May be you we’re right, thinking about it he could have been part of the Unsworth transfer!
I thought we bought him for a fee of about £3m. Didn’t seem a bad player before getting a terrible injury. I think we got David Burrows on a swap as part of the Tony Cottee transfer back to West Ham though
Came to think about it, wasn't Neil Pointon a makeweight in the transfer of Andy Hinchcliffe from ManCity, or is my memory doing tricks?
Funny that in 1985 we could still go and buy a player from Scnuthorpe United (Pointon) for a reasonably low price, and he could step in pretty quickly and do a decent if unspectacular job on the highest level. Wouldn't happen anymore. Not that we are playing on the highest level anymore either...
