Eddie Johnson Lookback "USA USA"

Postby rovingsheep » Sat Nov 11, 2017 11:36 am

Always a cult figure now with the city faithful. One of those classic "I was there moments" the relief when he finally scored against Doncaster was tangible. The noise midweek v Derby was tremendous. :bluescarf: We take a look back at the Eddie Johnson story

I think you 100 per cent right there. Almost comedy value but you wanted him to do well. Looking back I think the MLS at the time was probably equivalent to our 1st division or championship at best. Certainly much weaker than the current MLS. Interesting to see he smashed them back in when he returned to the MLS prior to his injury.

I remember being there when he finally scored, it was brilliant. Tbf he always tried and gave his all but he just wasn't good enough and I think he knew it lol.

He also scored an own goal in that game I think which was the season Preston nicked the last play off spot by the odd goal difference :banghead:

yes he did score an own goal that game...but we conceded 13 goals after that including 6 at Preston where Ross missed a penalty.
