Five big-money Premier League failures (1)

Published 2 Comments

When people think about the Premier League, it's often brilliant players or magical goals which immediately spring to mind.

But, for every success story in the English top flight, there are signings, moments and decisions which didn't work out quite so well.

And, it's those bad signings that we're going to be focusing on today, as GiveMeSport remembers the big-money buys which failed to meet the hype over time at their new home.

We've unsurprisingly put our focus on five of the division's biggest teams - mainly because they are the ones who spend vast sums of money and expect excellence in return.

It doesn't always work out like that though, as the likes of Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson have found out on a number of occasions in the past.

And so, without further ado, we present five of the greatest big-money failures in Premier League history. Don't forget to have our say, and let us know who you think should have been on the list...
