I was always a bit of a fan of big Dave, not sure he got enough credit for his battering ram days down Stoke.
Has anyone got any footage they can post up of a couple of his goals; I can remember him winning a Central Match Goal Of The Month award with a strike (I think) against Watford. I remember it had a massive bend/curve on it, I think Greavsie may have picked it, but I can remember there might have been some doubt about the intent as it may have struck the defenders boot as he struck it. There was another one where he ran at a defence (cant remember the opposition) and lost his balance, stumbling all over the place like a man on ice but somehow the ball ran with him and he managed to get a toe on the ball and prod it past the goalkeeper. It was a great goal for persistence alone I'm thinking these goals were something like 93/94 season. I'd love to see them both again if anyone can post them or point me in the right direction??
I used to record the Central Matches with Stoke and converted them to DVD years later. Trouble is I lent them out and never got them back sadly. Ive still got the classic 93 away game at Notts Forest at least. That's got another classic Regis strike, well sort of, a scuffed left foot shot low (and not very hard) across the keeper, it kind of bobbles in, I think it may even have gone through a defenders legs first. I think Stein had flicked it on for him to run onto - you'd have thought it would have been the other way around!!
While I think of it, there's another game I'd like to see the goals again from, it's probably from the same time too, it's a win over West Brom where Ray Wallace scores a belter and I think Martin Carruthers got a couple of crackers too. Any links/postings would be very welcome!
