A trio of Wednesday players, past and present, have made their way into the Daily Mail’s ‘Worst strikers to have played in the Premier League’ list.

Darko Kovacevic, Gerald Sibon, and current striker Francis Jeffers have all been included in the top 50 list for their performances in England’s top flight.

Jeffers, of course, finds his way in there mainly thanks to his unsuccessful stint at Arsenal, but also thanks to his unsuccessful return to Everton on loan and also at Blackburn.

Dutchman Sibon came with high expectation during his first year at the club, in the Premier League, but failed to live up to them.

He did make amends to some extent when he got relegated with Wednesday, probably finding his level in the Championship before moving back to his native Holland.

How his strike partner at the time, Gilles De Bilde, who arrived at S6 for a higher sum of money, didn’t get in the list instead of, or as well as, Gerald, I don’t know.

Kovacevic’s inclusion seems a tad harsher, arriving at Wednesday from Red Star Belgrade alongside Dejan Stefanovic, he scored four goals in just eight starts in the blue and white stripes.

His stint at S6 wasn’t long, but his skills were there for all to see as he went on to play for Juventus and Lazio following his departure from Hillsborough.

Former Newcastle United man Stephane Guivarc’h came top of the list, while Steve Marlet, Ade Akinbiyi and Tomas Brolin are also up there.
