Knew Balotelli would be sh*te. Same with Carroll. A fit 38 game a season Carroll had potential to be a beast if you played a certain way which we never would, we’ve been built on pass and move.
Harry Kewell tops the list for me here. Buzzing when we signed him and he was sh*te. Still haven’t forgiven him for his shithouse performance in Istanbul and begging to go off when the going got tough. He was a match of the day player, still scored some nice goals but games just passed him by every week. Lazy sod.
Joe cole comes close too. Have no animosity towards him but I thought he would be boss for us and he was sh*te too. Clearly finished before he came here.
Most recently its naby. I wouldn’t say he’s been sh*te for us, some good performances actually, but we haven’t seen anywhere near what he’s capable of or the performances he produced while in Germany.
