When we signed Patrick Cregg from Falkirk I thought we might of had a player but he turned out to be completely out the picture after a few months. Alan Gow, Ritchie Towell and especially Shelton Martis all spring to mind as well
Not read my way through all of this thread but if it is not restricted to Hibs, how about the dozen or so players, including iirc Malaury Martin, signed by our Gorgie neighbours in a January and happily wasted FOH donations?
Sean OíHanlon. I remember a number of MK Dons fans were gutted when we signed him as they were raving about him a lot. Thought we had signed a proper leader at the back that we badly lacked back then but blimey, this guy was terrible!
It was regarded as a coup when we got him, but he got that injury before we could find out if he would realise his potential.
I remember it. Put a good cross in down at the north east corner and the Dunfermline defender crunched into him as he played the ball. The final was a few weeks after that game but the poor guy was out for months and was never the same again.
