Yes Kasnic and Uchechi were both highlighted by Megson as players brought in by Milan, not him, neither of whom Megson wanted or rated as competent footballers. Turned out he was 100% correct and the two players were just brought in by MM to make the numbers up. Anybody know who advised MM on these signings? I remember asking the big bloke that ran the fan's forum meetings with the club (ex West Ham director involved with Tevez signing), who was responsible for signing players when we had no scouts and he told us that everybody at the club had contacts in the game and that they all came up with possible signings, which was when our loan player signings looked very dodgy for the first time ever, a very dodgy way of dealing that still goes on now, with no-one publicly paid by the club being given the full credit that should be rewarded for. Preferably with the sack, loss of payments and back payments to the club.

On occasions, an agent will have a lot of quality players on the books. To position the club at the front of the queue, often a club has to take some dross from the same agent to get to the good players. It was this issue that led Keegan to quit Newcastle second time round. 
 

It may be  a few of those very  early signings in the DC era  under Gray were ones we took on to get access to better players like Joao, FF. that is pure guess work I should add .

It’s murky football. I imagine it will happen at most clubs.

I remember him scoring a cracking goal against Villa (I think).

Yes, I think was his debut in the last home game of the season. I don't remember much about him after that.

He was rubbish. Think he ended up at one of the local non league sides either Stocksbridge or Sheffield fc.

Oddly enough signed for Sheffield FC 3 times in 2009, 2010 & 2011. Interspaced with Ilkeston and Worksop town

Looked through the thread and not seen mentioned.
 

Adedeji Oshilaja - came on loan from Cardiff and had a weird habit of almost kneeling down to control the ball with his chest. Now forming a decent career at Charlton

 

Adam Davies - the one that got away tbh. Signed on a free from Everton’s academy and was on the bench a bunch of times as back up to Kirkland over a two year period but never made an appearance in the end. Released him and Barnsley took him on. Made nearly 200 apps for them before going onto Stoke for free. Very highly rated and just about hitting his peak - also played internationally for Wales.
 

Damian Martinez  - more commonly known now as Emiliano Martinez. We had him on loan from Arsenal in 2013 and he made a handful of appearances for us. Nothing spectacular. Loan spells kept happening but he FINALLY broke into arsenals first 11 and earned a move to Villa where he’s thriving as one of the leagues best keepers. Who’d have thought it?

I find it difficult to believe that if you enquire after one player you want, you have to take on another that you do not.
