footballing career and rather than play for lesser clubs over the next decade.
Good luck to him though, in what I think will be an acting career! It is a shame that he didn't get more games for Bolton - it may have helped.
