John Fashanu was my shout out loud ‘noooo!’ moment.

Yeah, I remember BFR getting stick about going to the WC with ITV and him saying "I'm going out there to scout some of the best players in the world".

Then came back with Fashanu.

John FashaRnu.

The Fashanu signing just seemed to be so that Big John could be closer to the Central Studios so that he could film Gladiators more easily.

A friend of mine lived on the same road as Fashanu. He said Fash used to go running in bright neon with a headtorch and threatened to report one of his neighbours to the police for having a 'racist' dog.

Steve Stone was a decent player for us, whether played as a wing back, winger or central midfielder. He played regularly for the side that got to the Wembley final in 2000.

Not my idea of a rubbish player.
