Who's the worst player that you've seen your club sign? I'm talking about a real disappointment here. Someone your team's manager waxed lyrical about, yet could hardly pull off a 5-yard pass.
Paul Doolin. Good when he played, but he was reponsible for so many bad signings that it seems only fair to sum them all up into him.
As a random example, I think Greg O'Dowd has a league winner's medal. I have no idea how.
Irish international 7/8 months before we signed him. Ended up playing about 15 games last season de to various injuries as after 2/3 weeks it was obvious he wasn't first choice material. he did have one great game in Elfsborg though (at right back)
Michael Keane is up there too, and Gary McPhee might get a look in too as Eamon Collins raved so hard about him
From a good few seasons ago ...
Glen Fitzpatrick, Alan McNevin & Shane Harte spring to mind ... pure muck on the pitch but I was often assured that they were class in training
The wonderfully goal-shy star striker ... Paul McTiernan

Weve signed a lot of bad players as has every club but the
Worst signing in recent years was Paul Brown,
because we actually paid a transfer fee for him.
He was absolutely rubbish.
Sean Connor was raving about him for months beforehand.
Too many to mention but a relevant and recent one was Kyle Moran. Absolute muck and he get's a game for Pats now
God, I don't know where to start. Sinisa Savic would have to be up there. Looked class in a trial game, we signed him on pretty big money and he was absolutely useless. Memorably spent one game in Tolka snogging the face off his girlfriend all game at the back of the stand. He also wanted crowds to be photoshopped into pictures of him in action for the Under 21s so he could put them on his official website.
"Them syreens did this to Pete. They loved him up and turned him into a horny toad."
Gary Beckett. Sums up last season- overpaid, injured 90% of the time and dung the rest.
Life without Finn Harps makes no sense.
Although in fairness life with Finn Harps rarely makes any either.
Not a Drogheda fan but the Senagalese striker they had last year was a disappointment.
"If you don't work harder I'll pull you off at halftime,"
“Crikey, at Manchester City all we get is an orange and a cup of tea,"
Pierre Ennis. God, he was shocking. As was Effin' Ekoku, but at least he had the excuse of being eight million years old.
Love football. Hate racism. Hate Rovers.
