    Avery John

    I see that one of my all-time favourite EL players, Avery John, superb player and a top-man, will be playing in the world cup providing T&T knock out Guatemala.

    Excellent, I am delighted for him. I don't care how he did at Shels ands Longford, but he was superb for Bohs, especially during his first spell, and until the death of his best friend during his second spell he was superb too. I have a lot of time for Stephen Kenny, but getting rid of Avery to bring in Paul McNally was an absolutely crazy thing to do.

    Anyway, has an EL player ever played in the world cup?

    T&T have to beat Bahrain in a playoff - it would be great to see him there.

    Don't think so.

    Mark Rutherford was one name being bandied about when Jamaica were signing anyone and everyone before 1998. Dave Norman played for Canada in 1986 after playing for UCD in the winters of 82, 83 and 84 (or may have been 83, 84 and 85). Obviously a few players have played eL and gone on to play in the World Cup - Keane, Moran, etc.

    T&T are a nice little team. I went to the USA-T&T qualifier in August, they had a player sent off early and they put Dwight York in midfield. They really didnt do much in that game. They have a few players in the lower English divisions plus a couple more in MLS and the rest from their home league.
    The one thing that one may could call funny about T&T is that they have one white guy, Chris Birchall born in England and plays for Port vale.

    If you can keep your head when all around you have lost theirs, then you probably haven't understood the seriousness of the situation.

    As Avery John or John Avery?

    Great player, tool of a man with how he fooked over the club. He said he was going home to look after his sick mam, and instead signed for a South African team - Kiaser Cheifs - if I recall correctly.

    I think Kevin Moran also played for Bohs for a few games? Was with UCD for a few years, but that was before we were in the league.

    Does anyone remember a player called Falcon Rose? Think he played with Sligo Rovers? I remember his name being mentioned for a possible call-up to the South African team for the 1998 World Cup. Don't think it ever came to fruition though.

    Why? What did he do? Heard he wasn't up to much as a player.

    Avery scum, scum scum.

    He ended Peter Hanrahan's career during the 3-3 cup match a few years back. He went through Hanrahan with the ball no where near. Bohs fans never really tried to the defend his foul.
