80s. Neville Southall was voted Football Writers Player of the Year in 1985 and, perhaps his finest display that season, came at Sheffield Wednesday. In this photo from that match, who is the England international wearing the number seven shirt being foiled by the keeper?

Sheffield Wednesday v Everton

90s. Who am I describing? This winger was a Man of the match in an FA Cup Final and a few years later, he had a spell at Sheffield Wednesday which ended in 1990 when he signed for a west country club managed by one of the players in the defeated side in that Cup Final. He only played once for his new team - breaking his leg in that match, he was loaned out to Shrewsbury a year later in his fight to get fit again and broke the same leg in his second game for them and never played league football again.

00s. Name this man who faced us during this decade while playing for Sheffield Wednesday.

10s. This man played international football against England last season and was also in the last Sheffield Wednesday team to play at Cardiff City Stadium, who is he?
