Wasn't there some controversy around him (whilst with us) instigating a goal celebration that involved the players all "playing dead"? 

Nah  that was just the defence when he was in it.

Absolute fucking twat & up there right on the top of my ‘most detested’ list. Took the piss out of us, the story were he was coming back from injury & on the treadmill overlooking the training pitches, took some sarnies in & sat off, could see anyone approaching, so sprayed himself with water to make it look like he’d be busting it. Sums the cunts lack of proffesionalism up, I absolutely detest the fat waste of skin

And his critics were less kind

Remember going to a game at Sheff Weds in 93 around Christmas I think and he was an utter disgrace (as was Mark Wright to be fair) he genuinely looked and played like he'd been on the ale all night and I wouldn't have been surprised if he had at least that would have been an excuse 

Both him and Wright scored own goals as well I mean how often does the two centre half's score OG's ...

Remember the cunt going on soccer am and bragging about how he avoided a drink drive charge? 

He got paid to lick peoples armpits on Soccer AM.

 

He always tells that story of throwing a bucket of water over himself on a treadmill when the fitness coach left the room and then came back to congratulate him on his hard work. All this while laughing to the youth players thinking he was hilarious. Fat prick.

I don't really blame him for being who he was. I blame our recruitment at the time and basically the way the whole club was being run. Utter shambles.

I blame him ‘cos he’s a bellend, and people shouldn’t be bellends.

He was. But the club should've known that before they signed him. Like they should have known Dicks, Scales, Piechnik, Kvarme, Walters, Saunders etc. weren't good enough before we signed them.

Scales was a very good player and doesn't deserve to be in that group. Saunders was decent enough but not for a team that should have been aspiring towards the title.

I never took to him. He played well enough for Wimbledon, but I think my memory of him is tarnished by the performances of our team at the time.

His problem was his injury record rather than his performances when fit.

Funnily enough, my memories of Mark Wright are largely positive. Maybe the problem is my memory...!

Wright became a good player under Evans alongside Scales and Babb in a back three. He was pretty awful under Souness though.

He was a great sweeper, so probably best suited to being the centre of a back three rather than playing in a back four. I think most players were largely awful under Souness.

Surely the treadmill Ruddock was on would be keeping a record of distance covered? Any mid 90s gym enthusiasts confirm?

As I remember it his story was that he left it going while he sat there eating, threw the water on himself and got back on him when the coach/trainer came back.

I agree with you mostly, but wouldn’t have scales in with those gobshites. He was decent as I remember? Babb on the other hand

    • With the exception of Bissouma and Lamptey, none of their players are that good. The players started the game came from Wigan, Bristol City, Leyton Orient, etc.
    • I hear they may have enough no confidence letters to trigger a no confidence vote. 
    • It's payback for the public apology he had to do for it. I don't think he could believe Johnson made him do it. 
    • Problem I have with our pursuit of the cheating bastards is this:   They are squeezing the life out of the game - literally suffocating it to death.   I can handle us not winning league and chasing a better team, but there has to be a glimmer of hope you can actually catch them, that other teams might beat them, that winning is hard for them too.....some sort of jeopardy.   There is literally none with them and it is soul destroying....even the mancs under demento would often lose 6 or 7 games a season and win titles with 'normal' pts totals in the low to mid 80's, even the odd one or two in the 70's.   We knew it was pretty much fucked when 97 pts was not enough to beat them - ok we went again and won it the next year with an even higher total - but it was always going to be extremely difficult/nigh on impossible to maintain that level season after season.   As the OP says "So we have literally gone toe-to-toe with this multi-billion petrodollar outfit who have cheated to get where they are (this isn’t an allegation, it’s been proven to be so in the courts)" and arguably our best ever team or certainly one of them (and we have had some great teams) and its not enough.....They can spend 100m on a player like Grealish, he be dead average and its no bother....   Rest of league so often just curls up in a ball against them and begs not to be hit too hard - teams often fail to register a shot on target v them (even a side as good as chelsea) or win a corner.   They are strangling the life out of the game....pretty much no competition.   The feeling that pretty much every droppes point is likely to kill you just becomes so draining - recent draws away at Chelsea and Tottenham (whilst being weakened by covid) are not bad results at all 'normally' but frankly they have pretty much ended our hopes (along with the leicester shit show, but that is it isn't - can't really afford any bad days up against these now)   They'll probably win next 5 leagues at a canter and every time a challenger comes along ala us from about 2018-2020, they just swat them away with their chequebook...
