......but never really did!

There are a few from me.

A couple from when Sammy Lee went on a spending spree when big sam left.

Wilhelmson and Daniel Bratten.

Than there was the mexican Jared Borgetti.

Danny Shittu, simply due to how much we spent on him and he only played a handful or so games.

Borgetti was an excellent prospect, scored 7 goals in 19 games mainly from the bench.

Allardyce just didn't fancy a goalscorer over Kevin Davies.

Nothing against Steve Thompson, but weren't we a non-league team in those days?

Borgetti was playing in the Prem.

Silly me, I'd forgotten that professional football only started in England in 1992 when Sky TV invented it.

It had completely slipped my mind that prior to that, the game was played by shoe-less amateurs, using tin cans for balls.

My mistake.

Nicky Brookman - he looked a great prospect as a young lad then pissed it all away, too much boozing cost him

I really wanted Borghetti to get more of a chance and remember how excited Bolton fans were when we signed that fat limp wristed and ran like a girl Brazilian? He should have been absolute quality but Lardel was the biggest disappointment i can remember

When I first saw him,I assumed a drunk had run onto the pitch.

I wanted both of them to make it but they were never given a chance to, I would have liked to have seen Jardel too, overweight but new how to score.

There are hundreds of signings that haven't come good for us or didn't get a chance. Watching Chelsea demolish Manure yesterday with Marcos Alonso and Cahill playing I was thinking what an amazing team we might have had if things had worked out differently. Blerim Dzemaili is the obvious one that got away and went on to do great things, but there are so many that crashed and burned. This could be a long thread.

Great shout that, I always liked him I suppose one a bit more current is Mark Davies.

:agree:

I also wish Holden had not suffered so badly from injury and been given more time to play for us.

Sordell. If Coyle had actually played him we may even have stayed up.

Jermaine Johnson. I remember he got a run against Arsenal and showed every trick in his, well, arsenal - except scoring. He didn't have the discipline at the time and went on to carve out a career at Sheffield Wednesday. More talented than you guys know.

Niall Maher - I fully expected him to be a senior player for us and was really disappointed to see him go.

Jamie Thomas - Goal of the month winner, scored spectacular goals and looked to be the "Next Big Thing". Released in the summer at the end of his contract, probably because we were (are?) skint - snapped up by Premier League campaigners Burnley. For free. Although we are skint.

I could go on, but I wont.

Jamie Thomas went on loan to Ayr United. They then cut short his loan and sent him packing.

Yet some of our fans seem to think we released a world beater

Very Happy At least we made a profit of him rather than an £8m loss like Elmander

Marcos Alonso and Gary Cahill. Neither was the finished article when they were with us but some of us - well most of us apart from Nat - thought they had the raw materials to be top class.
Watching them and their Chelsea team demolish Everton the other day, their class was obvious.

He was a great defender but we couldn't afford his wages. Shame really that we only had him on loan for half a season.
