I remember John Fielding well..he was fair-haired and not much of him but very skilful.I think he was signed from Southport.Main memory is of him putting a header onto the Ealing Road crossbar in the replay v Burnley in front of a crowd well in excess of 30,000.Score was 0-0 at the time..He was not long at Brentford;perhaps a bit lightweight in a very physical league.

Can You See The Real Me?
Yes, there was no warning. I remember turning up at the game and..no Andy Sinton! After a hundred plus games without so much as an injury. Then word went around he had gone..then word went around he had gone to that lot in White City :no:
The memory maybe playing me up here, but wasn't he sold on the Monday after we lost to the bin dippers in 89?

:scratch:

Whilst Jim McNichol remains the departure that saddened me the most, there are others where the reasons for a player leaving were never clear and didn't make sense. Big Tel has already been mentioned but Roger Stanislaus to Bury always baffled me. I was wearing a BFC t-shirt in a bar in Las Americas not long after when some northern **** spent ages telling me how Stanislaus had left to better himself at a bigger club. Bury? Where are they now?

Dj Campbell... Knew it would hinder a promising campaign.. A lack of an adequate replacement made it worse

Dean Holdsworth and the paltry amount we received for him and the fact that he went to Wimbledon ffs. That wouldn't happen today.

Agreed.
Don't think Wimbledon could afford him, even bearing in mind the fact that Deano's best days are probably behind him......

Cant remember the finer details but many years ago ( 1960s?) we signed a winger called John Fielding. The first time I saw him he was outstanding but as defenders started to kick lumps out of him he finally had to go off injured and I don't remember seeing him again. He impressed me so much at the time it was a big disappointment cos I really rated him. I've checked history books but can find very little about him.

Yes Stanislaus came to my mind too. He was excellent when he was with us. All went awry after that.

You say things as you see them which is a quality that many would admire.
