    Oh yes, loved Rod!
    I was more excited by Mickey Thomas signing.
    Daniel Ortega must go. Hero turned villain. Murderous scum.

      I saw SAVAGE on the back of a shirt one late Friday afternoon at Withdean, which was before his loan was common knowledge, the knowledge rather than the player excited me.

      To be honest, that’s a very fair comment - you probably weren’t alone in thinking those thoughts... could so easily have proven to be the case. Upson fell into a similar category.
      Absolutely agree, he was fantastic for us and I can easily forgive his og V 'can't remember ' !

      But he signed in August?
      Yes, you're quite right. Loan signing in February, permanent signing in August.

      The shameless wallowing in nostalgia has obviously got to my head here!

      Kanchelskis. Early 2004, I was sure it was going to happen. Was even going to get the name on the back of my yellow away shirt that I’d recently brought ��

      Khouma Babacar last season (maybe season before).

      He was one of my goto signings on Football Manager and ended up being our all time top scorer in one save. I was ridiculously excited when we were linked even if it was only for a day or two.
      Babacar and CMS......

      Baz's biggest fan?




      I'm not the sort of fan that keeps abreast of other teams' players, as such it is rare that I get excited by players (the plus side is that I have a natural tendency to wait an see how they perform for us before writing anyone off!). To be honest, I didn't really understand the immensity of Vicente's pedigree while we were courting him. Returning players have that 'yeah, it's a final tour, it won't be the same' sense to them. I enjoyed the thread following him, but would be unlikely to consider myself excited about it. CMS, as top scorer in our division was one that I was mildly excited about. But it was probably Robbie Savage or Lee Hendrie coming in, because they were names I recognised. I don't know that either could be considered much of a success.

      One for us oldies.
      Couldn't believe it!
      And being overweight and possibly smoking did not stop his scoring a number of goals in the box, especially his bullet headers!

      Absolutely. Nothing comes close. Can't remember how many rumours there were though as rumours were a lot more difficult to communicate back then!
      You are right. I think it was a rumour first to me as one of my school mates told us in the school playground...and, us football mad kids all laughed at him of course. Think his dad had read it in the previous evening's 'late argus extra' or something
