13 Players You Forgot Played In This Season's Premier League

13 Players You Forgot Played In This Season's Premier League

As the dust starts to settle on another Premier League campaign all the awards have been handed out and the players can get a much needed rest. The stand out performers of the season are obvious to most who kept a passing interest in the league. Salah, De Bruyne & Kane grabbed the majority of the headlines over the 38 games, but what of the players that we forgot even played in the 2017/18  campaign? Surely they need some forum by which their forgettable contributions can be championed. Well here it is.

Boaz Myhill

When the biggest highlight/lowlight of your season is robbing a taxi in Barcelona, you know you've fucked up. The 35-year-old Welshman made one appearance for the Potters in October against Leicester in a 1-1 draw.

Jason Puncheon

Jason 'he shits when he wants' Puncheon, ironically injured himself whilst trying to injure Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne in a Premier League tie on New Year's Eve. This was his most notable contribution in all his ten appearances for the Eagles this season.

Kevin Wimmer

Wimmer moved to Stoke City in the summer for £18 million from Spurs and failed to impress in his 17 appearances in the PL. The centre back has also had to face the ignominy of being put on a special fitness regime by Stoke boss Paul Lambert.

Dean Whitehead

36-year-old Whitehead managed four Premier League appearances but if you had told me he has been five years retired I would be more inclined to believe the latter.

Stephen Ireland

Ireland played four times for Stoke (we really could've made this post entirely of Stoke players) in this campaing following a broken leg sustained in May 2016.




Wilfried Bony

After a breakout season at Swansea in 2013/14, Bony has faded into insignificance this season. He appeared 15 times for the Swans (seven as a sub) and scored two goals, but didn't make much of an impact on football fans as Swansea were relegated on the final day of the season.

Jon Walters

Another Irishman who suffered with injuries this season, Walters underwent keyhole surgery on his knee in January having been been troubled with cartilage problems all season. The 34-year-old made three Premier League appearances for the Clarets this season. Hopefully the Irish striker can have a more memorable outing next season.

Hal Robson-Kanu

It must feel like a long time since Euro 2016 for Robson-Kanu. The Welsh striker  managed two goals in 20 appearances for the relegated Baggies, though 13 of those appearances came as a substitute.


Leonardo Ulloa

Premier League winner Leonardo Ulloa found appearances hard to come by at Brighton this term. The Argentine made 10 appearances for the Seagulls, but to my mind he only existed in Leicester's successful 2015/16 campaign.

Lucas Moura

The most high profile name on this list, the Brazil midfielder arrived in Spurs to much fanfare, but the former PSG man failed to make much of an impression in the league only making four appearances as Spurs finished third.

Ibrahim Afellay/Bojan Krkic/Saido Berahino

Instead of writing out each Stoke player separately I've decided to merge Afellay Krkic and Berahino into one large, forgettable conglomerate. Combined they made 22 apps in the league though the majority of those are  substitute appearances. You'd have to feel sorry for Stoke fans.
