What we think: Signed by Martin O'Neill in the summer of 1991, the player later nicknamed 'Psycho', became an immediate regular in the side. Who will forget the insane celebration at the FA Trophy Final in 1993 after he scored after just 3 minutes? His 'Psycho' tag was confirmed during the debut Football League campaign of 1993/94 when a multiple X challenge against Doncaster in September 1993 resulted in a red card and an immediate ban by Martin O'Neill. However, in typical Cousins style his comeback game against Coventry brought another stunning goal and all was forgiven. The following season he won the Player of the Season award but under Manager's Alan Smith and John Gregory he didn't seem to fit in. Returned to favour under Neil Smillie in 1998/99 and although he missed the tail end of that season through injury, won the Player of the Season once again. He fought his way back into the First Team and enjoyed another memorable season in 2000/2001. Awarded a testimonial in 2001/2002 but sadly released at the end of the season by Lawrie Sanchez and eventually joined Aldershot in June 2002.
Following his departure, Cousins told the Bucks Free Press""It was difficult walking out after 11 years. Even though I was expecting it, I was choked up and I struggled to get my words out afterwards. Wycombe Wanderers has been a big and fantastic part of my life. There can't be many lower league footballers that get to Wembley, win two successive promotions and play in an FA Cup semi-final."
