The man with quite possibly the best left foot in the entire 1997 Merlin Premier League sticker book, Ian Harte talks us through his rollercoaster of a career that reads like a script from 90s football drama Dreamteam. He broke into the Leeds team and played alongside his uncle Gary and was a key member of the team rampaged through Europe to the semi final of the Champions League. The team also survived plane crashes, had supporters brutally attacked in Turkey and practically went out of business at the end of the decade. Harte went to Spain and played for Levante, then had to work his way back up to the top flight via Sunderland, Carlisle, Reading and finally Bournemouth. Now a football agent it was a pleasure to hear him reminisce about his days as Premier League footballer with a gold McDonalds card.
