Gary Monk Hillsborough Debut - 14th Dec 2002

Recommended Posts

I've blotted this from my memory, but as a reminder to you all how long we've been in, and below,  this god awful division I found a picture of The Monk during his Hillsborough playing debut at Hillsborough. A 2-0 home defeat to Gillingham. 17k home attendance on a Saturday in December. 

 

He partnered Tony Crane at CB and we had Kuqi and Sibon up front. (Remember Kuqi was one of the first to through his hat into the ring for the Managers job?)

 

Chris Turner was the newly appointed Manager and we were heading for relegation. The squad was in disarray and the main news was the Coop Bank. Things aren't great, but they've been far far worse. And Gary Monk has seen the abyss we've climbed out of. 

 

Good Luck Gary Monk

17k at home to Gillingham.  What a support base we have.

 

Did you know?

 

George Weah is the only Liberian President to score 3 competitive goals against Gillingham?

 

You do now.  #footballgenius

Those were the days. We really had stuff to moan about back then.

Didn’t he sign on loan the same time as Adam Proudlock and Allan Johnston from Wolves?

Yes, he was only a loan signing. Turner, like everyone else could see we were going down. Loan signings were all we could hope to save us.

Monk replaced Haslam so that might be a bit awkward going forward

I don't think it will be an issue. Haslam was never big enough too play CB, that's why we were we were and why Monk came in.

Who was Green at right back? Completely expunged him from my memory.

I don't know, he couldn't have been that bad, or we'd remember him, but I do know Chris Turner had secured the services of Jon Beswetherwick by the end of the season...

Still completely blank.

 

Just googled him - turns out he's still playing. Become a Hereford stalwart and was Wales's youngest ever international. And still I don't remember him.

I never realised Proudlock came in at same time as Monk either

 

I’ve forgotten more about Wednesday than I can actually remember

 

Which probably isn’t a bad thing
