Surprised John McGinlay hasn't had more of a mention, went on to play for Scotland after leaving us and is a legend at Bolton.
Don't think anyone's mentioned Bomber either Him and Davey Walton were a superb partnership together and we let him go for next to nothing - went on to play in the premiership and at international level i do believe.
All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure.
I thought Richard Scott was absolutely class for 2 seasons, but then he got fat and cr@p and went to P'boro I think. Did he regain his form there? I know he went to Telford abd was cr@p there!
Gary Stevens scored 20 goals for us in the 80s one season, then the following season he was played in defence, and we gt rid of him a year later! That always disappointed me!
O'neil Donaldson was always a strange one, didn't get much chance with, went to somewhere like Mansfield the out on loan where he scored 7 goals in 4 games or something, next thing I know he's playing in the Prem with Sheff Wed! Maybe we should have given him more of a chance, although I think he's a centre half somewhere now
Isnt Mr gall at FC Copenhagen now, oh and whatever happened to the other dane Thomas Nielsen?. I'd nominate Andy Tretton from recent past. Or even Mickey Brown getting rid of once is bad enough but 3 times? .
Squire Maguire.. he is the reason number 11 is always my lucky number
as for the rest.. Wardle, Pearson, McNally, Wayne Clarke, and dare I say it, Ian Woan (sorry but if he was passing to the likes of Alan Shearer and half of Chelsea who work for the ball, go on runs losing defenders then you'd appreciate him more)
Gerry Daly on his day was in the words of Ant, "Quality"
Aussie now plays for Welling, just one division below us. He gets my vote (I've only been going eleven years though, never saw half these suggestions) Evo was, and is, rubbish. If overhead hooks upfield, usually out of play, are what you are after, then he's great. I think calling him a Wales international is overdoing it too, I saw that game and he barely touched the ball in a brief sub appearance.
Can't fault the work ethic, and I apologise for missing his second international appearance. Who was it against, out of interest? And did he start? In terms of dignity, yes he clapped the crowd and seemed emotional, but did he not also request a transfer, and then join a club in the same division to further his career? I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that at all, but any number of players have left with as much dignity - Pete Wilding stands out.
And he did score one against Stockport once that won me about twenty quid, so perhaps I'll reconsider.] Aussie was also the man who suggested to Jake that Pete could do a job in midfield alongside Dean Peer, so everyone has their flaws.
