1.8m IIRC, and sold for 1.2m. And scored 1 in 3 in a system not set up for him. Nowhere near our worst signings.

Money-wise, it has to be Ismael, given football finances were so different then to now - I thought it was closer to 2.5m we paid. I also had high hopes for Campana, but he did the square root of **** all for us as well!

As a replacement for Wright he was poor in direct comparison.

However we paid 1.8 for him and sold him to Derby for 1.1 if I remember correctly.

Plus he scored goals, Liverpool away being his finest game.

Nowhere near our worst in any category apart from in comparison to the player he replaced

Paul Bodin. Utter shite and in 1991 not inexpensive for us - 1m was it? Played about 5 times and was crap every time.

True.

And with hindsight and perspective, Wright was so good that it was always going to be v hard to replace him with someone else within our budget.

He was a direct replacement for the injured Salako. Coppell looked through Rothmans and signed him to play left midfield.

Mutch, Sako etc haven't done anything to earn their wage but realistically we're always going to have squad players picking up big money for doing nothing at this level.

It was signings like Carle, Kuqi, Kennedey etc that nearly bankrupted the club

I think Ruddock was the worst in my memory. Not only was he fat, past it and crap, but he dragged the rest of the team down by being an idiotic, lazy bully.

The Mutch fee was a lot for what he's done but in the context of how much footballers go for these days it wasn't particularly outrageous.

Been going since 1992. It has to be Valerien Ismael for me despite the fact he went on to win the Budesliga with Bourissia Dortmud. To think he was our record signing for nearly 15 years!
