Hutchinson would not appreciate Tommy Craig and the same goes for a lot of you on here. Tommy Craig is still talked about by fans that saw him play over 40 years ago. Do you honestly think Hutchinson will be talked about in 5 years, never mind 40!

That's only because he was in Coronation St.

TBF Tommy Craig was an exception player. The sort we could only dream about having today. Unfortunately he was a diamond in a ring full of quartz during his time here.

That was pretty much the case for the rest of his career, too. He seemed to join clubs that were downwardly mobile, poor bugger.  

We must not give opposition teams hope. We have to kill them.

He should have left us when we got relegated in 69/70
He was going nowhere fast hanging around with us and wasted 3 of his best career years

In 1969 Sheffield Wednesday paid £100,000 for his services, a club record transfer fee at the time, as well as a British record for a teenager.

Joe Baker doesn't come anywhere near a great centre forward. Try Bronco, How many times did Baker score 30 in a season?
Quite honestly, I wish he had signed. He'd only have followed Catterick to Everton. Just have a look at that team again that finished runners up. We've never done that since!!!

He'd have done a bit better than Bronco from 1962 onwards...

Arsenal
Baker recovered from his injuries and he returned to the UK in July 1962, joining Billy Wright's Arsenal for a club record fee of £70,000.[3] He made his debut against Leyton Orient on 18 August 1962, and in all spent four seasons with the Gunners. For three out of those four seasons (1962–63, 1964–65 and 1965–66) he was the club's top scorer; in total he scored 100 goals in 156 games in all competitions, making him one of the club's most prolific goalscorers of all time.

His pace and acceleration made him a highly effective and dynamic attacker, and he was equally adept with his feet and his head, despite his lack of height. With Geoff Strong he formed one of Arsenal's most prolific striking partnerships, but Arsenal's defence could not match the quality of their attack, which meant they were unable to finish above 7th in the league during his time at the club.[3]

TBH in these days of mercenaries and journeymen the likes of Hutch, Lee even Nuhui and a few others, any player staying longer than 3 or 4 years at a club seems quite rare.

Hutch seemed genuine in his interview about his time here and it's not the first time we've heard ex players say how much they've enjoyed it even when it's not been the best of time, so I'm sure there will be plenty that will be loyal, we just can't expect every player to be.

I was hoping/ thinking Fletch might be one of those players but I suspect it might have been what we were offering wages wise and he might be thinking he can get a longer deal. I just think he was a player that could do a job like Murray did at Brighton

Did you look that up on the back of one of your cigarette card?

Keith Ellis's record is a goal every other game! Was he a great centre forward?
