Apps: 293 Goals: 102

Before working alongside that lunatic Crabbers for Metro Radio, Gary Rowell carved out a half decent career for himself at Roker Park. For younger readers, he was the Kevin Phillips of his day. Rowell's breakthrough season was, like Shaun Elliott's, the relegation campaign of 1976/77. However, he helped the club bounce back with two top six finishes and eventually promotion in 1979/80, although injury restricted his contribution. Many of his 102 goals for the club kept Sunderland in the top flight for the following four seasons - and kept supporters living in a Gary Rowell world.
