Just saw an interview with Dyche where he mentioned his name. No idea he was a goalkeeping coach at Burnley and got me thinking, what happenes to him? Did Phillips replace him? 

Got an injury he never properly recovered from. Shame because Billy the Fish would have been a legend here.

Always remember Brentford away. Mercer came flying out to clear the ball into the stands. Pointed at the Brentford fans just before he connected and drilled a beauty straight into them. 

They went beserk, we pissed ourselves!!!

For me he was the best City keeper I've seen in the few games he was here - would have been class. A real shame he got injured - in the shower wasn't it or something? Went on to coach at Wolves but didn't realise he's now at Burnley.

Mercer had a some kind of deep seated groin injury that  couldn't be fully diagnosed and therefore not treatable.

He retired prematurely.

Glad he's still in the game tho.

At the time Mercer was here, I would have been 4-8.

I can remember almost nothing from when I was that age except him being one of my favourites for a while (replaced by Scott Murray).

Reckon I must have seen a number of his few appearences for us (wiki says 32 in all comps!)

He did his groin in. I know this because at the launch of the now SC&T back in 2005 he came to the evening we put on where loads of ex players were invited. My mum drunkenly asked him why he didn't play for us anymore, he said he'd done his groin in, my mum may have offered to rub it better for him.

I may have wanted the floor to swallow me up! :fear:

Yeah what was the deal with that number 2? Really bloody annoyed me.

Wasnt it as simple as the number 1 was taken so he took the next nearest available number?

I think I remember him breaking down in tears when being interviewed on the pitch after announcing his retirement. Nice to see he's still involved in the game and passing on his experience to others, top player.
