    Joker has got in touch on Twitter regarding Adam Cox's photo with Andrei Kanchekskis.

    Joker rightfully says Kanchelskis was on loan at Manchester City during the 2000-01 the photo could well be in our required five year period (1997-2002).

    But we think the picture looks rather like the early nineties.

    Adam Cox can you clarify?
