Mainstay of the 1992 championship side. Chris Whyte (1990-93) 146 apps, 6 goals Clubs are only as good as their cult heroes and Chris Whyte was up there with the eccentric best. He was a mainstay of the 1992 championship side with the sort of elasticated legs that made Carlton Palmer look like a stunted hobbit. You watched him and felt he was overreaching in every way, but for that year he was fantastic.
