    The Rasiak thing still makes me furious.

    Reyes was a bit of a flop.

    He started off well too, which was the odd thing.

    As opposed to these days when we don't even bother panic buying a striker ;)

    Think Borini and Marin can probably be added to the list now.

    We paid 7 million notes for Seth Johnson.

    England international Seth Johnson. Unbelievable.

    Yeah, Reyes was frustrating. He was flying for 18 months, then bottled it after the Neville's kicked him out of a game at OT. Shame, very talented player but didn't have the mental strength needed. Still, didn't cost as much as he might have done, less than 10m all told.

    Im a furious other party. Im furious that we gave away a striker who scored one in two and you ruined him.

    Although im more furious that it was the first thing in a chain of events that led to us having phil brown as manager.

    Owen was injuries, he was the best striker we have had in a long time before the injuries slowed him up. Can't really say he faded, his body packed up more like.

    Those others you mention were just hyped - there were never "great".

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realise half of them are stupider than that

    Another big flop for Chelsea was Winston Bogarde

    When Rasiak left us to go to Southampton he went back to being a goal machine, so we didn't ruin him. We just exposed his limits.

    8m for Seth Johnson Derby deserved a smack in the face.

    Massimo Taibi as well. Paving the way for De Gea.

    Hush you ponce

    Derby spent 3m, we spent 7m. Either way, 11m total for him is a disgrace

    Barthez - joke of a keeper

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    He was brilliant for us. A proper forest gump. you just told him to run and he ran.

    Its not his fault Oleary was spending monopoly money and he picked up a bad injury (an injury that stopped his second spell with us which, again, wasnt actually a bad run of games).

    Ahh Taibi, great memories. I think Chris Sutton scored his only goal for us against him :D

    Anderson's quite a big money flop. He'll vanish soon (see also: Kleberson)

    Re: Ando
    Won't sell him for that much less than we bought him for, though that trio of him, Nani and Hargreaves looks like being fairly horrible business now.

    Lots of Fergie flop classics missing from the list - Cruyff, Porborsky, Bellion, Djemba-Djemba...

    Hargreaves - now we're cooking!

    Definitely a big flop. How many games did he play in the end? He was awesome while in Germany.

    It's quite obvious from his whole demeanor on the pitch, that he doesn't give a flying shit about Chelsea and didn't really want to go there. I'm sure he hinted as much not long after be left Liverpool, saying it wasn't his descision to leave.
    That's why after we rejected Chelsea's interest and said we didn't welcome anymore he handed in a transfer request? He wanted out because of how far we managed to fall in the 18 months of Benitez's last year and Hodgson's short-lived reign. I don't doubt he would have probably preferred to go somewhere other than Chelsea, but he had the opportunity there to join a team still competing at the top and he wanted to take it. Our hands were forced. Incidentally newly signed Suarez wasn't too happy when he left as he got told Torres would be staying. Tbf I don't blame him for going, and I am slightly saddened to see him as the shadow of his former self that he is.

    We did get a great deal given his patchy form and injury record in his last 12 months and our declined reputation, especially now in hindsight. However obviously we messed it all up by signing Carroll, who then spent half the time injured and only scored 2 goals in 11 games. Why we didn't just stick Dirk Kuyt up front I still don't know; sure he didn't excel as a striker but much better than blowing that much on Carroll, which ironically served to damage his own development and confidence.

    Continuing on the topic of 'flops', how about Jonathan Woodgate to Real for 13.5m? Missed all of his first season, scored an own goal and got sent off when he finally made his debut and only played 9 games in 3 years.

    She dives for cheese pasties

    39 in all comps over 4 seasons, had a decent catchy song though.

    What was he? 20 million? Felt sorry for him actually, as he seems like a decent sort. Hard-working, non-egotistical player. Less than 10 games a season though - that's awful! I'll bet most of those were off the bench too!
