    Last weekend I tried to find the name on line of the former Portsmouth central defender from the early 2010s who was cited as being the next big thing and then got sold off quite quickly. From recollection he had ginger hair and I think he was playing around the time Michael Appleton was manager. It has been annoying me for some time as I cannot remember what his name was. I think he was sold to a Championship club. Any ideas?

    I read somewhere that Roy Keane is on the verge of becoming Celtic's next manager. If so, I would give that 6 months!! A better option would be the far more intelligent Steve Davis, if he has any managerial leanings.

    Dave Kitson was around at the time in 2010/2012. And he was very ginger. I have since looked up Adam Webster and his hair has a reddish hue, so this could be the player that Ian Thumwood was referring to!!

    PS: What is it with this "eh" business SR?

    So Ireland ditch McCarthy for someone who has barely ever managed outside of the country, and this is what they get. Shock.

    He also said it was a defender, I wondered why you referred to a striker.

    He may well make a good coach one day, but never in a thousand years would Davis join Celtic. Too much of a blue-nose!

    I really need to get out more, but with a spare hour as my wife hasn't caught on to the fact that the clocks have gone forward, I found myself scanning for any mention of Frank Worthington, who died this week. I apologise if my scanning skills have missed one.

    He played for us at a bad time for me as a fan. Young kids, mortgage and being the sole earner meant prioritising so travel from the North West down to The Dell was a limited activity. But my first 'pass-out' was the Friday night game against Liverpool. Only one cousin came with me - the rest of the family were drooling over our three-week old daughter. My cousin was raving about Worthington.

    Wright plays the ball from deep, and Frank's first touch makes me wince. To mis-use a Strachanism, Frank traps it further than I could kick it, but being a class player he recovers and swings a perfect pass out to the left wing, taking out 300 Liverpool players (I might have mis-remembered this) and sets the left back (Kenna?) on his way. A deep cross and Wright heads back and ... well we know what happened then. So Frank is etched in my 'great moments' as a fan for that one pass.

    Final score. Saints 2 Liverpool 0 and our assault on the League Title was moving from dream to reality, sadly to be unrealised. Mind you, my cousin, being himself the father of three daughters, cautioned me that my daughter would only grow up to take the piss. That bit came true!

    I remember that night well. I was behind the goal in the Milton end so all it all happened the other end, though I had a great view of it as I was front row.

    You are, of course referring to this:



    Cracking goal and what a team!
