Substitute’s Bench (Honourable Mentions)
Graham Stack – Dennis Wise signed him on loan and dropped Neil Sullivan in the process. 12 appearances later and more than a few people were questioning that decision.
Danny Granville – Signed for £1.6 million from Chelsea in 1998, sold to Manchester City for £800,000 in 1999. That’s essentially like setting fire to money.
Alan Wright – One appearance. Four goals conceded at home to Stoke. It’s fair to say Wright didn’t exactly set the world alight in West Yorkshire.
David Livermore – Bought in 2006 from Millwall for an undisclosed fee and promptly left ten days later for an undisclosed fee to Hull City. Kevin Blackwell said he already had too many players in that position. So why sign him in the first place?
Gary McSheffrey – Joined in 2010 on loan to help Leeds with their promotion campaign from League One, but proved more of a hindrance than a help. Thought he had some sort of divine right to start every game, McSheffrey’s attitude makes Cristiano Ronaldo look like a right old humble chap.
Enoch Showumni – The poor man’s Emile Heskey. In fact, Showumni was so bad, he makes Heskey look like God. This was a target man who couldn’t score or hold the ball up. The perfect example of how bad the calibre of player coming to Elland Road had got by 2008.
Cyril Chapuis – Signed by Peter Reid as part of the French Legion during the club’s Premier League relegation season. Was by far the worst of the lot. French striker, but Thierry Henry he most certainly wasn’t.
