No way was Beattie the worst.
Back in the 70s we signed a player from Walsall called Bernie Wright. He played about ten times, scored twice, had about four fights and got sent off twice. Should have been a BOXER cos he sure as fook wasnt a footballer, and he was soon packed off back to Walsall.


Edit..... have just googled him and come up with this piece.................

Bernie Wright, nicknamed Bernie The Bolt, was a professional English football player. He signed for Everton in 1972 from Walsall but only played 10 times for the club before having his contract terminated for 'serious misconduct'.
It is rumoured that this 'misconduct' occurred when he discovered he'd been dropped and he chased the club manager around the training ground.


Now he was much worse than Beattie. :D :D :D

I was going to say Brett Angell. If he did have the number 9 he must win. I almost feel as though we all deserve a game in the 9 shirt for the Blues gives that he got a go...

While he was playing for us it's fair enough to criticise him, but he's moved on and so should we. He's not the first player (or number 9) to fail here and I'm sure he won't be the last.

Your surely not suggesting Yakubu will flop are you? He now has the number 9 shirt and all the expectation that comes with it. Surely he cant be as bad as Beattie.

Did I mention names? I wasn't suggesting anything like that, but I'm pretty sure Yakubu won't be our last ever number 9 in our history.

I actually think beattie might have an amazing season after leaving and I cannot understand why people slate him so much. at the begining of last season he was our top scorer being played in a role that did not suit him then moyes brought in AJ and instead of going 442 dropped beattie which screwed his confidence. I don't think beattie was given enough of a chance last season.

There is no way I would agree Beattie was the worst No. 9 for us. I'd go with Angell, even 'Barn Door' Barlow was more prolific. I thought Beattie was unlucky playing for us. He ran his socks off every game for us, particularly once he lost that extra weight. I just don't hink it was a good match. He is a killer finisher, but spent too much time chasing and often played too deep. I thought things might change when AJ came, but I think Moysey had already decided it wasn't to be and he got frozen out. Give the lad some respec though, he still came on and worked hard. A good professional, I hioe he does well for the Blades.

BT scored a cracking header for Sheff U yesterday. Just highlights how it was a lot to do with our game why he didnt perform well here. He is not a target man, he thrives on crosses.

Give him a break, he may have been crap 90% of the time, but i seem to remember him pushing for a world cup place not to long ago after a great streak for us. Plus at least he never once bitched or moaned about not playing.

Just because Moyes said Beattie would do a good job for England and Beattie himself said he was doing all he can to get into the England team at the time doesnt mean he was EVER going to make it. There were others way above Beattie in the pecking order.
Full marks for his attitude though.

Beattie was his own worst enemy. He never had the talent, was far too slow, and i questioned his commitment on numerous occasions. Still i wouldnt begrudge wishng the lad well, we payed the over odds for him, not his fault.

nearly all our goals come from crosses! Arteta's set-pieces and crosses in general, Cahill seems to score a fair few headers, Osman the odd one, even Arteta - yet Beattie couldn't seem to buy a goal. He had a couple of months were he looked quite decent, but he was an absolutely massive flop. To be honest, the fact he didn't bitch or moan I'm not entirely convinced is a good thing - he was below two youngsters in the pecking order and he never even bat an eyelid, doesn't exactly fill me with confidence that he was all fired up to play well for us. He looked out of shape ever since he signed. I have nothing against Beattie and when we signed him I thought it was a good move, but he was a waste of space last season - I'd rather play my dad up front than Beattie last year, at least he would have given it his best shot. I'm pleased he came out with good words about the club and I wish him the best, but he was a bona fide turkey.

No way was Beattie the worst.
Back in the 70s we signed a player from Walsall called Bernie Wright. He played about ten times, scored twice, had about four fights and got sent off twice. Should have been a BOXER cos he sure as fook wasnt a footballer, and he was soon packed off back to Walsall.
Edit..... have just googled him and come up with this piece.................

Bernie Wright, nicknamed Bernie The Bolt, was a professional English football player. He signed for Everton in 1972 from Walsall but only played 10 times for the club before having his contract terminated for 'serious misconduct'.
It is rumoured that this 'misconduct' occurred when he discovered he'd been dropped and he chased the club manager around the training ground.
Now he was much worse than Beattie. :D :D :D

Knew a lad Alan Wilson in the 70s played for the Blues (one game for the first team I think) Told us Bernie arrived for training one morning pissed wearing a ripped pullover,black eye carrying a half empty bottle of Ossy Whites.He certainly seemed a colourful character.Anybody know what happened to him after his return to Walsall? Would love to see him doing a guest spot on Sky Sports on Sat sitting next to Charlie Nicholas.
