I think 6 goals in 12 appearances, including 2 against Everton and 1 against United, makes its own case.

 

Ah, I remember the 'Fuck off, speedy!' chants with venom. Then he signed for us and scored those goals (especially when Rushie couldnt score against united) and we all loved him!

 

Then I think Souey came in and fucked him off not realising Speedy had become an almost crowd favourite! Those were the days!

It was the goal against Man U that sealed Speedie's credentials.

My first ever trip to OT that. I remember the cunts throwing loads of coins at us and I walked away with a few bob.

True story from Melwood (courtesy of Molby); Souness called everyone into a big circle at the start of training, and said "today, we're practicing drop balls; first it'll be me and Speedie" Speedie marched into the center of the ring and Souness gave him one of his Rangers-esque-nearlytakeyourfuckinglegoff challenges, left him crumpled in a heap on the floor and then said "training has finished for today, go and get changed and get yourselves home"

Apologies, out of rep- that was bloody great.

 

Barnes Barnes Barnes. I havent got rose tinted glasses- he was incredible. I havent seen a player display that kind of natural skill in the modern game.

 

(check out Neil Webb playing for utd- back when they were making the sort of signings we've been guilty of past few years)

I read somewhere that Kenny had wanted David Speedie for ages and had tried to sign him, on more than occasion, before he eventually got him. Speedie had fallen out with Souness years before, when he made his debut for Scotland. From memory, Souness had a pop at Speedie for not passing to him and Speedie told him to fuck off.
