Transfer rumours over the years you wished had come true
In the early to mid 90s we were linked with Jean Piers Palin who I think was at AC Milan at the time. Think it was on clubcall.

Also in 2002/2003 I read we were trying to sign Batistuta.

Always amused me that he signed for derby instead

Their best player at the time - 40yo Peter shilton.

Remember rumours that we were going to sign Stefan Kuntz and Uwe Fuchs. If only for the humour element having Dicks, Fuchs, Kuntz and Fanni would have been priceless!

Gudjohnsen

I did hear a few years after it (allegedly) happened

Roeder was close to getting a (then relatively unknown) Didier Drogba for the following season but.....we got relegated and it put paid to all that!!

I recall us being link with Van Nistelrooy before he left Utd for Madrid (or was it the other way round?).

That rumour that we actually owned Tevez and Mascherano.

Burns

I don't think so, Leroy signed the year before, I could be wrong though

Thomas Skuhravy.

We were linked with him just before the 1990 World Cup. Unfortunately he scored a few during the tournament and went to Genoa instead.

Re: Transfer rumours over the years you wished had come true
Can anyone remember if we were ever linked to Emilio Butragueno in the 90's towards the end of his Real Madrid career, or am I making that up?

Wasn't it Leroy we signed after missing out on Hartford and Dixon?

Neymar & Klose.

Otherwise i wish Kia Joorabchian had bought the club.
Or red bull.

Re: Transfer rumours over the years you wished had come true
Hagi and guardiola were two others

Dixon was in the great striker hunt of 88/89

We also went for

Fashanu, bright and Wright among others before finally resigning frankie

Re: Transfer rumours over the years you wished had come true
Based solely on the Sun headline “Harry wants a Ham Jarni”, I wanted us to sign Croatian Robert JARNI.

Also wanted Giuseppe SIGNORI when he was linked as well.

Re: Transfer rumours over the years you wished had come true
Most embarrassing was Mick Harford turning us down and sneering about a 40yo Billy Bonds playing for us.
Probably for the best he didnt join as Bonzo would have wrung his neck

Re: Transfer rumours over the years you wished had come true
I remember us being interested in a young player called Rod Fanni who was a French youth team centre back.

He would have played along side Julian Dicks but it was about the time when Jiffy Condoms were about to sponsor our shirts and they wanted to make sure there was a clear barrier between dicks and fanni so it didn’t happen

Re: Transfer rumours over the years you wished had come true
Lyall was after Paul Mariner for some time during the early 70’s when he was at Plymouth, but he turned us down and signed for Ipswich instead.

Another, which has already been mentioned, was Kerry Dixon.

Lyall also tried to sign Bruce Bannister and Alan Warboys when they were at Bristol Rovers (remember the ‘Smash and Grab’ headlines when they were both knocking them in for fun?) Again, it came to naught.

Re: Transfer rumours over the years you wished had come true
Didn’t we try to sign Kerry Dixon in the 80’s from Chelsea? He wanted to move to Arsenal and Chelsea didn’t want him to go there but were willing to sell to us, he then turned us down from what I remember.

Also Clubcall had us down to sign Gheorghe Hagi and Pep Guardiola towards the end of there careers

Shaun Wright Phillips. Considering the number of crocks we've signed over the years amazed the he didn't make it past our medical.....

Kenny Dalglish had a weeks trial in the late 60s but got homesick and went home,and we had Sol Campbell as a kid but someone racially abused him and he went to the Yids
