….excluding ITFC.

I'll start with Danny Drinkwater.

Signed by Chelsea for £35m on a 5 year contract.

22 appearances, 1 goal.

On loan at Villa and just been replaced by Henri Lansbury.

Tamplin on twitter is priceless comedy gold. Before their game yesterday posts video of upbeat players singing and dancing on team bus before game, captioned "we have such a great team spirit, great energy, we're going places"

A few hours later.... Tamplin's apologizing for the performance and saying it's unacceptable

There was a time when a Winston Bogarde was far and away the worst, now all big teams have their own Bogarde at any given time.

Alexis Sanchez to Man U was awful for cost to output

I'm blocked but always see things pop up in screenshots, he wants to be known as Romford Wizards now or something?

For the original thread, Iago Aspas, Andy Carroll, Mario Balotelli and Christian Benteke at Liverpool!

Juan Sebastián Verón, £28 million which was similar to a Pogba price now.
Roberto Soldado Tottenham £26 million just 6 goals in his debut season.
Tomas Brolin, Leeds, only 19 apprarences and most terrible, a fading star.
Lee Bowyer, Ipswich. Dark times.
And Wilson Bogarde... The original and best petulant obnoxious bench warmer clocking up £40000 weekly wages on the bench. Just read that he wasnt alloweed to train with the others and flew in for training from home in Amsterdam! From the Times:

Outside Formula One, nobody has got so rich by doing laps as Winston Bogarde. For much of his four years at Chelsea, Bogarde was so unwanted that he trained alone. Claudio Ranieri disliked him being around other players and set the Dutchman a regimen of reporting early, doing 40 laps of the pitch and clearing off before group training began.

Bogarde moved back to Holland. He’d catch a red-eye from Schiphol airport, reach Chelsea’s practice ground — then near Heathrow — for just after 9am, run his laps and be back in Amsterdam for lunch. He says he earned more than £13m at Chelsea, for whom he played nine times. Sometimes the price of dead wood is higher than gold. Chelsea’s Bogarde problem is being repeated ever…

Reading signing Sone Aluko for £7.5M has to be one of the most bizarrely inflated transfer fees of recent years. Awful player
