    Dave Bennett was a good kid, his old fella worked at Heaton Chapel railway station.

    Yes Dave is a great lad. He mentioned to Bondy that he wouldn't reach his peak until he was 24, who took exception to this and didn't give Dave a fair crack of the whip after that.

    Yes, he was crap. Remembered fondly because he inadvertently exposed Roy Keane for what he is.

    Kaka was and it would have been interesting to see what would have happened(or indeed David Villa), but at the end of the day you can only sign players that will come to you and in the case of Kaka we tried pretty damn hard to sign him! Its fair to say most if not all our early signings of this current era tended to be players with question-marks over them Silva was too small for the English game, Yaya was a defensive midfielder that we paid way over the odds for, Aguero would be back in Spain before the season finished and Tevez while a fine player wasn't without a whole ton of baggage, we really did amazingly well, The media want to paint it as we just threw money at everything but we really did great business

    Ederson. He is good goalkeeper, but the thread is about overrated and many here say he is the best goalkeeper on the world and he is nowhere near that.

    I wanted to see David Villa to come here for a few months and be part of the squad when the season stopped playing in America, he still had class
