Hmm, JJ’s getting a lot of stick at the moment, hardly surprising after that miss. But does he deserve it? I don’t think so. He’s certainly not the worst footballer in the Premiership. How do I know? Well, here’s a list of 10 worse midfielders, for startersâ€¦
Is Jermaine Jenas the worst footballer in the Premiership? No â€“ here are 10 midfielders who make him look like Pele continuedâ€¦
10 Matt Holland (Charlton Athletic)
Look up the word ‘journeyman’ in a dictionary and you’ll find a picture of Matt ‘Matty’ Holland. Every aspect of his game is painfully average.
9 Tugay (Blackburn Rovers)
Scores one cracking fluke per season â€“ apart from that, does nothing much.
8 Gaizka Mendieta (Middlesbrough)
Used to be good, when he played in Spain. Been shit in England though. Capable of making the odd neat pass but generally a waste of space.
7 Fabio Rochemback (Middlesbrough)
The worst Brazilian midfielder I’ve ever seen.
6 Darren Fletcher (Man Utd)
Runs around like a rabbit with mixy. Not fit to lace Roy Keane’s boots.
5 Andy van der Meyde (Everton)
Abject Andy should give up now.
4 Kieran Richardson (Man Utd)
Fast and not unskilful, but he’s also the greediest and most frustrating player in the world.
3 Albert Luque (Newcastle Utd)
The perfect example of Newcastle’s flawed transfer policy. Good in Spain, woeful in England.
2 Eric Djemba-Djemba (Aston Villa)
The new Cantona (hmm) now languishes in Villa’s reserves.
1 Michael Brown (Fulham)
The master of the horror tackle. Absolutely no class.
There – I’d take Jenas over any of them. Do you agree?
