Player you loved that not many did

 Gerald Sibon.

 

Vastly under rated by some IMO.

Petter Rudi

 

I wouldn't say loved though...just appreciated more than most.

 

I also rated Trond Egil Soltvedt and I thought he did a good job for us, in a average team.

One player I really rated and was surprised he never really made it as a player was Patrick Collins.

Agree with others above that Lines and Rudi were underrated, and above all Sibon. I remember going once with a non-Owl neighbour around the 2000-2001 time, as we had a spare ticket. Think it was against Grimsby. We won 1-0 and Sibon scored - although he'd been getting stick from the fans most of the game. He was so confused by why Sibon was the one being singled out - "Seems like he's the only one who can play". A player with poise and skill at a time we didn't have much of this.

 

Another I would throw in the mix is Andy Hinchcliffe - who on his day was a really solid left back with a fantastic left foot - unfortunately he had a chronic knee problem that meant he played less and less for us - not his fault, but perhaps representative of the fag end of the Richards years where we handed out silly contracts to some players. And he still played about 90 times for us - much more than some who are fondly remembered.

I was pretty sad to see his career go the way it did, at first I thought he was one of the better youngsters we brought in that season.

Marc Degryse, good player with a return of goals from midfield that we’d kill for now, I was disappointed when he moved on.

Chris Lines was a cult hero.. not sure how he’d be regarded as unpopular.

I liked Bart Williams but the jury was out on him... although that was pre social media so it’s difficult to gauge the opinion back then.

I can understand that.

I used to think he was overrated. 

Never went so far as "dogs abuse", though.

Chris Morris

 

Used to get dogs abuse from the Kop, North, South and Lepp.

 

But i had a siege mentality for him and urged him to do well.
