Yes surprisingly he is actually pretty good and refreshingly candid.

On Gabby as a person we all know and probably does too that he let the club and fans down. And he canít turn back the clock. Iím sure he is delighted that we are doing well and the club isnít the gong show it was when he played. But he has always been involved with Acorns. And itís great to see him becoming an ambassador for the club in charitable work. Heís never had to do it and he certainly doesnít have to do it now. But I think heís trying to make amends in a way back in the community and for that he should be commended.

Agree TV, never too late to make amends

Didn't he donate quietly £200,000 to Acorns a few years back? I'll always have a soft spot for Gabby the man and player. People moan about his last few seasons with us but he was starved of service. He doesn't need to make amends, we just need to remember it wasn't just a shit time for supporters..

I like him more as a pundit than I did as a player

Deleted his Twitter account apparently because all of those brave motherf***ers sending his racial abuse.

Yep, I'm the same. Think it must've been a challenge for anyone really to go from an England player & on the brink of Champions League football with the club you support, then just to see the whole thing disintegrate at first hand.

Not condoning his actions at all, but I've a certain amount of sympathy for his plight. Comes across as a decent person generally.

He certainly wasn't starved of chips and cake.

I would like to like him more than I do but he has a lot of bridge building to do as far as I am concerned for the central part he played in the humiliation and rejection of the excellent players who were not in his "gang" that eventually saw us flushed down the toilet of the Premiership.

As flat as a pancake. Amazing though how much personality he shows now compared to the "obviously...yeah" interviews that peppered his playing career.

He was a bit of a silly pup at various points in his Villa career, mainly towards the end but you'd have fun, supping a pint with him. Same goes for Bruce and McLeish. A great bunch of lads.

He shouldn't have to delete his account to protect himself from this. Twitter should be deleting the racist scumbags attacking him!

I think Gabby is really good on Talksport. Darren Bent too, really good. I usually listen to what they have to say and it usually makes sense.

Wasnít/isnít he an Arsenal fan?
