    I was going to suggest Platt to manage the waste of money xl
    He'd probably waste more money on crap replacements for them too!

    Where’s Marlon Harewood mkII?

    That was a complete waste of wages (can’t remember if we paid a fee for him)

    Far too many winners just to pick one team!!

    Reading through the thread I'd forgotten just how many real dogs we housed whilst they pretended to be footballers.

    Abdoun defo not in this list.

    Jack hobbs is my pick, for the sheer amount of time he got here for being never on the pitch. Maybe Zach Clough as well, 3 million right?

    This thread needs to stay near the top this season just as a reminder of how things once were.
    Even if things dont work out come May it'll be an interesting comparison to make.

    A waste of money 11 needs to include expensive flops rather than cheap ones from our League One days. Jack Hobbs doesn't even come close to being half as bad as the likes of Cullipp, Eaden and so on but the price we paid for him and the years he spent out of action makes him a more worthy shout than any of our lower league defenders. Aryibi was too cheap at £300k to qualify, we probably paid Bendtner triple that amount in his short time here.

    Stojkovic

    Mancienne Hobbs Mills Konchesky

    Boateng Greening Abdoun

    Bendtner Fryatt Djebbour

    He doesn't even register as a footballer to me. Not fit to lace Bendtner's boots is that lad

    A lot of players mentioned here were free or very cheap.

    For pure waste of money have to include Cox (2m), Miller (1.2m), Clough (3m) Djebbour and Abdoun.

    Someone above said we paid 750k for Marco Pascolo. Jesus, he’s in goal.

    Marlon King for 1m needs to be in there too.

    Ooooooh, got it! Scott fucking Dobie. We paid like £800k for that useless bastard, when we were in league 1 as well, so comparatively that’s even more. And he’s probably in my straight-up “worst Forest team ever” with Eugene Dadi, so yeah, Dobie wins.

    On holiday recently i wss reading one of the books by the 'secret footballer'. They're great books and one of the chapters of the book discussed the situation of Cotterill being poached by Forest. He wasn't mentioned by name, but it's pretty well acknowledged that the 'secret footballer' is dave kitson ans he was at pompey at the time. He couldn't be more scathing or Cotterill (it seems the hatred was mutual) and he takes great pleasure in telling how him and his new team got 'pumped' when they returned for a league game a few weeks later. Apparently Cotterill was waiting for him in the tunnel after the game, threatening to kill him
