So I was having a chat with someone the other day and he mentioned the name of a player I had completely forgotten about... someone who pulled on a blue shirt yet and was actually pretty well known but was so anonymous and made such little impact for us that I had completely forgotten about them.

That player was Christian Dailly.

That's got me to thinking... what other players fit that bill? It might sound strange to say "Name a player you've forgotten" but someone might may come up with a name that absolutely falls into that criteria.

It won't be someone who was absolutely appalling as they made an impact - albeit a negative one - so come on, get those thinking caps on.

Over to you, Zoners.

Julian Bennett. Very brief career with us before going over the barrier into the North Bank in a cup game, never to be seen again

John Spicer. Clubs actually spent money to sign him and he scored a penalty in a shootout for Arsenal in the league cup.

But I think most people would remember him as he was such a high profile signing. Hand on heart, how many people remember Christian Dailly playing for us?
I remember Christian Dailly but agree with your point about Ricketts, can't imagine anyone has forgotten when we signed him, and how it turned out.

Jemal Johnson. I actually remember being quite excited when we signed him. Had a good YouTube highlights reel if I remember correctly.

Some names that you'd have completely forgotten until mentioned and a couple so obscure you probably had to google.
