The Yank. What was all that signing all about!!!
Quite a lot of the Hodges era signings were poor. Phil Starbuck anyone
You don't understand the Swan comments? What is it about paying £300,000 for a poisonous money-grabber who hated most of his teammates and was almost single-handedly responsible for turning a promotion-chasing team into a relegated one that you don't understand?!
Because he played 'at times' that makes his disastrous impact okay?

Imagine if Ollie was backed with a relatively small amount and we brought in the man who almost single-handedly got Blackpool to the Premier League? We could be looking at a very different club right now.
None of that is MacLean's fault obviously, but context.is always important.
they went back a few years then not, too many to mention but jim beglin has to be up there.PL2 3DQ wrote: Website Football League World has an article about the most dreadful Argyle signings of all time...

You have to factor in costs so Steve MacLean (still our record signing) or Kenny Cooper or Peter Swan would be my choice for Argyle's worst ever signing.
Who would you choose?
