Worst Blackburn Rovers Signing Ever?

Worst Blackburn Rovers Signing Ever?

Blackburn Rovers, like most others have made a fair few wet kipper signings; sasman names a few and invites us to offer others.

Over the years we have had some fantastic names gracing our football fields. But today I am wondering who you guys think our worst ever signings are?

My information is limited to modern day players, so who could forget such fantastic signings such as Egil Ostenstad, Corrado Grabbi and Javier De Pedro (my personal worst signing!) Some might even include Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole, but I think they got a fair share of goals.

So what do you all think out there, who has been our worst ever signing?

This article was written and submitted by sasman.

Mention your names (maybe even with reasons) below and we can maybe run a poll to decide who we see as our worst signing ever!?!?

How do you distinguish a bad signing? Is it for the money paid and what we got in return or merely what we got full stop regardless as to price or not? I guess you have to take a little of both into account.

Some of my personal favourites are Darren Peacock, Hakan Unsal, Kaba Diawara, Kevin Davies, Tore Pedersen, Patrik Valery (IN CASE YOU DIDN'T KNOW, THE GUY IN THE IMAGE!!!), Richard Witschge and Niklas Gudmundsson to name but a few!

Oh and Amoruso without doubt

Interesting, completely forgot about Amoruso, but then again, not that hard to forget about him lol

Grabbi was the biggest waste of money EVER, what was Mr Angry thinking?!?!

Do we really count Amoruso! Didn't play enough games to qualify as a signing did he :) lol He was another BAD one.

still paid money for him, I think??

Didn't he arrive on a free at the end of his Rangers contract?
