David Dunn, Damien Duff, Garry Flitcroft, Craig Short, seem like obvious omissions... depends what point you mean the whole of 2000 covered two-half seasons.

All i know about the staff is that Souey was manager, Parkes was no2, and Dean Saunders was probably a coach.

I hated souey and saunders.
I think Fevre might have been the physio as well.

I might be wrong, but I thought Saunders ( :wanker: ) was brought in after we finished 6th in the PL... about the time things started going wrong. ;)

Fevre came with Brian Kidd in 98/99

I think lots of fans liked Souness. I don't like him as a person, I think he's an egocentric tosspot. But I begrudgingly acknowledge he did a good job with us, got us promoted, won the LC, got us into 6th... I didn't think he was the driving force behind the success like Hughes is now, but he's still got the second best record of any of our managers in my lifetime. It's hard to argue against that.

So Fevre came in in 1999 only thing Kidd did right lol.

Souey after he got us into 6th i got the feeling that he took us as far as he could and when he went i was pleased even more pleased when Sparky was appointed.
