Worst Norwich players you've ever seen?

Recommended Posts

Came here to mention Omar Koroma.

All things considered, it's probably Naismith.

For money alone and ego, Naismith by a country mile.....at least most of the others didn’t cost our club close to 20 million pounds in fees and wages for an absolutely garbage attitude. I’d love to have a formula for cost of each poor player per minute played.

Steve Walsh. We conceded 5 at home to a league 2 Bradford on his debut I believe. And then another 3/4 on his league debut. Absolute shocker! 

100%

The formula might be something like cost of player divided by minutes played

Those of a certain age cannot possibly have forgotten Drazen Muzinic. The second coming according to John Bond but in 58 years of supporting City never ever have I seen such an awful 'footballer'. His strengths? None. His weaknesses? How long have you got!

Yes but without knowing how much we paid, agent fees, wages, bonuses, loan fees for loaning them out, we’ll never get a real value!

Was sent this the other day by a friend that supports Everton  . It's no wonder we bought him, WTF happened? I was so pleased we'd got him . Ended up just wishing  he'd  go.

The first name that springs to mind is Chris Brown. 24 games and one goal if I'm not mistaken, and then we sold him for a profit, somehow...

Yes, he wasn’t all that but to be fair could’ve been distracted filming his Sunderland teammates with that 16 year old girl.

Or shooting paintballs at pedestrians from his car.

A lot of our flops have had trouble with the law. Maybe there's a pattern emerging?

Keith Scott for me. I remember telling tale this before on here.

 

I was at a Birmingham v City game with my Spurs supporting friend.

Scott was CF.

 

My friend said that number 9 (?) looks useful.

 

I replied that he was a carthorse of monstrous proportions.

 

The **** only popped up with a headed goal which I think may have won the game.

 

He didn't score many though.

Still in better shape than John Hartson, who is conspicuous by his absence from this thread.

Hartson came on at half time and changed a game against the Binners. I think it was the one that we were 2 down to Alan Lee . That was good enough to keep him well clear of the worst . He was a big old unit in those days .

Laurie Sheffield and Simon Tracey - after Theo of course!

No, I won't have that about Laurie Sheffield - the man scored a hat trick on his debut! I'll give you Simon Tracey though.

And I will add.....Jim Blair.

Didn't we have Kevin Scott in defence at the same time, just to confuse matters?

Kevin was ok from what I remember, ageing and slow but not terrible.

5 goals in 25. Not our worst.

Jim Blair and another Scottish forward in the early 80's whose name escapes me 

Off the top of my head, the only one I can think of is Ross Jack, but he scored in 7 consecutive games, so perhaps it's not him?

Loads of players I can think of including:

 Derveld 

de Waard

Yves de Blasiis

Luciano Becchio - surprised no one has mentioned him yet. Did brilliantly for Leeds, we signed him and the only goal he scored for us was in a pre-season friendly!

I reckon Brian McGovern, Carl Robinson, and Andy Hughes all deserve a shout. Possibly van Wolfswinkel, although there has been a lot of question over the years that Hughton’s defensive style of play didn’t suit him 

Think it’s a bit harsh to criticise Theoklitos as he was only starting to get used to UK football and never got to make another first team appearance for us. Also think he probably wasn’t to blame for every goal we conceded in that record defeat to Colchester, surely the defence was at fault for some?

Hard to choose from some of the dross the Grant/Roeder/Gunn combo bought into the club.

Simon Whalley was one I was excited about but turned out to be utter dross.

So many blinders here, Kieran Gibbs at right mid, John Hartson, Mark Fotheringham.. could go on

His name was Davie Robb. Absolutely awful

There was a lot of dross, but to be fair...

Roeder bought Wes

Gunn bought Holt

If only we had those two again!

Walked into the break-out room at Air Azores in Lisbon. Had my Norwich hoodie on. 

Sustained laughter....

Hows it going with RvW?

i can’t believe the wazzok is still playing - well some idiot is paying him to attend ‘Swiss Super League’ club Basil. 

10m€ plus 2m€ bonuses

The ‘scout’ who spotted RvW is either a gifted Con Man or  registered as blind

Do you think there's a WhatsApp group or Forum somewhere where the players post the worst Norwich fans they've ever seen?

Who would make that list from here?

Nope !!! They don’t stay long enough - I think Malky might pick me though! Or Ewan when I told him to ‘Get on yer Bike’ from the Directors box at Crystal Palace.
