Re: ARTICLE: Defour was happiest at Burnley

I don’t remember which game it was exactly, but it was early in his career with us, and one particular game he and Hendrick hit it off and the tippy tappy football was brilliant to watch. It was so unlike us at the time so it stood out. Defour and Brady were brilliant for the first few months of th...

What ever happened to this lad. He used to get pelters from memory while he was with us. Did he end up having a career??
Pelters? - He started one game for us and that was the final league game of the 1990/91 season when he came in for the suspended Ron Futcher. We won 2-0.

Shane Duffy sent back to Brighton from Celtic costing them 3m in a loan fee.

William move to Arsenal hasn't gone well. Free transfer but huge wages.

I didn’t realise just how bad Duffy had been for Celtic until I read the press this week after his return to Brighton

Re: ARTICLE: Under-23s at Leeds for final league game

The problem here is that if Sunderland pick up just one point from their last two games it will be down to goal difference and they were just one better than us before kick off.
