I always felt he was a better player at Wolves than he was given credit for.

The "wrestling players in the box is going to cost us penalties" criticism was always thrown at him, yet did he ever give a penalty away for this?
He was alright, just turned like a skip and was rubbish on the ball. In terms of basic defending he was fine and didn't let us down very often in the PL.

If Saunders hadn't frozen him out like the prick he is we might well have stayed up in 2012/13, he was our best defender (a low bar).

The last player Albion signed directly from us. I can't blame them for not returning to the scene of the crime.

Paskin was the last one we had off them and he was worse, somehow.
On the plus side Edwards could double up as a small table with his flat top. Must have come in handy

Did Blades never score for us?
Remember seeing him score at Stoke in a 1-1 draw, was at the old Victoria ground.
Hard to believe but was a decent goal, coming in from right back played a 1-2 on the edge of the area and a tidy finish.

Absolutely love this, he was my first favourite player, some great goals there! Look at the pitch against Port Vale! That goal against Stoke which probably wouldn't have gone in if the goals were at the right height, and of course the goals against Man City and Everton are just world class.


Oh and the piss taking against Albion is sensational!

I thought the one with the dodgy pitch was away at Mansfield in the Cup. Great compilation though!

Just loved Robbie. From my favourite era where Dennison, Bully, Mutch, Veno, Streete, Ally Rob, Downing, Thommo, Stowell, Cook were all not much more than journeymen players [apologies to some] but absolutely got the best out of themselves and gave it to us as a club over hundreds of appearances.

Mick's first couple of years and Nuno's initial three seasons were the only other time I've felt so connected to the club. The late 70's/early 80's era [FA cup semis and LC win] was good on paper but I never felt the same affinity. And while I started going before that, my love was for the night games, floodlights, noise, atmosphere and being with my Dad more than the players themselves.
