TTU Awards 2009/2010: Flop of the Season

Posted by on May 30, 2010 in TTU Awards | 2 Comments

As Csaba Abrahall bemoans in this month’s WSC, Tamás Priskin’s £1.7m move from Watford to Ipswich last August seemed ill-fated from the off; the ungainly Magyar arriving days after reserve team prospect Jordan Rhodes’s unpopular departure to Huddersfield. Watford website BHaPPY described him as the “ugly duckling finally [who had] matured into a swan” a year ago, but such praise has been less than forthcoming at Portman Road where Priskin’s run in the team coincided with Ipswich’s terrible start to the season. A forgettable loan spell at QPR followed once Roy Keane lost patience; this league is replete with flops, but Tamás wins TTU’s Golden Raspberry for his brace of bungles.

Honourable mentions to: Freddie Sears, whose star has fallen terribly since the start of the season when much was expected after some notable cameos at the end of the previous Premier League season; Sean St Ledger, whose failure to settle on Teesside might just have bankrupted Preston; Yann Kermorgant (need we say more?). The final word goes to Ched Evans. Ched who? Exactly.

    It should not be forgotten that Evans costs Sheffield United a cool £3 million. On the managerial front, Alan Irvine, Darren Ferguson, Brendan Rodgers and Roy Keane are perhaps the highest profile flops although the latter was given the second half of the campaign to bring about modest improvement. Also worth a mention is the Lizzie Greenwood-Hughes emails slot on The Football League Show. Practically unwatchable.
