The best debut in a Wednesday shirt...

Recommended Posts

Roland Nilsson against Luton I think. Arrived late at night before the game had a few passes with one of the coaches then set the standard for the rest of time at Hillsborough.

Joey O'Brien was very good on his debut vs Hull and scored a goal too.

Regi Blinker away at Villa, unfortunately his best game for us.

He was brilliant in the first four games the next season, particularly against Leeds away. Absolutely siled down the whole game if I remember correctly.

It's going back a bit, but Jack Whitham really hit the ground running. Had a big transfer to Liverpool and was never heard of again.

Not the debut as a whole, but David Prutton's goal on debut last season against Rochdale in front of the Kop (the volley from a half-cleared corner on his wrong foot) was probably one of the most stunning ways to introduce yourself to a new set of fans i've seen.

Agree with this 1967 I think v Burnley we won 7-0  Jack scored 2 and we got a penalty in last min, everyone wanted him to take it but Jim McCalliog took it and missed. When he went to Liverpool he scored a hat-trick on his debut but was injured soon after and had to retire.

I remember Guy Whittingham getting a brace at Goodison but not sure if it was his debut. I was early in his career with us I remember that

 

Wasn't that when Klas Ingesson scored also?

Not sure we had a few goods wins at Goodison at that time. I think the game I'm talking about we won 4-1 and PDC took the wee wee

 

We won 3-1 and Pembridge (2) and Di Canio scored.

Regi Blinker's double? Guy Whittingham's brace?

 

Or maybe Ritchie Humphreys' volley against Villa. Would be a little surprised if someone said Rodri though...

 

which debut performers can you think of..?

Whittinghams brace at Everton, boxing day. Got bladdered on inter city owl by smuggling a bottle of rum in a McD's cup and drank it on way to game. I think i was 14?? All i can remember is looking out of window and seeing Des Walkers teeth as we passed players coach and my mates mum was a few rows ahead of us so got bollocked for spitting cookies in her and everyone else hair as i stood on my seat singing.

Graham Hyde at Man City. I wondered if Shez would get his place back.

26/12/1994 Guy Whittingham debut, Bright and Ingesson bagged as well

Whittingham followed that up by scoring another double in a 5-1 win v Coventry at S6 in the next game
