    Thanks for that posting pal, I love watching clips of old games: ).. we had a talented squad and it's a pity we signed Benarbia at 32.(iirc) He was some player for us as was Berkovic. We signed another Algerian Djamel Belmadi around the same and I remember going to a reserve game at Wednesday to watch him. I think he came on as a sub and me and my mate started singing "Belmadi woaahh, Belmadi woaahh". It amused Kevin Keegan and he winked and smiled at us. Belmadi only played a handful of games for us though before moving on.

    He was of a level at the time, a little like kinky. and great during dire times, however, not in the same league as merlin and I think we have a better player in his namesake!

    The Wednesday game was my lad’s first away game. I remember telling him that not all away games are like that!

    I agree, because his work rate was good and he was unselfish.

    I think Eyal was doing just fine at WHU ...until a certain Mr Hartson intervened.
    Got the impression no one would stand up to Mr H and iirc Eyal was never the same player for the Hammers afterwards.
