Worst Rovers signing ever?

Kevin Davies takes some beating but a few other worth a mention

Barry Ferguson for crying back off to Scotland because basically he wasn’t as good as he Souness or us thought 

Matty Holmes , completely the wrong signing for a team that’s just won the league sent out all the wrong messages 

Danny Murphy , possibly the most disappointing signing of all time 

Bradley Orr , complete twat sorry for language but the word fits him perfectly 

 

The Matty Holmes one always felt like a kick in the teeth - a top-class centre-half and creative midfielder were all we really lacked at that time. Would have made us much more competitive in Europe and helped build on the initial success. Instead we got - at best - a squad backup player.

Bump to the thread.

I was down in Bristol last weekend at a family party.

My cousin is a big Bristol City fan.

He was mentioning to me a podcast that some fans do down there, called ''One Stream in Bristol''

https://onestreaminbristol.libsyn.com/

Similar to our very own BRFCS podcast @Herbie6590🙌 and brought my attention to a couple he thought I'd like/be interested in.

1. Frank Fielding (a mate of mine, I went to school with Frank)

26:50 onwards to about 31:42 (interesting early Venkys era)

2. The infamous Bradley Orr

https://onestreaminbristol.libsyn.com/a-cider-with-bradley-orr

1:44:50 onwards (some very interesting claims/statements, particularly against Givet and Nzonzi, plus Henning Berg....oh and Shebby Singh)

Having had the chance to listen to both now, worth a listen.

To save some time, time stamps for both are.

Pity the snowball thrower didn't throw the cricket ball.

The Bradley Orr link was very interesting. Goes to show there are two sides to every story. 

Absolutely, I went in with pure skepticism and whilst some things are obviously a touch revisionist, I can see where he's coming from and the mercenary aspect of that team that got relegated.

The trickle down effect of toxic leadership from Jerome/Kentato/SEM or whoever was pulling the strings at that time.

Orr was a player out of his depth ability wise, but others with far greater ability (see N'Zonzi and Givet) let the side down as much if not more so.

Nice for him to acknowledge that he knew when he was giving the interview, that he was burning his bridges with the fans. Amazing loyalty from him to Kean when you think about it.

Just listened to the rest of the podcast there. Orr comes across well, considering I used to hate his guts. I’d imagine there’s a lot of interesting stories to be told from that era. As you say, the toxic atmosphere and general air of incompetence must have made for a grim workplace.
