I met her on a grassy bank my hands were all a quiver,
I undid her suspender belt and her leg fell in the river.

I always find it more helpful in a thread about previous players to name players not previously mentioned and having the courtesy to at least read others posts and opinions.

Here to help as you can't be bothered to read back.

So the chat about Zeki Fryers got me thinking about the players who could have been great for us if they either weren't made of balsa wood, or we didn't accidentally break them. I'm thinking Dave Bennett, Keith O'Halloran, Barry Corr...

Who would be in your Top "if only" 11 if they'd been able to maintain their fitness while at STFC?

I was at the Jimmy Allan game and the Keith O'Halloren match as well as the Dave Bennett games all horrible injuries.

The game vs Bournemouth where KOH got his leg broken by Wade Elliott was the only time that I can remember that Swindon have played a league game at a non league ground (Dorchester during renovation of Dean Court).

From the late 1960s - Barry Lowes - winger signed from Coventry, injured in his first home game in August and I donít think he played again for us.
1970s Terry Hubbard - came up through the youth team, Welsh under 23 international (in those days it was U23 not U21) but had a lot of injuries. Eventually left and played in South Africa.

I know Jimmyís career was ended  early, but he played a lot of games and I donít remember him missing many from injury until that incident v Rochdale - so I was a bit surprised about his inclusion in a greatest crocks list. I think of that as meaning a player who was unavailable because of injury more often than he was available (like Lyden of the current squad).

I keep reading this at Greatest Crooks 11. Maybe we could do an 11 that clearly stole a wage off Towns books.
