    Might as well have a go at the 16 then:

    Toddy Orlygsson (Iceland)
    Bryan Roy (Holland)
    Alf-Inge Haaland (Norway)
    Lars Bohinen (Norway)
    Andrea Silenzi (Italy)
    Pierre van Twatdonk (Holland)
    Stale Stensaas (Norway?)
    Jesper Mattsson (Sweden?)
    Matthieu Louis-Jean (France)
    Thierry Bonalair (France)
    John Harkes (USA)
    Hugo Porfirio (Portugal)
    Jean-Claude Darcheville (France)
    Nikola Jerkan (Croatia)

    That's 14, can't think of the other 2, I'm 99% certain Marco Pascalo didn't play for us in the Premier League, and you can't surely include Chris Bart-Williams (Sierra Leone) in the 16 can you?

    Is that Stale wotsisface the same Stale that's taken over at Wolves?

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    I've always been quite proud that we've mainly had players from the British isles. There's nothing wrong with the odd foreigner or 3 in the side, but I don't like teams with not 1 single Brit in there.

    Einer Aas (Norway)
