I rated Sam Ricketts if the truth be told. good, versatile player who's throw ins were like getting an extra few corners per game. 

Not a world beater by any measure, but could be trusted to work his damned hardest for the team. I miss players like this. 

Also, For all his mistakes (caused by his size and lack of pace more than a lack of effort) id put Paul Robinson in he same vain, he had passion and fight in him, something this team lacks.

Megson had good reason to be optimistic with those signings. Sean Davis was a classy player and Robbo and Sam were good professionals. Knight was a gamble but had been capped by England and potentially could have improved. But it wasn't to be and the injuries were a disaster - incredibly unlucky for all concerned.
I think that in the end we got VFM for Sam and possibly Robbo but my disappointment was not getting to watch Sean Davis play more - a great player with vision IMO and as good as Djorkieff on his day. And Knight never developed the ball skills to go with his physique.
But at the time, there was reason to be hopeful.

Have you really just suggested that Sean Davis was as good as (World Cup winning) Youri Djorkaeff?

Are you just doing this to get a reaction now, or what....?

Sean Davis was a decent player but nowhere near the quality of Youri in my opinion, i always thought we should have kept hold of Ricketts as well, he was a decent player who could play anywhere across the back four. We certainly could have done with him at certain points of last season,.
