Turkish delight?

Interesting that Turkish international Colin Kazim-Richards, born in Leytonstone, played in the first half of the 2-1 win at Colchester. Kazim-Richards looked something of a journeyman at Sheffield United, but his career really developed when he moved to Fenerbahce and then Galatasaray. He had a fine tournament in Euro 2008 and scored a cracking goal as Turkey reached the semi-finals. Though Kazim-Richards comes with plenty of baggage. At Fenerbahce there was an argument with fans when he was substituted, a red card for swearing at the ref, a controversial night out as his side lost while he was suspended and a car crash, events that contributed to his being loaned out to France. Worth a trial though, as he clearly has some talent.
