English Premier League: 40 of the Biggest Flops in Premiership History

As this season has now come to a close and teams go off on their holidays for a few weeks, the excitement starts to build again in fans as to just who their club will be buying in the summer. All the rumours and gossip in the papers gets fans drooling at the prospect of seeing Europe’s finest pull on their beloved team’s shirt.

However, not all transfers work out like a beautiful marriage. You may have been excited when it happened, but what about at the end of the season? How about when your manager decides to splash all his cash on an ageing striker from Peru who hasn’t scored in two years? Let’s face it, there have been some bad ones!

Now fans always have a debate and argue about how to define a "flop," but I’ve gone off players who have either failed to improve their club, cost their club too much money in the long run or players who are simply just not good enough for that team. It’s irrelevant how good they’ve become since moving on, I’m looking at them at that stage of their careers.  Also, players who suffered career ending injuries weren’t included.
