BradwayRam Posted December 16, 2011 Share Posted December 16, 2011 I've given some thought to the dream team for the same period but, in trawling through the archives, have come up with some pearlers from the last twenty years. Remember these nobodies? GK: Ian Feuer (USA) - I remember doing the Sky 'Fanzone' on his debut (a 3-1 defeat at White Hart Lane). He was tall but, sadly, that was about it. RB: Francois Grenet (FRA) - reputedly the second best right back in France (behind Lillian Thuram) when he arrived. More like the 102nd best. CB: Claude Davis (JAM) - Neil Warncock must have laughed all the way to the bank when we paid £2m+ for this joker. Had a ridiculously inflated opinion of himself for one so error prone. CB: Bjorn-Otto Bragstad (NOR) - Norwegian international who looked like a footballer but played like a man involved in a game of musical statues with the music permenantly off. LB: Mo Camara (GUI) - Why did Celtic let the highly rated international full-back go? Because, it transpired, he was garbage. CM: Maricio Solis (CRI) - Arrived as carrying Paulo Wanchope's bags. Jim Smith misunderstood his broken english for 'I am just Paulo's mate' for 'I am a quality midfielder'. CM: Przemyslaw Kazmierczak (POL) - The big number five was, in fact, a big number two. CM: Andrei Perplotkins (LAT) - Interesting to note that the bald Latvian winger's name scores many, many more points at Scrabble than the number of ball touches he ever had as a Rams player. ST: Junior (BRA) - Who could forget the Brazilian striker's bleach blond crew cut and incredible work rate in a Rams shirt? I had forgotten the first bit and the second bit isn't true. ST: Manel (SPA) - In a homage to the Baseball Ground, the Rams agreed to sign a striker who, when 'running', made it look as though he was strudging through the muddiest centre circle in history. ST: Mikkel Beck (DEN) - No list like this would be complete without this man. Signed on transfer deadline day for £500k (he would have been available for a free three months later), if only he'd put as much effort on the football pitch as he clearly did to applying his hair products. A few others worthy of note: Daniele Daino (ITA) - Reputedly could play in either full-back position. Wrong. Twice. Tomas Hajto (POL) - Signed for eighteen months, lasted just four. Con Blatsis, Ruben Zadkovich, Mile Sterjovski (AUS) - The golden rule being 'Don't sign an Australian unless his name is Tim Cahill'. Khalou Fadiga, Blessing Kaku (NIG) - The golden rule being 'Don't sign a Nigerian international midfielder from Bolton Wanderers'. Pierre Ducrocq (FRA) - of ****. Gilles Sunu (FRA) - Not every Arsenal youngster is an Arturo Lupoli. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
