Chelsea's (All-time) Nightmare Historic XI

Does Chris Sutton not get a look in either?

Compared to Mayes & Fleck, Sutton was like Pele.

surely jokanovic has to be in there somewhere. every game the same. come on as sub after 60 minutes, lose the ball constantly, get booked, play sh*t.

Jokanovic was close to getting included, but couldn't quite make it due to the fierce competition in midfield

You seem to have missed Bogarde

Bogarde seemed to get slated because he was happy to collect his wages while not playing, but when he did play he wasn't half as bad as some I could mention ;)

Sullivan* was worse than Iles, but Les Fridge* has to be in goal.

I'm afraid I missed the late John McNaught's* very few appearances.

Hutchings was never that bad. Andy Dow* was worse, I thought. Or the legend that was Doug Rougvie*!

Dave Mitchell up front, maybe? Or Steve Livingstone?

*Blimey Steve - we've had some dodgy players from over the border, to counter-balance the genius of Nevin and Cooke (and Speedie, from that well-known Glasgow suburb of Doncaster!)

OMG - just googled the "Aussie" Dave Mitchell:

David Stuart "Dave" Mitchell (born 13 June 1962 in Scotland) is a retired Australian football (soccer) player. He moved to Australia as a young child. He began his professional career with Adelaide City in 1981, and made his Australia debut against Taiwan that same year. He made 44 appearances for the national team, scoring 13 goals.

I didn't pick Fridge because he only played one game for us (there's probably a reason for that ;) ), and I agree that Sullivan was possibly worse than Iles - close thing though!

It was a close run thing between McNaught and Sitton. I agree that Hutchings wasn't that bad, but I was really struggling to think of a sh*te left-back. I wouldn't put Rougvie there, as he did play well now and then.

We're spoiled for choice when it comes to strikers - as well as Mayes, Fleck, Mitchell and Livingstone, we could have Hales, Hatelely, Smethurst, Aylott...the list goes on.

Got to agree about the dodgy Jocks - never noticed how many there were till you pointed that out! One more, Tommy Hughes, Bonetti's understudy towards the late 60's - seemed to let in five goals every time he played.

Sharon Wood would get in my side at right back although admittedly he did do slightly better once Hollins brought in Clarke and Wood moved into midfield. I don't think that was genius on Hollins's part, it was more that he was desperate to get Wood as far away fro, our goal as possible! (actually I think Wood only got a recall due to umpteen injuries and suspensions but he did well when he came back)

Good thread BB. Bet you won't be able to sleep thinking of this lot.

Beasant

G.Wilkins Nutton Sitton Hall

Jasper De Lucas Murphy

Mayes Mitchell Nicholls

Jasper, Murphy and Hall would get in my squad, at least - in fact, I'd put Hall at RB, G Wilkins at LB and Jasper at CB instead of Nutton, purely for his performance in the Sunderland game.

I think you have to have made a particularly nightmarish contribution to qualify for this XI

I tried this and stopped at GK. Couldn't go any further.

It has to be Les Fridge. Has to be.

Other names i will throw in, most already mentioned...

Dale Jasper ( i was there for the semi)

John McNaught

Sharon

John Coady

Peter Nicholas

Steve Livingstone (to think we swapped him for Soxy)

My cousin always tells me about David Stride but im far too young to remember.

Of a more recent vintage i would have to plump for De Lucas and Kezman (minus Barca at home)

I never thought Jerry Murphy was too bad btw. But i was eleven.

I could think of 200 players above Gronks who would deserve to go in a nightmare XI.

He wasnt great no doubt about that but we have had soooooo many worse.

And Plokoon points out, he is above the law anyway for THAT goal.
