With the English Premier League kicking off this weekend, FTBL caught up with West Australia's former EPL keeper Andy Petterson, who made a memorable EPL debut.
Ipswich dodged a bullet.
It was very tight, with only three points separating seven clubs from 20th to 14th on the final table of the first EPL season.
Palace ended up being relegated with Boro and Forest. Ipswich finished 16th.
Petterson had started the season at Luton.
But he went out on loan to Swindon Town mid-season before his late-season loan to Ipswich.
Three clubs in one season was par for the course for Petterson who had a 16-year journeyman career in England before returning to Australia in 2005.
“Back then there wasn’t a lot of football on TV outside of the EPL. Not like now.
“So it was good to get home that night and watch Match of the Day and myself playing in the game," he added.
Petterson, now 49, is goalkeeper coach at Bali United.
