I remember being in the stands all those years ago watching him in games attempting to jump....it was like being in the gym at school and watching the really unfit dumpy chap resentfully but dutifully doing star jumps.

Congratulations sir!

Worth a star jump but an oaty biscuit is probably more inviting.....Blimey, listen to us....We turned into Tomas Brolin after all.

Burridge is a good call and maybe Mark Lazarus but for me it has to be Rachid Harkouk. 21 goals in 54 appearances (probably a fair few as sub). What wouldn't we give for that now
And almost guaranteed a fist-fight every other game

Similarly, what constitutes a legend? Where's the line between cult hero and legend?

Jedinak was described by one poster on this thread as a cult hero but for me he's an out and out legend.

Of the current lot, Ward a cult hero possibly? Does get a lot of stick for his ability though from some. Rightfully sometimes.

Gabbiadini played 15 games hardly a reason to elevate to cult hero status. I seem to remember he replaced Wright, not very well.

Example: Eric Young

Good description. I'd go for Gabor Kiraly
