      At this rate, I'd rather like to see "the next wonderkid" thread; Suso, Pacheco etc, if those doesn't count in this thread.

      Robbie Keane is an odd one in the sense he was a class player and should have been a star here. As you mentioned I think part of the problem was Rafa. Still wish Robbie had been given more time.

      For me the one that currently sticks out is Moreno. Wonder goal against Tottenham but sh*t apart from that. Majorly at fault for our Europa leage final collapse against Sevilla.

      Keane was forced on Rafa. It was a signing that was never going to work as we had success with Gerrard playing just behind Torres so there was no need to interfere with that and add Keane to the mix. We needed to sign a top left winger that summer and we would have won the league.

      Bollocks it was Rafa, Keane got his chances with Nando being injured early doors. If Keane was't such a smart arse i.e the f**king Atleti game in Madrid. Had a chance to put us 2 ahead with a simple tap in and instead tried some smart arse skill and fu**ed it up. F**k all to do with Rafa.

      For what we forked out v what we got back is why I have him, and have hom so high. He wouldnt be near my worst ever players list ( I think)

      Also these lists are just my own view defo open to debate, which is what I wsnt really.

      He may not have been an instant hit but we know why Keane was kicked out after 6 months, and it was nothing to do with his ability or form. If every signing was judged after just 6 months, then anyone who didn't hit the ground running would be sold off. Fabinho, Robbo, Thiago, Keita etc.

      I could fit any one if not all of El Zhar, Ngog, Nunez, Adam, Aquilani, Jovanovic, Traore, Diao, Aspas, Arphexad, Gonzalez or Vignal onto the list. So I don't know how you couldn't find a spot for any of them instead.
