Which players did we get the best out of?


Recommended Posts

I was thinking back to 1990/91 as I often do. We had some good players but also got the very best out of some relatively unknown players.

 

Since then we have not seemed to get the best out of many players. Arguably many players have underachieved.

Phil King for definite. Shirtliffe, Sheridan, Palmer, Pearson....the list goes on with players from that era. Since, I'm struggling. We seem to buy and sell at the wrong time, consistently.

Going back a bit, but I would say,

 

Terry Curran

Lee Chapman ( he did well after, but I think we really kick started his career again)

Gary Shelton

Lawrie Madden

Phil King

Probably the best way to view this is to look at players when they leave our club 

Do they disappear into anonymous oblivion?

If so they are your answer

For most of the 11/12 and 04/05 teams (with a few notable exceptions like Brunt, Whelan and Antonio), it was the biggest and best achievement of their careers, showed what can be done by an organised team with good spirit and managers who understand what is required at the club

Carbone was a bit of a journeyman who never scored more than 7 league goals for all his other clubs.*

Edit - Apart from Bradford, where he got 10 in 42 games, so hardly much better
