Now the is time for action in the the transfer window where players are bought in an attempt to modify the team and produce results. But it always doesn't work that way : players don't settle, tactics fail and it all comes down to b termed as a WORST TRANSFER. Here's our top 10 list


Disclaimer:Most of the facts mentioned here are accurate. In case any stat is not correct, it is intended for good humour!



10. JOHAN ELMANDER :



When you are a striker you're primary aim is to score goals n assist a few. Elmander being a striker had to score to prove his class. He contributed to many a chances but sadly didn't score many. Though he fought like a lion on the field with excellent aerial strength but what about GOALS ???? Bolton bought him to play alongside K.DAVIS but the Swedish failed to do his job - Only 5 goals and 2 assists from 30 games.



9.ANDY JOHNSON :



Bought from Everton for £10.5m pounds at a time when bobby Zamora was not not performing, Fulham needed the services of Johnson to deliver for them. But both the strikers lacked the quality and Fulham were saved by some consistent goal scoring by D.Murphy and C.Dempsey. He was already familiar with the English game but somehow could not strike the right chord with Fulham.



8. ANDERSON DECO :



It all started as planned: Deco scored a screamer on his Chelsea debut, at home to Pompey in the August sunshine, but it was quickly downhill after that. An injury occurred and he was not in the limelight for about a month. It seemed that his touch and sense of passing was gone post injury and needed more time to settle :The result a favourite on the bench. There is talk that Jose Mourinho wants to bring him to Internazionale (I doubt this), and no Chelsea fans would mind that, as long as their club made back some of the £8m spent on bringing Deco to the Bridge from Barcelona.


7. ANDREA DOSSENA:



Rafa had his eyes on this Udinese left back and was thought to be an ideal replacement for J.Riise who served Anfield for 7 years. He started his campaign with full 90 min starts but couldn't interpret Rafa's message. Thus Rafa had to play Aurelio on his position.
Though Dossena made substitute appearances in the later half of the season and scored some remarkable goals , most memorable being against Real Madrid and Manchester United, he didn't look synchronised with the team. Dossena has recently voiced his desire to move back to Italy and Juventus are interested to sign the Left back. Rafa may well consider the oppurtunity to sell him so as to increase the small transfer kitty the Americans provided him with.


6. DAVE KITSON :



This youngster was never considered good enough to be a professional player and quit professional football between the ages of 17- 20. But after all the drama he went through he delivered the goods for Reading and then Stoke snatched him. He failed to be a regular under Tony Pulis's side at a time when Faye and Sidibe were injured. Pulis instead opted for a lone striker in the form of R.Fuller. Its time for this young man to remember his glorious years (17-20) and take steps towards a possible retirement.



5. GIOVANI DOS SANTOS :



At such a young age of 18 yrs this Mexican was bought to assist the strikers in his favourite favourite CAM position. A few starts and many a minutes later
G DOS SANTOS became G WHO IS SANTOS ???
Wasted his spell at Tottenham and lately is on loan to lower division side Ipswich town!
WHAT A WASTE !




4. JOEY BARTON :


(The pic shown here is just to better his image!!!)

This young lad knows the English Police better than Football officials . Always enjoyed fame for the wrong reason and did hardly anything while on the pitch. As he was surrounded by controversies Newcastle believed they could capitalise on a low transfer fee and get him.

BUT WHY DO YOU BUY HIM ?????

Have a look at his career stats
MAN CITY Goals : 15 Assaults: 150
NEWCASTLE Goals : 2 Assaults: 20



3. DIMITAR BERBATOV :



Before the Ronaldo -MAD rid saga there was the BERBA- United saga. Man United were chasing the ex- Levski Sofia ex- Bayer Leverkusen Tottenham player for about two years. HE scored goals and assisted many but always looked aloof from the game. God knows what was he thinking. Just used to stand there, never made an attempt to pressurize defenders and never struggled for the ball. Stood there hoping for a miracle to get the ball back.
The four tome Bulgarian player of the year DIDN'T LEAVE A CHOICE for Sir Alex on who is going to start alongside Rooney: HIM OR TEVEZ. As a result the very hardworking Argentine was left warming the benches on cold English afternoons. Tevez clearly showed his displeasure but Sir Alex is no Mourinho to sell his most pricely catch( Shevchenko) for a few million less!
He IS GOOD BUT DEFINITELY NOT worth £30.75m



2. DAVID BENTLEY :


(Seen here in happier times)
Seems like Tottenham have a legacy of flop transfers.
Had a wonderful season with Blackburn , he and Pedersen provided tempting balls to the strikers. Transferred when Tottenham needed a winger, Bentley would have been that perfect one !!! But no he just wanted to be a FLOP and no one except him is to blame. Has great potentials and comes with a hefty price tag . He had to give away his position to Lennon who just took snatched the chance and was a regular afterwards.
Coincides his surname with famous car manufactures BENTLEY CARS but not the quality that the cars come with!!!!!!! WHATS IN A NAME ????



1. ROBBY KEANE :




The undisputed Numero Uno of worst transfers - KING SIZE FLOP!
Nobody wants to debate on the this move.
Moved by Rafa into Anfield in order to provide a dream partner for El Nino but things didn't quite work out and soon the astounding dream partnership was to be over when Gerrard's new role being a striker was a perfect hit.
Steven Gerrard combined well with Torres and they scored many goals between them - that meant end of the road for Keane's Anfield dreams.
David Blaine is reportedly devastated at the news that his world record of SPENDING 48 DAYS IN A BOX DOING NOTHING is broken by KEANE!!!!! ( IN A FIELD)



As the headline suggests for Keane : HAVE BOOTS WILL TRAVEL !!!
VIRGIN AIRWAYS TOOK THIS OPPORTUNITY TO ADVERTISE THEIR AIRLINES :
A LIVERPOOL TO LONDON RETURN FASTER THAN ROBBIE KEANE (NOW THAT'S FAST!!!!)
