X - Most forgettable player. Remember Robbie Threlfall? How about Adam Nowland? No me neither!
These players don't necessarily have to be bad just utterly unremarkable.
Y - Worst ever result.
A strange one, which match will this squad play in, would they make it better or worse, this can mean worst for a number of reasons;
For example the loss to Staines was simply embarrassing, the 3-1 loss to Vale saw Thompson's miss, the 7-2 loss to Dale was bad because it was a derby and effectively sent us on our way to missing out on promotion and the 7-0 loss the Grimsby was just........
Z - Worst ever board member. This man/woman will be in charge of our nightmareish team, who will take the reigns and lead us to failure?
Brian Kennedy, Mark Maguire, Jim Melrose, Leonard Curtis Solicitors, Mary Gibbons, Tony Evans, Lord Snape, Spencer Fearn, Ryan McKnight!
X: I am going for Barry Conlon - simply because he was an utter disgrace as a professional footballer and as a man during his time with us.
Y: Posh 2 County 1 - Wembley 1992. Danny did so much for this club and he deserved at least one Wembley win. This result just shades the 94 Burnley defeat, because when Kev equalised in 92 I really thought we'd have them in extra time, Keith Coates' commentary summed it up best as that winner flew in over Neil's head with that heartfelt outpouring: "Ohhh noooo!..."
The Burnley one was a slow dismantling of our chances as the game wore one, thanks to Ell*ray and that cheating pr**k McMinn, so when they grabbed the winner when we were down to nine men it wasn't quite as gutting as Charlery's winner. I often wonder how we'd have fared in Division One under Danny, and how the future would have panned out for the club.
Z: Dave Jolley - for his involvement in the Danny dismissal. I can't tag Brendan with that one because of the success he helped bring us.

possibly either adie mike or vas kalageracos for most forgettable - they weren't just some temporary sop loan signing - we paid decent money for both, and then they both fell into a hole. possibly the same hole, now concreted over with 'scfc money pit' scratched into the surface with a stick.
you've thrown me a curveball there gazz. for years and years the two play off finals were the most gutted i've been after games. most goal-mental celebration ever after kev's late equaliser cos we knew we were in the ascendancy and would do them in extra time. in '94 it was looking at the despondent players and thinking that after three successive failed cracks at the playoffs, we wouldn't keep the team together. of course preecey went over the summer, and another few months after that, big kev had gone as well.
...add to that, i was buzzing after we won at alfreton last season - i thought we were going to stay up...then the following saturday, we put in the flattest, most dismal performance against dartford, and suddenly we were relying on two away wins and other results going for us to avoid dropping to our lowest ever level.
...but the winner has to be moss rose, 2005. a moors fan on the NLF asked if them beating us was our lowest ever result, and a leamington fan popped up with the suggestion it might have been the 7-0 at grimsby. i replied thusly:
"no. grimsby were a decent league club, up in the championship with us. the 7-0 was an awful result, but it in no way compared to...
...6-0, at macclesfield, on boxing day 2005. macc was previously a club we had only ever played in friendlies. they were the local non-league milkmen and they got into the bottom division for -i think- our first season in the championship. they managed a promotion, and hilariously, their local league derby in 1998-99 was man city!
we were well into our slide by the time we faced them in the league that day; but it was our first meeting at the same level. although we were bottom of the league we took a couple of thousand there...and were absolutely smashed by a side that we'd never even considered 'local rivals' - just 'local'. i've seen some drubbings inflicted on us.........a lot of drubbings inflicted on us...but that was probably the most demoralising. it was an immediate sacking job with the manager - probably the angriest i've ever seen a county crowd; and there was no way back from that."
snape. no money, all mouth. exactly the sort of entitled, pompous kn*bend you do not want speaking for your club. your list really is a hall of shame, fudge, but with some of the others, there were positive bits undermined by the negatives. i struggle to think of any redeeming features about lord freelunch. the others in your list all contributed to this, but ultimately, he left us failing at our lowest ever level. will not be well remembered.

X: Using fudgie's 'utterly unremarkable' criterion', I am going to go with Matthew Grieve, who turned out for a few fixtures in early 2011 during our last League season. Apparently, he featured in two games at EP - the 1-5 reverse at the hands of Gillingham and the 3-3 draw-snatched-from-the-jaws-of-victory against Rotherham - both of which I can recall in some detail, other than anything whatsoever about him (and I see that he contributed an own goal to the Rotherham cause, too!)!
Y: Like exile, my worst-ever game was against Macc. Mine, however, was the 1-4 home-defeat - also early in 2011 - which, to my mind at the time, made us near-certainties for the drop into Non-League land. Losing to local rivals - and, worse still, out-of-form ones that played down the road from where I lived - was a bitter pill to swallow... made bitterer still two days later, when Father Macc passed away after a long illness. I could not imagine a match before, since or in the future whose sad memories and associations might run that one anywhere close.
Z: Brian Kennedy for me. His arrival signalled the end of the Club as a going/growing concern, and its reduction to the status of mortally-wounded animal. I am still hoping for, but, with each passing year, not easily anticipating, a miracle cure...
X - Of all the players that received a mention I have to give the honours to Matthew Grieve, a player I completely forgot existed, all nominees worthy of winning it but no one personifies forgettable like Grieve!
Y - Another tie this time, of all the nominees I have to pick from I've got to give it to the 4-1 defeat to Macc, not only was it a heavy home defeat to local rivals, it was one of the bigger nails in the relegation coffin that year coming just 1 week after the impressive 2-1 win Vs. Promotion chasing Bury!
Z - Again, a tie, I have to go for Kennedy, the man who started a string if jokers, time wasters and idiots!
