Hendrie Enjoying Life in the East

Hendrie Enjoying Life in the East
When he signed for the Blades in 2007, his attitude suggested Lee Hendrie was a big fish in a small pond.

Fast forward three years, and the former England and Aston Villa midfielder is a blue whale in kitchen sink as he turns out for illegal Indonesian outfit Bandung FC.

Hendrie, who struggled to hold down a first team place at Bramall Lane has found a regular squad place hard to come by since departing and after unsuccessful spells at Bradford City and Mansfield Town made the move east to the fourth most populated country in the world, and one with an illegal Premier division.

However, despite this, Hendrie is happy with his new surroundings.

'It's a little bit different,' admitted Hendrie. 'I didn't know anything about it and was shocked when I first came here, but the people have been really good to me. I think if that hadn't been the case I might have gone home, but people around the place have been first-class to me.'

His side currently sit bottom of the league, after struggling at the start of the season winning just one of their first nine.

seems daft to say but i used to love watching some of the things he could do with the ball at half time...several times the other players jsut used to watch him adn clap him as he did trick after trick...there was a time when KB used him in cup games where i thought he was going to come good but he never used him in league games which cant blame him really..although he might have been ok at wembley! waste of a talent but i guess he's symptomatic of modern football - too much money too soon..remember being told that he turned up for first day of pre-season in the flashiest morgs and them knew then what they had got! ah well, playing in indonesia beats my job so good luck to him

Sheps you cant have the words 'Hendrie' and 'Enjoying' in the same headline, simply doesnt work! Bet he's back in Brum by the end on the month.

He told Leon Lekaj (young lad who was at Wednesday) that he'd give him a ride in his Bentley after the reserve game they were playing.
