One of the best target men in Premier League history, big Dion Dublin was a physical presence that roughed up many a defender on his way to netting over 100 goals in the EPL.
Dublin was groomed in the Norwich City youth academy as a central defender, and was actually signed by Cambridge United as a defender in 1988. Few would have believed what a great goal scorer 'Big Dion' would go on to be back then.
Dublin had fantastic success in the lower league with Cambridge and earned his Premier League break with a million-pound move to Manchester United in 1992.
Dublin got his Man U career off to a good start with a late winning goal against Southampton, but broke his leg soon after and missed a sizable chunk of time. Dublin received a medal for United's Premier League win in 1992-1993, but his impact was minimal.
By the time he recovered from his injury, Mark Hughes and Eric Cantona were established as United's first-choice strike partnership, and Dublin moved to Coventry City.
Rather than the beginning of a spiral downwards, the move to Coventry sparked a career resurgence for Dublin, and he went on to become one of the club's greatest players ever.
Dublin scored 62 EPL goals for Coventry, and many of them earned points that would prove invaluable in tight relegation battles that the club survived.
Dublin won the Golden Boot during the 1997/1998 season, an achievement that is not easy when you are playing in a mid-table side.
What makes Dublin's career of goal scoring more impressive is that his career totals include games played in central defense.
Another frightening thought, is as good a forward as Dublin was, many judges believe he would have been an even better defender.
The video shows a compilation of Coventry goals from the 1990's, a treat for any Sky Blues fans reading. The first two goals give an idea of the physical presence, aerial ability and good touch that Dublin possessed.
MLS fans watching the video may also recognise a younger, more spritely Darren Huckerby.
