    No offence but so what - he isn't our player any more and hasn't been for a while.

    Nice to keep track with some of our better ex-players.

    Not sure whether I'm in the minority - but have always viewed the board as anything 'connected' to Leicester City FC - which for me includes ex-players and managers.

    personally, I'm always interested on how our ex-players are getting on ... I was never Nugent's biggest fan but he did play a significant part in our promotion and first season escape - even if he was never really good enough for the EPL (IMHO) .... in contrast he has proven to be a great player to help get a club out of the Championship.

    Rather ironically he could well be lining up against us in the Cup :)

    Great service for us when he was with us, liked Dave, always played with a smile and came across as a top bloke. Wish him well. I was hoping he was going to join Fulham, alway more difficult to hope nice ex players well if they join a team you dislike .

    If you want to know then he has quit football to become a jeweler.

    He was implicated in match fixing but found innocent and joined his mate's team to try to "regain his love for football" but guess that didn't work out for him - I remember reading that on here a year or so ago.

    Both Nuge and DJ Campbell are good barometers of where we have risen to in the footballing world ... in fairness Nuge would get nowhere near the current first team squad, even in his best years ... and DJ? ... a million miles away from where we now are.

    Forza Claudio (FIFA Coach of the year) :cool:

    I knew about the match fixing but probably more interested in where they played football
    e.g. Barry Hayles has made 20 appearances for Chesham United this season
