Somebody mentioned Michael Bradley earlier.  Forgot all about him.

Well, i've read all 20 pages - and no-one has mentioned the lad who played up front alongside Sir Brian in that amazing Youth Team in 1972  - so i assume he qualifies as 'forgotten' ?

And as added bonus, TB scoring a  "golden  goal" in a NASL playoff for Portland Timbers - from a  cross from a Villa Legend

I guessed wrong. When Portland Timbers and a Villa legend were mentioned I thought of Peter Withe.

I think I have forgotten quite of few of the players from around that time, especially the Lambert era. Bradley was brought in by McLeish though I think.

Bradley was brought in by Houllier... he was part of his Surrender Team at Man City in the Cup.

I thought the two on the right were John Major and Jeff Lynne.
