Squads weren't as big back then, had to make up the numbers.
I dont think we used more than 20 players in total for several season back in the 70s and early 80s. I remember it well.

usually Dave wasn't his name?

Well if Dave wasn't his name what was it?  Wink Cheesy

Actually be fair, this one from the Wellens season is a pretty lively affair.

Danny Murphy; not the spud headed Ex Liverpool and Spurs midfielder and MOTD pundit but some Irishish left back we signed from QPR but who we never played even when Andy Nicolas was out. For some reason Kingy preferred to play David Duke a midfielder who could barely kick a ball with his left foot in that position than Murphy.I

What that says about the quality of the two players I don't know as Andy King seemed to be the only manager on earth that thought Duke had the making of a pro footballer let alone a left back.

What about Taylor Curran? I mean, he got on the pitch but he never actually played.

More seriously, does Archie Matthews count as first team?

David Duke had a decent cross on him with his preferred right foot and a fair good one on his weaker foot.

He was absolutely in no way shape or form a left full back. He couldnít defend to save his life.
As a winger he was ok.

I remember this Murphy fella being mentioned but donít think we ever signed him did we? Though he was just on trial

What about Yinka Casal...maybe he started about once?! Was definitely an elusive king on the pitch but seem to remember he was very visible off it with his massive entourage!

Edit: Looking at Wiki seems like one of those players who made a career out of impressing enough to get a contract but then got an "injury" early into a season or preseason. Oh and apparently he played 5 (FIVE) times for Town!

Edit(II): Should've been a runner. I reckon he was probs too lazy to realise his talent or no mentor to show him such.

Yinka Casal was one of the very first Ďhighlightsí players.

Someone has filmed him for hours (most likely) and edited all the crap out to leave him with about 30 seconds of looking good. Uploaded it to YouTube and he looked a prospect.

Like if someone had been filming me play football for the last 30 years Iím sure there would be just about enough good stuff in there to make an adequate 30 video where I look like a prospect worth taking a punt on for a L1 / L2 side

Oh yeah, I mean that's pretty close for some approaches to Film School 101....get as much content, then dismiss the shit...you'll have something "good". It's going to work for sports players too.
