1. "unintelligible language"
2. "ACID QUEEN"
3. "never once fails to turn a football thread into a himseelf thread"
4. "thumbs stalker often resulting in repetitive thumb strain"

You'd need to make a very good psychiatrist in order to guess what next in a eight yrs long line of hatred...

It’s Weiss.

“He made his first team debut on 24 May 2009, replacing Stephen Ireland from the substitutes bench after seventy minutes in the final game of the 2008–09 season”

Pretty sure also Cunningham was promoted under Pearce.
In fairness, though, Pearce's tenure was also the most distracted age of my then symphaty for the Blues.

4. "thumbs stalker often resulting in repetitive thumb strain"

my memory (a very fading one) start off an early spring 1970 game where my granddad managed to have me grabbing a Buzzer signed shirt.
from then on my best guess is SWP, the lovely whirligig midget. sure I am not gonna get cigar with this, tho.

Probably Buzzer.
He quite often turned up legless after pissing it up with Bestie.

:lol: :lol: :lol: rightly so, I'd say.
Bestie was not only the best Munchenhauser ever (imho), but also the only decent human being of that lot (as far as I am aware).
