The 50 worst transfers

The Times has put together a list of the 50 worst transfers to the Premiership and to nobody’s surprise, Newcastle United lead the list with 9 of the 50… almost 20%. Pfff. Chelsea go second with 7, most of them pre-Abramovic.

Some names that will bring a laugh:

For Newcastle, how about Stephane Guivarc’h, Hugo Viana, Jon Dahl Tomasson, Faustino Asprilla (I thought he was rather good, though), and Marcelino to name a few. Asprilla, what a talent, but a head case.

For Chelsea, Khalid Boulahrouz, Paul Furlong, Andriy Shevchenko, Adrian Mutu and Robert Fleck appear on the list.

Aston Villa (how they did not include Juan Pablo Angel is beyond me) and Arsenal are not spared their clangers, to see the entire list you can read it here.

You're a total moron. Tino was a god. Barcelona for starters. Debut against the smoggies, uefa cup heroics. Stop talking out of your cockney backside.

Asprilla was probably one of the best foreign imports of the 90s. Whoever wrote this is either too young to remmber or simply just a cretin.

I'd love to know how this doughnut can even publish kak like this!!!! during and Since the era of KK - Tino was possibly the best overseas player this leaque had seen for years!!! Personally, Tino was nothing short of inspirational. Had a good day out at Carlisle today lads - minus the rain.

I thought Asprilla was a great player for Newcastle, Parma and Columbia. Incredible debut, incredible hatrick against Barca. He was tempremental, though, which was a huge limitation on his career.

I was suprised to see him on that list since there were certainly worse tranfers than his.

I only mentioned his name because he was well known, not necessarily because I agreed!
