Claudio Cannigia playing for Dundee takes a few moments to sink in. Dundee signed a whole host of South American and Italian players around this time, but not long after they went into administration with debts of around £25M.
Cannigia did quite well there though and got a move to Rangers.
I think at one point ESPN started showing Dundee games live in South America due to the interest it created. Maradona may even have come to Dundee to watch his mate playing, not sure about that though.

This may well be more me being thick than truly worthy of this thread, but I had no recollection of Don Hutchison playing for West Ham, in two stints between 1994-1996 and 2001–2005. I think of him mainly as an Everton player, in moments such as the Sander Westerweld goal kick rebound fiasco.

Complete opposite, I only remember him playing for West Ham.

:lol: Sunderland was generally his best spell. Had a really good season in 2000-01 up there when Sunderland were finishing 7th in premier league.

Alan Brazil - United

Remember playing a football manager game back in the 80s and wondering who he was

Just been reading the thread on Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, shocked to find out he ended his career at Cardiff City. That one must have totally passed me by.

Ian Rush at Newcastle. Robbie Fowler at Leeds. Two that spring to mind. And didn’t Socrates play for Garforth Town once?

David Lu17 moving to PSG for such a high fee, right after being one of the main architects in Brazil losing 1-7 against Germany in the World Cup, is easily forgotten.
David Lu(sing)1-7?

How did I not know about this! And what was a 28 year old Kluivert doing playing for Newcastle United?? Did he decline that young?

He signed a few weeks before that game, actually.

Yep, pretty much. He was poor at Newcastle to.

Not really a "did he really play for them?" so much as a "did he really manage them?" , but I completely forgot Tony Adams managed Granada until the commentator mentioned it during the Celta Vigo - Granada match a few days ago.

This is my big Hutchison moment (from 1.13). I've erased the six or so years he spent at his main PL club in favour of this silliness :lol:
I had no recollection of Mark Hughes ever having played for Everton until I just watched that. Had to Wiki it!
