Chris Kiwoyma. Was at Ipswich and a short time at Arsenal before Wenger.

Very good player at Ipswich, along with Dozzell.

Taiwo former Marseille taiwao?

Thunderous left foot shot.

Absolutely wayward, but I've rarely seen a football kicked harder.

Went to Milan and did nothing, but he was decent at Marseille.

He went and played for Getafe for a bit, think he's in Argentina now.

Stephen Mbia another from around that time, we were linked to him I think.

Always funny when players who were rubbish in England are somehow international stalwarts. Helder Postiga was my favourite of those.

Traore was at Boro for a while, even made it back to the PL briefly. He seemed decent at one point and just devolved into another Pulis Plodder.

I think your thinking of a different Traore, this one didnt play for Boro and hasnt played Premier League in 5 years

I was thinking about Forest, sorry. He was still a handy player in the Champo, but his decline was very steep.

Yakubu - decent for Pompey at the time 

Darren Huckerby - one of Cov’s best players when they were half decent. 

Aly Sissokho - terrible for Villa, had wiped him from my memory. 

Ruel Fox - one of Norwich’s best players back in the day.

Didn't taiwo score against villa on his debut? Or was that djibril cisse on his debut for QPR? I remember the score being 2-2 as bent scored a landmark goal (20,000 premier league goal?) 

I had a season ticket at the time and we were so shit under mcleish I got back from work that day and decided not to bother going to the game

Ruel Fox was one of my favourite non-Villa players as a kid, probably just because he was really fast I guess.

Jose Dominguez, was playing for Spurs against United in one of the re-run games on sky yesterday.

I remember this game, I remember the goals, I remember all of that Spurs team, I remember the kits, I remember the advertising boards. I do not remember this guy. Completely wiped from my memory.

His wiki tells me he played for Blues too.

...oh and he was God awful in this game. More one footed and weaker than Conor.
