Anyone know the last player to leave city who had played at MR?
I remember watching Ned Onuha at a youth semi or final at MR. I think. Or could it have been SWP who’s shirt looked far too big for him when he played at MR?
Open to being proved wrong but was Defoe the last remaining Prem player to have played at Maine Rd.., actually now I’ve got my brain in gear Crouch, Barry and Milner probably also did. Any more ?

Only thing I miss from Maine Road are the pubs around the ground. The ground itself was a dump. A homage to the ego's of Swales and Franny. Try to imagine Pep standing in front of the Main Stand looking at the Gene Kelly while trying to coach the team through a Champions league match. It just doesn't work
If you could pick 4 stands that didn’t match one single bit, youd’ve hit the jackpot with maine road!!
