    Munari was alright i thought, filled a gap when required that season.

    Yes - stopped by a donkey.

    And then missed the FA cup final as a result.

    Morrow, Andy Kennedy and Tony Meola. 3 worst players I have seen play for us. Samba Diakite in more modern times.

    I remember Morrow playing left back and being as fast as my 80 year old nan at the time. Adams had the right thing in his mind.

    My word he was dismal.
    I'd be hard pressed to say who was the worst him,Senior,Dixon or Morallee . Whittingham wasn't good either.

    Andy Kennedy was a bit of a clown but did score one spectacular goal, in a cup tie I think.

    I’ve just remembered: Kenedy. One substitute appearance then sent back to Chelsea.

    I remember that one 'fondly', luckily I only had to get back to Leeds and not lovely Garston! Was the game after the United win, so naturally I was pretty confident, but alas we put in a stinking performance...

    Agree with the premise but rather bizarrely Aloi was signed when we were back in the championship

    Here are some players that many of you will probably remember, but I was personally surprised about some of the stats I found out about them: -

    Tony Daley - Winger 98/99 - Because I remember him so well I was surprised to find out that he actually only played SIX times for us. I have fond memories of one of those games which I think was away at Birmingham or Villa? Anyway I remember we did a 15 to 20 minute continuous chant of "Elton Johns Taylor Made Army" during that game which only stopped when the said Mr Daley scored what I think was the winner.

    Chris Day - GK 99/00 - Another I remember well and again I was surprised to find that he played so few games for us only ELEVEN!

    Colin West - Centre Forward 84 to 86 - I expect most of you will remember him very well as he scored 45 goals while he was with us, but what I found interesting is that his last game for us was away to Chelsea on May 5th 1986, which many of you will remember because we won the match... ​
    FIVE -ONE!!!
    Many of you will also remember that football hooliganism was pretty much at it's height at that time and that Chelsea fans were a notorious bunch of "knuckle Draggers" However, because I was so deliriously happy I did not care a jot and I walked down the road right outside The Bridge singing at the top of my voice "5-1 to the golden boys" . My mate "Big Pete" who was 6'5' in his stocking feet, was telling me to shut the **** up, but I did not care and carried on, I'm still amazed to this day that we made home alive.

    Looked quite bright too, in a dire performance away at Burnley. Now a regular at Granada, on the opposite flank from Dimitri Foulquier. Kenedy has even scored in the Europa League this season, and Foulquier set up their winner against Sevilla this weekend.

  26. Yes but teams have to wait 24hrs before they can sign him.
  27. Yes away to southend I think. Great goal from about 25 yards.

    Hahahaha, a team of ******* Watford rejects are in the Europa League! Compared to them, Granada's former charge Allan Nyom is feckin' John Barnes!

    You got carried away after that 5-1 at Stamford Bridge, but I'm afraid you've got carried away again now. Colin West had a very good season-and-a-bit with us before Souness nabbed him in his Rangers Anglo revolution, but he certainly didn't score anywhere near 45 goals. If he had done he would have been off to Real Madrid rather than Scotland.

    Whoops! My mistake it was 45 APPEARANCES!!! I looked at the wrong column :oops: It was 23 goals.

    Seconded. The hair, the wrist brace, the novelty of a centre mid wearing the no.3 shirt. Cult hero status, for me. Also scorer of one of my favourite goals in one of my favourite games, the 3-1 win against Millwall. Was sat right behind it, sweetly struck half volley.

    The kit, the pre-match display and 3 cracking goals, great day.

    Bamber was pretty awful but I think Quinn probably takes the award. I hated Dixon. Moralee scored against the scum so he's fine

    Just saw Marco Davide Faraoni has extended his contract at Hellas Verona. Always liked him, remember him having a ridiculously good first touch, but maybe not fully suited to the Championship. Seems to have had a decent career since leaving, mostly in Serie A.
