Tommy Smith

Recommended Posts

Very exciting player. Loved watching him. 

One of my favourite goals was under Burley and included Tommy Smith. I can't remember if he scored it or set it up. But I remember the build up between players. Amazing goal. 

And I didn't realise one of those goals in the clip above was Smith. In my head that was Lupoli that holds off a defender, rounds the keeper and sells a dummy or two. That was my only memory of Lupoli anorl!! Smith might have been even better than I remember then!! 

Wish we had him here for longer at his best.

As I remember he went back to Watford believing they had a better chance of promotion.  It was probably a viable decision at that the time , but not such a good choice at the end of the season. I hoped we might re sign when we got promoted, but breathed a sigh of relief when we got Eddie Lewis instead.

There was a thread on Facebook recently where people stated players who they though were overrated. Smith was my choice.

A good player, had some good moments, but his touch was terrible at times. Similar to Jonny Russell. Surprised he got player of the year to be honest.

Ah that team, all built on free..how much would Tommy, Bisgaard, Reich, Idiakez, Raziak and so on cost us in today market...

 

Free would still be free, perhaps a lot more in wages though. Rasiak was a Polish international, so would’ve cost a fair bit. Idiakez in his two seasons prior to coming to us played in two teams that were relegated from the second division in Spain to the third. I can’t imagine he would be on mega money. Reich was a unused player in a Germany’s best team at the time. Bisgaard was on the downturn of his career. Smith was always a consistent performer at Watford and Sunderland, not outstanding, but he managed to keep in the top two divisions for a while. I think he had a few cracks at the Premier League but couldn’t ever stick.

Watford were in the Premiership when they signed him
