    All of these teams need to be managed by Cotterill, the fact we paid money for that dead man walking still astounds me.
    Cotterill is far from the worst manager we've had.

    I'd give that honour to Joe Kinnear.

    The human lamp post. I'm still waiting for the tv show where it's revealed that his signing was a spoof.

    Did we pay a fee to take him days before he was sacked though? That is just another aspect of that monumental (mental?) waste of money.

    Here’s mine (3-5-2):

    GK: Kapino

    D: Gomis, Hobbs, Traore

    M: Clough, Greening, Boateng, Lam, Ariyibi

    F: Vellios, Miller

    Let’s see them, who would make your worst side?
    This is a great tread Chris I would say though that Kapino made us 1 million so although he was shite for being here for what 3 months and making us a million it was good business!!

    I don't know if cotterill was going to get sacked but we had to pay £250,000 thousand for him and let we let Morgan go for 1 mill. That season was dreadful...

    Agree that Ward deserves a mention. Wallace was ok. He was considered a flop mainly because he was a replacement for Francis, and so second rate relatively.

    Overall, considering actual waste of money, it has to be Fashanu. He was one of the record transfer fees at the time.

    He's up there but he's offside.....

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    Fryatt is the first name on the teamsheet for me. Probably the biggest waste of money ever.

    Lansbury and Kapino were bought for a combined £1m and sold for a combined £4.5m. Excellent business for two Championship substitute quality players.

    I know we don't like to give him stick for all the good he's done but Brazil claims possibly the worst signing ever in Ariyibi.

    In terms of the price we paid, he hasn't even made the bench. At least we got a few shit performances out of some players

    Clough at £3m was hardly Brazil's finest hour.

    Ian Wallace was top scorer for three out of four seasons so hardly a flop.

    Peter Ward was mediocre but his sister was well known for getting her norks out.

    That's what happens when you tell a caretaker manager, appointed about a week before deadline day, to quickly get some players in...

    For what's it worth, I still think we'd have been better off keeping the Clough money and playing Grant instead, he wouldn't have contributed any less than Clough managed.
