FC Clacton have appointed Mark Nicholls as their new manager and some of my mates have seen that he played for Town in 2000. They are really up about it because he was also ex-Chelsea but I have this bad memory that he failed to impress when he was with us?

I've been finding ways of avoiding the conversation so far but can anyone remember him?

I was excited that he was coming but he was very underwhelming unfortunately. I think you've only got to check his subsequent career to see where he went after playing for us.

I remember us beating Crystal Palace 1-0 thanks to a penalty which Nicholls won by a bit of a dramatic fall in the box. Don't remember anything else about him!

Won a penalty by falling over v Palace on his debut (also the league debut of Ashley Cole). Got punched by Kevin Muscat v Wolves (I think). Was rubbish.

The only thing he did for us was getting his face in the way of Kevin Muscat's elbow.


Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day,teach a man to fish and you give him an excuse for him to escape from the wife and kids for the weekend and drink lots of beer.

I remember us getting 2 strikers from Chelsea in that era.

Livingstone   big  strong physical aggressive hard working
And Nicholls ..  the opposite in most of those

I thought it was Michael Boulding got elbowed by Muscat? Away at wolves where we won 1-0, sandwiched between the 5-2 and 6-2 win against Palace and Wimbledon?

Abdul may be talking about a separate incident, but Muscat definitely did Boulding. About a minute in:

I was amazed Chelsea had given him a contract because he was rubbish with us.

My wife got more fight in her than he ever did.
