Recommended Posts

Cant believe that Kenny Brannigan isnt getting more recognition for being utterly gash.

You'd be hard pushed to find a worst player than Kim Olsen  he looked like he'd never played football in his life.

 

True, although by falling over like a tree to win penalties on two separate occasions he escaped the fate of 0 goals, 0 assists Barry Corr.

 

7 starts + 5 sub appearances, 0 goals, 3 assists.

Chris Turnip went on record as saying he had the potential to be the next David Hirst.

Oh how I laughed.

Depends how you’re judging these... if it’s based on what we paid for them, what they were earning and what they delivered Jordan Rhodes, Almen Abdi, George Boyd, Francis Jeffers and Andy Sinton would all be in there.

 

If it’s just the geniune worst players it’s players like Enoch Showumni, Ola Tidman, Chris Adamson, Guy Branston, Ian Hendon, Danny Maddix and Kim Olsen but I don’t like being too critical of the lads who turned out for us in league one

I remember comparisons being made with Kennett Anderson, a Swedish striker who helped his nation to the World Cup semi-finals in 1994.

 

They were the same height and that's about it.

The worst forward I have seen in a Wednesday shirt is the one and only Peter Feeley!

Peter Feeley is without doubt the worst player I have witnessed in over 50 years watching Wednesday. Closely followed by Fred Maciver.

We seem to have done pretty well for goalkeepers for quite a few years now.

 

Keiran Westwood

Chris Kirkland

Nicky Weaver

Lee Grant

Mark Crossley

David Lucas

 

It's interesting that only six first choice keepers take us all the way back to 2004. It's been a solid position. 

 

We've produced a few decent kids in that time too - Richard O'Donnell has ended up with a decent career in the football league, and Adam Davies has a decent career at Barnsley. 

 

So many, worst is Beswetherwick (his name sounds like the next village to Camberwick Green) and Blondeau.

 

Most disappointed in was Jonk, thought we had a world class player and excited to go to watch him but did nothing, didn't move or pass the ball except backward or sideways.

I dont know anyone could include Wim Jonk in the 10 worst.

 

He was a good player, you don't play for Ajax, Inter Milan and the Dutch national team if you're  not.

 

We signed him when he was nearly 32, so in the twilight of his career. When we were in the 2nd division he was 34.

 

I remember him having a cracking game and scoring 2 v Man. Utd in a 3-1 win at Hillsborough.

 

In fact for a midfielder he had a good scoring record in some of Europes top leagues, averaging a goal every 5 games in his career.

 

I can think of plenty since him who have been worse.

 

Here are 20+ foreign players since Wim Jonk was here who have IMO been worse.

There have also been many more who I have left out that only played a few games.

 

 

Modou Sougou

Urby Emanuelson

Filipe Melo

Marco Matias

Juan Cobian

Petter Rudi

Gilles De Bilde

Gerald Siibon

Pablo Bonvin

Michele Di Piedi

Trond Soltvedt

Con Blatsis

Drissa Diallo

Yoann Folly

Nsumbu-Ndungu

Etienne Esajas

Frank Songolo

Bartotsz Slusarski

Nejc Pecnik

Jeremy Helan

Sergiu Bus

Kamil Zayatte

Claude Dielna

Marnick Vermijl

Joost Van Aken

Almen Abdi

Atdhe Nuhiu :ph34r:

 

Edit ..I liked Soldvedt, thought he did well for us.

Darren Purse He tried so hard but his signing and the fallout relegated us.

Jeffers Our answer to James Beattie. Yeah that happened.

Bothroyd. I can cope with a player trying and failing HE NEVER TRIED.

absolutely not but he was one of the most disappointing coz with his pedigree he should have had a far greater influence on the team . …..his last big contract and he saw it thru to the bitter end without it seemed breaking sweat .

I suppose so, though he was nearly 32 when he signed and as you say his last big contract.

 

His first season was reasonable, played in nearly all the games, and we beat Man.Utd, Liverpool, Everton, Arsenal and Tottenham.

 

Second season was obviously relegation.

Though he was far from the worst player in that team, we De Bilde and Sibon up front.

 

After relegation he played the first 2 games in division 1 then that was it.

I cant remember what happened, was he injured or not picked?

Said disapointed not worst. Thought he was world class when saw him in that Dutch team, just didn't live up to expectations for us.

Jonk was injured but you never got the impression he was busting a gut to get back.

Think manager at the time Paul Jewel said he was still on first team bonuses even though he hadn't seen him for 3 months.

Jonk was obviously a class player. A midfield general that had a better career then John Sheridan if you look at his record but you never got the impression he was that bothered at Wednesday. One last big contract basically.
