Imaginations are a funny thing when we get to our senior years, but I thought I heard mention of Demetriou as an emergency keeper?
Reports of him training there when we had the same situation when Townsend was injured last season

The trouble with an outfielder going in goals,Demetriou did that for Shrewsbury and he did his knee diving for the ball.It almost finished his career,Shrewsbury payed him off his last year of his contract then,fortunately for him and us,Westley took him on in the January.It's all well and good volunteering but,there's more to it than it looks.

Strange as it may seem Fourthousand,this is a mb where anyone is allowed to debate anything involving the club.As far as I am aware,we don't need to have qualifications in a particular subject to have an opinion on it.If Harps or anyone has a different view to you then that's what makes this forum work,if we all agreed then there would be no point in this existing.

That’s a decent point , I’ve always had a soft spot for Everton and remember watching a 16 year old Rooney and thinking he was built like a man, contrast that with Michael Branch who was over used as a teenager in the mid 90s. His career dwindled into obscurity before being jailed for drug offences


Rooney was an exception. An Everton season ticket holding mate of mine heard so much about him as a kid that he went to watch Wednesday youth v Everton youth just to see what all the fuss was about. Rumour at the time was that he was playing senior Sunday league football while still at junior school.

Well said Percy.

Another exception was Peter Osgood.
I had the privilege of seeing him in the Combination against Cardiff when just 17.
Scored 30 goals in 20 games for Chelsea reserves before getting into the first team at 17.
legend.
How he only played 4 times for England still a mystery to me.

I was in Chelsea College at that time and used to watch from “ the shed “ ( a bit lawless there at times :grin: ) , that was a fair team , it was good to watch at times and watching Peter Bonetti in action wasn’t too shabby either.
