Worst 10 Sheffield Wednesday players of all time

Recommended Posts

Worst on ability was Chris adamson. Bought purely as back up but he lacked every basic component to be a goalkeeper . 
 

disappointing would be abdi . Big money , decent reputation . Shame the muppets running the club are incapable of spotting a crock when they see one .

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.

 

You were always going to be disappointed if you were expecting him to replicate his 90's form for Holland with us. By the 1998 World Cup his international career was coming to an end, he was 32 years old and for the Dutch he had Bergkamp and Overmars to make the play for, not quite the same when you are looking to Booth and De Bilde for forward movement! 

He did OK in his first season then injuries took their toll, ridiculous but not his fault that someone at the club agreed to pay him healthy bonus fees even when he wasn't available for selection.

Tidman was worse for me but Adamson was pretty poor. We had some bad keepers around that time. Lucas was steady but a bit injury prone and when he was out injured during the 2004-05 season the likes of Adamson and Gallagher who we got on loan were not up to it. Brad Jones followed not long after, how he ended up at Liverpool I'll never know.

Since this is an old thread, it is good we have a new contender in the wretched Da Cruz. An astonishingly poor footballer who has no idea where to run whilst on a pitch. I maintain there isn’t a poorer player in any squad in this league and possibly the league below as well.

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.

 

 

Odd, I remember Alexandersson scoring 2 in that game.

Phil Henson - Taught me from a young age that watching Wednesday was often about making your own entertainment. Laughing at his ineptitude helped pass the time.

Guy Branston - Proof if ever it were needed that you should never give up on your dreams. A psychotically poor footballer yet a professional one nonetheless. An inspiration to me to never give up on my dream to be an astronaut (even though I am 49 years of age). Reach for the stars Guy. 


Phil Henson must have hated Saturdays. An hour and a half every week being slagged off by 10,000 people. He must have had PTSD when he left us.

Ability wise Guy Branston

Attitude Bothroyd

 

Value for money Abdi 

 

Arguably too many candidates to mention in the last 20 years though

Does anybody remember the game where Beswetherick was sat towards the bottom of the South stand Kop end, from memory he was sat by himself and I think it was the game against the blunts ( Owusu game)

So people reckon Bothroyd has a worse attitude than Leon Clarke?

Nope, can't be possible.

Bothroyd made Leon Clarke look like a choir boy in comparison. Without doubt the biggest toilet ever to pull on the Blue and White stripes.

Brad Jones a truly awful keeper who somehow has played for various premier league sides. The mind does really boggle at this.

Imagine a XI of the worst ever Wednesday players, playing against the current lot? :st2:

Even our current lot might stand a chance of winning a game! lol

Though saying that it would probably end up a draw.

 

Who would Bothroyd and Sidibe play for?

The Sideboard was without doubt the most immobile player I have ever seen on a proffesional football pitch. Forgive him everything though for the crucial winner against Bolton that helped us stay up in a very tight season. Unlike Bothroyd he tried but his body just couldn't do it.

You're right my mistake, Jonk only scored 1. My memory's not so good.

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 

Boyd was bloody awful wasnt he. For years the gypo tore us apart then turned to Out of date tripe when he signed

I think we've got worse in our squad and starting regularly in the first 11.
