Who would you say is the worst player we have had?

Recommended Posts

Worst players I've ever seen play more than a few matches for us are Mark Fotheringham, Julien Brellier, Andy Hughes and Chris Killen. Time has mercifully completely erased pretty much all memory I have of the Grant-Roeder era so I can't picture exactly why but I remember thinking those players were shocking every time I saw them. Worst two I've ever seen live though were Theoklitos and Whaley but I agree only playing one game doesn't count

Even in my youth I could tell that Paddy Boyle (loan from everton) was absolutely awful.

Marley Watkins. Woeful player, receiving over £1m pounds for him was a stroke of genius.

In terms of sheer lack of talent, Brellier or Simon Whalley.

In terms of ability vs spend/anticipation then Ricky, Naismith or Wildschutt

Jarrett. Fotheringham. Sheron. Watkins. Pretty much 90% of players signed during the Grant/Roeder/Gunn era.

Just too many to pick from.

Chris Brown usually gets my vote for this question. One goal in 24 games if I'm not mistaken, and he very rarely even got himself in the position to miss chances. It was like playing with ten. 

Surely Strihavka beats Brown? His only goal from a corner where Dublin practically dragged him into position

Pound for pound it has to be Ricky Van Wolfswinkel.

Can't agree with that! Was never going to happen for him here in that he just was'nt cut out to be main striker on his own in a Hughton style team. Would have been great in a Farke team.

Completely agree, he was completely useless.

Goran Maric was another one on the 'what did we see in this guy' list

Quite a few to choose from, especially in the mid to late 2000s, but I'm going to go a tad later than that and throw Kyle Lafferty into the mix.

Fair points although I am not certain about the second one. Maybe he should go in a worst purchase post instead?? Same as Naismith.

Seems harsh on poor Omar- wasn't his fault Roeder signed him.

Agree with this, at least in recent years. I still have no idea what position was meant to be his best (other than nowhere near the pitch).

Random google just led me to discover that he's the grandson of this noted Poet.  Don't imagine many other footballers have that in their family history!

And yes, he was terrible for us.
