And a strikers barren spell

 

"Here comes NN, finally back from 6 month knee injury. Probably in need of a lot of match training to get back to fitness before he can be back in contention, let alone score. But he's given a chance in the game's closing stages. 86 minutes on the clock, what can he do?"

 

... goes on to score a brace against Wednesday.

Professionalism. We brought Scottish international Jimmy Lang down to play for us in the 1870s. 
 

He was not paid by the club but instead gained employment with a company in Garden Street owned by one of the directors, Walter Fearnehough. Although the family business manufactured "Bayonet Spirals, Ledger Blades and Chaff Knives" Lang received no formal duties and he spent most of the day reading the paper.

 

Other players had been found jobs in the chairman’s factory etc before, but this was a first in that he really did no work at all. 
 

Professionalism was legalised soon after.
