how about Andreas Andersson, Sweedish striker. and Papin, after winning the Golden Ball while playing at Marseille , he really didnt had a succesfull spell at Milan with 18 goals in 2 seasons. Maybe not really bad, but for a Golden ball winner not Good.

And considering he was, for a shot period, the world's most expensive footballer.

As much as I was a huge Redondo fan, I was never happy that we were after him, let alone when we bought him, it was one of those "I have a bad feeling about it", and at the end it was, cause we overspend it with a 31 injury prone year old, who was bearly able to show us his classy game.

Moreno and Jose Mari will always be my favorite WTH were they thinking buys (but hey it could have been worse, we could have ended up with Gaizka Mendieta costing us much much more!) I was also never a fan of Umit Davala, I scratched my head about us buying Taribo West, both Ba buyings weren't great (at least the last one wasn't too much). Oh, Chamot too, why did we got him?

Many of the players we bought a year or 2 before, that ended up in Barcelona can get a nod.

Lentini and Gilardino the worst but the most ridiculous transfer was Luther Blisset, our scouts had seen John Barnes (great player in his day) and reported back that the black Jamaican striker playing for Watford was World Class and we should snap him up. Sadly there was more than one black Jamiacan striker playing at Watford at that time and we ended up buying the wrong one - the far inferior Luther Blisset. The club soon learnt of its mistake and sold him back to Watford after his first season for only half the money spent on him.

I remember a story of buying Jordan. The storyteller said that he saw 35 year old Cruyff being tested with us but he was said to be too old. Instead we got Jordan and hit Serie B

Shut your mouth! Joe Jordan was a legend!

Besides it wasn't his fault we got relegated, he wasn't the accountant responsible for the "financial irregularities" that got us demoted.

No-no. Jordan came when we got back to A and fell to B with our brave performances on the filed. At least I got the story like that.

The second time was a result of the first as far as i'm concerned, nothing Joe could have done... except score more gols

He was a character atleast.

I'd like to talk about last 5-6 years' transfer cos before that we have made so many bad transfer that I lost count.

Firstly, Laursen. Overpriced + shitty performances.

Rivaldo could be counted as a bad transfer if we look at his performances here, but we had bought him for free, so the move wasn't that bad I guess.

Vieri, I like him normally. But he was 32 when he left Inter to sign for us, and it was clear that he wasn't gonna make it. We had purchased him for free too, so he wasn't that bad either.

Gila is as quality as a normal backup striker for Milan, so he was overpriced too.

Rui was another overpriced bloke.

A lot of people would say Favalli, but I don't think he is so bad. He came as a backup player and we got him for free.

Same for Ba. He is just another Esajas case. He should be barely considered as a 'transfer'.

Oli. No comments needed.

Kalac.

The worst transfer ever made was selling Shevchenko and signing Oliveira to replace him. That move almost doomed us for the season if it wasn't for Ronaldo. With that much money in their hands, our management still managed to sign the cheapest option available and that guy turned out to be a major waste of money.

When talking of a worst transfer, the fee paid should not be the only expenditure listed. Take Ballack's free transfer as an example ... wages should also be taken into consideration.

Really?

Before Digao, our first exercise in nepotism (here figuratively speaking) was signing Esajas, who was more of a waste of space than Oli. Thanks, Clarence.
