I'm kind of staggered that we've got to Page 2 of this thread and nobody has mentioned Carl Cort.

Wasn't he the name that started the whole 'Spotted in Asda/Morrison's' meme on this board?

Is that because most houses round here don't have gated fronts 🤔

I cant help thinking that this 👆would have helped avoid this 👇 alleged situation!

Dare I mention a certain ex-Spurs, ex-Swansea and apparently currently suspended from Everton midfielder. Pretty glad we missed that one…

That's because... he actually DID sign for us in 2008 scoring a mighty one goal in 12 games to starve off relegation for us.

 

Oh wait, that's not quite how it went... we got relegated and released him from his contract when we dropped to league one

Now..... this has me searching my memories... I seem to remember about 15 years ago, a poster (i cant remember who) being obsessed with us signing someone who was either a striker or centreback and then playing them as a box-to-box midfielder...

can anyone else remember this??

Oh good grief I'd completely forgotten that he actually DID play for us.

Weren't we supposed to be interested in Alan Biley once upon a time? Or was it Steve Spriggs? Someone from Cambridge anyhow.

Derek Riordan.

Every window for about five years it feels looking back at it.

Next thing you'll be trying to convince me that we once lost the first home game of the season in Division One to Colchester by a score of 7-1.

i don't remember us being in for him.. 

I do remember rumours around players who weren't regularly playing being "linked" to us.. Yorke (when he couldn't get into the AV team as a winger), Danny Murphy, Lee Clark, Kevin Davies

Benik A̶d̶o̶b̶e̶ Afobe* comes to mind as a recent one. I remember we spent almost an entire summer lodging bids well below the asking price.
