Who out of these 8 is your worst signing?

Didn't we have a thread like this last week and wasn't the poster added to the poll by a mod?

No hints here of course ;)

Can't honestly vote until I've seen them all put in a full match. I thought Ventola was brilliant for the five minutes he was on. I think Sorondo was rubbish for the five minutes on Saturday and against Fulham.

So if there was a don't know option I'd take it.:eek:

Do we have to have threads like this?

I opened it up from the home page thinking (hoping) it might just be a mickey tack in the Memory Lane forum.

What's the point of doing this for current players?

Haven't seen enough of them really to judge.

Harsh call on Sorondo JFBeagle for Saturday's game though. He was brought on in midfield and admittadely looked a little lost but it was only for ten minutes and there was no point changing Hall and Popo at the back. He done enough against Fulham when replacing Hall.

Those that have had a chance, look good and the others still have not had much of a chance. Very negative thread. Even Speroni who has impressed least is important as a backup keeper.

davematt
25-10-2004, 12:08 PM

welshneil
25-10-2004, 12:35 PM
None of them have been BAD, sometimes it just takes longer for players to settle in than it does others. Prime example...MIKAEL FORSSELL!!!!! In a similar vote I rekon he'd have come quite high when he first signed on loan, developed into one of our best (and most passionate) players that season. Who thought AJ would have made such an impact when TF signed him? At least give it time before potentially starting a 'witch hunt!'

Surely this is just a bit of harmless fun? People can be very serious on here at times.

I would say it's too early to judge who has been our worst signing. However, the one I am most disappointed in so far is Torghelle as, for some reason, I expected him to make more of an impact. I am hoping he will come good in the medium to long-term, but he seems further down the pecking order than I would have imagined (no doubt he'll be further down the order when Ventola returns from injury).

Pistike

GreatGonzo
25-10-2004, 01:49 PM
People probably vote for Andrews on the basis he is not and probably never wil be part of the 1st team squad from what we have seen so far. Up to now he is the only one on that list who has not played for the 1st team.

Silly thread

skorpie
25-10-2004, 01:50 PM
Kiraly, still. He doesn't even wear his tracksuit bottoms, still. :bash:

landeval

voted for Torghelle because we need him back in MTK. Lost even against a team playing in purple because we have no striker good as Torghelle

not sure how you can say that about Sorondo. He made a few useful forays into the Fulham half near the end of the 2nd half and look solid at the back.

Don't think any are bad signings. Speronni probably worst, but I think he could improve. Not voting as seems too harsh on them, and a few weeks ago I'd probably have voted Boyce, whereas now he rightly keeps out Butts.
So what's the point?

04-11-2004, 11:44 AM
All as bad as each other...f***in' awful the lot of 'em.

And you can add Johnson, Dowie, Harbin, Hughes, Aki, Popovic and the others to that list, they're all useless.

Shouldn't be in the Prem, more like 'League 1 or 2' IMO.

If you think it's a crap thread, don't vote or read it! Why do you have to spoil the thread for others? I think that's a bit selfish really! It's when things are gong well that it should be easiest to deal with the negativity, especially if you don't take it the wrong way and get all serious! Personally I thought Boyce was going to be a bad signing cos we already had Butts and Leigertwood, but the way it turned out, they got injured and he has played and looked the part. People might criticise Speroni but I think he is excellent back-up. Andrews is a baffling signing but who knows? Maybe we'll need him one-day too. I'm not going to be negative, but there's no need to ostracise others just because they don't agree with you or follow the crowd.

I can't believe so many people have voted. This type of thread is totally unhelpfull to the cause of CPFC. ie. US!!!!

Some of the comments posted on the thread support this view as well. Why do some Palace fans always have to whinge at something?

Is it genetic?

Can we never just be happy with what we have?

Think back one year to where we were.

To be honest I don't care if we have made some duff signings. What matters is that we progress and having a bigger squad is part of that.

And as for some of those on your list! Have you seen us play? Judging from the list, no.

If this was a retrospective look I would name players who have left the club and we all have an idea of who is our worst players ever. But to put members of the current squad on a list like this is quite frankly treason!!

10-12-2004, 06:06 PM
Harsh. Speroni was meant to be one for the future.

Very harsh on Sorondo - he's looked good when he's played.

How can anyone think that Boyce is worse than all the others? Best signing maybe, but not worst.

For me it has to be Padvano Pt II, Ventola. His knees are shot.

hughsaaaay
10-12-2004, 08:00 PM
From what i've seen Torghelle could be the most untalented player ever

to play at this club. He's had more sending offs than goals and has

missed the ball when trying to shoot on countless occassions. Look at

his feet when he runs the next time he plays (if ever) they barely get

off the ground and he's only 22!!

BW_Palace
10-12-2004, 08:08 PM
Ventola has looked very good when he's been fit (admittedly, not very often).

And hughesaay: Very, very harsh. He's young, he looked alright before he got injured and he got the winner against Charlton in the cup (;)).

I still think it's too early to judge any signing and call them the worst signing.

tonkers
14-12-2004, 12:53 PM
i believe in dowies capabilities so there i would say none of the above are worst signings they were all worth signing, pointless thread, and far too negative!!!!
