    Default Worst Forest Debuts?

    Bong's horrendous showing last night made me wonder if there were any other obvious contenders for worst Forest debut ever. Anyone leap to mind?

    In terms of sheer hype...then absolute letdown when he did get on the pitch - look no further.

    Marco Pascolo v Man City. Forest went up, City went down. City won 3-1 at the City Ground.

    Swiss World Cup goalkeeper. Had a mare. Never played for Forest again.

    Pascolos debut was at Port Vale (1:0). And played at least 5 league matches that season 97/98.

    Beck's & McGoldricks stick in my mind.

    McGoldrick's proof though that, given time, players can come good. So Bong might spin it round in 5 years or so. Maybe we should loan him out until he's 36?

    Somewhere in the world on a football pitch Mikkel Beck is still trying to regain control of the ball after a terrible first touch.

    Gomis looked as if he'd never played football before. Never played for us again and only played a handful of games in his brief professional career. We can all agree Abdoun was amazing that day. Remember him tearing strips off Mackie walking off at half time for missing a sitter after Abdoun set him up.

    Big Kev was alright that game, got booked straight away but after that settled and did well. Abdoun had his one good game and we sang "it is what it is" to Billy who never acknowledged the fans despite having to walk by them.

    We had a goalkeeper, in the loosest possible sense, at the end of the 60s who played 3 times. His name was Mick Harby. Those 3 games were Sunderland (H) 0-3, Wolves (A) 1-6 and Liverpool (A) 1-6. For some reason he never played again

    I knew/know Bulwell-born Mick, mainly through being a mate of his younger brother.

    That experience completely destroyed his professional career in this country despite the fact he'd been highly regarded as a young 'keeper at England schoolboy and youth level. His confidence was significantly affected, although he later moved to Australia where he managed to carve-out a decent career.

    The Croatian centre half whose name escapes me, so memorable was he (but he had a 5-year contract and sat at home picking up his pay until it expired).
    And Nicklaus Bendtner... he must be a contender as well - so unfit he was out of breath after running onto the pitch.

I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    Problem with Jerkan was, he wasn’t a centre half. He was a Germany style Sweeper. We didn’t play with one, so just asked him be a centre-half.

    On a slightly different note...

    What about Forest players that were shite at the beginning but were given a chance, and turned out pretty decent?

    Marlon Harewood?
    Mark Crossley?
    Kevin Campbell?
    Ben Watson?

    David Johnson.

    Also, Ricci Scimeca, before we moved him to midfield.
    And Chris Bart-Williams looked awful to start with.
