  1. Did he appoint Big Ron initially or was that McGee? Either way it was his managerial choices after Ron left, the sacking of big Ron, not backing Di Cannio and leaving us in a worse state than when he took over that defined his legacy.
  2. Another vote for Hutchinson. I'd like to see him play/captain in the middle of a back three with Iorfa on the right and a new left sided centre back.
  3. Newcastle was also pretty hairy in the 88-89 season when we beat them 3-1 with that Hirst wonder strike. The coppers weren't too bothered about our safety that day either! West Ham away also mid to late 80s when we only took a few hundred and they ran into us at the end of the game. Villa away 86-87 when they got relegated and they ran into us after the game. Wolves in the FA Cup 89-90 having to walk back to the station solo and past the bridge boys waiting for us.
  4. I didn't go myself but that's exactly what my mate said it was.
  5. Big Ron leaving was the game changer. Had he stayed or had we appointed someone of equal ability I'm sure we would have gone on to win more trophies possibly even a league title.
  6. Had a lively walk up the hill back to the car after the game!
  7. Very good points but I would also add Atkinson to that. Watching him put a team together was almost like someone putting a jigsaw together piece by piece.
  8. Another example of poor management from Francis
  9. I never bought into that either. We had some good players that could and did play. In that 83-84 team Sterland, Irish, Megson, Shelton, Bannister and Varadi were all very good footballers.
  10. Didn’t realise he was 27 thought he was about 25/26. Tho to be fair he pretty much already is one hell of a player now.
  11. Cashing in while he could I guess.
  12. Joao had the lot just lacked consistency. Maybe it’s more of a case of needing time to mature, improve and find that consistency than needing a fresh start. Strikers tend not to hit their pick until their late 20s. The way he’s going he’s going to be one hell of a player at 28.
  13. He scored 16 goals for forest playing on the wing and was sold after a season for 7 million. No way was selling him for 1.5m the season before a good deal.
