That ankle injury he got when he came on at half time to rescue a freaking Carling Cup match against Bolton (why, Houllier, why!) was the point at which he basically became a shell of the player he formerly was. That was around halfway through his first season and he'd been terrific up to that point. When he came back from that injury, he'd lost a huge amount of pace, it was ridiculous. Was still extremely talented with his reduced mobility - I mean, Rafa played him basically always when he was fit, and Rafa never had much room for luxury players - but never again would you see him running at defenders at full hilt. Bit similar to the Torres situation and the 2010 World Cup, honestly.

You look back at the medical department during those times as well, doesn't exactly fill you with confidence that the players had the best rehab possible. If we could have given him that, who knows, Kewell might have had a longer period at his best.

They royal fucked him over. Diagnosing blood poisoning from blister as gout another example.

The Kewell were looking for was the one who marauded for Leeds all the way to Europe. And as already mentioned players seem to get crocked more frequently when they make the move to the team.
Someone should do the right thing - go back in time to 1992 and destroy the codes to Championship Manager before it is ever released

Just read his interview on coaching the Watford U21s. Interesting stuff, wish him all the best.
Hodgson was a decent manager, without doubt in the top 1% of Football managers should we of said he is decent and made do.The same with Konchesky again if you look at people who play Football then he was definitely within the top 1% of people who play Football.

Was proper happy when we signed him, remember Rushie or Hansen saying we'd nabbed ourselves a new Ray Kennedy which only added to that excitement. We completely mismanaged him from the off though, he'd come off a season with Leeds where they'd played him when he should have been nowhere near the pitch and Houlier really ignored that from the off. I won't place it all on Ged, the medical department was well behind the standards Arsenal were setting at the time but the club as a whole could have handled it better. Harry used to get a tonne of shit for being a sicknote even though I'd argue he had a higher pain threshold than some of our more recent favourites, he was just royally bollocks'd.

If Kewell wasn't fucked by the time Rafa took over I'd have loved to have seen what we as a team could've done with him alongside Xabi, Masch and Stevie.

Wish him well at Watford, was an intelligent player as well as super talented so you hope he can have a positive affect whoever he coaches.

Harry Kewell sues Jeep over dropped sponsorship for his junior academy

Not sure what's going on, but apparently Fiat Chrysler Australia was providing Kewell with a free car while a former executive was siphoning off money for a "web services" company that he owned.

I thought he was a quality player, but his inability to stay fit was very frustrating... his injuries pretty much put paid to him, IMO.

The Aussies voted him their best ever footballer a couple of years ago.  :o

Best of luck to the fella in his retirement.
Tim Cahill's our best ever footballer in terms of contribution to the country. Scored a ridiculous amount of important goals (06/10/14 World Cups, multiple goals in Asian Cups + other important goals).

However Harry Kewell is easily the most talented. Had the most technical ability of any Australian I've seen.

I'm just glad Kewell was numero uno in Australia when I started watching football or else I'd be a blueshite right about now...

Never worked out for Kewell at Anfield, and I dont think a lot of the fans took to him the end, but for me I remember his goal in the Derby when Gerrard got sent off! :) :) :)
Boss goal and a boss game.

He flattened Gary Neville when we beat them 1-0 in the FA cup too after about 2 minutes. That's probably my favourite Kewell moment.

Also had a big hand in the Olympiakos game. As much as people like to give credit to Gerrard for that game, Kewell, Pongolle, and Neil Mellor all played their part too.

Kewell burned bridges with Leeds supporters when he played for Galatasaray

http://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2016/02/21/harry-kewell-shares-feelings-on-sleeping-giant-leeds-discusses-p/

Quote
...it was his move to Galatasaray in 2008 which really offended Leeds supporters.

As reported by BBC, two Leeds fans were sadly killed by Galatasaray supporters before a UEFA Cup clash in 2000 - when Kewell was still a Leeds player, a move which was seen as unforgivable for many supporters.

He was here longer than you tend to think and generally Rafa picked him when fit. Even in those group games v Porto and Marseille when we needed to win he started. Not quite sure when his last game for us was, can't remember him playing much after that.

Kewell has left his coaching position with Watford's U-23s, and is favored to get his first manager's position at L2 Crawley Town.

Good luck Harry. Along with Litmanen, he was probably the signing that excited me most back in the day. Awesome player in his pomp. Hope he does great - -comes across as a top fella.
