2000-01 was very much a stop-start season for Derby County's Georgian international play maker. Never fully match-fit having undergone a hernia operation during the close season and then suffered various injuries during the campaign, his appearances were mostly from the substitute's bench - a frustrating situation both for the player and the fans who regard him as the most creative player at the club.

Blessed with a vision for the killer pass, he can also conjure up goals and goalscoring situations from virtually nothing. A season-long fight against relegation was not necessarily the best of stages for his individual talents and it was not until the very last few matches that he played a regular role in his preferred position just behind the front two strikers.
