Vastly experienced at both club and international level the former England captain is very much at the veteran stage now. However Psycho proved he has lost none of his determination and bite with a series of outstanding performances for the Hammers during 2000-2001. Had a brief spell as manager at Nottingham Forest and, with that in mind, he jumped at the chance to join Kevin Keegan at Manchester City as player-coach.
