Tommy Forecast is definitely not our worst loan signing because he actually kept a clean sheet and won 1 game while playing for us.

Here are some terrible loan signings (mainly because of how utterly useless they were) - Danny Carlton, Nicky Rizzo, Javan Vidal, Arnaud Mendy, Josh Magennis, Ben Wright, Tony Thorpe, Simon Heslop, Tomi Ameobi, Luke McCarthy, Malvin Kamara & Anthony Pulis

Wayne Henderson was very good.

Andy Todd single handedly kept us away from relegation when he was here, unbelievable player.

Tommy Forecast may as well have been single handed, it's almost funny how bad he is.

Neil woods, beasant and Todd as the best. Was Ivano on loan to start as well (les) ???

I understand Brodie but Christ on a bike there's been worse. Forecast would say.

And Nichols wasn't that bad, got us a pen to beat palace


In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

Steve Kabba not got a mention yet. He was great during his time here although obviously it went a bit sour.

Tomi Ameobi is the worst for me. In his game against Barnet he stood out as the worst player in arguably the worst match I've ever seen.

Quoted from psgmariner
Have we done this one before?

I went for Andy Todd and Tommy Forecast.

Couldn't agree more. Todd wasn't just the best loan signing, in my opinion he was the best player we've had in a town shirt since I've been watching(last 25 years).

Arnaud Mendy was exceptionally shite - he only lasted 45 minutes in Newell's last game in charge against Rochdale and looked absolutely hopeless. Certainly a worse loan signing than Forecast. Lincoln can't be any good if he's playing for them on a regular basis.

Andy Todd was superb and hard to think of a better one.

Nicky Featherstone was a bit excrement along with many others already mentioned.

Patterson was pretty good too.

Beasant and Todd the best. Featherstone, Devitt 2nd time and Forecast the worst.

Andy Todd and Dave Beasant for loanees only but Joe Waters and Super Clive came here on loan first so they'd  top both I reckon.

As for the worst, well apart from the infamous Mr Fourpast there were umpteen during Mike Newell/Neil Woods' managerial stints here.
