Well since the war the following players fit the bill. I have not included those who originally came on loan and then signed later.

Eoin Hand
Lee Bradbury
Deon Burton
Paul Walsh
Guy Whittingham
Johnny Gordon
Chris Kamara
Bobby Kellard
Brian Lewis
Pat Neil
Paul Wood

In fact that is a whole team of eleven. Quite a number of them are Pompey legends and I have written about them in the Sunday Toast or other specials. With Crouch, now half of them are strikers.

Crouch will I think become the first player to be resigned at a greater cost than he was sold for (only a mere 5-6 million). It is difficult to check because fees are not often disclosed, as indeed the Crouch fee has not.

One last point of note Peter Crouch scored after only eight minutes of his debut at Wolves, can he do the same at Stamford Bridge on August 16th or whenever it is played.

Welcome back Peter!

And yes before you all ask Toast will be back soon, possibly before the Charity Shield. Got any topics or players you would like covered in this ever popular series send eastneydave a PM or e-mail pompeyrug.

Dave, good listing. Interested in Pat Neil, we are talking the amateur international left winger of the 1950's. Did he sign professional get sold and return? My memory fails, but I did play football with Pat Neil when he was at The Northern Grammar School, in Mayfield Road.

Bondie - that is right left for Wolves in 1956 after playing nine games when Gordon Dale was injured. Returned from the famous Amateur club Pegasus in 1962 and played just one game Derby home in September. He then moved on to Poole Town.
