The real pantomime villains in my time are Jeffers, Lunt, Beswetherick, Bothroyd. Only other one is Fox who has turned it round to his credit.

 

Fore me personally it's Jimmy Smith, the Chelsea loanee. Genuinely cannot put to words how angry I was when he got sent off at St Andrew's. 

 

If we're including current players though it's easily Palmer the soft shyte, bottling challenges and headers for 10 years now :angry:

Darren Potter

 

Heard a few ex pros/teammates say recently that he had bags of ability, but only wanted to pass back and sideways in games. It just isn’t what you pay to watch as a fan. 

 

Interestingly, Darren Purse named him and Michael Gray as the big characters of the dressing room when he arrived. Shame his performances on the pitch showed all the character of a wet fart

Wim Jonk. I was young, and put his name on the back of that strange yellow away kit we launched that year. It didn't take long for me to be too embarrassed to wear the shirt in public!

 

Quality world cup player, only 4 letters, what could go wrong? 

 

lol

Trevor Phillips of Rotherham was a player I admired, so why the hell did we buy Steve Downes ? Holsgrove too, he despised Swann for his status as the senior and tried at evert turn to undermine him. Never worked at Swann went on to a few good seasons at Bury then lead (Macclesfield ?) to Wembley cup win.

I got Hinchcliffe on the back of mine if you mean that yellow, blue and white shirt. In hindsight I should have gone for Alexanderson on the back of it.

Moneybagger! 

 

Do you recall how much they charged for each letter? Was it 2 quid?

Dont think it was that much or like you I would have went for Jonk.

 

Maybe a fiver a big number then a quid a letter sounds about right. 

 

Thinking about it he was number 20 Hinchcliffe wasn't he. That's bloody expensive still.

Must have got some good pocket money that week.

This thread just highlights the fact we've had some right rubbish play for the club since around 1998.

 

Totally depressing.

 

Going back to the Coronavirus thread to cheer myself up!! 😂😂😂.

Peter Atherton for me. Still to this day don't know how he played that many games. Also Paul mclaren. Especially when he got his self sent off and we lost 5 nil, I think.

Phil Henson    hated  that fool   no idea why  I was only 10 at  the time

Henson.jpg

I remember him playing for Rotherham at Hillsborough around 1981. He fluffed a chance at the kop end and almost to a man the whole kop was singing "F*ck off Henson, F*ck off Henson"

I can still see the look of amazement on his face as he gazed up at the crowd.

Hate is a very strong word...................i strongly disliked ;

 

John Holsgrove

Colin West

Mark Pembridge

Darren Wood

Ian Cranson

Simon Coleman

Giles De Bilde

Darren Purse

Jay Bothroyd

 

And there is a special dark corner for Peter Atherton and Ian Nolan...........their signings epitomised the end of the great era........they were lauded by a sizeable section of our fanbase   (probably the same ones that liked Dave Jones or defend Pelupessy)    and couldnt wait to jump ship once we were relegated.

Only player in a Wednesday shirt I have truly disliked as a player and a person was Slothroyd. A waste of human skin.:bullen:

Nigel Worthington. He was just not good. Plus he looked more like a church organist than a professional footballer.

bit harsh on Atherton , his contract was up and I doubt the club having been relegated could give him a new one on the same terms …...I think he did the club a favour as they were desperate to cut the wage bill with contracted crap like jonk,de bilde, rudi,hinchcliffe ,the 2 scots and many others content to see out there prem contracts dossing in the 2nd division .
