Probably the best place for it as it concerns and ex player....

I was watching a number of the highlights of our Premier League games earlier, bloody hell Hammond was a liability, did Digby get injured or something for Hammond to play so many games.....

I think Hoddle just preferred Hammond for some reason.

I will always remember Hammond for that game away ay West Ham. They battered us but got nothing. Barcelona would not have put one past him on that day, he played a blinder.

I believe Digby suffered a dislocated shoulder at Sheffield Wednesday at the hands of that dirty b*stard Watson. They also played on and scored while Diggers was on the deck! I also think the same thug injured Hammond in the return fixture at the County Ground! Hence why we ended up with all sorts of shite keepers for the last few games! I may just have imagined it all though as it was a long time ago!

Ah, of course.

I think I'm still mostly right, though. I'm sure it was Hoddle who preferred Hammond, albeit not in the Premiership. My failing mind might be deceiving me, though.

At the time it was widely assumed that the football authorities still had it in for us after 90.... when you saw things like Diggers lying prone with a serious injury and the ref blithely waving on play until they scored, it did make you wonder.

Still makes me laugh we signed one bloke with a massive mullet on loan from Cambridge, and then signed the goalkeeper from 4th Division Leyton Orient to on loan to be number 1.

Injury was the issue in the Prem season, the season before that, Hammond got a few games.  Digby had some wobbles as a result of the back pass law I think, and Hammond did have a few blinders in quick succession.

That was my 14th birthday, whole ground knew the ref should have stopped play.

Jon Sheffield?  Paul Heald?  (I should google it but that's the names I've dragged from my memory!)

We also signed a fella called Stuart Kerr from Celtic as cover, he never got a game.... Kerr was finished by injury at 26, but has had a successful career as a keeping coach.... currently in North America where he has worked since 2011.

There was another game at the old Den, midweek, about 91/2. I didnít go, but remember it from the highlights video of that season. Hammond made some incredible saves. Sadly it was a Cup game (Zenith game maybe) so the highlights donít appear to be on Swindon-town-F.C. People always unfairly judge keepers on isolated errors, and pretend thatís the norm. Bart Griemink, Jimmy Glass - now they were poor goalkeepers. Hammond was fine.
