Loving these threads lads. @Simon Paul
made me recall some players that I really rooted for but weíre ultimately shite.
John Oster - thought he was going to be a flying winger. He neither flew nor wung.
John Collins - I thought we were flush with cash, I thought we were buying stars, he came over from France and a great suntan. But kinda flattered to deceive.
Niclas Alexanderson - another who I thought was going to satisfy my winger fetish. I saw him control a ball dead after it was booted into orbit by the goalie, I was sold. I saw him play, I was gutted. I never gave up though and referred back to that deft touch on many occasions.
Phil Jevons - saw him do a back heel thingy once. Thought he was the absolute bollocks. Donít think I ever saw him again. But it didnít stop me wondering why he wasnít starting every week.
Mikel Madar - the nationality, the hair, the debut, the derby miss. What a player. Maybe. Probably not. Definitely not.
Thereís loads of others now Iím thinking about it. I think Iím a romantic at heart and believe every signing we made during my formative years was the signing that would win us the league.
