Worst football moves

I remember Liam Rosenoir left Fulham to go Reading citing it as increasing his England chances.

2 2's now Reading get relegated man England hopes done.

well by that same logic,

all those players who went to Chelsea are laughing.

and for the most part they all remained full international players for their countries.

Half the signings Ranieri made the season Abramovic took over...

I still laugh at Joe Cole (Yet commend his bravery going abroad). The gas on this forum to sign him when his Chelsea contract was up was HILARIOUS.

All of these people made big money moves with intentions of starting and being in the team long term (at the beggining) in addition to massive wages

Alan smith was bought for 7m to play a squad role in a team that had included 30m Wayne Rooney and Ruud Van Nistelrooy, not to mention a young Ronaldo, Scholes, Keane, Giggs

Got badly injured a few times and game time was hampered, but with Smith it was a case of playing his role at United tbh

Every player who signs for a club, aspires to ve in the first 11 once established and given a chance,

I haven't got the figures here but, I'd imagine Chelsea signed 20+ players in that era. If they all expected to be starters they're idiots.

And anyway the argument of "most of chelsea's star signings" must have been in jest anyway, coz in reality if we sat down and looked at the numbers most of the players signed in the Roman era made a significant contribution and won things.

In short, the players Blackpool sign to be squad players will be of a certain quality and price. The players Spurs buy to be squad players will be a certain price and quality and the players Chelsea sign to be Squad players will be a certain price and quality,

United have a 20 odd goal (last season) squad player wasting away on the bench this season.

However if you ask anyone they'll tell you Berbatov did that right thing by leaving Spurs.

It was kinda a factual jest.

But you can't tell me that for £50 mill, I expect to be a squad player.

Alan Smith = Lucky to be at a top level club, despite his intentions, was never going to be a first teamer for very long, and has a medal to show for it

Wayne Bridge, SWP, Scott Parker etc, all players who had real chances of playing for England and could or should have been playing for top 5/6 teams

Berbatov made the right move for himself but Ferguson made the wrong move in signing him

I disagree with the Berbatov talk

Made the step up without all the expectations being piled on him, played an important role in the title triumph, just a bit lost now

How many players did they sign for £50 million, and how many of them ended up squad players?

Fair point.

Not necessarily £50 mill, but stories like Torres happen too often at Chelsea. Another that comes in mind is Shevchenko and maybe Crespo.

Do you think these players signed just to be a squad player or have a team built around them?
