    Ian Chapman, from the south

    A very popular player for us until he was released in 1996. For those of you who remember him, how old do you think he was when he left the Albion? No googling! I was very surprised to learn the answer!

      I seem to recall him being a teenager when he made his debut, just 17 I think, and guessing that that would have been about 86, I would guess about 27?

      Couldn't wait for a response, and googled it now. My memory is not so bad.

      I'd go along with that although I thought he was 16 when he made his debut?
      football is just a mechanism for scooping up small amounts of money from a huge number of people in order to put huge amounts of money in the pockets of a small number of people

      He made us debut at St Andrews aged 16 something, I didn't go but remember Tony Millard bleeting on about his age on the radio. We lost 2-0 I think.

      Seeing as Chapman had just become Albion's yougest-ever debutant in the Football League, I should think he would have every right, and indeed would be expected to, bleet [sic] on about his age.

      I think, but I may be wrong, that it is the cleverest quip I've ever seen on NSC.

      Chappers didn't have a very happy day yesterday.
      Hillians lost 0-6 at home
      I have not forgiven Lewes Council, or DeVeggie, or Archer, or Bellotti, or Stanley, or Bailey, or Whiteside, or Challis, or Saints and Spurs for that 0-0 in 1978.
      I don't get over things and I don't move on easily. OK?

      Think he was 28.

      Will never forget his thunderbolt in the 3-3 v Bournemouth at home.

      The northstand cried shoot in unison, he did, and it flew in to the top corner.

      This subject is worth a thread of its own.
      Mine was Gary Stevens
