Will look him up on wiki after posting this...Cheers

Coxy.

You got that wrong.

He wasn't average he was hopeless.

Would make my worst County side ever. :lol:

Yep, checked him out on wiki and perhaps he liked his beer more than his footy.

I enjoyed watching him and he always did a shift. Not the most talented of players but very strong. One of the best 'average' County players I have seen. No idea where he is now.


I loved Minshull, what an absolute unit that guy was.

He went part time so that he could go back to being a Quantity Surveyor. I still keep an eye out for him on twitter

Stuart James - Average footballer but outstanding reporter. Probably one of the best in the business right now. My memory of James the footballer seems to be him running down the wing and forgetting to cross the ball!

When he was at Liverpool they rated him as one of the best youngsters they had ever had ( that was according to an article in the Match Of The Day Annual 1976 that I found in my attic and was reading a few weeks ago )

The scousers said that about Tommy Tynan as well. Unfortunately he just didn’t have the pace to go with it. Their loss, our gain.

Not sure if average or anonymous with this one,anyone remember Lawrence Osbourne,played midfield in final league season.I say played but,I can't remember him touching the ball much,even though he had a decent run in the side.He just seemed to on the pitch and not doing much.

Ray Bishop. Couldn’t stop scoring for Cardiff. Distinctly average (ie. a shadow of the player he was) for us.

We've wound up discussing poor players. IMHO average = someone who is good enough to play regularly without you necessarily noticing his contribution. So of the current squad Bennett, from years ago Gary Thorne.

Ooh, I think that's harsh on Bennett. Of the current crop there's another midfielder who regularly escapes my notice for the first 30 minutes of each game.

I wondered about Neil Bailey. He was the water carrier in a talented midfield and always seemed to be made scapegoat by the crowd on County off-days.

I see it as praise, he often operates under the radar. It's a paradox, but before you can be rated for your averageness, you have to be un-average enough to get picked regularly.

How about Tom Miller?
