Players that showed so much promise that really didnt make it!

Apologies if this topic already exists. Ramdomly looked up Osei Sankofa on Wiki to see how he was getting on and was shocked to see he is now playing for Boreham Wood in the conference south. Cant believe its the same guy who played against Man U in the prem only a few years ago. Got me trying to thinking of other players who showed alot of promise, James Walker who some fans were tipping as the next darren bent is now playing for Dover Athletic. Is there any others?

    Only game v Mansfield in League Cup. Remember in the warm up before the game he tried flicking the ball backwards onto his back letting it roll down his neck. I was well impressed as you never saw such fancy dannery in those days. Maybe thats why he was never seen again.

    Jamie Martin - one of the best young strikers I've seen in our colours. Apparently went off the rails. Mark Ricketts always seemed a decent ball playing CH who wasn't slow. James Walker was one who might have made a better living as a footballer had he not decided he was a striker. He was a decent player but not prolific upfront.

    The Van Nguyen or whatever that Vietnamese bloke was called.

    He was hyped to be the next big thing as I remember.

    I saw Grant Basey a couple of times when he came into the first team and he looked very solid, but he's ended up wandering around Barnet & Wycombe.

    Scott Parker could have ended up in this category if he didn't go out on loan to Norwich. He truly came back a guy determined to knuckle it down and get going. The transformation was immediate. A lucky escape IMHO.

    Who's the kid who went on loan to Inter Milan ? Winger I think...

    paul murrey i think was anorthern ireland lad see him in a few reserve games at selhurst

    I think all these players eventually find their natural level. Sometimes they are simply not as good as we hope they will be. Lisbie and macdonald have both had decent careers. Walker was unlucky as he has had health issues.

    Moutaouakil , Youga and Simon Walton spring to mind as players I thought would be very good for us.
