Another West Ham McKnightmare On Green Street?
Hopefully it is all paper talk but West Ham fans, with a memory, will be shuddering at the thought of us buying a keeper from Scotland. I am old enough to remember the far from great Bobby Ferguson, but he was a veritable Peter Shilton when compared to the last keeper we signed from an Old Firm club, Allen McKnightmare. In 88-89, we plummeted out of the old First Division with McKnight playing 23 games - and his incompetence is legendary.
McKnight was not Scottish - he collected and dropped 10 caps for Northern Ireland - but he was bought from Celtic and fits the stereotype of the typical Scottish keeper: bloody hopeless. If we shell out £4m for Allan McGregor, as is being rumoured, then there is no hope! The Fizzy Pop here we come! At least McKnight only cost £250,000!
