Also as far as players who have single handedly torn us a new one - Lee Steele and Gary Taylor Fletcher spring to mind.
Lee Trundle is another to have single-handedly destroyed us in a game.
Although it was an away game, Nathan Ellington for Bristol Rovers in a Boxing Day game in the early 2000s absolutely ripped us to shreds. One of those occasions where everything a player does is several levels above every other player on the pitch.
I remember Ellington too. I think the game ended about 5-3 and Jamal Campbell-Ryce scored an absolute worldie. Would've been about 2003. Whatever happened to Ellington after he went to Wigan.... never seemed to do it above league 1 level. But what a player.
