This person will be much easier to identify, though maybe not as luscious as Ms Macdonald, one-time belle of Steve Lovell

Voted by fans of both Everton and Sunderland as just about the worst player they'd ever signed, though the latter poll may have been taken before Josy Altidore showed up.

BACK OF THE NET...............!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He did net 187 league goals (200 in total) and was involved in three consecutive play-off finals (not making the pitch in two of them) and was just a good lower league striker who's in both Stockport's and Cheltenham's Hall of Fame.
Came across him in a recent quiz search when he popped up as coach of NZ outfit Hawkes Bay United. No doubt teaching them the art of control, pass, move etc............Neville Southall said he had "a touch like a tackle" Crazy

Shot Paul and back to you.

After his spell at the top level he went back to Stockport. I'll never forget the sight of him at Edgeley Park lumbering 50 yards directly towards 1000+ sarcastically-cheering Tranmere fans in the away end in a vain attempt to prevent a loose ball trickling out for a goal kick. We all knew he'd never make it, we were right....and we let him know about it! Totally knackered, he looked up and gave us all a genuine big smile!
