BANTER ERA NOV 2007 - DATE 09:55 - Feb 13 with 47432 viewschicoazul

What's your personal highlight of the Banter Era?
For me, the way Delaney told Jewell he was off to live in New York and needed to be let go, and then turned up at Palace a month or so later and enjoyed a promotion and a long career in the top flight.
I also like very much the fact Jewell signed Ingimarsson (sp) simply because they were at the same resort on holiday at the same time and Ingi did of course turn out to be an absolute knacker of a player.
Also the gangsters arriving at Playford Rd looking for Chopra.
What are yours?

Almost as bad as saying “mind the gap” last season when we finished a couple of points ahead. Less than a year later they are top and we are bottom

- One of the richest men in the country employing chief execs to run the club for 10 years who have with no football experience. Must have used the same 'brains trust' of advisors to suggest them as those who suggested our managers over the same period.

- Oh, and one of the richest men in the country carrying out such a cost cutting exercise at the club that washing machines at the training ground were nt fixed that somehow ended up ruining some of the practise pitches.

- Bushes / a tree growing out of the top of the stand.

- 'be careful what you wish for'

- Ability to get the important transfer decisions wrong - selling Murphy and not replacing him properly ever since, and keeping Mcgoldrick on a big contract who hardly ever played much/well for us seasons after (same for Bart?)

_ having more than 5 loanees, when you can only play a max of 5.

That good old red tape. See also Dylan Connolly & Adam McDonnell (IIRC).


That was another classic. MM moaning about 'red tape' that he couldn't play Adam McDonnell until he turned 18, then to not play him from ages 18-20.

I've really enjoyed this thread.

The club withdrawing the £10 ST for kids because they were concerned people were buying an extra seat either side of them to give them more space.

Can't be arsed to read all 7 pages, has anyone mentioned Grant Ward?

Potentially useful winger signed, looks technically good, scores a hattrick on his debut. Subsequently has all ability coached out of him by Mick "a point'll do fer me" McCarthy. Continues to be the most overrated player in our squad and utterly bereft of confidence for the next 2.5 years (and counting).

Yes. Keith Andrews saved Jewell’s job that night.
