Thanks Heathrow, I bloody loved Gary Mac, in my memory Steve Thompson replaced him, but thinking back there may have been a bit of a gap between the two.

David Pleat did sign him a year later but for Luton.I don’t think he fancied him or Thompson didn’t fancy Luton.As after 5 games we swapped him for Des Linton and another up and comer.(Oakes?)
With the transfer windows now,you don’t get this situation where clubs make mistakes and immediately ship out after a handful of matches.It happened quite often.

Thracian called him 'Goal Smith' and then moaned at infinitum that he was the one that got away when he left. Much like every other youth player circa 2004-9

I know he isn’t on here anymore but is he still alive?

Collins John. Thought we'd signed a PL level striker at the time. When I think back to that era, it just shows you how good our recruitment is now. 

Pretty sure, if I recall correctly, he scored against us in the PL in 03/04.

 

Then he came here a couple years later... on loan?

can't remember ever seeing him play

Broke his leg 11 mins into debut league cup semi final v Wimbledon at home. Then did it again a few games after his comeback away at Chelsea

Correct. Lost 2-0. Izzet had a goal disallowed for nicking the ball from Van Der Saar as he went to kick it.

Mike Galloway 

 

Impressed if you can remember this one 

I remember being quite excited when we signed him from Celtic, only played a couple of games for us through with nothing he did really standing out.

Wasn’t he in quite a bad car crash which ended everything for him?

Yeah he only played 5 times for us.

First part definitely right. Maybe even scored twice? I thought he'd be good for us but, like every weekly signing we seemed to make at that time, he wasn't.

Two of the worst central midfielders i have ever ever seen (including Junior Lewis) - Jason Jarrett and Andy Johnson. What a heinous era.

I was about to say Jason Jarrett. Hopeless. And wasn’t Andy Johnson on a free the sole signing of the pre season that year? 
 

How times change.

We had a couple of promising young players that some might not remember.  
 

Lawrie Dudfield

Tim McCann

Stuart Wilson 

 

We also had Charlie Miller on loan in the late 90’s as well.

He won me countless silverware on an edition of Football Manager 

Yeah remember going down to the reserve games to see what 20 for finishing looked like.
