It was about the penalty spot and he was straight out and caught it. Immediately fills the defence with confidence. I also remember him in one game going ballisti...

If the club can’t find a pen I’ll drive over and drop one off
A few years ago the club would use a brand new pen for a player to sign the forms with. They were special pens which were then presented to the player.

It was stopped as a cost cutting exercise.

Whilst we are taking about goalkeepers in the 90’s - why was there such a glut of loan signings in the championship season when David Williams put in a wonderful performance against us for Rochdale. Could we not just have recalled him and put him in instead of Pearce? How many did we use that year?...
