When Keegan was here we were linked with just about every World Class player of the time.

I seem to remember Roberto Baggio being linked. As for right backs, he's not the best player, but Brett Emerton?

:good:

 

Fooking funny that. Forgot about Terry as well, great shout. Didn't we have a bid accepted only for him to turn it down before the Russian arrived?

Linked with Maldini under KK. Actually tried to get him and Shearer as a double signing if the story I heard was true.

Miguel was close to signing under SBR.

 

But if we had signed him instead of Carr, then Freddy wouldn't have been able to make that stupid pun in the Chronicle about a garage.

 

Funny guy..................funny guy.

The Peter Schmeichel thing is a myth. We never had him on trial. We did however try to sign Hyypia.

We had Hyppia on trial under KK but never offered him a deal iirc. Did we try and get him at a later date too?

Shame we never got him, could have saved us from a whole load of shite centre-halves.

Cobblers!

 

We had him on trail in 1987! McFaul wanted £500K to sign him and the board told him to go forth :razz:

Me! I remember when he was on trial - never made the first team but was definitely training with us. We had Perry Digweed on loan around the same time as well!

So despite the fact that he'd never had a professional club, nobody in this country had heard of him, the internet wasn't around back then, you remember him being on trial but never playing for us? :razz:

Number 16

Peter Schmeichel

Denmark

Years Played: 1984 - 2003

Why he's one of the greatest: Peter Schmeichel's string of outstanding saves in the 1992 European Championship Final were crucial to Denmark's shocking triumph in the tournament.

Peter Schmeichel's acrobatic goaltending made him one of Europe's most dominant keepers of the 1990s. He enjoyed his first success with his second club Brondby, claiming four Danish league titles over five seasons. Schmeichel, having almost been recruited by Newcastle in 1987, made his mark in English football with Manchester United. In his second season with the Red Devils, he claimed the first ever English Premiership title. Manchester United went on to win the league and FA Cup double the following season, repeating the feat in 1996. Over his eight seasons with United, his brilliant goaltending would play a crucial role in their five league championships, as well as their "treble" victory of 1999, as they added European Cup glory to their list of accomplishments.

"The Great Dane" led Denmark by example, as his crucial saves against Holland's Marco van Basten in the semifinals and Germany in the final match helped Denmark earn their first European Championship trophy. Shockingly, Denmark hadn't even qualified but was invited to participate when Yugoslavia was ejected from the tournament.

Capped 128 times for his country, Peter Schmeichel's loyal service to the art of goaltending has branded him as one of the best.

Again, myth. He's spoken at length about his career, and has never mentioned this trial. Strange don't you think?

May never have had a professional club at that point in time, but he was Denmark's first choice keeper. :drinks:
