 Worst Premiership Transfers
Topic Originator: GG Riva  
Date:   Tue 15 Sep 10:56

Although it is the Daily Mail and probably just one guy's opinion, I think this is a decent discussion topic:-

https://www.stadiumtalk.com/s/worst-transfers-premier-league-history-6caad174a33f48e2?utm_campaign=transferspremier-07943f0602994d29&utm_source=tab&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=dailymail-uk

A quick scan reveals that 22 clubs are mentioned, but Man U and Liverpool are well out in front with 10 and 9 nominations, respectively. Chelsea a distant 3rd with 5 candidates, so that these 3 clubs account for almost half of the total. I wonder why that is? Perhaps it's because these clubs have higher expectations, so a player who may have been regarded as decent at another club was deemed a failure at these clubs? Another thing I find annoying is the way lazy journalists in England only go back to 1992, as if football didn't exist before then.

I wonder if any players would have made the Top 50 if Scotland had been included? I have one outstanding candidate, but I'll keep my powder dry for the moment. :-)

Istvan Kozma used to regularly feature on these lists.He was voted Liverpool's worst ever midfielder in 2017 with 70% of the votes.In 2007 the Times voted him the 4th worst Premier League player ever. The worst was the infamous Ali Dia who was also a Souness signing.

Top 50 worst signings and no Ali Dia or William Prunier?

John Utaka deserves a shout (not for being a bad player but for having a phenomenally high wage that contributed to his club going into financial ruin). Likewise Seth Johnson, or Winston Bogarde who was training with the kids for the vast majority of his Chelsea contract?

Altidore was crap, no doubt - but he started games, made himself a bit of nuisance, and had some misfortune in front of goal. He was crap, but he's not the worst ever signing, not by a long shot.

How about Daniel Prodan for the Scottish version? Or even Rafael Faeces, or something like that, who was complete urine for the Sellick?

When Celtic had Tebily and Scheidt there were rumours they would sign David Weir from Hearts - giving them a backline of 'Weir Tebily Scheidt'.

How about one of ours? Noel Whelan? Lasted 3 mins on his debut and out injured. Six months of wasted wages later he was released.
