Hatton & Walsh were tremendous, backed up by Finnigan & Spence around that time.All had different qualities. Ellis was a natural finisher in the box, but was bit less prolific than the other two. Bamber looked awkward at times but scored the most goals. Brett never stopped running and often made something out of nothing. It is Brett for me, firstly because he played and scored in every division for us, including the PL and secondly, because his striking partnership with John Murphy was the best I had seen since Hatton and Walsh
There was only one King. He played for us for 10 years in the top two divisions.That was the question a mate (Man United) asked me earlier today.
I know, what kind of question is that? It'd be easier choosing my favourite child.
This is what I replied...
Bamber - Looked ancient and ungainly but it felt like he scored almost every chance he ever got. Loved him.
Ellis - The King. Oozed class. And never did interviews which made him seem other worldly. Loved him.
Brett - Scruffy on and off the pitch. Worked his bollocks off. Willing to get hurt in the process. Goal machine for a couple of seasons. Loved him.
If I had to choose a favourite it would be Brett. On the basis of him scoring in every division for us.
But if I could choose to play like one of those players? The King!
Who was your favourite?
