Wednesday Players You Liked That Turner Out to be Guff

Recommended Posts

Rodri's a decent shout, I think we all thought he was going to be a decent signing. Probably didn't help being in a newly promoted team that didn't have much confidence around it.

Michele Di Piedi - scored some great goals (Sunderland, Norwich, Birmingham) but couldn't find any consistency probably to lack of ability rather than effort.

Regi Blinker - spectacular debut at Villa then looked brilliant for those first four games in 96, then that Udinese transfer malarkey killed his momentum.

 

Jim Magilton - Always liked him at Southampton, never cut it for us.

 

Andy Hinchcliffe - over the moon when we signed him, genuine quality but was never fit.

 

Giles Coke - Really wanted him to do well, had talent, maybe just wrong place, wrong time.

 

Stevie May - See Giles Coke.

Daniel Jones

 

Remember watching him for Bristol Rovers in league one and when Irvine signed him, I was delighted - thinking he'd be a perfect replacement or competition for Spurr at the left back role. He was excellent for Bristol Rovers during his loan spell in the season we were relegated from the championship

 

Turned out to be an awful player. 

 

Although it didn't help that he had Alan Irvine managing him, and also Gary Teale ahead of him in the left wing spot.

Jonk... I liked him, so bol.locks to you all. I had him on back of the yellow/blue/white away shirt. 

 

 

So did I. And I stopped wearing it in public about a month into the 98-99 season!

Jordan Rhodes.

Didn't particularly like him but £10 million spent, goal on debut, then not much else!

Ironically, I always joked that the goals would dry-up if he played for Wednesday :duntmatter:

Simon Donnelly for me.

I'll agree with that one, remember watching him when we'd been banned from Europe and they used to show celtic n rangers on BBC midweek. 

 

Playing at celtic and looked real quality. 

Was going to be the "New hope" 

The new Kenny Dalglish! 

 

We sign him and what happens...? 

He turns into. 

Ken'ny run, ken'ny shoot, Kenny control a ball lol

Ooh where do we begin I'll avoid the usual DeBilde, yonk, jeffers, potters etc?? 

How about Richard Cresswell, we signed him for £1million from York, England under 21 International tall good amount of pace seemed an intelligent and started off really well, then just petered out. Think Taylor took him to Leicester and ended up at Leeds and the blunts among about 20 other clubs lol

 

Guy Branston & Ashley Westwood, both came highly rated, Branston was a tall strong ball playing cb and Westwood a pretty quick cb. 

Thought we'd signed a really good cb partnership, about mid 20's should have complemented each other really well. 

They were both bloody awful and struggled down in the pub league too.

Clinton Morrison who could score for everybody except us.

 

Much more accomplished at imitating windmills than playing football.

I've mentioned this on here before, but 

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.

I really can't explain how or indeed why the swear filter did that. 

Kenny lunt. 

Lunt was one of those, like James O'conner Always ruined us and looked class when he played against us.

Came here and never hit those same heights.
