Wednesday Players We Thought Were Going To Be World Beaters.

Recommended Posts

Lucas Joao. Jury still out but can see him featuring in this thread in 5 years time I'm afraid. 

 

Hopefully my lack of football knowledge will be exposed once more.

Ziggi Jonsson. Looked like he had it all at such a young age. Think Souness finished his career. 

Yes Siggi had that special talent of finding time on the ball.Think his slight frame maybe left him open to rougher treatment from lesser talented players. We did though get a fee from Arsenal for him and sadly he was badly injured there.

Wim Fvvcking Jonk

 

He joined us when his stock was exceptionally high. What a disastrous signing he was.

Definitley time for him to front up. Has the ability as international caps show. Sometimes wonder how badly he wants it.

Ozzy would be mine, I see him on the ball before the game from time to time and he looks decent. Never even makes the squad though... what's the point him even being here. Stealing a wage

Slightly different criteria here he was supposedly a world beater when he joined us after a great world cup. Turned out to be one of the biggest flops in Wednesday's history.

Not so much with us, although he flattered to deceive when he was here, but Simon Stainrod  He had a good skill set, but seemed to cruise through games, never getting out of second gear

Nuhiu :-) didn’t he score on his debut against QPR? Not seen anywhere near enough of that since.

I once turned to my mate as we nestled in the South Stand and predicted that Sean McAllister would go on to be a Premier League footballer one day.

 

I've not done pre-match shots of absinthe since.

 

:ghoulguy:

 

Currently playing for non league Chester I believe after being released by Grimsby.

Van aken stands out for me in recent times. Was at Cardiff for his debut and he looked a class above

If you'd told me that as I descended into my absinthe portal, I'd have thought you were mad.

 

For one green-tinged Hillsborough afternoon, he was the second coming of Zidane.

Ante Mirocevic had a brilliant debut but never reached those heights again

Chris Bart-Williams.

Didn't we buy him from Leyton Orient for about 250k and sell him to Forest for about £3m fixed by tribunal.

Hardly a flop.

I remember his hattrick in a 5-2 v Southampton.  Week later, he was left out of the league cup final side which lost 2-1 to Arsenal.

History might have been rewritten if Trev had picked him.

Never said he was...:dry:

 

Lad had a half decent career...just never turned into the world beater I thought he would as per the OP.

He'd played against Southampton as a striker precisely because we were resting players for the final, where we played pretty much our strongest side. Even Hirst only made the bench. Who would you have left out? Warhurst? Sheridan? Waddle?

Jon Shaw.

Not sure I ever thought he'd be a world beater, but certainly good enough to be a regular for us. I remember a cracking goal from the edge of the area, kop end. Then he disappeared.
