    In all honesty, I think he was the most average player ever to pull on our shirt. Certainly in the Premiership years.

    I don’t think any ‘average Joe’ out of the stands could’ve done less or worse, if they were given matching fitness levels. Seriously. I’ve thought that for a while. He was pinching money, here.

    TBH I can think of alot worse ABL.

    Before any of them joined the Latics Thomas was widely thought of as the most talented player out of Himself, Figs and Palacios also being being captain of the Honduras national team.

    While the latter two went on to play regularly for their respective teams I dont think Thomas ever really got the chance to do well under Roberto.

    I always saw him as an engine room holding midfielder in a standard 4-4-2 and would probably do a good job for the likes of Bruce.

    Folan scored some crucial goals for us. Albeit a short stay, he did more than the others. The rest granted were/are shoite.

    Out of that list…..

    Agahowa-Last heard of, was playing for Kayserispor in Turkey. What did we waste on him? 5 million was it?

    Bouaouzan ( never made an appearance? )-Did he not play a L/cup game?

    De Ridder-Spent more time flicking his locks, than on the ball.

    Connolly-A bit harsh on him. Scored a cracker on his debut.

    Folan-I think we could’ve developed him further. Better than Sammon?

    Krapo-Useless signing. What was the point?

    King-Made up when we signed him. Had too much going on OFF the pitch.

    Scotland-2 paces short of being a Premiership player. Caught on ball too much before he could shoot.

    Webster-A stupid signing. One of convenience, as Rangers wouldn’t sell direct to Hearts, or vice versa. Allegedly. We were merely the pawn.

    Webster made his Wigan debut in a league match in a 4–0 win against Manchester City, as a second half substitute for Fitz Hall, on 21 October 2006. He went on to start the next three matches but found the switch to the English Premier League difficult. His time with Wigan was short-lived and, after just four appearances, he was deemed surplus to requirements.

    Somebody has to fill in for Donners while he is on his holidays :whistle:

    Been alot of dross over the years tbh along with the absolute gems we have had the pleasure of watching..

    Here is a cost comparison for those players.

    No prizes for guessing who signed the most costly ones!

    *possible loan fees received
    (figures not accurate)

    Was he so forgetable that no one mentions our swedish wonder boy, Andreas Johansson? Apart from his abilty to control the ball with his chest, I marvelled at every occasion I saw him. How did anyone think he was up to it?
    I have to concede that he did actaully score some goals, which differentiates him from some of the aforementioned gentlemen. But utterly crap!

    I thought about him but remembered when he got played as a lone striker due to injuries and scored.

    Makes him more succesful than the majority of strikers bought over the PL years.

    When he joined the club didnt he come on as a sub once and then get nowhere near the team for almost a year?

    Bit strange considering he was hyped up by alot to be a very good signing, maybe there was a story behind it…

    What about the Norwegian midfielder we took on (can’t remember if it was a loan) who Gamst-Pedersen tried to pursuade to join Blackburn instead of Latics.
    I seem to recall he made one appearance against Chelsea and did a back pass from the half way line to Pollit, which was intercepted by a chelsea player who scored.
    I don’t think he made another appearance.
    Whjat was his name?
    Keeping to the Scandinavian theme, there was also Andreas Granqvist.

    Kristofer Haested?

    Andreas Granqvist has apparently gone on to become a really good defender.

    I think Newcastle were linked with him recently…

    Didnt exactly shine for us under Chris Hutchings but then again who did :(
