Thanks for all the memories Paul. I'll really miss you getting turned inside out by 4th rate cloggers all day long. What a waste of wages, and he's a former International? Incredible, without doubt one of the worst players I have ever seen impersonating a professional footballer. Russell Slade wants shooting for signing that clown on a two year deal. The mind boggles.

Get off the fence and tell us what you really think .  

What boggled the mind further is that it took RS ages to decide he was worthy, its not like he had one outstanding game on trial and we snapped him up , he was with us for several weeks and several games before RS decided he was good enough to warrant that length of deal.
Seem to recall another guy at the same time and same position who looked better to me but interest wasn't progressed.

Weren’t some impressed with him as a triallist before he signed?

On the whole a flop here but I hear he had things happening off the pitch which could quite easily have affected him.

A shame it never worked out for either party but I have no ill feelings towards him. Hopefully he can get back on track elsewhere.

Andrew Fox!

Looking at Dixon's pedigree he appeared a good signing. Only a couple of seasons previously he had played a lot of games at Championship level, been a Sccottish International, all the signs were positive. Havent looked back but suspect his signing was greeted favourably by fishy posters.
In practice he was a long way short of what was required. Gave oppponents far too much room to get crosses in and was extremely slow on the turn. If he did get forward he simply couldnt get back.

Who knows what the problem was (he was seperated from his wife and young family which cannot have helped) but he has proved very poor value for money.

We and he, move on

I wouldn't necessarily say he was one of the worst, I have seen some dross over the years especially some that Woods signed, but as a full back he was crap.
