    Emanuel Pogatetz is on loan to us and is quite possibly one of the worst defenders to ever grace our club (and we have had our fair share!)

    He is totally out of his depth in the Premier league. He cant tackle, has no pace and is left standing as wingers waltz past him. I'm thanking my lucky stars he is only a loan which is up in the summer phew!

    He might be a contender for the worst player to have a Champions League, FA cup and League cup winner medals but certainly not the worst Prem player. We've had much worse. Degen, Voronin, Itandje and Daio all come to mind.

    Yeh true Daio is a good shout. Both Gerrard and Carra singled him out as the worst player they had ever seen in their books. Stevie said he knew from the first day of training Daio couldn't cut it. Voronin I always have sympathy for though. He always played so well in Germany I think that was more of a mismatch rather then just a crap player. Was just to slow for Rafa's system. But I think the ponytail alone keeps him from being the worst.

    John Carew was a disaster, once upon a time he actually claimed Zlatan Ibrahimovic over rated, the whole country of Norway believed him lol.

    Claude Davis (was a center half for Sheff United in 2006 - truly awful player)
    Bebe for Man United - terrible buy

    The ultimate worst player in premier league history must be Ali Dia! He wasn't even a proper footballer and conned Southampton into signing him by saying he was George Weah's cousin: Hilarious!

    While Bendter certainly aren't among the top rated players, i would say its fairly harsh to beat on him for being among the worst ... much of the flak in his direction is due to off-field issues (not that that is to be ignored, but still...) and IMHO to some ammount of being used in a way that doesn't fit his style and play
