Bowyer made 265 appearances for Leeds and scored 55 goals and was also involved in the side that reached the semi-finals of the Champions League in the 2000/01 season.

However, Bowyer was suspended for the second leg, and the Whites crashed out to Valencia.

Many agree with Bowyer that they should have won something with the team that they had, including Mark Viduka, Jonathan Woodgate, and David Batty.

These comments from Bowyer have allowed some to express their feelings on the matter.

Bowyer was with Leeds from the summer of 1996 till January 2003 then he moved to United before Newcastle signed him in the summer of the same year.

Since retiring, Bowyer has become a manager, and he is currently in charge of the Addicks, having guided them to promotion last year from League One.

This season has been a bit more of a struggle for Bowyer, and Charlton are currently in 22nd place, but they did manage to beat the Whites at The Valley earlier in the season.

However, despite this, it is clear that Bowyer is still rated highly by many Whites fans who have lauded him with their responses.
