Worst transfers In EPL in recent times Part-2
As I had mentioned in my previous article the disastrous transfer dealings made by the Premier League clubs, I myself made a blunder of leaving out some crucial players whose club owners maybe secretly mourn their precious money wasted. So here are some more of the transfers dealing gone wrong.
1.Kieron Dyer: The free agent purchase to the newly promoted QPR was widely criticized. He is 32 and yet has started only in 18 matches out of 47 at West Ham. He has 33 international cap but is always known for his persistent injuries. Ten days after his West Ham debut he was sidelined with a career threatening injury and 3 mins into his QPR debut he was stretchered off with an injured foot. This is certainly not a good deal for the side from Loftus Road.
2.Fernando Torres: If Roman Abramovich was given the boon to change one mistake of his life, it would surely be this. Following a season of turmoil this goal machine was transferred for a record fee of 50 million euros to Chelsea was a real disaster. A paltry sum of 5 goals in 36 appearances is not what was actually expected of him. He is quick with the ball, dribbles it well but missed several goals including a howler against Manchester United. This is surely one fine sum of money gone down the drain.
3.Jonathan Woodgate: Stoke City is renowned to sign players with great physique and fitness with strength and aggression. Well this is not what fits in. Former Spurs man had only 49 appearances for the club and has been injury plagued. If he stays fit he can be a good catch at a cheap price. But he is likely to get himself injured for months, a big disadvantage.
