Think there was a guy called Bolaise or Bolassie who went up North somewhere. And Clyne at Liverpool probably our best ex-player.

Paul Ifill! Brings back memories of pre-season to Cornwall in Warnock days (first time). Slightly pissed, I saw Paul at half-time and asked him when he was coming on. Completely unaware he had played first 45 minutes and just been substituted! I had failed to notice him on the pitch! He took it in good spirit.

Thanks for some updates - Ambrose retiring etc.

Don't think these have been mentioned before:-
Jason Banton - Crawley Town
Craig Beattie - Stirling Albion
Andy Dorman - New England Revolution
Elliott Grandin - Shrewsbury Town
Alex Marrow - AFC Fylde

Have yet to check summer moves.

And Kenny Verhoene is managing at Carl Zeiss Jena, but that would be starting another thread!

Would be an interesting one. Goran Petric was managing Zemun. Not sure if he still is now though.

The slaphead guy, Barrett - is he at Gillingham? Was he only ever a trialist for us though? Played in the friendly v Chelsea back in about 2010.

No we actually signed him. Started a few games in a woeful team run at the beginning of one season, can't remember which, then got dropped and never really featured after that. Come to think of it, it might have been under Burley because I remember him playing with the likes of Counago and Marrow in a late defeat at Boro.

Yeah, Adam Barrett played in that George Burley team. Looks like he's back at Southend at the moment. Was always a lower league player which would have been useful if Burley had kept his job that season.

* Edit - He played in that game v Watford in a fog bound Vicarage Road from which he was never seen again in a Palace shirt there after.

Damn you stole my thunder, I was just going to mention him!!:supergrin:

I remember him playing for the might of Kilmarnock!! Went from there to Oldham...he has carved out a career at the lower level, there are others around the same time who were rated better prospects, who seem to have disappeared out of the game, good luck to him.
