Feel free to give a critque of your nominations, but let’s steer clear of personal abuse, eh?

    Left Back-konch
    Right Back-ferdinand(when he played there)
    Central Defender-repka(brilliant as right back)
    Central Midfield-?

    GK Allen Mcknight
    Full backs Gary Charles Mitchell Thomas
    CB Gary Breen Rigobert Song
    Wing Andy Impey Franz Carr
    Midfield Nigel Quashie only just behind Chapman
    Forward LEE CHAPMAN got ot be the worst player ever to wear the C&B a proven flop that we persisted to play, shameful. Mike Small

    With the exception of Carr the rest have played more than a handful of games for West Ham although I have no idea why.

  21. Plaistow54 says:

    Titi Camera
    Lampard Jnr

  22. John Noakes says:

    Legendary stuff – I’m gonna have nightmares for weeks to come – what about worst manager – I say its gotta be Glen “Bostic” Sniffer Roeder by a country mile. Is it me or does the gut look like he’s had his head buried in a bag of loctite for 90 mins.

    No mention of Manny Omoyimni so far which concerns me

  23. KD says:

    Goalkeeper: Alan McShite
    Left Back: Mitchell Thomas
    Right Back Gary Charles
    Central Defender Calum Davenport (Well done Curbs!)
    Central Defender Christian Daily (Why is he still at WHU?)
    Winger Dale Gordon
    Winger Beauchamp
    Central Midfield: Quashie (Why would any PL manager sign him?????????)
    Central Midfield Hayden Mullins (Mr Average, can’t even pass straight)
    Striker David Kelly
    Stiker: Carlton Cole (How does he play in the PL? A clumsy donkey with
    no skill or confidence what so ever. Thanks Pardew! And Curbs
    likes him too!!) THE WORST WHU player I ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Bobby Zamora 100% Championship player
    Mat Etherington 1 classy game a season against crap opposition – shit rest of time
    Boa Morte A £45K a wk piece of crap
    Gary Breen (Thanks Roeder!)
    Freddie Ljungberg Useless £75K a wk injury prone player. Was never all that,
    hasn’t been any good for at least 3 seasons. Thanks Magnusson!

    WHU needs:
    1. Clear out all the over paid injury prone donkey’s and useless Championship players
    2. Promote the youth, Sears, Stanislas, Tomkins and Spence
    3. Bring in some young foreign quality players
    4. Discard the BORING Charlton stylie football that Curbs has tortured us all with
    5. Sack Curbs and bring in Slav! Save our team Slav!!!!!

    I can’t handle another season of Carlton Cole…….

  24. KD says:

    You’ll most likely edit my rants out. Tell me they aint true????!


  25. Sam says:

    sasa illic
    titi camara

  26. Teddy Picker says:

    Carlton Cole= Donkey
    Zamora= First class championship player (When the ball hits your head and your sat in row z that’s Zamora!!!)
    Quashie= Benn relegated 4 times. Enough said
    Ditherington= can’t dribble, can’t pass
    Ljungberg= overrated over paid
    Boa Morte= Send him back to fulham
    Mullins= Why he starts every week i will never know….

    Freddie Sears is the second coming of Jesus

    ralph milne
    nigel quashie

    titi camara
    marco boogers

  29. Pete Nic & The Vic says:

    I liked Boogers, he had a lovely caravan and my Vic used to go round there and clean him out on match days. Also, that joey beau-chump was such a likeable character, my Vic also gets home sick when walking round to the local shops but she makes up for it by sticking a few mars bars in her pocket. Oh! and while we are on the subject mike marsh was so home sick he ended up in turkey then southend…ah! bless his little scouse socks…which reminds me that I must go and nih’ck a car. I did have a lot of respect for lee chapman as well, okay so he was shit at football but at least his right hook was way above average, my vic, bless her also has a good right hook on her but her left in the inside pocket, hand on wallet is much better.

  30. Pete Nic & The Vic says:

    and if anyone has a pop at the jewish chronicle they don’t know anything about gettin’ the ball on the deck and playing a sweet, sardonic style of football…he’s the scottish brady don’t you know.

  34. Roshi says:

    Can anyone remember John Cushley in the back four. He came from Celtic I think, blimey my Nan would have been better. I can remember a groan go around the ground when he was given the ball.

  35. Stew says:

    Nigel Quashie and Luis Boa Morte have ben complete wastes of money and i feel they have been failures. Boa Morte has been our 6th highest amount of money signing and we are paying huge wages for him when he cant score or even pass.

  36. Upton Spark says:

    I can only think that Plaistow 54 is having a laugh.
    How can he say worst players are;
    Ince ,Lampard Jnr and Defoe??

    You may not have liked them,.but they were far from the worst players we have seen.

  40. LiberalHammer says:

    Oh and BOA when he is played as a centre forward

  41. Plaistow54 says:

    Yes i was having a dig, no need to apologise. My sense of humour gets the better of me at times & occasionally i do get in trouble.

  42. pjd says:

    easy the 11 who disgraced the shirt today versus chelsea

  43. Upton Spark says:

    Thanks Plaistow. Nice to have some honesty from your good self. Well done.
    I actually spoke to Ince once and he said he had still got some feelings for the supporters at West Ham and was sorry for any upset he caused when he was young and imature.

  45. saff says:

    am i the only one who thought dumitrescu was appaling?

  46. OK…. I’ve had enough of the punters at my local saying the same thing. For god’s sake, leave off slagging Carlton Cole. He has skills, he chases down balls, he can win in the air (ever seen Ashton get anywhere near heading any ball that he contests) and the guy has a lot of touch for a big man.

    As for Boa Morte … all that has been said is true. If I have to watch him whining just ONE more time to the ref., I am putting a chair through the telly.

  47. MP3 says:
