This article is in decent shape, but it needs more work before it becomes a Good Article.|}}

  1. Is it well written?
    A. The prose is clear and concise, and the spelling and grammar are correct:
    {{subst:#if:In the Bristol Rovers section, first paragraph, is this sentence right ---> "The loan expired in May after playing five times for club"? Is a word missing?
    Added "the". Mattythewhite (talk) 23:16, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

    Added "the". Mattythewhite (talk) 23:16, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
    Check.|}}
    B. It complies with the manual of style guidelines for lead sections, layout, words to watch, fiction, and list incorporation:
    {{subst:#if:In the International career section, you might want to link "marking", for your non-football readers, cause I had a hard time understanding that sentence with Carruthers marking Cristiano Ronaldo during that tournament.
    Added wikilink. Mattythewhite (talk) 23:16, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

    Check.|}}
  2. Is it verifiable with no original research?
    A. It contains a list of all references (sources of information), presented in accordance with the layout style guideline:
    {{subst:#if:All the BBC links have different url paths, so you might want to update that.
    I don't really understand what the problem is with these links; the "(info)" section for each of the URLs state "http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1" redirects to "http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2", but when either is entered into a web browser the former is displayed.

    Oh, I know, I've experienced this problem.|All the BBC links have different url paths, so you might want to update that.

All in-line citations are from reliable sources, including those for direct quotations, statistics, published opinion, counter-intuitive or controversial statements that are challenged or likely to be challenged, and contentious material relating to living persons—science-based articles should follow the scientific citation guidelines:

    B. It stays focused on the topic without going into unnecessary detail (see summary style):
    {{subst:#if:|{{{3bcom}}}|}}
  4. Is it neutral?
    It represents viewpoints fairly and without editorial bias, giving due weight to each:
    {{subst:#if:|{{{4com}}}|}}
  5. Is it stable?
    It does not change significantly from day to day because of an ongoing edit war or content dispute:
    {{subst:#if:|{{{5com}}}|}}
