Even in that season Wilkins was still our best in the middle. We've never really replaced him. Top player and one of my all timers - but yes he wasn't much lop as a manager.

Personally I blame Richard Thompson. Yes the club was well run (compared to today) and was profit making, but to not really improve the playing staff and sell Darren Peacock/piss off Gerry Francis was a mistake which we've never recovered from. Both down to him I believe.

As for Wilkins, didn't he go after Roberto Baggio? Had he arrived who knows what would've happened. But once again, his appointment was probably the cheaper option for Thompson rather than get a big name manager in. But had Mark Hately come in fully fit and Wilkins not rely on Gallen/Dichio and drop Bradley Allen beforehand, we may have been ok as our side was certainly good enough.

It seemed to me at the time that the two prevailing problems that season were Baldikins managerial immaturity and Alan McDonald being injured much of the season. Especially as Darren Peacock was gone.

^^^^^this^^^^^ - it was the best time in our history to have invested in the playing side and kick on

Yes indeed - Tossman's leadership was the real main factor. Wonder what he's doing now?
