Ha ha. Put the same thing at the same time.

Yes I remember it like it was yesterday. All 30,000 plus crowd went quiet for a second until it came back off the post.

Remember it clearly...

If I'm right it took the ball 7 minutes from leaving his foot to hitting the post...

The best player I’ve ever seen at Wednesday, best player in his position in the league and arguably the world . He would have walked into milans side the best in the world at the time. Absolutely first class player and professional

Brilliant player and I can think of only Dan Petrescu and Des Walker who could compete with him, Oh and Mick Pickering of course.  

 

Petrecu and walker couldn’t even lace his boots, can’t comment on Pickering he was before my time.

I remember him v Blackburn 2nd leg League Cup semi at home 1993 and he tried a fancy pass with side of his foot across the area, he totally mis hit it and hit his own post.

this is my over- riding memory of Roly (good as he was)  WTF:

Petrescu laced his boots and wore them.  Was a class player and was a powerhouse at Chelsea and took England apart when he played for Rumania.  We should have offered the world to keep him on the books. 

 

As much as love Roland for me he has to share top spot with Petrescu. 

 

Pickering was way above both :biggrin:

Roland could defend though Mycroft. Something , for my money, that Petrescu showed zero interest in.

There was a very strong rumour at the time that Manchester United wanted him but the board knocked back Fergusons for the 300 and odd k asked for as he was in trouble at the time and had already invested the bulk of their kitty on Pallister and Ince in the summer.

 

As it goes, Mark Robins famously saved red noses job and the following summer they signed Dennis Irwin. (Though he later ended up at left back)

All about opinion, mine is Peterescu was a class player but Roland was a World class player. 

Roland wins by quite a distance imo and probably most others on here.

 

You're right about Pickering though, he was tall.

Sorry pal like I said can’t comment on Pickering, but Petrescu wasn’t even close to Nilsson, and I mean not a patch, Nilsson was the best in Europe for me at his peak, Petrescu wasn’t even i the top 3 right backs of his time in the top division let alone Europe.

He was never the best in Europe I’m afraid.

A different level. Totally class that man.

 

One great memory if it serves me right was cup semi final second leg at home. We were 0-1 and he passed back to Woods, woods missed it (it was a little wild the pass) and it struck the post. Would have been 0-2 and level on aggregate. Am I right here or is my memory playing tricks ???

I remember the gasp on the kop to this day...... but that aside what a class act he was!

Sorry mate but you're wrong.  Ask Chelsea fans how good he was.
