9. Tomasz Frankowski
Frankowski was considered a good move by Glenn Hoddle when he was signed from Elche. The club had invested around € 1.4 million. Prior to signing for the Midlands side, Frankowski scored an impressive 115 goals in 173 games for Wisla Krakow before scoring 8 in 14 for Spanish side Elche.
Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to make any impact on Wolves. Unable to find the net once during his 16-game spell with the club, he soon earned the unenviable nickname of “the Pole without a goal” around Molineux.
8. Freddy Eastwood
How can we forget Freddy Eastwood? Freddy was on fire when he was playing for Southend. He was brought in with a lot of anticipation. Wolves thought they had landed themselves another star when Freddy Eastwood put pen to paper on a four-year deal at Molineux for £1.5m.
But when Freddy was handed over the jersey of the Wolves, his performance was dismal. The club held special mentoring sessions for Eastwood, but it resulted in futile. The player could score only 3 goals for the Wolves in the 31 appearances. This was absurd. Seeing this Mick handed him to Coventry only a year later.
7. Jamie O’ Hara
If we talk about the most disappointing performances, O’Hara’s name would feature that list for sure. Jamie was brought from Tottenham Hotspur. What was a much bigger news breaker was the fact that the club had invested around €5 million on the player.
When you invest such a big amount you want them to be loyal and play for the club with passion. The player appeared 17 times. He had some good performances. But his performances were not consistent.
6. Ray Hankin
Ray Hankin signed for Wolves in 1985, after his contract with Peterborough United was terminated for behavioural reasons. Wolves manager Tommy Docherty told him it was his last chance in football. He played eleven matches for them, scored one goal and Wolves were relegated. When he returned for the new season overweight, Wolves cancelled his contract.
5. Stefan Maierhofer
In the year 2009, Stefan Maierhofer was signed for € 1.8 million. When this news broke out, everybody criticised the decision. This was plenty amount for a team which is based in the Midlands. The only thing that the Manager of the Wolves thought could shut the mouth of the critics was the performance of Stephan.
But, he was very bad on-field apart from one match against Blackburn. He also suffered from an injury. People said that he has a hernia. He could score only one goal in the two years and was a disappointment for the club and the fans.
