    The fuck? He was ace for leeds!
    For about 10 games (OK it might have been longer but wasn't more than a season or so). Then faded badly. He may have been sold though, my addled mind isn't what it was.

    Amir Zaki had that amazing Bale style purple batch a few seasons ago..
    To successfully pull off the ironic trolling move, you have to have not recently already posted number of similar things deadly seriously, otherwise it all just blends into one.
    Advice from the master himself, one day ill get there.

    Darren Huckerby made him look like a legend.

    Having Wiki'd Yeboah, seems he was George Graham'd so I might be being a bit harsh.

    I'm assuming '93 signifies a date of birth?

    We have had a lot of strikers flop on us, Caseraghi was another.

    George Weah at Chelsea is another one. Chelsea do not have a good record.

    How about The Razzy Yak @ Spurs? Though I did like him! Admittedly, not even close to the level of some of the names mentioned above.

    George Weah was only on loan for a few months and did OK, not nearly as bad as some of the others.

    Casiraghis only Chelsea goal :D

    Rasiak was total total pants, but it was only 1m in the end and was always an emergency buy.

    Postiga would be a better shout from a Spurs point of view. He was supposed to be our super striker foreign signing. Total rubbish. And of course Bent and Bentley, although the former went for profit in the end amazingly.

    Never said he did, just remember him being great for a wee while before heading off to UAE or wherever.

    @reddevil93 Pav was a great player - not a flop. Just the manager never really rated him, but scored a load of great goals.

    Arshavin, maybe?

    Who was that really bad one for the Arsenal recently? Squillaci? What was that all about?

    Pav certainly wasn't the Berbatov replacement we needed, but he wasn't stupid money and did ok.

    I think we're in danger of just having a discussion about average players now.

    Up until the madness of the last year and a half our record signing and biggest flop was Mike Sheron. Yes I'm that old.
