John Beswetherick hands down.

 

Id only disagree with a couple on your list... Cobian looked good in his few games (bar the last one). Haslam was a decent footballer was just in at the wrong time. Was a CH too really. Hills was decent at the time we had him and I didn't mind Hendon. Blondeau should have been class but wasn't. Atherton should be in that list he was rubbish in the premier league era.

 

Briscoe should be in the other list but bar that I agree with the good, Nillsson was a class apart. Petrescu was very good.

Blondeau, was stunned when watched him in his 1st game for us. He got turned inside out looked like he had never played professional football. French international etc etc and we unearthed the only one at the time who was inept.

 

He was absolutely appalling in that pre-season tour that year - supposed premiership quality as you say being completely humiliated away at Exeter - on a par with Beswethericks last game for us. At least JB was only division 4 player of the season when we signed him unlike the French 'international'....

Showing my age a bit but I remember Viv Anderson was awful at full back for us when we first signed him to say he was an experienced international.

He was. It was an age thing though. He'd lost his pace. You can't play full back in the head like you can at centre half. He was brilliant at centre half for us. Think his debut was hull away, which he played full back. He was brought in to cover Roland Nilsson when he broke his leg. Anderson was awful that day. We found a winner trying out John Harkes at right back through this.
