Just read Chris Hargreaves talking about tomorrow's game on the Torquay website about his time at Town. He says: “There was talk about moving for a million pounds but it didn’t materialise." Now, nothing against him, I thought he was an OK striker who was unlucky to be with us at a time when we had some much better ones, but did this really happen? In those days a million pound striker was still pretty special....

I've read his first book (very good read, would highly recommend) and I don't recall him mentioning that.

That'd be around the same time Eric Cantona went to Man U for £1.2m. Sounds plausible.

It was probably a tongue-in-cheek article in the Sing When We're Fishing fanzine.  He must've thought it was a mini-edition of the Evening Telegraph.


Serial thread killer.

Million pound transfer? Bonkers. He was a young striker/winger who fundamentally wasn't very good at scoring or attacking but he did end up as a capable lower-division central midfielder.

If you mean his book "Where's Your Caravan" he mentions it in the first line of the 2nd chapter entitled "Early Days"

"You can be Grimsby's first million pound player, if you would just realise it" and "I'm going to be letting you go Chris.

Those two comments came from two different managers within the space of four seasons: from a hot-tempered Alan Buckley at Grimsby Town, and a meek and mild Terry Dolan at Hull City.

I watched his time at Grimsby, mainly as a youth and a reserve always as a striker,

Buckley kept giving him a  game or two then dropping him ,

I think he was with the club as a pro for 5 years but never really had a long run in the 1st team,

When he was released he turned into a good midfield player,

Buckley never thought of that.


   I have just read a book on anti-gravity 
               I could not put it down. 
              
                                31 years in Suffolk but  Grimsby Born and Bred.
                                         63 years following the Mariners

He makes his dislike of Alan Buckley pretty clear in his book and almost goes as far to accuse him of ruining any chance of a career at the top.

Who would u put money on being correct though? Him or Buckley, AB knew a decent player when he spotted one.  Such as ageing centre backs languishing in Halifax reserve teams....
