Dave Farrell popped into my head which is odd because I don't remember him. I had to Google to see if he existed.

Atkinson era?

It said on wiki he was here between 1992-1995. I remember the name but just can't place him.

A winger wasn’t he? I vaguely recall him starting a match around Christmas time when I was at uni so would’ve been about 94.

I vaguely remember him. According to Wiki he went on to play bass for Linkin Park.

You're thinking of Paul Mortimer.

I've just read a strange quote from Roberto Martinez saying Bjorn Engels isn't '100% fit'.

Wonder if the quote wasn't initially in English and "fit" hasn't really translated properly.

Spoke with one of Bjorn s wife's relatives today .....they are settling well in the Midlands and apparently Bjorn loves it at the villa....he is learning from Tyrone and says they have a great relationship on and off the playing field

Martinez was never the greatest manager of defenders. Not sure why he would just make stuff up as an excuse not to pick someone, though.

Looking really good so far, and shows there's still bargains to be had out there.
