    Hi, I've got this shirt here from when I was around 13/14.

    I can make sense of a few signatures (Scott Loach, Marvin Sordell, Craig Forsyth, Michael Bryan + Gavin Massey) but I'm struggling on a few. I've tried correlating the numbers to the shirt but I think I may have used the season previous or something because they don't seem to add up!

    Does anyone recognise any name's here?

    28 is Chez Isaac for sure. Not sure if he ever made an appearance for us though.

    I think the numbers are correct. If so you've got Dale Bennett, Chris Iwelumo, Josh Walker, Ross Jenkins, Britt Assombalonga...David Mirfin? I bet the sophisticated looking one in the top right is Gilmartin.

    That’s a 2011/12 shirt. You can tell because Joe Garner has missed again

    I thought that was Big Chris but couldn't recall ever meeting him!

    That team was so bad.

    Sean Murray and Michael Kightly saved us from certain doom.

    One to the top right of the badge looks like Deeney. It's certainly from the 2010/11 season - because GT was Chairman and I remember the sponsorship deal. Think we finished 14th that season. Doyley could also be one of them. Sort of wish they would make their names a little easier to read ;)

    Ah thanks!

    I've correlated that with a copy of the autobiography he's recently published and he is on there, just furthest left of the Burrda symbol.
  8. I see your signed shirt and raise you my signed ball!

  11. Only one I can be sure of is some guy called Burrda. "He'll f***ing burrda ya" as the song went.

    Richard Flash and Alec Chamberlain? Also its clearly Paul Zon and above him is Matt loop-de-loop.
  14. Sounds about right. I got it around 1997 I think. Graham Taylor, Nigel Gibbs, Mark Rooney, Richard Flash, Alec Chamberlain all date it to around then.

    The others are better in real life. Look much more faded in the pics.

    I can also make out "Moisten Needle Before Inflating". Could be taken either way I guess. ;)

    I was thinking it would be a genius signature for Matt Spring
