It was 97
After Watson’s care-taker period. Obviously nobody wanted the job, so they ended up with Howard. How lucky we were in that we survived the 97/98 season. Going down then and we would have disappeared from the map.
…would have been 95/96 I think. He was high profile on Sky and a breath of fresh air in the way he spoke about football.
Probably would have been a disaster though, and I didn’t realise he was a misogynistic sexist gobshite back then.
Excluding our transfer sagas like Fernandes, Riquelme or Arshavin because they're obvious.
I remember us being linked with Michael Essien, Peter Cech and Yaya Touré before the big boys got involved.
Also thoroughly regret not signing Nigel Martyn sooner (before he went to Leeds).
Who do you remember our being linked with that you wish we'd signed?
