Strange Iv just looked at him on Wiki says he played 145 times for us yet didn’t score so thought I was going mad but now you have said that too

Maybe it was Nicky Mohan? They looked kinda similar.

Wikipedia only includes League goals on it's main apps/goals stats. I think the match you are referring to was a League Cup tie.

Was that the game when Schmeichael took out Speedie and wasnt sent off. Had about 10k there that night and a young Ryan Giggs ran us ragged.

Yes I think so. 1993, we took about 8000 fans, lost 5-1.

Lars-Gunnar Carlstrand.  I was at Ewood Park when O'Neill tried to bring him on as a sub after he was apparently amazing for the reserves... and he didn't get chance before the final whistle.

 

So he's someone who NEARLY played for us, but this thread made him pop into my head.

 

We would have some fun trialists in pre season friendlies.  There was an Italian lad who looked like Jesus and played like he thought he was George Best and a Polish lad who played loads for Dundee United.  I remember really hoping we signed both... and wish I could remember their names now!

Just been reminded of Miguel Vitor. On loan from Benfica.

 

He looked exciting but got a bad muscle injury in that farcical match in the snow vs Ipswich.

 

We all wanted to sign him but thought he'd be too good for us and go onto play for one of tge big 3 Portuguese teams. 

 

His career never really took off though.

That's the lad! Thanks!

 

Still desperate to know who the long haired Italian winger was who played for us in a pre season friendly.  He'd played briefly for Milan and Torino, I believe.
