Even though it was just our third Champions League season, we already had a

custodian with extensive European football experience in David Seaman.

While English teams were still prohibited from playing in European football, our

renowned custodian arrived in 1990. However, the following year, he played for

us in the previous European Cup. He was one of our great players in 1994,

allowing only three goals all season as we won the Cup Winners Cup. So

Seaman's insight was crucial in 1998 when Champions League football started.
