Ashley Era - Worst 11


54
 Share

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking about this the last few days, and I was just wondering what people would say is the worst 11 in the Ashley era?

 

Only rule is that they have to have played at least 5 games for the club. I'd probably go with something like:

 

Jak Alnwick

 

Geremi

Sol Campbell

Cacapa

 

Cabella

Saivet

Colback

Obertan

 

Riviere

Xisco

L De Jong

Think there is a player somewhere in there with Saivet.

 

Controversial but Thauvin did less than Obertan for us. Even more controversial I think Obertan would look an ok player without any crowds. Seemed to suffer from stage fright which is never ideal when you are a professional footballer :lol:

Too difficult to pick a worst. There's been some grim line ups under Ashley. Then again I almost cried looking at the line up against Monaco in the Uefa Cup in 97/98....Literally a 6-4-0 and predictably humped.

 

Not an Ashley lineup, but Roeder had some grim choices to make a team out of...Ramage, Huntingdon, Bramble...eurgh

 

It's a wonder it took so long for us to be relegated

Sels

 

Gamez

Hall

Kinshivilli

Anita

 

Geremi

Colback

Smith

Pancrate

 

Kuqi

Rivière

 

 

Ah, the signings that make Rafa a shit manager.

 

Still don't understand the point in either of those signings tbh.

 

Don’t think they made him a bad manager but Sels was the biggest fish out of water I’d ever seen and Rafa quickly rectified this.

 

Then I couldn’t think of a bad left back

From what I recall, Sels was actually a Carr purchase, and had a bit of pedigree before joining, obviously just didn't work.

 

And Gamez I always thought he was alright when he played, and Rafa said he bought him in as an experienced head.

Have gone on the basis of shit that we paid large wages / a transfer fee breaks any ties with academy grads or loans, so Sels rather than Alnwick, Xisco rather than Luuk de Jong or Kuqi and so on.

 

Appreciate there's some free transfers in there but they are in there on merit.

We were desperate for a keeper, especially after what happened the previous year, and on paper a 24 year old in the Belgian squad probably looked a good deal. He looked really poor when he played though

 

Gamez was signed early to replace Janmaat, I don't think we thought we'd be able to get someone like Yedlin later on in the window

If we're talking really disappointing signings I think Thauvin and MYM have to be in there. I was really hoping they'd both work out/

 

Also thought Pancrate was pretty rubbish after that first goal
