Alan Brown polarised opinions, but on his day, he was exciting to watch - maybe even quicker than Marco?

Thanks for the goals, especially at Wrexham, Man Utd and Leicester, 'Bomber'.

Also for the laugh when the league game at Stoke was called off due to snow with most over half way there. The Safc coach turned around at services near Sheffield and returned home leaving Bomber stranded !

Rumour had it that he beat the coach home to Sunderland as he was that fast !!

All the best Alan.

This was the game at OT where he equalised with 5 mins to go and he went berserk!
Atmosphere that day was brilliant. 50k +, crowd with 5000 from Safc.

I was at Man Utd and Wrexham games, did get caught offside a lot as I remember but v good on his day
Was in Scoreboard with wor Jeff and a couple of mates and remember saying how great it would be to score at OT having been baited by the Man U fuckwits in the adjoining paddock for almost all the 2nd half.
Didn't expect it to be in this game, but when it happened it was fecking orgasmic. Soon shut the paddock boys up. Great days.

Goalkeeper
I always liked him,seemed to have no luck at all.

Did everything right and then would hit the post or the bar,seemed to be every game.

Even on his ' move' to Newcastle when he impressed them on loan he failed the medical.

Very unlucky player.

He had the unbreakable habit of leaning back when taking a shot . There's only one way the barls going then . Upowers .
