cheat Posted April 2, 2022 Share Posted April 2, 2022 Pre-amble for any new posters/readers Most of you will be up to speed on the famous Alan Harper Award, but just for any new readers, here's a quick explanation. Points are awarded for misdemeanours throughout the season and the player with the most points at the end of the season takes the prestigious award. Points are awarded as follows, Yellow card - 1 point Penalty conceeded - 2 points Penalty missed - 2 points Red card - 3 points Own goal - 3 points Alan Harper was a squad member of the excellent Everton side of the 80s, who always seemed to have a stormer against us - in fact he scored the first goal against us in the 1985-86 F.A. Cup semi final. So when Wednesday signed him for £275,000 in June 1988 it's fair to say that most Wednesdayites were pretty pleased with the signing. Predictably, he then turned out to be absolute garbage for us. It is not his lack of form that sees this competition named after him though, but his antics in a 4-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge, in which he conceeded a penalty, scored an own goal and got booked, an impressive 6 points all in one game.
