However the real reason (being he could not get a game as Wheater is that good!) that the club kicked him out for buying 2 grams of coke off a youth team player. Said youth team player was busted with a bag of weed plus the fine marching powder. At court Woody said he gave the 100 quid to the youth player as he often gave the youth players cash (in nightclubs?) to reward them. Thankfully niether the coke or the weed belonged to the player. His Mum owned up to the weed and the coke, they were looking after it and did not know who´s it was.
Glad to see that after his injuries and split with Kate "the coke" Lawler (they dated while he was at NUFC, rumour was he was not injured but surving an unoffical drug ban!) he has learnt the errors of his ways.
Apperently he was also shocked at the house prices in London. With pads for a footie star starting at 3m, for youth team players at Chelsea, Woody was heard to grumble,
"4.5m for this tiny plot? I bought most of Boro for 56 quid and half a parmo."
