I'm having flashbacks now - Terry Fleming, Jason Peake, Scott Paterson, Stuart Elliott, Steve Guinan, Sasha Opinel... oh dear oh dear oh dear.

Mind you, that was followed by some of the most fun we've ever had - think Wotton and Coughlan's ongoing contest to see who could boot the most balls out of the most grounds in the bottom division, or singing 'McCarthy's a*se is bigger than this' to the tune of 'My Garden Shed...'

Was football slightly less reprehensible ten years ago, or was I merely younger and less cynical?

I thought McCarthy did a decent job to be honest, every team at that level needs a battering ram.

For me, Hargreaves, Heathcote, O'Sullivan, McGregor (on a good day), Stonebridge were the better ones.
Belgrave had pace but not much a footballing brain.

Thankfully the dross was gradually sifted out once Sturrock arrived.

Even the early Sturrock period had its share of lemons or risky punts that didn't come off - Opinel, Stuart Elliott, Sean Evers, Michael Meaker, Stuart Malcolm, Eugene Kangalungu etc etc... and a couple of journeymen like Heaney and Banger that came in and did a job.

I wonder who we'll end up with, next season. These days there seems to be a lot more emphasis on picking up cast-offs from academies of bigger clubs rather than signing experienced pros like Graham Coughlan or Mick Heathcote to be the bedrock of the side.

Agree Drew, personally I thought Stuart Elliott was one of, if not the worst player to ever put on a green shirt. Rather sensibly Luggy tended to get players in he wasn't sure about on short term contracts. Dropped a bollock with the 3 year deal for Evers though.
Assembled a Championship winning team in a matter of months, he had to make sure he had a real good look at the player before making a committment.
Remember being a bit gutted he didn't take Nicky Banger on a long-term deal especially after his equaliser at Oxford.. but ended up getting an even better player in in Marino Keith.

I'll see your Stuart Elliott .. and raise you a Mark Quamina or a Morrys Scott...

Kemps era was the worst by far.
