seems like the guy was either a scout, or copied it from 442 magazine based on a couple of other topics that refer to it. Quite an interesting retrospective look methinks

Cherno Samba was the business.

 

His stats stayed shite but he was immense nonetheless.

 

Plying his trade in Finland these days.

 

He played for plymouth a couple of seasons back. Lots of promise...zero delivery.

On paper wouldn't argue with the 90 spaces between kaka and pennant........ just not in that order!!

 

to be fair, there's no indication (i don't think) that the players are ranked, although if they weren't then you'd expect them to be grouped by club or position or alphabetically, so maybe they are

To be fair to Chopra he was a complete monster in the youth team and reserves. I can remember a rumour doing the rounds that SAF had tried to sign him and Robson had told him to fuck off.

well, from Wiki, John Welsh #14 (who apparently plays in a similar style to Gerrard!!) has only had 4 top-flight games in his career thus far. doubt anyone else in the list has had as shoddy a career as him yet

 

Chopra played for the Mackems ftw

true, but he also managed to score against them without breaking stride from running on as a sub

Hmm, this list looks very FM-esque to me and the guy a bit of a bullshitter.

 

Just from those Jorman players he mentions most didn't make it and I can't remember them being really rated very highly at that time (with the exemption of Trochowski).

 

I particularly am puzzled with this one:

 

46. Christian Petereit (RB/CB, Schalke 04)

 

I've never heard of him tbh, neither from the club he is now playing for. No wonder they are playing in the league that is something like the 6th or th division. But apparently the guy with the list considered him as one of the only defender with the potential to be "world-class". :angry:
