He may have been a long way off greatness, but Potter still played a lot of his career in the Championship/towards the top of L1. Calling him a "lower league player" is a bit of a disservice.

Perhaps I was a bit unfair. He remained a technically proficient player. He just failed to reach the heights some of us had hoped for.

Tony Sheridan looked like a really exciting talent at Coventry when they were in the Premier League. Quickly ended up back in Ireland.

I remember watching him scoring a stunning goal for Shelbourne in the Cup against Sligo at the Showgrounds in the mid-90s when I was very young.

Despite the deleted posts, a change of thread title would seem judicious

It's still an unfortunate turn of phrase.

Keith O’Neill . Thought he would have made a real player. His body said otherwise.

Tommy Morrison.....oh they've changed the thread title now Confused

The converse of this is all the late developers we have who aren't rated that high as youngsters but then hit the heights later on. Wes was a classic example of this, nobody mentioned him too much at all under Trapp when he was being omitted. Of our current team all our best players at the moment - Doherty, Egan, Randolph Stevens all made a slow stuttering journey to the top. Hourihane too had to make his way up slowly , Coleman wasn't hyped as a youngster and nobody much was demanding Mcgoldrick be called up when they were all drooling over Hogan not long ago. 
That's each of our top Premier league players this season there whose careers have been a bit of a slow burn. Just seems to be the way Irish footballers make it these days, so makes up for the Conor Cliffords out there.

Yeah when he got that big move to Man U it seemed he would be our best player for years.

Stephen Carr is another. He did play about 40 games for us but never made it to 2002. He was the best right back in the epl for the previous 2 years and the year after....
Knee injuries ruined a big move for him as Man U and others were interested.
