Dean Coney was brought in to Dave Stringer’s Norwich City side, which spent much of 1988/1989 in the top three, to bolster their firepower during the season’s endgame, in a fairly realistic stab at the title. However, Coney, who cost the Canaries £350,000 from QPR (where to be honest he scored a measly 7 in 48 although he often appeared in midfield) was not about to improve his or Norwich’s stock. Coney was often brought on as a sub, but rather than finishing teams off he simply upset many of the City fans growing increasingly agitated by his misfiring blunderbuss. They finished fourth. Coney’s only goal in 17 appearances for City was against Aston Villa when a Nigel Spink save rather aptly rebounded off Dean’s arse.
