Jordan Rhodes, he'd score 90 a season if only we were good enough to play to his strengths and set him up with loads of open goals every game.

 

 

People said the same about Francis Jeffers

Maybe a bit controversial, but Royston Drenthe. He was a class above anything we had, can tell why he played at the highest level. Got the feeling he just didn't apply himself as much as he could. 

 

Anthony Gardener was class, just injuries took a massive toll on him, one of my favourite players from recent years.

 

This'd be a lot easier if we said those that waint good enough for us.

Nobody is too good for us ffs.

 

Yes there have been a number of players too good to play for us over the years

 

Not too good to play for Sheffield Wednesday but in terms of ability too good compared to the rest of the squad at that time

 

There is a difference

Gerald Sibon -  would have been pure dynamite with a better team around him
You could  see the absolute resignation in his play every time a team mate messed up

 

What you saw as resignation, I saw as a player that was clearly taking the proverbial and not interested in playing for us, a disgrace of a player!

Some good shouts

 

Antonio definitely - you only have to look at the player he is today

 

Yes, I can remember that keeper. Iain Turner

 

That's him - he was quality, then he went back to Everton and rotted and then did nothing, shame really. Should've built a career in the lower leagues and then gone back up.

100's of players have the ability.. it's how they use the ability..  Joao has it in abundance.. was he too good for us no.

non of the players mentioned bar Di Canio went onto better things.. that says it all.

I remember one game where Di Canio and Carbone were playing either side of Andy Booth.

I dont know if they were too good for us but they were too good for him.

After about 20 minutes of the ball going to Booth and not coming back their arms were waving like windmills, Paulo was moaning 'WHY.... WHY?' at the bench. Shaking his head and then he didn't pass another ball all game.
