The utter grimness of our failed transfer policy after we'd qualified for the Champions League was emphatically underlined when we let Pistone go, only to re-sign him a few weeks later because we didn't have adequate cover. 

That was the worst, Moyes was proper embarrassed

So grim, so small-time.

Dinamo Bucharest et al.

I remember all the paper talk of Bellamy, Parker, and Forsell (all exciting propositions at the time) and we got in Phil Neville.

I went looking for Forsell, he was meant to be staying in Beetham Tower on old hall street

Legend, really?

An argument that pops up with regularity.

I think, as a club, the periods between winning nothing and being good are long enough that any player that wins something needs to be considered a legend.
Ferguson got an FA cup medal with us.

Conversley, the periods of success have come frequently enough that any player that doesn't actually win anything shouldn't be considered a legend.

In the great park i would build outside a stadium i would build for us there would be a forest of statues.
the statues would be of our greatest players.
The entry requirement would be to have won something. So Duncan and Gary Ablett are getting statues and, i'm afraid, Cahill and Arteta are not.

Vote 'Mick 1995'

Don't me wrong here, I loved Dunc, he was unplayable sometimes and the passion he has for the club and us fans is something special, but a legend he is not

If not him then who? Have we even had one (a legand) in the last 30 years in your opinion?

I don't think anyone would dispute Southall, and he finished playing for us around '97 - any since then?

[Genuine question BTW]

Ermmmm, the only one I can think of is Cahill

What about Bob Latchford?

One of my dads fav ever players, loved him

Jesus saves, but Latchford nets the rebound
