David Platt,pound for pound, was possibly our best ever signing.

Pound for pound?

Dwight Yorke.

Good discussion but finding a kid in T&T while on a tour, getting him for essentially nothing, and that kid turning out to be one of the best top division players for us ever is a hell of a deal. That he also went on to immense success at Man U cements for me his place because it further highlighted how good Dwight was.

Ormondroyd certainly wasn't the worst player I ever saw down the Villa playing for us.  I liked him, a lot of skill for a big man.



Terrific insight into Graham Taylor's management, really enjoyed that. Thanks for posting.

Gareth Barry has to be up there with our best ever signings. Nearly 11 years in the first team then sold for £12m.

Nice interview that, from what seems like a really lovely down to earth bloke, ‘keen as mustard’ 😊

I’ll always remember him being in the 89-90 side that could of, maybe should of won the league, galloping down the left wing, with Tony Daley, flying down the right, happy days those.

Yorke was great but Platt was better.

I’d say Tammy Abraham should be in the conversation as our pound for pound best ever signing. We certainly wouldn’t have gone up that season without him.

I think for value that Alan Wright was a brilliant signing for £1m

Ugo went well for a £40,000 signing.
