    That’s true normally but that one game with Rogic not really being fit he shouldn’t have been on the park he took about half an hour to run 10 yards.

    Don’t think Hartson was all that slow for a big guy.

    He's right though. Don't remember him being that slow at all for his frame..

    He was quicker than Sutton..

    Didn’t see he was Mo Farrah but he wasn’t overly slow over a short distance when he was at his peak with us

    Aye over the first 10 yards he had enough acceleration, but his overall pace wasn't fast at all.

    Probably JVoH? He never really was needed to run at defenses, though.

    Josh thompson without doubt. The fact he made rogne look quick said it all.

    In fact i will go futher, kris commons would beat him over 100m sprint, with Mandy Dingle on his back.

    Most of my go-to names were already mentioned (Rogne, Rasmussen, etc), and Mulgrew was/is well slower than, for instance JVOH (apart from his last season with us) or one or two other names listed here.
