  1. Ability wise Guy Branston Attitude Bothroyd Value for money Abdi Arguably too many candidates to mention in the last 20 years though
  2. No respect for any dirty players ours or others, seen too many of ours crippled and careers cut short due to them. Big difference between the hard but fair type and the out and out dirty.
  3. So Hirsty was upset after being illegally tapped up, the club stuck to their guns and refused to sell. I'm hindsight should have sold but a fully fit Hirst and we may have won another cup.
  4. Here's the problem probably better than anybody we've had since him, but was a step down from the likes of Sterland, Nilsson and Harkes. For the £800k I think we paid a solid performer but we needed to sign better to progress.
  5. I'm with you, the badge on the 97 shirt is my favourite. I appreciate I go against the majority but I never really liked the minimalist owl however i feel the club is missing out on revenue by not using it on merchandise as there is a great demand for it.
  6. Not the only one who's failed to be fair, although he would be more fondly remembered if he had shown a better attitude. Getting rid of the likes of Pembridge and Magilton who both played consistently in the Premier league after our demise in the previous 18 months and replacing them with Scott and Sonner didn't help either.
  7. . If its from 1990 not a single Sheff Utd player gets in, even some of our players not getting in would improve their squad over the same period. Ie Petrescu, Alexanderson, Carbone.. Do it from 2000 and its more a contest. I did think of Deane but then thought about it and realised Fletcher is a better all round player.
  8. Maurice Ross, so bad he went after one game.
  9. Considering most of the first team squad is out of contract in eight weeks or so there would be very little incentive for them to defer any wages, especially as they may not get a new contract elsewhere any time soon. As for the others I suspect negotiations will be ongoing but I can't see an issue is delaying £2k a week on a £10k per week contract. Whilst for some it's a finance motivated reasons, others will make a social judgement call and take the money later.
  10. Anthony Gardner sadly another player whose career was beset by injuries.
  11. Sering as Worthington in both 80s and 90s, I would drop him from 90s and put Petrescu in there at LB. Also a controversial one but would go 433 and drop Bright and Put Jonk in a midfield three. I know Jonk gave up after his first season, but he showed enough class in the first year, I would love to have seen what he could do with him Sheridan and Palmer as a midfield three. If sticking to a 442 Again would swap Bright for Degryse nothing against Bright but I think he and Hirst would have done far better in the one season together if Hirsts injuries hadn't been about.
  12. Very 80s that's for sure, in fairness we have all seen far worse away kits in our time, just not our own.
  13. We were on there a while ago about Premier league teams, we were on 5 only Swindon was lower if I recall correctly
  14. Coventry in 87 CUP QF, truly expected us to win that one. Asked my kids the same question my son says Hull playoff. My daughters response was hilarious, she's never seen us beaten, I've managed to only take her to games where we have either won or drawn. She's now 20 so she's been bloody lucky 🍀
  15. Mark Proctor, if only for the goal that beat Everton. Before that game I can only recall defeat after defeat to them.
