Pick your worse Leeds Team since 1970

Postby guitarmark » 28 Aug 2018, 18:26

Chatting to a friend the other day, in the pub, after the recent Derby win and tried to come up with the worse LUFC team

Criteria had to be 4-3-3 or 4-4-2 formation - After 1970 - Recall far more attackers then other positions - And I dare say most of our worse players have come in the last 15 years - Part based on recent memories and part as the 'glory days' have gone for now based on top flight football

So my 11 on a 4-3-3

Casper Ankergren

Alex Bruce - Paul Connolly - Roque Junior - M Duberry

Sean Gregan - Carlton Palmer - Jody Morris

Tore Flo Michael Rickets - Marlon King

Couple of points - I know many will throw in Seth Johnson - But to be truthful, he wasn't crap - he was just crap for us, partly due to injury, with little output based on transfer fee - Ditto for Brolin - We'd have loved to have had him 5 years earlier

Now a question - can't find his name - midfielder - Terry Venables era - and recall Aussie or Kiwi - but would add him to my team, so who is he

Interesting first post, gmark, I would say you could pick almost any team under Colin when he shipped out all of the decent players and brought in utter dross.

I'm working on a team, but could the player you're thinking of be Paul Okon?

There is no such thing as a worst team. Every man who pulls on that famous shirt is a hero in my eyes, who deserves only respect and admiration.

Here is my "Can't believe they got to wear the shirt" team:

Felix Whoopswald
Hayden Foxe, Armando Sa, Lamine Sacko, Teddy Lucic
Kevin Nicholls, David White, Seth Johnson, Peter Barnes
Luke Varney, Ian Rush

Head Coach: Dave Hockaday

I remember Paul Okon! Venables kept picking instead of David Batty...........

That is just a sample of the motley collection of dross we have been subjected to over the years.The odd one here and there we could carry but when there is a whole bunch thrown together with a clueless Manager/Head Coach and we end up in the doldrums and potless
Unbelievable Jeff! It's just a comfortable bucket
