 “what player have you forgotten “, is right up there with.

”hands up at the back if you can’t hear” 🤔

reminds me of whispering Ted Lowe

Jim Harvey

Came from Hereford hardly played for us and then went to Tranmere very sucessfully

TC at the time said he tried to sign Harvey for 2 years. He made his debut on a water logged pitch and disappeared. Very strange he was a quality lower league playmaker and had a very successful spell in a good Tranmere side.

Under used and played out of position, but I still liked him. Soren Anderson.

That goal away at Sunderland to get a 1-1 draw.... will never forget that.

Live on Sky. Battered for 90 mins and Welchy had the game of his life in goal.

Sunderland walked the league that year.

Some Egyptian bloke, Moetab or something. We signed him, but for the life of me, I cannot remember him playing. COYR

"Thanks for the deal. But can I have one last game with my old team?"

"Nope"

"Well, I'm playing anyway."

*rip up his contract*.

 

I believe we also had Wayne Hennessey on an emergency loan around 15 years ago, I thinks his only tilt for us was Carlisle away.

Wasn’t that John Ruddy?

You maybe right in that Ruddy did play for us, but after looking at Wikipedia we did indeed get Wayne H in for a month, but never used him.

Leigh was a loan keeper from Bournemouth, had one poor game at home to Walsall. Gary Smith was a forward with ability, apart from finishing. Had a number of good seasons at Bath City.

Ray Gooding was a loan from Coventry after the collapse, thankfully the FL decided we could not borrow players so he went back.

Mark Smith made one, I think, sub appearance after the collapse.

Billy Down was a left back, one game at Doncaster, last game of 81-82 season, then released. Met him, Terry Boyle and a couple of other players before the game, just walking down a street near the ‘stadium’
Nicky Reid was a nondescript loan at some point. For a while, we had so many of these that they blurred from memory.

Did we once sign this bloke?  I think he was out of his depth here though...

Or was I dreaming? 

Could have been a hero here Billy "the fish" Mercer, such a shame that injury robbed him of a career with us.

He went through a spell, near the end of his time at City, when he was signing players on loan every few weeks. They were all awful. The only one I can remember, but not his name, was the one with the long neck 

Can someone tell me this guys name, it’s been bothering me all night!

All I can remember is his long neck...
