Jack Keay...classy defender in old Div 3 Championship-winning team. Jim Holton - ok so he went to Man Utd. I think we may have found it difficult to have held onto him. Wardle, Evans and Griffiths and Peer.
Thought this was a thread about players the club had made a mistake in getting rid of, ir Freeing?
If so half the suggested players were sold.
From my 11years or whatever, I have to say that the releasing of Currie (sorry if I got the price wrong, just thought it was £70k) and Benny Gall (My hero) were big mistakes in my opinion.
However the releasing of Bomber has to have been the most rediculess decision ever, all he wanted was a longer contract on reasonable terms, comparible with his team mates (Dear old Fred did agree with him tho') and thus we lost half of our central defense partnership. Big mistake, as he just continued to blossm after his spell at the club.
Sorry, my error again. The partnership of Peer and Wilding has just lodged itself in my head, and I can't see Pete alongside anyone else in the centre of the park. A bit like Gerrard and Scholes, those two.

Rob we've had this debate before and I'm afraid that Benny Gall doesn't get any better with age. He was possibly the worst keeper we've had. Iagree about Currie though could have been top class had he had better attitude and a bit of pace. I remember first seeing him when he was on loan to us (york away I think). He was doing things that the rest of the team couldn't believe. Sadly he didn't do them often enough when we finally bought him.
