Worst team of the decade24
December 21, 2012 by Made In Brum
Birmingham City have had some awful players. Some players have been picked as they never lived up to their potential, some have been picked because they are shocking footballers.Rob Wildey picks his ‘worst team of the decade’.
GK: RICHARD KINGSON- Blues have been lucky in the goalkeeping department, but Kingson just wasn’t up to scratch. The highlight of his time at Blues was when he bumped into the post and suffered concussion.
RB: BJORN OTTO BRAGSTAD- On loan from Derby, Bjorn really was a useless defender.
CB: GIOVANNY ESPINOZA- How did this big lummox make it as a professional footballer? Awful, just awful.
CB: DAVID HOLDSWORTH- Feel a bit harsh putting Holdsworth in the team as he always gave 100%, but he wasn’t the best.
LB: ULISES DE LA CRUZ- Thankfully, the former Villa man was only a temporary signing…
RM: DAVID BENTLEY- His undoubted ability never shone through at Blues, he seemed more interested in a hair being out of place.
CM: NIGEL QUASHIE- Had previously been a decent player, unfortunately he was washed up long before joining the club.
CM: CURTIS WOODHOUSE- He is now a boxer. I am glad he realised that he wasn’t meant to be a footballer.
LM: JESPER GRONKJAER- Despite being as quick a lightning, his crosses were more dangerous to whoever was sat in row 40 than the opposition defence.
CF: CARLOS COSTLY- Absolutely appalling. So bad, it was actually funny.
CF: MATT DERBYSHIRE- He was never going to be the answer. But I don’t think he was as bad as he showed at Blues.
Do you agree? Tweet us @madeinbrum_bcfc
Bentley was disappointing. Quashie was shite. However, Andy Marriott has got to run Kingson close for worst keeper
Mark Sale wasn’t this decade pal
Cameron Jerome? He was cack…
You forgot mullins and caldwell!
Bit harsh on @woodhousecurtis
Kingson, alex bruce, espinoza, martin latka, uselss de la cruz, gronkjaer, nafti, mullins, robbie blake, costly,K francis
Gosh these ‘Mullins’ haters are getting boring. Zzzzzz. Stop using him as a scapegoat and stop picking on one player.
So he’s a good proven championship player for years and now all of a sudden he’s pap? Get a grip Blues fans
fernando coly? Senegal center half.got destroyed v arsenal.awful player.
Chris Sutton or Marcus Bent
Traore was bad, but I thought he was ok when he played for Blues.
Salif Diao, I forgot about him and Powell to be fair. I still think Woodhouse and Quashie take some beating.
Sutton was ok, but too injury prone.
Coly was bad, I agree.
Bouazza was average, scored a few goals though!
Harsh. He’s defo over rated, and lazy, but certainly not crap
He is. He has only ever had a handful of games in which he’s been decent. He’s lazy, cocky, and cack
Kirovski. Martin Taylor. Scott Sinclair was poor when he was on loan, look at him now. Must be hard playing under McLeish.
Colin Doyle, he’s rubbish. Arkidius Bak was shit too
The play-offs was the final straw for me regarding Doyle. Dodgy keeper
Butland all the way. Can’t believe people still want Doyle in 1st team
Carlos Ferrari…remember him?
Bentley was a tart, but can you get any worse than quashie? He was shocking
mullins isn’t a scape goat he’s just garbage,gotta blame lc for picking him though.On present form caldwell is as bad as martin taylor who was dire.Gosney was shite
Yep id go with that now you need ti put your best team down
The ‘team of the decade’ was posted on the site back in September. Take a look.
What about big kevin francis ?
KF didn’t play this decade
