Recalling his 6 minute "perfect" hat-trick for Crystal Palace.

I'm sure he was remembering that famous night at Anfield when he changed his words from THE proudest moment to ONE of the proudest moments of his career.

Nice little video, that!

Remember him scoring against Hull City in the early rounds of the Auto Windscreens Shield in 1997/8 - smashed it into the roof of the net from a pretty tight angle. Didn't really know much about him back then - only that he was in for Macca at right back.

I seem to remember him getting a little bit of stick when he first started out for us as a youngster. Soon flourished into one of the better players we produced.

I remember him getting a load of stick in his last season with us! (mainly down to Lennie Lawrence playing him in centre midfield)

As I recall, he was reasonably well accepted as a full-back but suffered when he was moved into central midfield for some reason when he really wasn't ready for that role. I seem to remember the nickname "Jogging Danny B" as the game often seemed to pass him by as he jogged around in midfield!

Indeed. He was awful in centre midfield and I never worked out why anyone thought he should be playing there. To give him the benefit of the doubt, he wasn't helped by being partnered in the middle with the hapless Menno Willems. This was one of the worst Town midfields I've ever seen, and I've seen some sh1t ones!

Seem to remember midfields in that era including Chapman Campbell Butterfield, hardly imposing, midget midfielders!

Also, cant decide if Danny B going greyish makes me feel old, fortunate, or worried.......

He probably went to midfield because although he was a promising prospect  he was never going to permanently dislodge Macca (that's the real one and legend, not Mr McKeown the GK.

I remember Pouton being shunted out to the right to accommodate DB in the centre!

I think playing Danny B in midfield explains the moniker "MadLen" late of another message board.
