Who was last years Best/Worst Signing?
« on: July 17, 2017, 02:45:51 PM »
14 transfers in last year and I was intrigued to see who the board thought was the best and worst signings from last year and why?

Equally, which one of the 14 (12 with Jozabed and Malone leaving) do we think could be the most improved player this year?

Best: McDonald. Easy decision. Our best player.

Worst: Sigurdsson. Awful CB, who we thought would bring much more.

Improved: Kebano. Can see him being the star man this season.

Agree with Perkins.

Without KMAC Stef and Tom do not get the freedom to play the way they do

Siggurdson is another case of looking good at one tournament, I said when we were singing him I hope it isnt true but was laughed at. I hoped he would prove me wroing and he may do in time (Ream we all had a go at and he improved last season), so fingers crossed.

Kebano - came on well after a sticky start, hopinghe now pushes on

K mac was a rerat signing but Aluko on a free has to be the biggest snip. He was the one who could make the difference when nothing else was  working .He scared opposition defenses. Its a very close call between Kmac, Aluko ,and Stefan Johansen who each in their own way were tremendous signings.
Sigardson was Poor  but martin the for me the biggest disappointment. He set us back when we were just getting going and never really had his heart in it.

Best in Johansen. K Mac v v close.

Worst - Well we've not seen Petsos,  and hardly any Jozabed so they might be worse than Sigurdsson.

For me best signing was Johansen.
Worst must be Sigurdsson who I expected more from.
Expect big things from Ayite this year

Looks like poor old Sigurdson is going to end up as a never was, unless his game has a massive turn around, but I cannot see it myself.
As for Kevin Mac, and Johanson, great signings along with Aluko and Ayite to be fair.
That is why we need to build on the quality players we have, to ensure we can challenge again for promotion. Striker, Two defenders  and probably a Goal Keeper, at the very least, otherwise if injuries play a part we are kippered.

Best Johansen.

Worst Martin for all the nonsense that came with him. Button was underwhelming to say the least.

Worst signing has to be Sigurdsson. Signed in the last week of the transfer window and there was a question whether his signing was needed. At the time he signed, we still had Bodurov,
stearman and Grimmer so the backup across the positions he could play was sorted.

Added to this the fact that before he signed we still didn't have a proper striker other than Cauley and Matt (who was to be sold) and we went out and wasted a few million on someone we didn't need. Can go further and question the little he done on the pitch but I'm just saying there was no need for the signing other than a cameo against England in the Euros. The money would have bought us a striker even Cyriac permanent would have helped more than a backup defender

Best - K Mac; close behind Johanson and Ayite.

Worst - Sigurdson

Most improved - Kebano and Ream

Most overrated - Aluko, who flatters to deceive  and Button who makes Betts appear a better keeper than he is.

Best:  Johansen. Great finisher, strong tackler, indefatigable. 

Worst: Jozabed.  Enough said already about this individual.

Likely to improve:  Suspect we will get a much better return from Odoi.

Indefatigable is one hell of a word. I've been trying for two years to get it into a sentence and I just have!

Mitro has to be the worst signing in my lifetime. Needed immediate help and 12 months later due to relegation it was just wrong on so many levels. Unpopularly, loaning berba off improved us in no way and if we could have got him to play who knows

Yes it is a hell of a word, and Johansen never seems to get tired, he never stops trying.
