The Markovic thread got me thinking .. well Jarzinho did, who is the worst player we have ever signed?

Diouf is my choice

...two others are in critical condition. When, after having heard the explosion from their practice facility, they ran into the fire to help get people out. Ran into the fire.

Jimmy Carter. Will never forget this.


http://www.lfchistor...yer/Profile/457


Winger Carter earned himself a good reputation at Millwall after earlier spells with Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers. He was part of the Lions' squad who gained promotion into top division for the first time in the south-east London club's history in 1988. After signing for Kenny Dalglish on 10 January 1991 he went straight into the team for a League match at Aston Villa two days later. The Guardian commented on his performance in his second match against Wimbledon that he was "like a Millwall player masquerading in a Liverpool shirt" and unfortunately for Carter his move didn't work out. By the time Dalglish left Anfield, only six weeks after Carter's arrival, he had lost his place in the starting line-up. Carter only made eight appearances; five under Dalglish and three under his successor, Graeme Souness.

It was clear that Souness didn't rate the 25-year-old Londoner highly exemplified by when he substituted Carter at Stamford Bridge after he had come on as a substitute earlier in the game. Souness recouped over half of the purchase price when Arsenal paid £500,000 to take Carter back to London in October 1991. Carter spent over three years at Highbury but only played 30 matches and was twice loaned out to Oxford United before making a permanent move to Portsmouth in Football League One in 1995. Three years, 80 games and six goals later he was back at Millwall but his second spell with the club was nowhere near as successful as his first. At the end of the 1998/99 season he had to retire as a player at the age of 33 because of a serious back injury. He now works as a matchday host for Millwall.

Do you not think his charm made up for his lack of footballing ability?

Benteke because it was the most nonsensical transfer. We've bought worst players but he had zero chemistry with any of our players and couldn't have been less suited to our football. Plus he was fucking expensive.

Andy Carroll.

 

£35m when £35m was £35m.

 

He obviously had some limited strengths, but only if your side plays like Millwall in 1988.

It depends on te perspective. Aquilani was the worst deal of recent years, on a par with Marković, the worst player maybe Jovanović or Degen. Diao. Competition is unbelievably tough. .

I'm really liking what he's giving us right now. If it continues then soon people will be talking about the 'SASAS'.

Queued for hours to get David Morrisey's autograph with my nephew on Bold St, before we got to him he had to shoot off.








Oh and as a player Sean Dundee, as for value, Carroll.

Benteke takes the most moronic signing crown.  A player who was never going to fit for massive money but what you expect when you've a shit manager and a team of scouts whose idea of working together is both getting to pick a player, thankfully Palace give us a huge sum for the lump and the scout's man is quality.

Andy Carroll is still the stand out one for me, it still pains me to think about it. Markovic, Downing and Aquilani although the latter is a talented player are up there too.
