2 world wars, 1 world cup Bodin > everybody.

**** me I can’t remember when we had so much choice for LB

Remember when we had to sign some random LB on a free because we had nobody? Anyone remember his name? I think it was the same season we played Kelly at LB.

Unfortunately there’s more than one person you could be referring to but I think you mean Jure Travener?

Marcus Williams and Joe Mills, going back a bit further Dan Harding and Dean Gordon.

Wouldn't necessarily categorise J Mills with Travner, Harding or Williams

Those three were truly shocking footballers. Mills at least showed some sort of promise, some sort of versatility and was slightly unlucky with injuries

Infact if you add up the appearances of Travner, Williams, Harding and Gordon, you only get to 67% of Mills' appearances here

Didn’t realise Mills had made 15 appearances and I did like bits of what we saw of him, but I do think he was very much a “we need a left back, er, um, you’ll do” signing.

Very harsh on Dan Harding btw, he spent most of his career in the Championship and a few years in League One. He was just unlucky that we had a very good left back and only needed some cover. Think it was in Coppell’s final season when Armstrong won POTS?

At least we've stopped signing obvious no hope squad fillers like Travner, Brett and Marcus Williams, and Mendes.

We've unfortunately moved on to past it no hopers like O'Shea, Adam, Yakubu etc, which, if anything, is worse, sadly.

From what I can tell he is one of the highest rated young keepers in the new FM game. The only ones in England I have found to better his potential so far are Dewhurst, Bazunu, Henderson, Muric, Dahlberg, Ramsdale and Woodman. Actually. Thats quite a lot. Never mind.
