      I always hype up the fact that I called Robbos greatness before we signed up. I tend to leave out I said I wanted Michael Keane over VVD.  :f_whistle:

      Todd Cantwell was another I was WAAYYY off on



      Ha :D Cantwell was one of mine as well.

      I remember when he left MK Don's for Spurs and we were after him as well. Was being talked up like Bellingham is now..

      Cant remembered the whole name of that Blackburn striker, costa or something.

      Don't know if it's any of these but at one point or another, I'd have happily taken these 3 ex-Blackburn forwards.

      Roque Santa Cruz, Yakubu (but when he was at Pompey) and Benni McCarthy.

      Weird signings we didn't want - no shortage of them that's for sure.

      On the other foot. Ollie Watkins as back up but he went to Villa. Milner when Leeds were having a fire sale...got him in the end. But the net is so wide these days and unless we follow all the other leagues throughout Europe we can only guess at who we might sign.

      Simao.

      Not sure if he ever went on to be anything special after he was linked with us.

      Figueroa or whatever his name was the Wigan left back who scored from the half way line. I bought into the hype.

      Incidentally, also from Wigan (not one I rated), but anyone remember Amr Zaki the big Egyptian striker? He was linked for a bit then disappeared off the face of the earth.

      Steed Malbranque of Fulham. Hangaland their CB. Sully Muntari of Portsmouth. Asmir Begovic. Obafemi Martins before his real date of birth was revealed.

      Re-signing Michael Owen in 2005 was a must in my eyes. Was gutted when Newcastle got him in the end. At that point he absolutely was still a top striker but it wasn't too long after he popped his knee ligament in the World Cup and that was kind of it for him.

      And Rafa was justified in his signings / non signings that summer.  Crouchy and Reina were fantastic and the likes of Zenden, Sissoko and Kromkamp (joking) added quality and depth to us. Terrific FA Cup victory and a strong season in the league culminating in hitting the 80 point mark too. I don't think we ever hit the solid consistency under Rafa as we did that season. Not a great squad but professional and solid throughout.

      Lucas Neill in summer 2007. Would have been fine but in hindsight wouldn't have offered too much beyond what we had. That said we went and signed Skrtel in January 2008 which was regrettable so maybe not. An atrociously overrated player and remarkable he stayed as long as he did.

      Problem was he cared more about that England place proving what a little snake he was. Rafa would of got the deal done, he just wasn't prepared to be ripped off for £16 million, especially as we got screwed when originally selling him.

      Was done with Owen after August 2004 and I've not changed my mind since.
