I’d love us to sign a player that could get us out of our seats

Recommended Posts

Who have we signed since Waddle that could get us out of our seats regularly by beating a man? I can only place JJ as that type of player and we all know that he didn’t have the end product but I’d take another JJ anytime if it meant we got a fair bit of excitement each game. 
 

Are there any players around that can dribble the ball and if so, could we afford to buy them?

FF to a certain extent but he's more a tenacious street fighter / unpredictable brilliance rather than a dribbler and someone who beats his man consistently.

It seems like a dying art unfortunately and it's what I love most about football, the players that do things that get people on the edge of their seats and get replayed on videos decades later.

I can't think of any to be honest.. But it is 2am in the morning!

Antonio.

 

Even Helan could regularly beat his man.

Some may say Nuhiu gets them off their seats (when he comes on late in the game) for the exit  :biggrin:

Looking at the last few games we have a full squad that gets the crowd off their seats........and heading for the exits.

Di Canio, Carbone, Blinker (maybe for 5 games), and that’s it

Yeah, the only problem with Hėlan was that he often forgot to take the ball with him!

 

Drenthe's probably the best dribbler we've had in recent years.

Forestieri? Not so much recently, but in that first season when we played fast attacking football. That’s the thing, there isn’t room to accommodate such a player, when our sole attacking ploy is to launch it up to Fletcher Its not the style of play that is likely to encourage any player who wants to entertain

Bothroyd usually got me out of my seat. Infact, he rarely got me in it.

Think youve forgotten Antonio what a gem he was. Pace and power, in reality we were just a stepping stone but was great while he was here.

Could empty a ground that clown. Ego 10 times bigger than his talent. Worst player I have seen in the shirt.(not ability wise but total lack of effort).

On the same theme . Peter Feeley got supporters out of there seats-- and walk out . God he was awful , Colin West was Harry Kane by comparison.

During some really bad times, JJ was a shining light.

We have plenty. Just out of our seats for wrong reasons.

Over the time I have watched Wednesday.

Terry Curran

Willie Henderson

Paulo Di Canio

Benito Carbone

Chris Waddle

Jermaine Johnson

Those are the players that when they received the ball you were on the edge of your seat anticipating something special could happen. Its called flair.
