Joe ParkinsonParkinson excelled in the trenches. Purchase for £250,000 on transfer deadline day in 1994, he was Mike Walker’s best buy. Under Joe Royle, the Dogs of War were unleashed and Parkison, Ebbrell and Horne became an uncompromising and fearsome midfield unit. While their football was anything but pretty, it succeeded in winning the FA Cup in 1995

Parkinson’s influence was noticed in the 1995/96 campaign when the team failed to register a single win during his absence. Injuries dogged Parkinson throughout the following season, so much so that he sought revolutionary surgery to rebuild his knee. He even played through pain to help in another battle against the drop in 1997. Two years later he retired to become a Fan’s Liaison Officer.
