January Transfer Window Review: Ranking The 10 Worst Deals

Wow! More than £150 million was spent during yesterday's incredible finale to the circus parade that is the English January transfer window.

Big arrivals, big departures.

In particular, it was a massive day for two football clubs: Chelsea and Liverpool.

The former welcomed 26 year-old Spanish forward and World Cup winner Fernando Torres, dubbed "El Niño" (at once The Kid and The Hurricane), in his homeland for his youthful face but explosive qualities.

In Liverpool, The Reds bemoaned the loss of such a prolific marksman but welcomed two new exciting faces to their Melwood training complex, Uruguayan Luis Suarez and Englishman Andy Carroll, to form a potentially lethal forward partnership designed to help the club back to the heady days of domestic and European glory.

But were these the right moves for each club and were there any other transfers which polarised the opinions of the footballing world or which merely bemused fans?

I count down what I regard as the 10 worst signings made yesterday and in January overall.

Feel free to comment.
