Interesting. I’ve just watched it too. Loads of it isn’t even from the Premier League, it’s from when we were in the Championship, which shows how long ago it was. There are clips repeated, as if they haven’t got enough material to work with, too. The clips of him jogging in an England training session aren’t exactly adding much either.

Who on earth is that meant to work for? Surely anyone interested in signing him can easily access dates clips of him anyway.
Just read on Football365 that he has played two under 23 games for Chelsea this season, both defeats and he stunk the place out in both.

Kevin Ellison. Where are they now?

Here actually (from the reliable BBC).

One player who makes almost every other player in the EFL, look like a youngster is Newport forward Kevin Ellison.

The 41-year-old, who has been playing since the last century, joined the Exiles in September after nine years with Morecambe.

Understandably he's primarily used in a 'super sub' role these days and he came up trumps on Saturday.

For the first time in his very long career he entered the field as his team's fourth sub after the EFL permitted clubs to use five replacements on Wednesday.

Thrown on with five minutes to play against 10-man Port Vale, Ellison bagged the winner from close range in the final of six minutes added on to send the Welsh side top of League Two.

That goal made Ellison, at 41 years and 272 days, the oldest scorer in the top four tiers since David Eyre scored for Oldham against Scunthorpe in May 2006 aged 42 years and 69 days.
