Yes, under Coppell around 92/93. Eddie McGoldrick played there.

Eddie was brilliant as a sweeper. Didn't play many games there from memory but he was a class act.

Eddie McGoldrick in one or two matches I seem to remember which was a bit of a surprise at the time.

(edit - sorry - I had the page open so long that I hadn't see the other posts - honest

Was Shaw used as a sweeper( I thought he was) or DM? Brilliant in whatever position It was , that said my memory is not the same so he probably was deployed purely for man marking.

He was often given the man marking job from what I remember. Whether that was in defence on a forward or in midfield. He was really good at just nullifying their star player.

Re some of the other posts, I think some must be using the term sweeper differently to how I would. Not saying it's wrong, buts it's just different to how I would see it. I.e. Bobby Moore wasn't a true sweeper to me. He was often labelled as a sweeper though in the press. When he was playing teams typically had a big CH who tended to be clumsy but great in the air and then a shorter, more nimble player alongside them. Bobby was the best of these in his day and truly World Class due to his composure and reading of the game. No pace, not great in the air but you never noticed somehow. It's true that the little guy of the partnership would be expected to 'sweep up' alongside and around the CH but not in the sense that a Sweeper would in say Italy where they would sit slightly deeper behind defenders. Beckenbauer played DM, the second central defender role or as a genuine sweeper at different times in his career. The most famous was an Italian dude and I can't remember his flaming name but he, like Beckenbauer could control the game from there.

Aha - remembered - Baresi? Or something like that.

Eddie was great as a sweeper as much as he was a loss on the wing... when a goal bonus was in play

Hayden Mullins and Andy Roberts played the odd game as sweeper, both very classy and made it look like they had all the time in the world on the ball

That's jogged my memory. Don't think Shaw was ever used as a sweeper but I'm almost certain Coppell had Thorn as a sort of sweeper in THAT 1990 semi against a Liverpool.

We had 5 across the back with Thorn dropping deep.

Weird fact: Andy Roberts is younger than Kevin Philips. Yet it seems that they played in different eras.
