City players in the trades?


Recommended Posts

Was out for a run earlier and went past the Chandlers down by SS Great Britain/Baltic Wharf. Made me think of Ricky Chandler playing for the great Terry Cooper in our basement days. Two trades right there. 

Any other players we've had that had surnames that were trades?

Not a trade, but always had a little chuckle to myself when we had Bryant & May in the same team

And when I see a Fowler Welch lorry I always think back to the Liverpool FA Cup ties

As for a trade - Robbie Turner
