    Unfortunately for us, we had an over-influential, egotistical committee chairman, Tony Wood, who wanted to be associated with signing a footballer for six-figures, irrespective of the views of the then-manager, Johnny Carey. Inevitably, it all ended in tears.

    How much did we pay for Chris Allen? He was woeful.
    Kingsley's main problem was a directional one. He spent more time running towards Stuart Pearce than he did the opposition, s defence.

    Chris Allen and Kevin James on the wings.

    Bernard Allou played at PSG with Rai, Djorkaeff, Ginola, Weah. I don't remember him being ace, but he had to have been.

    He played 41 times, according to Wiki, between 94-98.

    I lived in Paris during part of that time and used to take in a few games. Weah was awesome, Rai was a magician.

    Although the central midfield combination of Daniel Bravo (creative playmaker) and Laurent Fournier (psychotic hatchet-man) remains a personal favourite, as does legendary goalkeeper Bernard “The Cat” Lama.

    „The revolution will inevitably awaken in the British working class the deepest passions which have been diverted along artificial channels with the aid of football.“

    From memory, we signed him on loan, he got injured and we sent him back before he even played a game.
    Did the same happen with Federici last season or didn't he get as far as signing?

    He's number 2 at Stoke now behind Butland? Must have recovered sufficiently.

    IIRC the deal had been done, but he injured his knee in his last training session with AFCB.
    AFC Bournemouth did the only decent thing and tore up the agreement.
    I wouldn't be surprised if the pre-season friendly was arranged on the back of that.

    What about a waste of money XI where the money was wasted by others on our players. Man Utd in the 80’s stands out. Whilst we lost pretty good players for us at the time they got nowt out of em. Ha ha, those were the days!

    £1.25m Birtles 1982 11 goals / 58 games
    £750k Davenport 1986 22/92
    £1.5m Webb 1989 8/75

    Sampdoria spend £1.5m on one of the worlds best centre halves and play him at left back. Scandalous waste.
