Fast Eddie was a few years later

Good spot!. Eddie wasn't as tough a tackler that's for sure

None of them were past it in the 90/91 season when Young came in the summer of 1990 and we finished 3rd in May 1991. Solid and hard defence with a lethal front pair. Sounds like an Essex girl.

Agreed. But I was referring to the Premier League only - which started 1992/3

Looks all a bit desperate at times, but it's great to see someone standing in the box. It's not that complicated!

I think this has the makings of one of the best all time
in terms of central back pairings and goalkeeper. Not sure if it betters Martyn/Young/Thorn in 1992/93 as far as Premier League years - although Young was past his best by then

Earlier competition would be the Burridge/Cannon/Gilbert and Jackson/McGoldrick/Blyth

Of course, they have Kouyate and Luka as predominantly defensive midfielders in front of them which helps at one end and hinders at the other

Young and Thorn were great, probably the best partnership in the old Div 1, but they didn't have the LB and RB that we have now, though i cant remember who they were to tell the truth.
