Villa players you actually forgot played for us.
« on: June 05, 2014, 10:43:38 PM »
Watched some highlights of our 3-0 win over Sheffield United just now, memorable day. Patrick Berger scored a nice goal which actually reminded me he played for us for apparently 3 seasons.

I think he had a good run of form round that point as apparently he still was in our squad for 2007/08 even though I can't recall him being involved in any games that year? Same for 2005/06!

Which is the one for you that apparently played for us but you can't remember them.

Well this is hard to answer as if I can't remember them I've  got nothing to post. ;)

You'll be doing very well to get a picture of Alan McLoughlin in a Villa kit.

Ireland legend, for the goal he scored against the North that secured World Cup qualification in 1993.

Came on as a sub for us v Luton in 1991 at home, during a nondescript loanspell, IIRC.

Brian McClair, Frank McAvennie, Hans Gilhous and  Henrik Larson (the Dane, rather than the Swede) were also on our books after more prominent spells elsewhere.

A few players who would probably stump me in those Missing Men things, Agathe, Kinsella, fashanu, Sutton, Heath, Tiler, Calderwood to name a few. The likes of Dawkins and Jenas will join them in a few years.

I always remember Sutton for the deft header he scored v Everton but yeah we got him just before he was about to retire so suppose you can forget he played here.

I was mostly out of the country (is my excuse), but Steve Foster and Paul Elliott.

On the worst Villa 11 thread, I'd forgotten Dawkins already.

Does it count if they didn't play for us, like Drobny (now deceased), that Italian bloke (Ferrari?) and Unsworth?

I know Adrian Heath played for us, but can't remember anything about his Villa career.

Other obscure Villa careers:

David Hunt
Carl Tiler
Jonathan Bewers
Darryl Duffy
Paul Browne
Eirik Bakke
Stephen Cooke
Neil Cutler
Gilles De Bilde
Keith Fahey
Najwan Ghrayib
Tommy Jaszczun
John McGrath
Richard Walker

To be fair many of them were Villa graduates that were given a run out, but didn't make it with us.

Neil Cutler

I went to school with Neil before he went to Lilleshall. He was a really good lad.
