My Grandad hated Steve Thomson who I also thought was not that bad. Plus that goal at Leicester.

In fairness, Borrowdale was utterly useless. I found he got loads of slack because he was from the Academy, which is a good thing.

I thought Matt Lawrence was never actually as bad as people made out.

He was fairly dreadful with the ball at his feet, but he could defend.

Funny really that people talk about hatred of players these days when they get a bit of criticism but back then it was a lot worse.

Pardew always stuck out in my mind as he was just such a poor player I used to give him abuse. Then one particularly poor game some fans in the Arthur started singing the Super Al song for a laugh and everyone joined in, then something odd happened, he started playing a lot better and getting stuck in. I think there's definitely a life lesson in there about being positive and supportive, but ****ed if I know what it is.

I think Sewell also got it because he was old school and non trendy in those heady late '60's days. In the same way that the late Peter Houseman got it at Chelsea.
Agree re Nicky Chatterton. Lovely balanced player.

Regarding a couple of players mentioned;

Paul Mortimer was indeed a 'nothingy' player - slow, no flair etc. I do remember however him playing a blinding game away to QPR I think in the cup. I believe he played on the different wing to usual and it was the only game I remember him ever being any good.

As for Pardew, he was pretty bad at first, but to be fair to him, he was plucked from non league Yeovil and it must have been a steep learning curve for him. As someone mentioned earlier in the thread with Barber, he was also surrounded by some far superior players which made him look worse. I think if players are making a big step up or big change from their previous club, they can sometimes need maybe a year or more before you start to see the best from them - look at someone even as good as Thierry Henry who took a long time to settle at Arsenal. Jedi and Murray are a couple of recent examples where some fans were perhaps passing judgement a little early.

Of course, when Pardew went to Charlton he showed he was a much better player than he ever looked with us. I think our 'rambunctious' style sometimes stifled some players' ability to express themselves too well.

I remember Scott getting a chant of" Scott's a twott" which ammused me and when I repeated it at home my mother replyed "thats as may be dear but its not a very nice thing to shout out loud" Needless to say I didn't join in the chant at the next home game.

Didn't Doris also score a blinding free kick home to Sheffield Wednesday in the early 80s, bending the ball round the wall?

Or have I made that up?

My first encounter with Doris was when walking up to the Old Stand in about 77 for the league cup game with Pompeii. At 2.45 he was outside the ground selling his comp tickets to me and my dad. At 3 he ran out onto the pitch and played.
