Think he's a bit over the hill now.No 1. Andy Sinton, why not wait til end of the season?
No 2. DJ Campbell, Same Story.
No 3. Holdsworth. Although there was an inevitability about this one, and of course replaced by feckin’ Lurch
Footnote - why is Andy Sinton not treated as a God on here or by Bees fans in general?
He went on to play for England multiple times, graced the top division for years.
Despite how good we have now become, can you imagine a better replacement for Benrahma??
Remember that game so well. I was standing in the Paddock. Nearly 15000 there and on TV. Brian Moore - 'two in a minute!'.John O'Mara going to Blackburn was a knife in my heart. I will always remember the two goals in two minutes against grimsby. I was still celebrating the first goal when the second one went in and had to wait till the Big Match the following day to see it. Was also given a clip around the ear as I was caught on camera smoking by my dad who was watching on the Sunday afternoon with me.
Good shout - he had just found his feet in league football and started scoring for fun. What we didn't know was that we had to sell to avoid administration.Definitely DJ for me. I was at GP the night he was sold when the youth team were playing Newcastle. Horrible as the news spread through Braemar Road
Completely, Southampton were in for him and what I know told Brentford to hold onto him as they were negotiating the sale of Shearer to Blackburn. We would have got more for Deano if we sold him to Southampton.Holdsworth as he went so cheaply in my opinion and just seeing him score all those goals in that magical season .....then when Forster left brilliant striker but chose brum ...hated that club as they stayed up with an offside goal and we went down in 92/93 ....alright we were dreadful at Bristol city.....but I still hated the fact he went there and I still despise them to this day
Eh?!Gutted when Len Bond left, then paying £25,000 for McKellar who soon fell out with Callaghan, IMO was a absolute waste of money.
Also agree I was sorry to see O'Mara and McCulloch go
Our whole season fell apart in that week.Andy Sinton - and especially to Rangers and especially a few days after the FA Cup game against Liverpool - thereafter we played Fulham I believe on a Sunday and we lost.
