He still has to be one of the most useless signings ever.
Bit harsh when we have had:

Derek Townsley, Ian McGuckin, Lee Jarman, Peter Fear, Antrobus, Simon Hackney, Doudou, Grebis, Jamie Slabber, Andy Campbell, Mark E'Beyer, Scott Gemmill, Liam Horsted, Danny Morgan, Neville Roach, Rob Davies, James Dobson, Michael Husbands, Levi Reid, Ricky Appleton and Phil Trainer.

I'm sure there are many many more that weren't as bad as Smith.

Derek Townley doesn't deserve to be in that list. He wasn't great but he was comfortably better than the rest in that list.

Phil Trainer wasn’t really terrible, he was just a basic Conference level player, which is where we were. I don’t remember quite a lot of those!

A bit of an odd selection when it comes to ‘rubbish players’, that. Some undoubtedly qualify but others are forgettable nonentities who never really committed many crimes in an Oxford shirt. Can we really say that James Dobson or Danny Morgan appeared enough to fall into the ‘worse than Sam Smith’ category? Not really.

The go-to terrible players are surely Mike Salmon, Emiliano Diaz, Lee Jarman, Peter Fear, Ray Gaston, Steve Anthrobus and Neville Roach.

I think 'that' free kick puts trainer into the poor category in peoples minds , he was an ok player at that level.

He joins a long list.
