16 years ago: Anthony Gardner tipped for top by 442 magazine

Port Vale defender Anthony Gardner went on to play for Tottenham Hotspur, Hull City, Crystal Palace and win an England cap.

However, in 2000 he was 20 year-old defender with less than 50 first-team appearances under his belt when 442 magazine published this article.

Sadly, when the article was published, Gardner had already left the Valiants and joined Spurs for £1m – a fee that many fans undervalued the giant defender’s worth.
