Could never understand why Newcastle fans held Bernard in such high regard -- he looked a very dodgy defender whenever I saw him play. Any half-decent winger would have fancied his chances against him.
Bernard was brilliant. You have to remember that he was defending for two as he had that lazy bugger Robert in front of him. He was also good going forward, a delightful finish on the end of a flowing move to score the winner against Chelsea is particularly fondly remembered.

He also had a tendency to get on the receiving end of some pretty horrendous challenges. How is it that some players always seem to - through no fault of their own - invite those?

And he's also fondly remembered for this.

John Gregory broke Sasa Curcic, just like he broke Alan Thompson. He was a massive player in the 1995 Bolton side, then went to Villa for £4 million and was underused.

I remember seeing him destroy Chelsea that even Gullitt called him an execptional talent.

Curcic was also remembered by Bolton fans because of his yellow Saab, which he used to drive around, playing Wham! on his stereo criminally loudly.

Whatever happened to that young lad who was in the Ajax academy in the late 80s, that was always on telly over here? Sonny Somethingorother? Originally though it was Sonny Mann, but that's an actor. If it's Sonny Ball, he managed to go from Ajax to Wycombe quite quickly if so, but can't see any information about Ajax on that lad's profile.

Sonny Pike, lost his mind and jacked the whole thing in.

Did Ronnie O'Brien ever show potential, or was the whole thing a wind-up?

Sonny Pike?

Last I heard of Sasa Curcic, he was quitting the game to concentrate on satisfying women or something crazy like that.

The Sonny Pike story.

O'Brien has done quite well in MLS when he hasn't been injured (though Gramsci and the Toronto FC crowd may differ), but seems never to have recovered from the entire Juventus hype and his subsequent role as the favourite son of Irish people who delight in fixing internet polls (O'Brien "won" both Time's "Person of the Century" and Juve's "Player of the Century").

We have had a few at Cardiff. Jason Fowler springs to mind but the one that really sticks out for me is Lee Jarman.

He was massively hyped amongst Cardiff fans for, as far as I could see, one great pass out of defence once (The 1927 club lot will correct me on this assumption, I am sure)

In saying that, he was definitely a good player, played for the Under 21s and could have been nurtured into a reasonably regular Welsh squad player at least.

I can't remember whether he was particularly struck by injury but he went onto Exeter and then Oxford and is now at Newport at 30.

The reason that he sticks out for me is that he was named in a Welsh semi-pro team, which I wouldn't mind, but must be a bit galling for a player that could have played for Wales. He was in the same team as an emerging Paul Parry which is interesting

Marcus Stewart left Ipswich for Sunderland but his time at top flight football was already behind him. His speed/mobility was non-existent following a bad injury. Initially we thought we'd been mugged.
Following relegation with from the prem with Reid/ Wilkinson/ McCarthy He helped McCarthys team go out in the playoffs to a dodgy goal V Palace and lose to Millwall in the FA Cup final. He had his heart set on a move to boyhood favourites Bristol City. This was delayed by a season in which he was top scorer in a Sunderland team that won the CCC title. He then requested NOT to be forced to play in the Prem as he knew it was beyond him. Bristol City seemed beyond him as well as he was sent on loan to a few clubs during the following season.
The suspicion at Sunderland was that Reids number one target was Tore Andre Flo and Stewart only approached in case that deal fell through. Unfortunately the Flo deal was clinched on the final day of the transfer window and due to a communications breakdown the Stewart deal was done as well.
Still the boy done good for us eventually.
