Without a doubt Leon Constantine for me - looked like a lower league Thierry Henry whenever he came up against us but probably the most ineffective striker I've seen at the club. No physicality, pace had gone, couldn't finish, offered absolute nothing the entire time he was here.

Honourable mentions to Shaun Harrod and Andy Kirk, who while weren't terrible, really underwhelmed as marque signings after racking up goals elsewhere prior to joining.

JJ Hooper - when Rob Page brought him in, it showed how few connections he had in the game.

I wasn't disappointed with JJ Hooper - I knew he'd be sh1t!!

Mine also was Constantine. Was really excited when I saw we'd signed him. Really lazy as well. Really lazy!

This thread has the potential to outdo the Redev thread.

Oh absolutely about JJ Hooper - it was the disappointment that Rob Page had no-one to call on for a player.  JJ was his former Port Vale player, who wasn't getting in their side - so Rob Page had one connection = himself.

Apart from several of the current crop, no need to name them, how about Paul Wilkinson and Tom Youngs. Admittedly Wilkinson was at the end of his career, but was still abysmal and Youngs, top scorer with Cambridge twice, I think we paid a fair amount for, by our standards and a few other teams were after him. I think he got injured and was never the same player.

James Quinn, the Northern Ireland international, was pretty shocking. Never looked vaguely interested.

I know this is all subjective, but theres no way any of the current bunch, even the underperforming ones, live up to some of the ones we've had. Those Austrian kids, John Johnsons mate who was signed to keep him company, Seb Harris, Courtney Herbert, Freddy Hall, Alistair freaking Slowe. Even players like Harry Beautyman, Jake Robinson and Emanuel Sonupe who were not good enough to be pro players but not offensively bad like the others are probably worse than anyone on our books at the moment.

Paul McGregor also took the opportunity to slate Northampton afterwards.

I have less issue with those lacking a bit of talent but put the effort in than those with the opposite.

Paul Millar. Think his only contribution was an own goal at St James Park, Newcastle, 87 a minute after the Cobblers had equalised infront of 23,177!

I think 2 goals from the three of them, mentioning no names, in half a season, suggests they possibly do.

Ian Henderson played 26 games for us without scoring. Look at his record since he left, perhaps this is a strikers graveyard.
