Bit unfair putting Danny Swailes in there (I'm a picky bleeder just lately aren't I?!) his legs had gone when we got him but he never lacked for commitment.
I'm going with Yannick Salem. Aside from being the only County striker I ever saw making a run away from the opposition goal, he wins more by virtue of his Walter Mitty-esque wikipedia page! There'll be a Nobel prize on there next week!

I'll go for Jake Simpson, partly because he was bloody useless, and partly because, having made the difficult decision to go to Morecambe away a few seasons ago despite being ill, he managed to get sent off early on and help us on our way to a 5-0 drubbing. I ended up making myself more ill in the driving rain and I hold him personally responsible.

Jake Simpson for me - although not especially because of his early red card on that rainy night in Morecambe, when I thought he was a little unlucky, given the conditions, to find himself in the ball's path. (It did turn out to be one of the most miserable away-trips, and without doubt the wettest, that I have ever endured, mind!)
What I really couldn't stomach about Simpson Junior was the pretty obvious, nepotistic means by which he managed to get a game for County in the first place. He certainly had no talent to speak of, but, even then, I could have cut him some slack if he might have shown, in some modest way, that he gave a sh*t.
He didn't. And, worse still, was the arrangement whereby Daddy's Boy received a match fee for even the briefest of cameo appearances off the bench. That stank.
