Good one. Although I'm not 100% sure he was released. I could look it up but why spoil it.

Released by the club or from jail?

I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!

Funnily enough Jimmy Carter has enjoyed a fair amount of post presidential success.

Probably score more goals than Benteke.

There's that Norwegian guy who did well in Turkey - topped the scoring charts last season by all accounts.

We seem to have got our money back at least.

We got paid money to take Zaha back. That is hilarious, particularly when it's those man u Juan Corrs.

That's a good point. We've done pretty well out of players being released by other clubs in recent years.

Clyne was on the scrap heap. Cahill was without a club, McCarthy was either free or near enough and Everton certainly wanted shot of him. Ayew was also unwanted at Swansea.

Going back to Collymore, I thought we paid about £150k for him, sold him to Southend after he didn't make it here, and they sold him to Forest for something close to a record at the time - maybe over £2m? I also refuse to do the research.

I have clear memories of Collymore at Palace. Nobody could make sense of him as he seemed far too tall to be a poacher like Wright, and so surely had to be a target man, like Bright, but he was crap in the air. He also had a few games on the wing, but had no final ball at all, much to the disapproval of Messers Bright and (I think still) Wright.

When given a chance to play up front he would often burst through two or three defenders in spectacular fashion before blasting the ball over the top of the Whitehorse lane end.

Somehow at Southend he forced himself to place his shots low into the corners, and almost overnight he was a very valuable asset. The rest is history.

Southend also did well by getting Chris Powell off us for a song I think?

One which annoyed me at the time was a when Steve Kabba was sold to Sheff Utd.

He had been on loan at Grimsby where he had scored 6 goals in 14 games. He then was sold to Sheff Utd where he scored 11 goals in 33 games.

I'm sure this was back when Trevor Francis was manager, and who did we end up with............Ade Akinbiyi !!!!!!

Collymore was bought from non league for a cool £100k so to sell him after Wright had left for only £150k seemed a strange decision to me. 6 months later he was sold to Forest for over £2m.

We did get 12.5% of sell ons though so got money out of that move and also when he moved on to Liverpool (as Southend had a % clause too)

At least we haven't got rid of pure diamonds like Chelski have!

I'm sure it was 2 million - not Alan Smith's finest hour, he reckons you could not reasonably have predicted Collymore's rise based on what he saw at Palace. But Collymore used to light the place up every time he came on, was often a sub to Wright and Bright, this is the biggest one to have got away by a long way
