    Who is the greatest player we came close to signing?

    There must be a few who we just missed out on?

    Vardy?

    Not quite as gutting as Sheffield United declining to sign a young Diego Maradona though…and getting Alex Sabella instead

    I’m told Kieffer Moore was nearly a permanent miller

    You was told wrong. No chance.

    I remember back in the 70s reading a biography of Tommy Lawton. Early in his career he had trials with Rotherham United and was rejected!
    A bit before my time and largely forgotten these days but he scored 22 goals in 23 appearances for England and became a 'legend' as one of the English greats of his generation.

    Ofoe was on loan here just before Evans/Raynor parted company with us back then. By out standards was a great player think our management team then would have liked to have kept him. Could have had something to do in a roundabout way with them leaving.

    Tom Bradshaw would have been a good fit for us,
    if we'd have paid an extra £50 for him off Walsall.

    He's still decent in the Championship.

    We were very close to signing Stevie May.
    What might have been??
    Evans said he would have gotten the best out of him.

    He ended up choosing the Pigs.
