    The worst buy this season has to be Lampard. I can't honestly understand why Chelsea bought him. What has Lampard actually achieved in the Premiership? On the other hand Poyet is a bargain.
    Ross Peacock, England


    Good old ross he wrong could one man be?!?

    Oh and.....

    Disaster: Ruud van Nistelrooy because of his injuries.
    Madan, India


    \the most expensive flop will be Man Utd's Van Nistlerooy. He looked good in pre-season, but when they played in the Charity Shield he didn't look sharp enough.

    Yeah what a disaster Ruud turned out to be ha ha ha!

    Good find this!

    A lot of people got it spot on with Jeffers though. A lot of evertonians I know talk about that being the greatest transfer out of Goodison ever.

    I think a big change in the team whether it is new money coming in or a new player brings out the best in a player. Same thing happened to Beckham when he was at ManU. When Proborsky came on to the scene, Beckham had to work hs butt off to get a place. Made him the player he is today i think... be it still mediocre ;)

    At the time Jeffers was excellent, 20 goals in 60 games and a lot of those were as a sub. He got cocky after he left though, and injuries took their toll heavily on him. He *could* have been great.
