3. 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 disappointment for the club and the fans.
2. Marlon Harewood
When Marlon Harewood was signed for Wolves it was been hyped much. He was considered as the best move and there were many articles on the media backing up this move.
But whenever Marlon entered the ground, he was lacking intent. He was lazy with his moves and failed to create even a minimal impact that was expected from him. Thus, the decision to buy him turned out to be a disaster for the Old Golds. In the Championship league, he failed to make appearances. He appeared five times for the Wolves and went goalless in all the occasions.
1. Roger Johnson
If we talk about the most underperformed players in the history of Wolverhampton, Roger Johnson would feature on the top of the list everytime. Roger was brought from Birmingham for around €5 million. He was soon handed over the captaincy. The club had good expectations from him. But soon, things turned out worse for them.
He appeared 72 times for the Wolves and the performance of the team dipped during this phase. Moreover, there was a division amongst the players. There was no unity. The fans and players blamed the boss Mick McCarthy for all of this.
But Roger was to be blamed equally for it. There were a lot of expectations from him. His behaviour at the club was also absurd. He came drunk in the training session after the 5-0 loss that Wolves suffered against Fulham. This should be considered the worst Wolves signings ever.
