  1. Can only think of McGrath as being consistently and genuinely world class with who i’ve watched live.
  2. Again, going to go for who i’ve seen. Cowans was fantastic, as was Barry. However, Platt was something else. Work rate, awareness and goals. Just brilliant. Favourite winger - Tony Daley. Closely followed by Birch and Young.
  3. Going to go with who i’ve seen play. Dalian, Dublin, Carew, Benteke, Gabby, Angel, Tammy etc, all have given me many enjoyable moments. Special mention for Dean Saunders here. When Big Ron and Deadly Doug got him from Liverpool, I was so excited. Always thought he’d score when on the pitch and his partnership with Dalian nearly got us the league. Loved him at Villa. However, have to go for Yorke. Watching him develop as a winger then moving inside, some of his play was a joy to watch. Skill, goals, big smile.
  4. Owned such a quality porn video in my youth and rather than hide it, I had it on the video shelf in my room with all my other normal films. The secret of my parents not sussing was to label the cassette with “Italia 90 Highlights”. They never twigged
  5. Taxi for “The Asda” or “Mat Alan” should be no issue then?
  6. Alan Evans, McGrath, Teale? Seem to remember Kevin Gage never shirked a tackle either. Not many opposition defenders got the better of Carew in a tussle, but wouldn’t say he was a hard man. No doubt John Fashanu could handle himself - awoooooga!
  7. Arsenal had some great players in the early Premier League years didn’t they - Bergkamp, Henry, Petit, Vieira, Pires etc. Fantastic players and can’t argue with anyone suggesting Bergkamp or Henry as the best. For me though, loving the Premier League in the early years, it was great watching the arrogance of Cantona and the beast that was Peter Schmeichel. Followed by Ronaldo. Finally, by no means a great or best, but it was very enjoyable watching David Ginola produce some moments of magic.
  8. Taking Lingard as part of any Grealish transfer feels like the Stephen Ireland deal all over again. No thanks. If Grealish goes, I would want a straight cash deal.
  9. I have a mate who was interested reading this and wants to know if the growth thing only works on eyelashes?
  10. Gutted, but finally one in the bag after years of trying!
  11. I do remember it. I don’t think it was green sand, but sand that was sprayed or coloured by us? Come be wrong on this though. Remember Doug Ellis saying it was the best option for us until a new pitch could be laid. Around 91, 92 or 93 time I think? I definitely went to see us play Sheffield Wednesday at home and Les Sealey was in goal for us at the time (so not sure on dates?). Anyway, Les come out to do his pre match warm up and was laughing, shaking his head at the state of the pitch. It was really bad. Again, I could be wrong, but I think we played the game with an orange ball.
  12. No issue with that plate at all mate and wish Mrs F could knock something similar up, but then again I don’t turn down a lot of food. Probably why my daily workout is stretching for the remote!
  13. Blimey, Peter Reid just doesn’t age does he?
  14. The three you mention above are good shouts and would improve us for sure, but deals like that will only happen if we stay up and Leeds/Brentford etc stay down. Eze is another from the Championship that we should be eyeing up, but many clubs will be doing the same. Perhaps we could offer them Hogan, Lansbury or even Hourihane as part of any deal. If we need additional full back cover, then Rico Henry or Antonee Robinson should be considered. Either are upgrades on Taylor and could seriously push Targett for a starting place next season. Finally, and this is me being greedy really, but if Man Utd spend big on anyone, what about a cheeky bid for Axel? Would love to have him back in our squad.
  15. “Magic Merson”. His winner against Coventry at home and his goal at Everton were special moments for me, as was at both games. Met him at his book signing in Waterstones. Very pleasant chap.
  16. ^ it appears to be true, sadly. Truly shocking and thoughts and prayers with his family. RIP.

    Dean Smith

    Keep reading that we spent approx £130m on 13 players last summer? First i’ve heard about this? Can someone please explain (in detail) about what actually happened last summer and Smith’s role in all this. Thanks.
  18. Absolutely shameful and a despicable act to nature. I really do hate this world we live in sometimes. As an aside, my children are aged 8 and 5 currently and am trying to teach them the right values and to be kind everyday.
  19. Some footage of Purslow on the training ground carpark yesterday:
