4. Eggert Johnson

Wolves paid nearly £600,000 for the Icelandic midfielder from Hearts. He was Mick McCarthy’s last permanent signing as Wolves boss. Jonsson was lacklustre, seemed to be worried on the ball and was a weak link who was exploited time and time again by opposing teams. The midfielder played just seven times before being released from a contract that had two years remaining in 2013.

3. Steve Claridge

Claridge was signed from Leicester in 1998 and was expected to bring goals to the club. However, it never seemed like his heart was not in it. He spent just a few months at the club, making five league appearances and one in the FA Cup against Arsenal. He scored no goals in any of the games and quickly moved on to Portsmouth.

2. Robert Taylor

Robert Taylor is among the worst to have ever worn a gold shirt. He arrived from Manchester City in August 2000 for £1.5million, at the age of 29. He would make only 12 appearances in the next two years, eventually prompting the termination of his contract before short stays at several other clubs prior to retiring.

1. Roger Johnson

If we talk about the most underperformed players in the history of Wolverhampton, Roger Johnson would feature at 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.

Dishonourable mentions: Peter Zelem, Yannick Sagbo, Darren Anderton, Razak Boukari, Kaspas Gorkss, Tongo Doumbia, Jens Dowe, Rajiv Van La Parra, Joe Gallagher, etc
