Told you he was shit...
Everyone hates Rangers
Bien fait Lyon
Darcheville is a cunt.
And a thug.
What a wank.
Rangers getting beat is funny. Mon the tic.
That'll teach you for not following the one true path
back in the day too. As were many.
Bryan Roy anyone? Paul McGregor?
thinking of Ivano Bonetti
I watched the half arsed, don't want to be here Dutch international who signed for Forest by accident.
Yeah Silenzi, unbelievably the first Italian in the Prem- missed him out as he was so obvious!
Steve Chettle? Ian Woan? Frank Clark knew how to build a side.
because I saw the one that linked up with Stan Collymore in that first season back in the Premier and contributed massively towards us finishing 3rd and qualifying for Europe.
The fact that Collymore was sold straight after and Roy spent the next 18 months playing alongside incompetent partners doesn't take anything away from that first season for me.
And how do you work out he signed for Forest by accident!?! We'd long had a history of signing extablished Dutch internationals well before Roy (Hans Van Breukelen, Frans Thijssen, Johnny Metgod to name 3) joined the club!
Or maybe you were 8 in 1994 so it's all a distant blur...
If he had a quarter of the ability that he gave for effort he'd have been one hell of a player.
on this, I will concede that he was actually good in his first season. I wasn't eight, I was 11 but I am still a bit hazy. I can't even remember him partnering Stanley Victor in the Shipstones kit so that says it all. I was probably crying into my hot chocolate about how bad Philemon Masinga was and not paying attention.
I've annoyed myself, early to mid 90s football is usually a strong suit of mine.
Now if you'd said Toddi Orlygsson or Gary Bannister or John Harkes or Mikkel Beck or Neil Shipperley then I'd have shouted TURDS for you!
The reason Jean-Claude Darcheville struggled at Forest might have had something to do with the fact his girlfriend and baby child were killed in a car accident back in France literally months before he signed for the club.
I'd also forgotten this totally. Oops.
that Benzema though, eh? Not bad...
